HAI is urging all New York members to contact Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office immediately to oppose a bill that would allow any person to bring an action against a helicopter owner and operator for creating an “unreasonable level” of noise.
Senate Bill S7493A would allow anyone to sue a pilot, flight department, line service personnel, or company employee for alleged rotorcraft noise pollution by a flight operation in the state of New York, even if the operation complied with federal law and regulations.
The New York State Assembly passed this bill, which now has 10 days for the governor to either veto or sign into law. We need you to take action today to urge Gov. Hochul to veto New York Senate Bill S7493A and let her know that you strongly oppose this legislation that will have detrimental effects to you and business aviation. If you have already communicated with the governor, please do so again, as the matter is urgent and time is of the essence.
