As a resident of Enchanted Lake, I am well aware of the noise impact from helicopter tour operators in our region. I do acknowledge that this impact has greatly diminished with the current visitor restrictions. There is a popluar flight path that crosses Olomana and then heads into Lanikai that is quite disruptive. These flights don’t appear to have any restrictions on heights or times. I can recall hearing these flights before 7:00am and well into the evening.
I would like to request that the Task Force consider establishing restrictions on flight paths that minimize or eliminate noise disruptions to large residential areas and also provide safe zones for aircraft to land that are away from highly populated residential areas.
