Bayview no fly zone?

BAYVIEW - A group of Bayview residents is hoping to ground helicopter tours taking off from their lakeside berg, saying the chopper makes it sound like a "war zone" and could scare away mountain goats.

The promoter of the helicopter tours, which debuted last weekend, said those opposing the flights represent a very vocal minority of residents and the tours could draw visitors to the tourist destination.

In one day, the helicopter rides drew more than 50 people to town, said Phil Stephan, who is promoting the tours and other summer events for businessman Chan Karupiah - owner of five Bayview marinas. Before the day was out, Stephan said, a handful of local residents were trying to shut down the operation. Full story. Taryn Thompson CdA Press
