Small planes shouldn’t fly over Cowichan’s communities

Transport Canada allows them to fly in our area, so what happens if another engine quits and there is no highway or field to land on?

Re: “Plane comes down on Highway 18”

Yet another small plane has come down, this one in the valley, and both the pilot and anyone travelling on that highway are lucky no one was killed.

These planes fly over Chemainus and directly over our house on every nice day, sometimes every 20 minutes or so. They are extremely noisy, often flying round and round over town, sometimes cutting their engines as they dive and backfiring as the engine is started again. I am not saying these people shouldn’t fly, but they should not be flying over any community, let alone ours.
