Head of air traffic control Erick Bodden said much preparation had to be done to accommodate US troops who landed in Cayman.. en route to Haiti.
The helicopters seen here made their stop in Cayman to prepare ahead of delivering aid to Haiti amidst the crisis following hurricane Matthew.
Air Traffic Control Manager Erick Bodden said when taking into account the size of the choppers those who manage aircrafts on the ground and in the air have to do their part to accommodate the military aircrafts.
“I mentioned some of the requirements that we’re going to have to meet internationally those are distances from the runway there are height restrictions that we have to make sure they don’t penetrate so it was a challenge,” Mr. Bodden said.
Mister Bodden said he does not expect any more visits from foreign military aircrafts en route to Haiti.
