To The Editor: 

As I sat here typing this letter at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning on Father’s Day, I hear a loud and buzzing sound coming from the direction of the Cape May County Airport. Yesterday it lasted from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. The sounds that the planes make are very annoying and they last all day. It's been going on for three days.


1. Do they need a permit to fly like they do around populated areas? 

2. Does the Federal Aviation Administration know about this type of flying? 

3. Are there any safety factors to be considered? 

4. Why not fly over the bay or the ocean?

This is the second year of this and it is annoying. Just when you think you are going to have a nice, quiet, Father’s Day on your front porch and enjoy the weather, you get to listen to planes buzzing around your house. I hope it is not going to be like this all summer.
