Check this site out.

http://www.helicopter-noise.org.uk/

I guess there are some seriously unhappy people out there. Such a shame, especially as it looks a very nice website - if it wasn't for the fact its anti helicopter, of course!!!

I wonder if they have permission to use the photograph of the MD-500N (which has since been re-registered!)

It would be interesting to see if that poll records the voters I.P. address and then excludes repeat votes. I reckon the stats would change somewhat!

I wonder what would happen if all PPruners were to pop over and vote

Now there's a thought...........

Back in a mo..........

It does seem to recognise IP addresses as I tried to vote twice from my laptop. However, I have just managed to vote from my PC and my mobile phone - so that's three "none" from me!!

Now! How do I set up a forum against "people who think 08:00 Sunday is an appropriate time to mow the lawn"!!

Cheers

these guys are really sharp, excerpt from the "what do do if a helicopter flies from land near you section"

"4) Make a note of the helicopters 6 digit registration number (for UK registered machines this number will start with a G followed by 4 numbers then another letter). This will come in useful for formally identifying the helicopter to the authorities. "

I think this is a really good idea, I think I saw G-1212T taking off near someones house in the cotswolds earlier today

It wont let you vote if cookies are not enabled but will if you delete it so it doesnt check your ip address, just if it has dumped a cookie on your machine.


I do hope we will all use our one and only vote sensibly.

What the heck is "helicopter noise incident" ? Sticking your head into loudspeaker mounted on Law Enforcement helicopter, while someone sets it on max, and shout through it so it blow you eardrums ? Amazing it can happen to 12264+ people multiple times on everyday basis !

Excellent work chaps - the "none" vote has risen from 242 when I first saw the link to 306!

Ohh. Careful deleting them all. Your autologin to PPRuNe and everything else will go too.

Its gone up 100 since my first post. You lot are bad.

I reported 3 noise incidents since I can no longer autorotate quietly into my field due to the sanctimonius b****s on the insurance thread.

(joke - you have to spell it out otherwise it'll attract as much flak here as there)
