Contact Congress Issue Spotlight: Help NBAA Stop User Fees
Updated March 6, 2014
In the proposed federal budget for fiscal year 2015, the Obama Administration has proposed creating a new and onerous $100 per flight user fee that would not only impose significant new economic and administrative burdens on general aviation operators who currently pay through an efficient per-gallon fuel charge at the pump, but it will also necessitate the creation of a costly new federal collection bureaucracy. NBAA urges the business aviation community to voice their strong opposition to aviation user fees.
