Abstract

Aircraft overflights at high altitude occur daily in almost all national parks, and number in the hundreds per day at low altitude over many parks where they are allowed. Air tours are popular with those who experience the splendor of aerial views, but create annoying noise for park visitors on the ground, negatively impacting visitor enjoyment and scenic evaluations. The conflicting interests of multiple parties make resolution difficult, but progress has been reported.
