AdminLB Posted June 18, 2010 Report Share Posted June 18, 2010 Grave Threat to Helicopter Industry - Need Industry to Take Action by June 24, 2010 Due to pressure from New York Senator Charles Schumer, the FAA is looking to pass new mandatory VFR flight corridors for helicopters over Eastern Long Island. This is being done SOLEY for noise abatement reasons. If this passes, this could be the one greatest threat to helicopter aviation in this history of modern flight. This could enable and empower the FAA to create restrictions on helicopter flights based on noise complaints. This has far reaching consequences.
