I live in East Honolulu and my neighborhood of Niu Valley experiences loud invasions of helicopter noise on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis. It is more than just a nuisance. It negatively impacts our quality of life, afflicting our health with undue stress, disrupting our sleep and depriving us the right to the quiet enjoyment of our homes. It’s not just a noice issue, it’s a safety issue. Over the past 40 years, there have been more than 60 crashes in Hawai‘i, nearly 20 with fatalities. In total, over 50 passengers and 11 pilots have died, with helicopters crashing into not just airstrips, but downtown and residential homes. We need a safer Hawai‘i that’s also more livable for residents. Mahalo, Jeannine Johnson
