To hell with heli-tourism, shift this helipad

The muchhyped heli-tourism project of the state government landed in controversy with the locals expressing strong opposition to the noise pollution. The helipad is located in Sundipeta Sports Ground, the only playground serving for 10 schools and colleges in Srisailam mandal. The sound emanating from the chopper is causing disturbance to the students of educational institutions that surrounded the helipad.

It may be recalled that the Sumit Aviation Corporation has been permitted to run helicopter service from Hyderabad to Srisailam at a cost of Rs 14,800 per head. Similarly, a joy trip is being conducted charging Rs 2500 per head to enable tourists to catch glimpse of the Nallamala forest region and the River Krishna. The problem of helipad cropped up as the Revenue department has no helipad in the Srisailam Devasthanam limits.
