EAST HAMPTON - Residents on the East End gathered to voice their concerns about noise from low-flying helicopters Wednesday night.

A special meeting was held in Wainscott to discuss the issue residents say is disrupting their quality of life.

Elected officials from neighboring towns are urging East Hampton lawmakers not to renew a deal with the FAA that virtually gives choppers free reign of the town's air space.

A representative from the helicopter council says they are not underestimating their opponents and are working with airport officials to abate the noise.
