ANALYSIS OF RURAL COMMUNITY PERCEPTIONS OF HELICOPTER NOISE

Helicopter noise intrusion in rural areas of Hawaii is described, and the impacts on exposed and nonexposed communities are compared using a mail-back survey. Analysis of variance, factor analysis, and logistic regression revealed factors underlying the attitudes and perceptions of residents, their preferred choice of filing complaints, and their level of tolerance to helicopter flyovers. Among the most important attributes were residential location, level of exposure, general attitudes toward growth, and propensity to complain. Specific recommendations are made. Whereas most results are specific to one geographic area, the methodology, general behavioral findings, and recommended actions could be useful elsewhere.
