  I have been receiving a lot of flack in the media due to a few people 
"complwhining" about noise from my Pitts S2-B when I perform aerobatics. The 
area I fly in is rural, and totally legal. I fly high at 2500 - 4000 feet, 
but do like to tumble.

I am wondering if anybody else gets complaints and if so how do you deal with 

I call back all complainers who leave their number. The FAA has investigated 
my flying and tell me I'm completely legal, however, still call me everytime 
someone calls with a complaint. It has gotten so bad that now I get called 
for every plane complaint and blamed even when it's not my plane!
