SOUTHAMPTON - The helicopter flight path for East Hampton Airport isn't sitting well with East End communities.

The new flight path begins in the north at Jessups Neck and shoots over the Hamptons.

The route was developed after years of complaints about noise from the previous path. Some residents say the new route made the noise worse, however.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and local officials met today to discuss ways to mitigate noise.
