Rant

Post by don for »

Hi all. I've come on here out of frustration at the apparent lack of somewhere to complain.

I seem to live on a helicopter route. My house is at the top of a small hill and I am plagued with helicopters flying directly over or very near my house. Most times its just annoying but occasionally they fly very close. I once phoned Cashel gardai to report dangerous flying.
My theory is that these helicopters are following a line of sight between somewhere and the Rock of Cashel.
Do helicopters navigate by visible landmarks? should they increase their altitude as they aproach higher ground? Is it possible to encourage pilots that navigate from landmark to landmark, to vary their route slightly, rather than continually buzzing the same house?
