AHMEDABAD: In Paldi, Hetal Doshi has a tough time putting his children to sleep on weekend afternoons. "The noise from the helicopter of the joyride service is so loud my children get scared. I have two special children and sometimes have to give them prescription medication to put them to sleep. It is the same story from noon to 5pm every weekend, when the service operates," said Doshi. The helicopter joyride service was instated by GujSail and has been operating from the waterdrome on the Sabarmati riverfront since January. One resident has filed complaints alleging noise pollution caused by the helicopter rides with the police commissioner and municipal commissioner, copies of which the TOI has obtained. "Citizens living near the riverfront in Paldi are suffering immensely from the noise pollution caused by the helicopter joyride service that has been started at the riverfront. There is one ride every nine minutes on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and the loud noise of the chopper is causing severe mental distress. My father is 97 years old and deserves his peace and quiet in the afternoons," states the complaint by Vaishali Trivedi, a resident of Dharnidhar Society in Paldi. Echoing a similar view, Hemal Shah, a fashion designer and a resident of the area, said, "My octogenarian parents find it difficult to rest on weekend afternoons. We understand it is a joyride but why can't the timings be moved to the mornings." The waterdrome, where the helipad is, was a state government project and AeroTrans is the executing agency for joyride project. "This service is certainly a progressive social infrastructure service. The helicopter flies across the city and covers most residential areas. We don't intend to belittle the struggle of fellow residents and we do sympathize with them," said an AeroTrans spokesperson. The waterdrome earlier saw the seaplane service operations for brief period, and the joyride service was introduced in January. GujSail spokespersons could not be reached for comment. "There wasn't as much noise when the seaplane was operational. Now it is almost continuous," said Dipali Jahanara, who owns a bridalwear boutique in the area.
