The crash raised concerns among parents whose ground-bound children attend a nearby private school. George King Jr., headmaster of Wooster School, immediately sent out an e-mail to parents to inform them of the crash and let them know no children were harmed, the News-Times reported. The airport, which is in an area of rapid development, has drawn complaints about noise for years, as dozens of new houses have been built close to flight paths. John Katz, a trustee for the school, told the News-Times the airport has to be a better neighbor. "It places people in danger," he said. "It's busy and it's dangerous." King, however, took a less alarmist perspective. "We have to keep this in context," he told the News-Times. "This was an emergency situation. The pilot did what he had to do. We're grateful the pilot survived the crash."
