  • Recently, 88 Mayors from 44 states around the country sent a letter to President Obama asking him to stop the attacks on general aviation. Not only has the President consistenly attacked general aviation in recent months, but now he and some Members of Congress are trying to push a greatly harmful user fee tax on businesses, farms and groups that rely on general aviation. Not only would this saddle businesses and groups with taxes for every take-off and landing, resulting in a huge administrative and tax burden, but this new tax would require the creation of a huge new bureaucracy within the FAA to collect and administer the fees.

    This would affect thousands of businesses and communities around the country that depend on general aviation, jeopardizing countless services and resources that depend on this important form of transportation.
