Inhabitants of Jesencany, a part of the city of Pardubice in Eastern Bohemia, have complained about noise produced by the nearby Czech Air Force helicopter base. Jaroslav Deml, the mayor of Pardubice, said the city was going to negotiate with the army to regulate helicopter training flights. The air base says they do not break any rules by flying three to four times a week with no flights at night or at weekends and they also inform the city about their flying schedule.
