Tracker Makes More Noise

Tracker, our noisy neighbours, seem to be returning to their helicopter "joyride" days. Their offices are less than 400m (as the crow flies) from a functioning helipad, but that's not good enough for these guys. They'd rather the helicopter lands on the lawns in a designated nature reserve, where there is no wind sock, with tall trees and buildings nearby.

I hope they got CAA permission this time, although I doubt it. And, of course, their public liability insurance wouldn't cover a helicopter crash in a suburb if it was unauthorised.
Tracker specialises in noisy behaviour at their offices. On Thursday 17th April, during the middle of a "load shedding" blackout, they held a noisy function in their parking garage, playing their music loud enough to be heard blocks away, especially since the only other sound that could be heard was the noise of their backup generators in an otherwise silent neighbourhood.
