Following last week's tragic airplane accident on the Upper East Side which exposed gaping holes in New York City's aviation security and the city's vulnerability to terrorism, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today called on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to complete a top-to-bottom assessment of the New York airspace in the next 90 days. On Friday the FAA imposed a nwe regulation requiring pilots to seek
specific permission from air traffic control to fly over the East River corridor but did not look at a host of other security issues for the New York airspace. Today Schumer asked the FAA to complete this study and look at nine specific issues. He also demanded that the FAA focus on terrorism, not just safety when making new regulations for New York.
