I signed it with the suggestion to establish corridors and altitudes to promote noise abatement. As a lover of aircraft and airplane noise ( I still look skyward at the sound of an aircraft ) and living within a mile of the airport, when we had active sky diving activity and a loaded 210 climbed for what seemed endlessly to release its load and then repeat the chore, it gets pretty annoying listening to the same drown weekend after weekend. The jump school operator and or his pilots should have considered the noise footprint and altered their climb profiles.

We recently 'modified' the pattern at our little airport as a left turn out to pattern on departure would go right over the village and new housing development. Granted there is not usually that much traffic except for the Saturday loafers fly in but we thought it would be best to be a bit proactive. The airport itself (private) was established in the late 1960's and quite inactive for a number of years but activity has picked up again in the past few years. Of course the new housing development was built right under the crosswind pattern......thus the change.

East Hampton has a tower from May 1st until October 30th and even with them controlling the approach direction etc., it is considered too noisy and busy.
