Thank you to Friends of Aviation and Juneau's flightseeing operators for publishing their newsletter and distributing it to the community. I believe it helps to spell out who the players are and identify what is being done to address issues. Yes, I work in the tourism industry, but I also recognize that these companies have worked very hard to find common ground with the community. They continue to work to minimize the impacts of their operations, while providing flightseeing opportunities that are recognized across the country as being world-class experiences. It is true that some residents are more sensitive to noise than others and the efforts of the operators will not appease everyone. However, they are professionals and part of this community. I applaud their efforts in trying to make a difference.
