I am grateful that existing noise control laws are going to be honoured now that enough complaints have been voiced. Motorcycles are not the only noisy engines of concern. Although the airport in Nelson is great, occasionally (especially recently), there is one helicopter in particular that makes this small town sound and feel like we are living in a war zone. The whap-pap-pap from this helicopter downtown actually rattles items on shelves, vibrating buildings.
Plenty of other helicopters come and go without being so invasive. Is something wrong with this particular helicopter, does it need maintenance? Is it a different kind of helicopter? If so, should it be flying over residences, repeatedly disrupting the peace?
