CT4ME Posted January 15, 2012 Report Share Posted January 15, 2012 The talk of General Aviation "User Fees" is circulating again... as it has for many years. But maybe, soon, it may become part of the Obama legacy. In a recent response to a petition asking that user fees be taken of the table, Dana Hyde of the Office of Management and Budget dropped a bombshell... "We have concluded that a $100 per flight user fee is an equitable way for those who benefit to bear the cost of this essential service," 100 Bucks per flight! Now, this isn't a current specific proposal... but...expect the $100 'burger to be $200 sometime soon. What burns me is the government will create a bureaucracy that costs more to run than it collects in fees. Why not just add a few cents to the already-in-place fuel tax? I'll be sending a few extra $$$ to the AOPA/EAA PACs... Tim Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
