It’s not just Hilo and Kona! The Makiki area of Oahu is negatively impacted by air traffic noise every day.
I live in lower Manoa/Makiki area near Punahou School and NextGen has created a flight path for military and commercial helicopters and small fixed wing aircraft overhead. A near constant stream of them, clearly following the same flight path. They run from before sunrise, throughout the day and most of the night.
The house rattles, we have to suspend conversation or pause a movie on t.v. and they disrupt our sleep each time a plane or helicopter flies over.
Please re-direct the NextGEn superhighway over the ocean, restoring the pre-NextGen patterns as closely as possible and bring back our relatively quiet city neighborhood!
