Aero-News: Quote of the Day (03.06.07)

"[R]ecent news excerpts.... demonstrate that airline lobbying has succeeded in getting the FAA to unveil a funding plan that gives the giant airlines a major tax break while imposing massive tax hikes and onerous new user fees on the businesses that rely on general aviation.

Source: NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen, in a letter to members imploring them to write to their elected officials about how they feel about the FAA's funding proposal.
