AAAA 'Sets Record Straight' On FAA's User Fee Issues 'Facts'
April 26 , 2007 — The Alliance for Aviation Across America (AAAA), which includes EAA as a member, has issued a strong rebuttal to the FAA?s so-called ?fact sheet? document that seeks to thwart general aviation?s objections to the Bush Administration?s user fee and tax increase proposal. In ?Setting the Record Straight on FAA?s Recent Claims,? the Alliance called FAA?s information ?just the latest round of rhetoric that has been put out by the FAA and the commercial airlines since the introduction of their proposal, which would purposefully transfer billions of dollars of the airlines? tax burden onto businesses and communities that rely on small planes.?
EAA and other general aviation organizations joined several non-aviation groups to form the AAAA, which presents united, broad-based opposition to the administration?s FAA reauthorization proposal currently being debated in Congress.
