"This proposal would create a $100 per flight fee, payable to the FAA, by aviation operators who fly in con­trolled airspace. Military aircraft, public air­craft, recreational piston aircraft, air ambu­lances, aircraft operating outside of controlled airspace, and Canada-to-Canada flights would be exempted"

This is crazy, if this was to pass it will kill GA.

Scenario: In my case I usually take off from a Controlled Airport, pass thru a Class C and then land at Controlled Field. is that $300.00 ?? Even $100.00 it will be suiside for GA.

I hope common sense prevails but the Politicians these days are nothing but rational. :oops:
