Aero-News Quote of the Day
"To subject Americans to a tax levied by the European Union while they fly in U.S. airspace is a dramatic overreach and assault on our sovereignty, especially when European countries can use that money for anything they'd like. The bottom line is that European governments have no business imposing a tax on our air travel, and I'm glad that our colleagues today moved our plan closer to the finish line."
