Other organizations struggling
with noise and pollution from
private aviation operations
There are many communities
impacted by the pernicious outputs
from non-essential aviation.
Many private helicopters operators are profiting from the misery their flights inflict upon communities the length and breadth of Long Island. These flights are especially disruptive where ambient noise is low, such as in rural areas on the East End. Many of these commuter helicopters/tourist flights depart from heliports in NJ and NYC.
Stop The ChopNY/NJ is a community organization
working to ban, or at least curb, the number of tourist flights over metropolitan NY/NJ communities.
Small general aviation airports across the country also are plagued by small private planes, and airports which have flight training schools make life miserable for many communities. Most users of small airports are hobbyists, flying small piston engine planes which are fueled by avgas, leaded fuel.
