Borough Increases Allowable Helicopter Flights on Riverfront

The number of flights allowed at the Borough-owned helipad is growing. The original deal with Kynetic allowed for 12 helicopter flights per month. Last week Borough Council responded to a request from Kynetic for more allowable flights and voted 6-0 to allow up to 20 flights a month or 240 flights per year. Kynetic is also going to pay more.

We haven’t heard any complaints since the helipad first opened. Is the increase in flights going to be a nuisance to the residents on the riverfront? Let us know what you think in the comments.
