Jet's owner wants private helipad, rather than land at airport 2 miles away

59 posts in this topic

If I had Woody's money, I'd be able to access every mode of transportation known to man just a short zipline ride away from my bed.

Exactly the kind of thought that creates failure, just like his jets.

I lived in the river dorms which were on George St and most of my classes were by George St.  The J&J building is right there but has its own huge campus I don't see how landing a helicopter inside their own campus helipad would interfere with anything outside

Yup. I was in River Dorm 93-94

Who cares? Its not like they are going to be landing there 3-4 times a day. I admit it may be a little excessive but really is this such a big deal?

The title says "2 miles," the article says "2 minutes," which one is it?

I'd like this cleared up before forming an opinion.

Good for him. Money has it's privileges. That's why people pursue it and create value to society in the process.

Exactly, it is in a privileged area otherwise it wouldn't be an issue.

My preference would be that you make like 10 posts on it. That would show that you don't care at all thanks.

Really?  I went to Rutgers and lived on George St I don't recall that happening.  They have a facility located on George Street but it's huge and could accommodate a heliport

Probably '86-'87 and the class was directly across the George Street from the J&J compound.  It wasn't one of the main buildings, further up the street.  To be fair, I did my 4 years with most classes on College Ave campus, lived in Hardenbergh for a year and that was the only building where it happened. I think it was a Friday morning class and until I took it, I did not even know that they had a helipad.  

It wasn't a huge disruption, well less than 5 minutes, but guys that had that convenience in the late '80s are not likely to want to lose it now when we should be in our flying cars.

It is funny that I am defending myself.  Like I would make this up.  When I make sh*t up I went to a better school. :)

Fly in for what games?

For Jet games.  One of my partners is a pilot.  He is from Sparta and we would fly into all kinds of airfields in NJ.  My favorite was a landing at Newark.  The guy on the tow truck was laughing his rear end off.  He said he had never seen such a small plane landing there before.

Yes, but if two helicopters leave their respective helipads at the same time, and one is traveling at 80 miles per hour with a 10 mph back wind, the other is traveling at 60 miles per hour against a 10 mph, when they each reach the halfway point... they'll still be more entertaining to watch than the Jets.

It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

The landing fee at Newark is prohibitive. He's  loaded apparently. Lots of pilots here in Sparta. The beacon for Newark approach is right here (about 45 miles from EWR) and pilots say they like the look of the town from above. Seriously.

Whatz the big deal. Pour a concrete pad. A helicopter every few days is no big deal

The intent of the post isn't to discuss helipads.  It's to make Woody Johnson look like a disconnected elitist.  Which is supposed to lead to an argument about rich people.  Which will lead to a debate about PSL's.

This is one bad offseason.

He won't even have to leave at the end of the first quarter to beat the halftime traffic

Can't have our own stadium in NY, but totes needs that private helipad.

Maybe they should just pile up minorities and land his helicopter on them...

Didn't the article say that they wanted it to get people in and out of their home facility and to air lift injured players out?  

HTF did that become an indictment againt Woody?  Why to Jets fans take such pride in bashing their teams owner?  It childish
