Long Island issue: helicopters in my backyard

(excerpt from) The Suffolk Times
Article by Julie Lane

Legislation that would require an FAA study of helicopter flight patterns over the region has been passed by the House, but change won’t come in time to provide relief to local residents this summer…

If the bill passes in the Senate and goes into law, the FAA would have up to six months to issue a report that addresses the routes and altitudes for helicopters and makes recommendations to reduce noise and safety concerns.

“Those of us who live in Suffolk County are tired of the roar of helicopters disrupting the serenity of our island,” Mr. Bishop (D-Southampton) said, announcing the bill’s passage…

…Robert Grotell, special adviser to the helicopter council, talked about voluntary efforts to get the helicopter pilots to use alternative routes. But the alternatives were expensive, requiring the helicopters to fly wide of Long Island before making a cut across the island to the South Fork, where most of the traffic was headed. That meant using more fuel to fly longer distances and more time to travel from New York City to the Hamptons.
