Court Rules in Favor of Helicopter Noise Opponents

A win for the local people of Hawaii island.

(BIVN, MAY 2020) – Hawaiʻi island helicopter noise opponents are celebrating a legal victory today.

HICoP, or the Hawaii Island Coalition Malama Pono, a non-profit “with the sole purpose of returning serenity to Hawaii free from tour copter noise nuisance pollution and safety from tour copter crashes”, reported on Friday that The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit returned a favorable ruling.

HICoP joined with PEER, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, in a lawsuit over the FAA and National Park Service failure to implement mandated Air Tour Management Plans for parks, including Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, which HICoP says is the most tour copter impacted park in the nation.
