I also live very close to the airport. My kids enjoy watching these planes. These are Aerobatic Planes and Chris Meyer (the owner) makes these planes, he moved here from Florida and he will be adding a lot of new jobs through his business. Just visit his website ( www.mxaircraft.com) and it will tell you all about what he plans to do for our county, not to mention all the publicity Wilkes County will be getting.

eqjunkie I live right next to the airport and chose to live there knowing there were planes in and out all day long. And this was when Lowe's and Tyson was using the airport with their big Lear's and Falcon's. Now I have to say it took some getting used to when the Lowe's Falcon came in @ 3 am in the morning, throwing it in reverse and making me sit straight up in bed out of a deep sleep. But I got use to it, in fact these MX2 planes don't hold a candle to what those corporate jets made in noise. So take on the noise ordinance issue, cause you will look like a donkey's rear end when you do. No noise ordinances in the county of Wilkes unless you live inside the city limits of WBO or NW. Also the FAA will laugh at you too. Cause this company has permits to do this stuff. Next time you post stupid stuff like this, do a little checking first! Good Day!

I live on 268 E not far from the airport as the crow flies and that plane flies over pretty much every afternoon. It's not any real nuisance to me though I've been a little apprehensive for the pilot's safety a few times. I had no clue what he was doing. He's testing planes? Is that it? Just curious. Saw him skywriting last summer. Thought it was pretty neat, myself.

He needs to go to midas and get a muffler for the plane.

Jaybo...I'm with you. My whole family goes out to watch him and our
little one thinks it's the greatest thing he ever witnessed. Honestly, I'd rather hear and watch that airplane than to meet one of those packed to the ceiling, overloaded logging trucks on the highway. Now, that's scarey!

Let him fly. I truly enjoy watching him. Rather hear that noise, then smell good ole Wilkes County Perfume all the time. If he hurts someone, then we can hang him.

I actually enjoy watching him. The sound does not bother me and we are in close proximity to the airport.

If you feel he is in violation alert the FAA.

I live more than 10 miles from the airport, and am awakened by this plane every weekend. I see regular airplanes all the time that don't make any noise at all, but this is different. It's sounds like a go-cart going up and down my driveway, all morning long.

IMO, they should not be allowed to do this on weekend mornings. Is it too much to ask for them to do this during regular working hours through the week, when it will be less bothersome?

If I bought a house next to the highway, then sure, I would expect to hear traffic noise. But I didn't. I live in a house that's several miles from the airport, and several miles from the highway, and it sucks to know that my quality of life, as well as the value of my house, is now going to go down because of this. So I feel like I have every right to complain.

You need to get your facts straight. He is a pilot for MX and that is his job. Do some checking.

Eqjunkie we'll all look forward to your appearing at the next County Commissioner's meeting and how attentively they will jump right on that noise ordinance complaint. Oh wait, since it's already the law, just call 911 and have it stopped right away. Silly me, someone as smart as you will have that stopped in no time at all.
