    9. ADJOURNMENT

    In March 2015, the Daily Breeze reported that a new hotline and website
    was set up for reporting helicopter noise. Although many county residents
    are not aware that there are no minimum altitudes for helicopters
    and most flights do not appear on flight tracking systems,
    many complaints have still been lodged with the FAA’s new
    Heli-Noise-LA complaint system.

    According to Wayne Williams, a coalition board member and member
    of the Van Nuys Airport Citizens Advisory Council, the system
    has “logged a complaint on average every seven minutes,
    with more than 34,000 complaints in the past six months.”
