We get this type of thing in Florida too. Any noise level above that of a flatulating housefly sets off the bluehairs and geriatrics.
What's even more frustrating in attempting to see their point is the low noise level of the latest jet engines..ESPECIALLY on approach, when more often than not engines are at lower power settings.
Tan flr hit the nail on the head. They didnt think about this when they bought their homes from the shameless developers who built there?
Here in Florida the ultimate eye rolls come when you see new million dollar homes going up.... on barrier islands. Wanna take a guess at how few seconds will pass after a Category 5 hurricane shreds these houses before the homeowners go whining to FEMA to reimburse them?

That could be added to my proposed Common Sense Ammendment to the Constitution.
The lawyers would never allow it since the lack of common sense is their golden egg laying goose, but under this Ammendment, citizens would be assumed to understand that coffee is hot and may burn you, any product that you purchase could, in theory, cause harm to you, there in no situation in which a human is perfectly safe, life can be risky, you are not entitled to millions if your feelings get hurt, smoking may cause you to die of cancer, it's your own fault, a person's Miranda Rights are assumed to be understood, etc, etc, etc. Just some basic assumption of common sense.
Think of the billions of dollars saved and new innovations possible if the innovators were not worried about a shyster lawyer suing them.

The FAA getting rid of a risky noise-abatement approach?? Could they actually have learned something from the Crossair crash last Nov. in Zurich? Nah... the FAA never learns common sense- kinda like our friend Huey.
