Helicopters a Worse Offender


Thank you for bringing attention to the airplane noise over Laguna and Newport Coast.  It has reached epic proportions of getting out of control (“Fuming Over Jet Noise,” June 24 edition.)

However, one major point should be mentioned.  It is not so much the jet noise that is so offensive. It is all the helicopters that seem to be going over all day long at way below the mandatory altitude of 500 feet! There are days [and nights] it seems that a copter goes slowly [and loudly] by every minute or so!

City Hall and specifically John Pietig should focus its attention to the out of control helicopter noise [think “Apocalypse Now”] and let the FAA and airport controllers know!  Does anyone else agree?
