Advisory group looks at flights over Denali

Posted: Tuesday, April 15, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A new advisory group is looking into the air traffic over Denali National Park.

The group's members come from the aviation industry, the public and agency representatives.

The group is charged with assessing the over flight situation and coming up with ways to minimize dangers and impacts, according to park service spokeswoman Kris Fister. The committee will look at ways to assure safety of passengers, pilots, mountaineers, as well as looking at the impact on people on the ground and their park experience.

Impact considerations include aircraft noise and altitude when passing over the national park, Fister said.

Any changes will be voluntary since the park service has no jurisdiction over the air space.
