Hashing Out the Helicopter Noise Problem

New, 8 comments

Yesterday, the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee's Aviation Subcommittee held a hearing (stop snoring!) about Los Angeles's helicopter noise problem. Van Nuys Congressman Howard Berman, who's introduced legislation that would require the FAA to regulate helicopter flight paths and minimum altitudes, testified that "LA is unique in having helicopters operated by tourism companies or the paparazzi hover over residential areas to peer into celebrity homes or to just get an eagle eye view of the Hollywood sign."
