Amanda Kiem writes in the East Valley Tribune about a request by the Pegasus Airpark to the Queen’s Creek Town Council to expand operations to include jets, helicopters and fuel.
Airport noise a concern for Q.C. community
Neighbors near a private airport in a Queen Creek that’s marketed to aviation enthusiasts are concerned about excessive noise if a proposal to allow helicopters and planes with jet engines at the facility is approved.
A proposal to change the types of aircraft allowed to land at Pegasus Airpark and to have jet fuel on site is scheduled to go before the Town Council on Wednesday.
Current rules allow planes that are under 12,500 pounds and have piston engines.
