Queens senator proposes legislation that would curb ‘harmful and dangerous’ noise pollution from helicopters


State Senator Joe Addabbo is co-sponsoring four pieces of legislation that would regulate helicopters in the state, as many residents in his district are suffering from the frequent “harmful and dangerous” noise. 

Aircraft noise near neighborhoods surrounding the airports in Queens is to be expected. However, Addabbo credits an increase in noise pollution to Uber Copter, which was introduced in 2019 to offer helicopter rides between Manhattan and JFK International Airport.
