FAA User Fees and Amateur Pilots

Major airlines are pushing for a new funding system for the FAA that would shift a huge financial burden onto small aviation outfits. The new system could make it more expensive for average citizens to fly while providing tax breaks to the airline industry. Its a move reminiscent of big box stores pushing out local businesses and will ultimately stunt local economies that benefit from aviation.

Some further reading in this letter to the editor at the Washington Post as well as coverage of the funding debate by the AOPA.
