The noise of flyovers from the Merritt Island Airport has steadily increased since 2008 when the county, in their wisdom, decided it was safe and appropriate to lease facilities to a flight school.

At on point the aeronautical division of FIT had also begun training flights from CIO (Merritt Island Airport). After direct communication with Dean Stackpole he investigated the situation and assured us, the local residents, that they would no longer train from CIO. He has been his word.

However, Space Coast Aviation continues to train new pilots and they fly constant patterns over our homes day and night doing "runways" and "touch and goes". This has drastically altered our peaceful way of life.

We have lived near this airport for 30 years and have had no trouble with noise and dangerously low aircraft.

We must join TOGETHER to make our voices heard and have the county restrict all flight schools to Tico Airport which patterns out over the Indian River.

Working on a web page for information dissemination and petition signing. Will be up soon.

Aviation Board Meeting @ Tico airport adm. building Thur. 21st of June @ 8:30 Am. Your presence will help!!!

Brent, over there at Space Coast Aviation will laugh in your face and hang up on you.

I am hoping I meet up with him in a dark alley some day.

Hi Charlie,

I know you are are right about Space Coast Aviation.......They don't give a damn. They have a 10 year lease with 2 five year options. They are also the "fuel farm" at the airport. Another blunder by our county officials. No projected study of impact to local residents and businesses.

We can and will make a change to this situation. If not by cooperation..........then by the legal process.

Please.......if these planes impact you ...join us in seeking to move all flight schools out of merritt island airport.

I was beginning to think the entire Space Coats was on drugs not even hearing the noise. You really have to be on drugs not to hear planes doing continuous loops over your house day and night.

I am just as concerned for the people of Brevard not knowing what peace even is. Most of these people are just plain lemmings. It will be interesting to see how many people are actually aware of this constant noise.

It will also be great to send Brent packing. I will personally pay him a visit and let him know how happy I am that he will no longer pollute my air with noise and fuel. I was seriously considering hunting him down like a wild hog. That feeling may come back again too.

The School has been there longer than most of you have been living there, it's been around close to 30 years, so if you don't like it, pack your shit up and leave, you want to buy a house by an airport, you deal with the consequences (this being noise) stop complaining and leaving threats (Charlie) and deal with it. idiots x

You are so out of order. Those of us affected by the noise and endangered by students in extremely low flying aircraft have been living in our homes for well over 30 years. And, for your information, the airport was established for mosquito control planes, no flight schools. This problem will be solved when the traffic control is built at COI. This will stop the onslaught of reckless students and instructors from impacting the daily lives of so many citizens.

Perhaps you need to be a local resident to make comments about something you really have no information!

You are so right! Working with the Airport Authority locally to bring in support and dollars for an traffic control tower to be built at the Merritt Island Airport just might avert an accident with planes that fly so very low over outlying residential areas when there is so much water for them to fly over and not endanger us!

They have all the politicians bought off. Anyone with an ounce of sense knows they should be practicing out in the swamp like they always have. Fuel is too expensive for them now and cuts into their profits. It doesnt matter to them that they drive dogs, cats, nature and man batty and puts us all at risk. They will try to make you look crazy for wanting peace in your own home no matter how long this God forsaken airport has been there. I dont think it has been there anywhere near the time my house has (not even close). They will make up a new story to justify their psychotic behavior until we physically remove them. Trust me, thats the way its gonna be. These politicians dont care and probably watching dancing with the stars with the volume all the way up happy as clams. To think so little people even realize the absolute racket in the sky constantly really worries me. These people obviously have no idea what peace is nor would know it even if they had it. They have to be on prescription drugs.

Like every other area in America today there is no respect for others, doesnt matter what the little people say or think, they are going to do it anyway. They will bomb folks today and take their money teaching them to fly tomorrow as long as there is $ to be made. They never think about the final repercussions that will no doubt come soon like a hurricane.

Is this forum still in process? It is Dec 2012 and I am just now finding this site. The noise from the planes flying over our homes throughout the morning, day and night has got to come to an end. If anyone out there nows anything about the community getting together to make a stop to this, please let me know. I would like to be a part of this and several of my neighbors are also tired of this. Just wondering what groupls may have already been formed so we can get together and bring our peaceful community back!

Please contact me at spacelady8@gmail.com. We have a group of unhappy citizens who are looking for ways to stop this practice of low flying planes over residential neighborhoods.
