I don't have much sympathy for the helicopter noise problem in the Hamptons ["Debate over flight paths restarts," News, April 22]. That's the destination of virtually all the choppers.

I have a problem with the fact that most of them pass over my house on the North Fork to get there. The solution seems to be relatively simple: If you want to fly to the South Fork, fly over the ocean.

If that still causes a problem for our Hamptons brethren, then maybe they should just ban the helicopters entirely.
