Residents of Hampton Bays, Noyac and Sag Harbor will be seeing a lot more of this view in 2023 after East Hampton Airport and the Eastern Region Helicopter Council agreed to resume use of the "November" route for approaches to the airport, which brings helicopters in over the Shinnecock Canal and up the Peconic Bay shoreline.

Helicopters heading for East Hampton Airport in the summer of 2023 will be directed to head inland at Shinnecock Inlet and then fly up the Peconic Bay shoreline. The so-called November route had been abandoned in 2022 in favor of a route that had choppers stay out over the ocean all the way to Wainscott before making the short transition north over Georgica Pond to the airport. This year that route, known as Sierra to pilots, will only be used for departures from the airport.
