Geese a serious safety concern at Nelson airport

The goose problem at the Nelson Airport has become a serious matter of public safety.

Case Grypma – the past President of the local Pilots Association – says Nelson’s non-migratory geese can number up to 200 at times and they are attracted to the grassy area next to the road.

When a plane comes by they all take-off for the lake – flying across the runway.

Grypma says a twin engine Beechcraft is one of a number of aircraft hit recently.

The Nelson Pilots Association is looking at investing in a newer system of loud bangs to scare off the geese – it would be triggered by a radio frequency from the nearby plane.
