(AP Photo via FDNY)New York – A New York congresswoman is calling on the Federal Aviation Administration to ban “non-essential” helicopter flights over Manhattan following a crash in the city.

    Rep. Carolyn Maloney vowed Monday to hold the agency “accountable” for what happened.

    The Manhattan Democrat said she would also consider pursuing legislation if necessary.

    Maloney says she doesn’t believe that executive travel or tourist trips would qualify as essential travel.

    The proposed ban would only apply to helicopters and not other small aircraft.

    1. What is it with liberals and bans? Accidents happen thats the way of the world. helicopter accidents are extremely rare. The answer is not to prohibit everything under the sun. Lots of people die in car accidents to.
