Complaining about local helicopter noise is too provincial. A local complaint, a complaint wearing blinders. How could anyone say that complaining about helicopter noise, in general, is an ethical complaint? One needs to look at the larger picture. The real picture. That above all, helicopters save lives. If you hate helicopter noise, would you carry a printed card in your wallet which says you refuse emergency helicopter transport to a hospital because helicopters are too noisy? If you needed rescued due to a natural disaster or be stranded somewhere, would you refuse to be rescued by a helicopter because they are too noisy?
