    Can somebody tell me what the crash of a light jet on a business trip during the day has to do with abolishing touch-and-go landings by training airplanes and closing the airport at night? In the last year, this discussion has changed from one of safety to a noise conversation. The residents are grasping at straws here with their sensationalistic tales and pushing for restrictions that they label “safety changes.” The Airpark and its procedures are safe and they have worked well for decades. December’s tragedy is the only accident in 55 years that led to a ground fatality. Were the Airpark not safe, pilots wouldn’t fly here. In the interest of self-preservation, pilots don’t fly dangerously despite what this vocal minority of residents say. Own up to the fact that you chose to buy a house near an airport or move.
