Per the FAA, virtually all helicopter traffic is related to military operations, law enforcement, medical transportation, and search & rescue. Those who are bothered by noise should contact the helicopter operator directly for information regarding operations in the area.

Military Aircraft:

The FAA does not have the authority to regulate the operations of military aircraft. Contact the local military installation noise office or community relations department for more information on their operations.
