Common Sense

It was good to hear the White House dropped the plan to impose user fees on general aviation and stay with the current tax on tickets and fuel . This will help prevent many more airports from closing. The 5,300 general aviation airports in the U.S. connect with others in the system in a way that the large 22 airports simply cannot by themselves and provides more capacity so that cargo and passengers don’t further clog the class B system. New levies on the already beleaguered aviation industry would have also  reduced available jobs. Taxes aren’t the answer to every problem. Thanks go out to the AOPA, EAA, GAMA and others for their persistence and hard work.
