    Trop d’intrusions en bout de piste
    Deux incursions volontaires de piétons ces dernières semaines sur la piste d’atterrissage, et encore trop de bateaux qui ne respectent pas la réglementation dans la baie de Saint-Jean. Si ces incidents deviennent trop nombreux, la DGAC (Direction générale de l’aviation civile) pourrait demander à l’aéroport de prendre des mesures : fermer l’accès entre les deux parties de plage de Saint-Jean, embaucher des vigiles à temps complet, voire réduire l’espace en bout de piste ce qui conduirait les compagnies à limiter davantage le poids de leurs avions. Pour rappel, dans toute la baie de Saint-Jean, le tirant d’air des navires doit être limité à 10 mètres ; et il est bien sûr interdit de s’ancrer dans l’alignement de la piste.

    Local authorities fear that if too many incidents occur at the end of the runway (like the two recent ones) and too many boats continue to disregard the rules concerning their presence in the bay, that the French authorities will step in heavily and either close access between the the two ends of Saint-Jean beach or require full time guards on the ground or require the physical modification of the runway. À suivre . . .

    Makes sense to us. If people can’t seem to use the privilege safely than rules need to be enforced.

    The island is officially back given that many visitors- of course we knew it given the traffic.

    Daunting stats about the # of planes, visitors etc. Wonder about by ferry during that time period ?

    Thank you- we assumed that was the total number of visitors- forgot about the Ferry.
