Noise is worst than ever now, as helicopters go overhead very frequently, sometimes as often as every 15 minutes. Why can’t they at least vary their flight plans so that the noise is distributed over more areas rather than continually going over and over one area? Why can’t we require mufflers?
In addition to the tours, we also endure lots of tourist hiking rescues by helicopter here in Maunawili. It has become invasive and awful. So much for our green, quiet Windward community. This is part of the reason why local folks are fed up with over tourism.
