Nearly Twice As Many As 2004
Nationwide, the number
of aviation accidents continues to decline -- but not in New
Jersey, where officials reported 44 accidents in 2005. That figure
is about twice the number of accidents for the state in 2004.
Eight of those accidents were fatal, according to the New Jersey
Star-Ledger, claiming a total of 13 lives.
As was reported in Aero-News,
one of the more high-profile accidents involved a Challenger CL-600
bizjet that overran the departure end of a runway at Teterboro
during an aborted takeoff attempt. No one was killed in the
accident, but four people were injured.
Another accident near the beleaguered airport, this one involving a Cessna
Cardinal, was fatal. The pilot died when the
single-engine aircraft went down about 1/4 east of the airport
while attempting an emergency landing.
While FAA and NTSB officials have no ready answer for why 2005
saw such a spike in the number of accidents in New Jersey, they
maintain that the figure does not mean its not safe to fly over the
"The New York-New Jersey metro area is a very busy airspace, but
it's a very safe airspace," said Federal Aviation Administration
spokeswoman Arlene Murray.
