This does not involve a big commercial airport like JFK or PHL. It’s a little general aviation field. Heck, according to the website, the refueling gas pumps are self-service.

I have been unable to find a link telling me when the airport was founded, though it seems to have been there more than five years.

It is difficult to sympathize with the home owners.

George and Margaret Osipovs sued the Chesapeake Airport Authority in 2004, saying the airport’s noise and traffic decreased the value of their home.

Chesapeake hired a platoon of private lawyers to convince a judge that there had been no legal damage. The city lost, appealed all the way to the state Supreme Court, and lost again.

    According to the article, the airport was built in 1977. The houses were built in the early 1990’s. It makes absolutly no sense to build a housing development anywhere near an airport.

    And the greedy people who bought the houses next door to an airport, win suits over noise. That’s just bogus.

    It’s no wonder I can’t stand……. never mind.
