A Call to Action

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently began pushing local airshows and major aviation events to provide exhorbitant new funding for air traffic control staffing that has been provided on request, without fees, in some cases for the past 50 years.

The link above provides a mechanism for sending a letter to Congress demanding FAA reconsider or at the very least explain why they are threatening aviation safety by extorting fees for services which are already directly funded by aviation fuel and other excise taxes.

If the freedom to fly (and surely enough other freedoms later) means anything to you, please consider taking a minute or two to visit the linked site and send a letter to your Congressman.

Blue Skies!
