SANTI, California – Families and communities are still shocked by a plane crash in Sante on Monday.
Two lives were lost. Two houses were completely destroyed, some were damaged. As the community works to pick up the pieces, questions arise as to how we can prevent this from happening again.
“People are nervous. “When those planes come over our city, they are a little lower,” said Santi Mayor John von W. Minton.
This is not the first time that Santi has had to reassemble parts after a plane crash.
“We will survive all this. This is not our first tragedy in Santi. It is a resilient community. It’s a loving community, “said Mayor Minton.
Locals living in Santé այլ and other neighborhoods near airports are now asking: “How can this be avoided?”
Qin Carpe runs the Diversion Vector Aviation Consulting. His job is to help companies work better with the aviation community.
“Montgomery, il ilespin և Miramar are really tangled because the access routes to their runways intersect,” said Carpe. “They ended up like this (hands and arms cross). “This is where air traffic control comes in. It divides those planes.”
Carpe explains why there is a growing relationship between communities and airports.
“When the airports were built, there was really nothing about them. “Small population in the San Diego area, even in southern San Diego – agricultural land, agricultural land,” said Carpe. “Cities have mostly moved to a shorter distance from the airport where the airport can operate properly.”
Carpe says it is a difficult struggle to change the flight path and altitude.
“As long as they (aircraft and pilots) meet the minimum safe altitudes set out in that federal order, it is considered safe.”
Another question that has been asked is whether small planes can fly where they want. No. But in some cases there is room to move.
“You can not regulate the operation of aircraft, pilots – other factors that could lead to a crash. You can’t handle it because everything is real-time. “
Mayor Minto says he thinks there is more pilot error that needs to be addressed.
“Many pilots will fly in the example of a real flight. They will leave the runway, cut short from the western end of the city, then come to the eastern end of the city, cut from the sky. “Ranch Development,” said Mayor Minton. “That ceiling has to be higher so that people feel safe. “Let’s respect our community, fly the right way, stay at a good altitude, be safe over Santi.”
Carpe advises communities near airports who have problems to start talking immediately with those airports և governing bodies about the coexistence horse.
If any changes need to be made, as provided by the federal government, the airport և community can jointly petition the federal government for facilities.
