When the San Diego city attorney, the FAA, and the California Department of Transportation told a San Diego building developer to cut his losses, they meant literally.
You can watch the deconstruction via our Web cam as the two stories are removed off the top of the too-tall building, located less than a mile from Montgomery Field.
AOPA warned Sunroad Enterprises that threatening the safety of general aviation pilots would not be tolerated. The association and the local pilots organization, Community Airfields Association of San Diego (CAASD), which includes AOPA Airport Support Network volunteer Rick Beach, are parties to a lawsuit against Sunroad.
On June 22, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders ordered the contractor to remove the floors because the building was a hazard to air navigation.
Future projects in this area will be scrutinized by AOPA to make sure that safety isn't compromised.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
