This also went down at the Okaloosa County Board Meeting…
Destin residents concerned about noise from sightseeing helicopters are putting pressure on county leaders.
Scott Fischer with Holiday Isle Homeowners Association said,
“Because of the danger, nuisance, disruption of beach environment. We request the City of Destin and Okaloosa County prohibit the operation of tourist helicopters within our neighborhoods.”
I don’t live in Destin but this seems incredibly familiar to the complaint that came out of Niceville/Val-p some years back about the jet noise coming from the base.
Until I graduated high school, I lived next to Hurlburt Field where there was all kinds of noise happening at all hours of the day and night. I guess we just were used to it because I never notice a plane, bombing etc. unless someone pointed it out.
Over to you! Do you live in Destin or are affected by the helicopter noise? Thoughts on the noise complaint?
