WELCOME. Large numbers of helicopters are flying to and from the Airport in Torrance, California, causing lots of noise in otherwise quiet neighborhoods in Torrance and surrounding communities. There are THOUSANDS of helicopter flyovers a year in the Hollywood Riviera neighborhood alone, 2 miles west of the Airport.
This site is dedicated to informing the public about helicopter noise issues, and organizing public support for reducing noise impacts on residents.
In January, 2014, the United States Congress has passed legislation directing the Federal Aviation Administration) to collaborate with the community and helicopter operators and take steps to reduce helicopter noise in Los Angeles County. Citizens for Quiet Helicopters joined with representatives of other communities and formed the Los Angeles Area Helicopter Noise Coalition (LAAHNC). We have been representing the community in collaborative meetings with the FAA and helicopter operators in an effort to bring relief from helicopter noise impacts.
