Default RE: Why turbines are banned?

If it's not the fire risk, or the speed difference being hazardous it will be noise. I'm in a 'noise sensitive' club & I can already hear rumblings about the noise from the envious ones & those who think the latest method of power is a rubber band. Any ideas on making them quieter apart from limiting the max RPM once in the air? On my wood sport jet fully enclosing the engine with long intakes has reduced the intake noise to the point where it cannot be heard over the exhaust but from that point on I run out of ideas. We usually only fly small jets, mine's a Wren 54 size. - John.
