LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Planes, helicopters noisier than motorcycles

Air noise is way more loud and they should have mufflers

To the editor,

Re: Loud engines need to be muffled, Letters, Sept. 5.

They whine about six seconds of ‘Harley’ sound. I live 60 metres from Victoria Road and the Harley guys frequently roast the road. Like I said, about six seconds of tuned bliss.

On the other hand, we can’t have a conversation in our yard when any airplane at 1,500 feet flies over for at least 15 seconds. It starts with ear-vibrating seaplanes at 7:30 a.m. and never ends until dark. The helicopters are just as loud and annoying. Maybe you just hate Harleys and their riders. But air noise is way more loud and they should have mufflers.
