According to the companies making electric planes they are very rare, so any talk of these is just a non starter. The vintage planes are awful.
That's from inside the cockpit. which is like being on the inside of a drum hence it sounds so loud.
There are three sounds you can hear there, the engine exhaust noise, the wind over the airframe and the biggest noise which you CANNOT hear on the ground is the vibration of the airframe caused by the vibration of the engine (in a car this is deadened for the occupants with sound deadening material, but as that is heavy it is not used in aircraft)
The noise outside the aircraft is less than a car driving past your driveway at 30mph. If you are going to object to a planning application, you have to bear in mind FACTS not conjecture.
Sounds pretty noisey to me 😕
