Aloha,

Here are some public comments from the social media. This gives an over-view of a few public sentiments.

Judy Hones Magin You should hear them over Makiki.


Liz Fischer Hawaii DOD (HING/ HIANG) rotary pilots are notorious about low flights …town side in particular

TuBou Naeata Ha’ungatau Annoying. I swear they don’t give a damm.

ElizaBeth Leeds
ElizaBeth Leeds No “tickets” for them, tho.

Ria Keltz-Remenar You should be able to turn them in. Unless, they are military. They fly low late every night!!!

Stacy Lau
Stacy Lau Get the “N” number and turn them in to the FAA!

Jason Blair That is a total waste of time. Did it hundreds and hundreds of times. Unless they crash. The FAA doesn’t care, at all.

Carol Medeiros We live up on the mountain and they fly right over our house we live in Sunset Beach

Sunny Kim Unga I’m confused with the regulations. I thought that there was a flyover regulation but was told that helicopters don’t have any flyover distance regulations….

Choon James Part 91 is comprised of basic regulations relating to general operating and flight rules. There is also Part 135 with flight equipment regulations.
But Part 136, Appendix A is SPECIFIC TO HAWAII, which is the regulatory section that these operators always ignore, and are allowed to ignore without enforcement, so they can fall back on Part 91 and fly wherever they want, whenever they want, and however they want.

Marc Naval Choon…not sure where you got your information but it’s incorrect. 14 CFR 91.119 states: “(b) Over congested areas. Over any congested area of a city, town, or settlement, or over any open air assembly of persons, an altitude of 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2,000 feet of the aircraft.
(c) Over other than congested areas. An altitude of 500 feet above the surface, except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In those cases, the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500 feet to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure.” ALSO, A helicopter may be operated at less than the minimums prescribed in paragraph (b) or (c) of this section, provided each person operating the helicopter complies with any routes or altitudes specifically prescribed for helicopters by the FAA;

Marc Naval i stand corrected. Are you sure they are air tours? it could be training flights. and are your eyes calibrated to tell the difference between 1000’ and 1500’?

Alethea Rebman You were wrong once. Why try to keep arguing with Choon? 😂

Choon James Marc Naval Interestingly, I now know better the altitude difference after seeing the 75th Anniversary fly over Oahu on August 27, 2020. Tour helicopters buzzing over our roofs or hovering along the coastlines are definitely too close.

Alan Dunston Marc Naval as a prior naval aviator with a commercial license, I can’t even tell the difference of 500ft separation from the ground. Unless it’s between 0ft and 500ft.

Marc Naval It’s the Military I’m concerned with when I hear them fly over Ka’a’awa at 1045pm! REALLY! 1045pm?

Matt Ka’ai Every day in Kapolei. Military late at night shakes the whole house, glider planes flying really low too..it sucks but what can I do?

Sam Chung-Hoon ” If I had a rocket launcher…..” LOL

Tim Shandog Shanley Sam Chung-Hoon careful there


Brenda Mariano Ive made many complaints its not just tour helicopters. There are private aviation businesses teaching students how to fly and they circle around & around over my house starting at 6am. I have asked them to stop and came across some real jerks.
Lani Lea Sky Tours
Barber’s Point Flight Schools
George’s Aviation Services
These people have blatant disrespect for residential communities & families. I am tired of hearing their dam engines all day long. My family cannot even sit down and have a nice peaceful dinner hour. They fly low and circle up to 8pm 9pm at night.

They charge hourly rates to teach people how to fly over residential homes in both small airplanes & helicopters.
We have tried reaching out to the FAA and Ed Case’s Office. BTW FAA don’t care they’re all friends in cohoots. They operate their business at my families expense. No peaceful enjoyment in our home.

Larry Schultz How about the military!? Yesterday I watched military choppers go between buildings!!!

Neil Young Pearl City had the worst problem with helicopters flying low…. And at night too!

Andrew Gomes How can we put an end to it and address it?

Stanley Muneoka We get them every dam friday in waikiki when hilton used to have their fireworks

Phillip Guerrero Sr. for the police to fly over residential area 500′

Kathy Teixeira O think Waimanalo too…


Vai Kalaukoa Nope! I love in Palolo and they fly right over my Hale.
