Default Proposed costs may endanger small air services

Anyone know anything about this? The video says new taxes and fees have been proposed for general aviation and it could shut down service to small airports.... The usual gloom and doom lobby stuff.

There's nothing specific on the website except to "send money." Do you know what "new legislation" he's talking about?

Specifically, it's on page 131 of the proposed budget. Check out the
AOPA website, the EAA website and/or Pilots of America website for
details.

Thanks. Do you know how much the fees will be? Must be pretty hefty to cause some flights to be cancelled.

Not really. If the operation was right at the edge of making money in
the first place.
