Chapter: 20 - Airplane Traffic

Section: 50 - Accidents

Every person involved in or witnessing an aircraft accident on the airport shall report promptly the details of such accident to the airport manager, to the FAA, and to the local law enforcement personnel as required by law. In addition, the pilot or aircraft owner shall report fully to the California Division of Aeronautics the details on any accident in which there is death or injury, or in which damage to the property of others exceeds four hundred dollars. The owner and/or pilot of an aircraft which is damaged in an accident, or wrecked, shall be responsible for the prompt removal of the aircraft as directed by the airport manager. Where the pilot or owner is unable to arrange for removal of such disabled or wrecked aircraft, the airport manager shall have the authority to move, or arrange the removal of, the aircraft when released (if applicable) by the FAA of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). No liability shall be incurred by the airport manager or others for damage aggravated by, or resulting from, such removal.
