I guess if one can afford to fly a helicopter, one must fly that helicopter wherever one so pleases.

There was a guy who had a helicopter in the subdivision where I lived when I was a kid.  Pretty much the same thing.  It was so loud you would want to cover your ears even if you were inside.

He didn't keep it there for long.

The guy with the helicopter isn't being inconvenienced. The other's are just jealous they can't get a helicopter or didn't get one first.

"A landing pad on private property is required to be at least 500 feet from a dwelling or property zoned in a residential area, according to zoning records. It also requires special approval from the board of county commissioners."


But I'm sure you can build a "tennis court" without any special zoning approval.

When I was in high school, I used to spend a couple weeks every summer with my friend and his family at their place at the shore. His dad had a helicopter, so one time when it was time for me to go back home, he was going to be flying there anyway so he offered me a lift. It was awesome, he landed in a big field right behind my house. But I lived way out in the country with my closest neighbor about a mile away.

On a smaller scale, I was awakened this morning by a car alarm, one of those hooked up to the car's horn, that went on for several minutes. I have been awakened by a pair of Chinook helicopters taking off, but that was while staying at a tiny motel in BF Egypt one night. The guy with the helicopter in the article is lucky his neighbors haven't been shooting at him and his machine.

It's more-so the aluminum being the most chemically reactive metal. If I remember correctly, the only reason it doesn't disintegrate due to oxidization is because its rust is opal which creates a micro layer on it's surface, protecting it from further reaction. The mercury continually destroys this barrier, causing it to rust quickly. I've heard that Spec. Ops used it in Vietnam to destroy grounded aircraft, rusting the wings and fuselage to pieces while the troops made a clean getaway.

Got it right. There was a military contractor my me years and in NH that was refused a heliport. Their solution was to put in a tennis court for "their employees".

At *my* nefarious lair, "Omega Station", my hobby farm I'm building in New Hampshire, I constructed the driveway so that I have a 500 ft. straight section to use as an airstrip for an Ultralight. I won't have anywhere to commute to, being retired, but Omega Station will support fight operations ("set flight quarters, Omega Station") for my nefarious activities....

You should try to be in the Hamptons over memorial day. Forget the lear jets and the private planes, there are also helicopter taxi services to and from NYC. It's like a God damned army base overhead some times.

But it's only for a minute or two. Try living with a motorcross team at the same distance, revving all hours.

Or a herd of children who walk like little dogs upstairs for hours on end.

Out at Dyess AFB, the B-1s are incredibly loud. You can hear them taking off from the other side of town. It is easy to put up with because it doesn't last long and that's the only sound you hear from them. The C-130s, on the other hand, will sit on the ground and run their engines for an hour and it is clearly audible inside. Ironically, they are practically silent taking off.

I don't know. Think about how many careless/bad drivers you deal with in a week. Then imagine them trying to pilot a flying car.
