Schumer Urges FAA to Increase Long Island Airport Inspections

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) this week called on the Federal Aviation Administration to increase local airport safety checks following a recent string of small plane crashes on Long Island. The senator said FAA ramp inspections, which determine if airports are in compliance with federal regulations and safe operating practices, have dropped 70 percet at New York airports in the past decade. He urged the FAA to reverse that trend during a news conference Monday at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, the site of the eighth small plane crash on LI so far this year, the most since 2012. Schumer noted that the crashes and inspections aren’t directly linked.
