Friday’s editorial wades into the recent dustup between Helicopter Adventures and the business’s Plantation Point neighbors:
What happens when the letter of the law runs into less well-defined limits such as civility and politeness? We end up with situations such as the one now involving Helicopter Adventures.
The business, set up to offer aerial tours of the area, opened its doors in May and quickly earned the ire of its new neighbors in the Plantation Point development, who loudly complained about the noise made by the aircraft as they took off and landed near their homes. Nevermind that the company had followed all of the rules in setting up its business, talking with county officials and jumping through all the hoops required by local laws.
