The fact that helicopters fly over the strip i see has no fear of
anything. Gloria S. NY
If no helicopter has created a problem up until now, why should these
people worry about something that has never happened? Leave them
alone. Robert F Chicago IL
Im ok with helicopters over the strip. Never seem to notice them
anyway. Let them fly. Garry New Braunfels
I agree. How many people would die if just one went down. No, there
is no reason for chopers or anything else to fly over the strip.
The sound of freedom! Andrew Surprise, AZ
Sure, stop all helicopters.....then stop all the lights on so late at
night....then stop all the noise from all the people partying on the
strip.....then close all the casinos. The End margie abelson
then what is the point of having helicopters if they cant fly over
the strip. tom jacksonville, fl
Las Vegas is Vegas! Anything reasonable and sometime not goes in
Vegas! I think it is dumb standing up in the moon/sun roofs going down
the strip but we are in Vegas. Some of those flights are a business for
tourists! Leave it alone unless it is a problem! Don Turner
As a frequent visitor to Las Vegas, who primarily stays on the south
end of the strip, I can confirm that the number of helicopter flights
over the strip can totally destroy a relaxing day at the pool. During a
recent stay at Mandalay Bay, we counted at least one flight per minute.
Also many sightseeing helicopters seem to fly in between Mandalay
Bay and The Hotel @ Mandalay Bay, directly over the pools. Gene

Can't see anything unless in the front, so why have them anyway...

I agree, I think this poses a accident waiting to happen.

And while they are at it, make it a no fly zone for any aircraft, a
no drive zone for any vehicles, a no gambling zone, a no walking zone.
The list can go on for ever. Give these so called concerned people an
inch and they will grab a mile. Chuck Omaha, NE
Tell the Communists to shut up. Those military helicopters belong to
the men and women who protect there freedom to whine. Be proud of our
troops and their bases (Nellis) close by. If they don't like the
helicopters, airplanes and such.... don't come back. Rich
Hofius, MSgt (Ret.) Henderson, NV
I can understand the need to restrict the altitude of helicopter
traffic over the strip although the military should be exempt.
