Robert - I sympathize with your complaints about the noise from small planes over Menlo Park. They ought to be required to exercise their expensive toys out over the ocean where they won't bother people who don't share their enthusiasm for "burning a hole in the sky," which is how amateur pilots tend to talk.
I called Palo Alto Airport in the distant past. I seem to recall that there is next to nothing that anyone can do.
This is a problem on the other side of the Bay too, and small plane noise is driving me crazy. All day long, especially on the
weekends, small private planes are buzzing above Fremont.
Fremont used to be a quiet town, but within the last few years, the airspace above it has became the training ground for flight schools and private pilots.
These recreational flyers can only practice their hobby if they have
someone else's land to fly over.
They are not simply navigating from point A to point B. They have
navigated to our back yards and are now loitering above us either
sightseeing or practicing noisy maneuvers that serve no purpose other
than to please the pilots and to enrich those who rented or sold them
