In the aftermath of the Aug. 8 small plane-helicopter collision over the Hudson River, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association supports safety measures but doesn't want to see policies enacted that are too rigid. "We would not support closing the corridor because there are less onerous ways to address safety concerns," AOPA's Chris Dancy said. "What needs to be done is to give the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) the time to investigate. Then we as an organization are ready to look at all the alternatives to improve safety."
