Not a nuisance

San Luis ObispoAugust 9, 2013 

In response to Jeff Eidelman’s complaint “Choppers a nuisance” in The Tribune Aug. 6: Yes, there is a helicopter training school in San Luis Obispo, and yes, military helicopters are flying in and out of our airport and PG&E is utilizing helicopters to replace power poles in our area.

Yes, the sound of a helicopter in the following situations would be music to my ears: medevac for an injured person, wildfire support to protect homes and businesses, search and rescue, repairing local power lines or dropping emergency supplies by the Air National Guard in times of disaster.

I do not consider the sound of helicopters a nuisance.
