Aero-News Featured Aero-Casts For Thursday 02.02.06

EAA and NATA On The Coming War Over User Fees

The head of the Air Transport Association, as expected, has repeated the call for aviation user fees to bolster FAA's budget, a move that would offload millions of dollars of fees paid by the airlines onto general aviation users.

ATA President James May made his comments on Friday at the National Aeronautic Association in Washington. In his speech, May repeated the airlines' stand that business aviation and the emerging very light jet market are not paying their fair share of fees to operate the air traffic management system. Revenues generated by the airline ticket tax have dropped by about 20-percent because of market-driven low fares. As a result... revenue pouring into the trust fund continues to decline.

May's comments come on the heels of a speech by Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta to the Aero-Club in Washington, where he strongly hinted that user fees may soon become a fact of life. He said the nation's airspace must have a sound, reliable revenue stream -- something he said it doesn't have today. He said the Airport Trust fund can't continue to rely on passenger ticket taxes... but stopped short of saying what comes next. Still... general aviation advocates say there's little doubt the FAA will push for user fees -- probably within the coming year.

Doug MacNair is vice president for government affairs at the Experimental Aircraft Association. We also hear from NATA President Jim Coyne, in Part One of a Two-Part Interview.

This feature is in addition to our daily news briefing -- available in either a quick "Touch And Go" format or an expanded Aero-Briefing.

ANN Daily Touch-And-Go: 02.02.06 (ANN's Short-Form Daily News Program)

ANN Daily Aero-Briefing: 02.02.06 (ANN's Long-Form Daily News Program)

ANN Special Feature: The Coming War Over User Fees 02.02.06 (ANN's Feature News Program, with EAA's Doug MacNair and NATA's Jim Coyne on the Coming War Over User Fees.)

Our DAILY programs consist of (at least) three separate products... the first is a short synopsis of the previous 24 hours of Aero-News, in brief, spanning only a few minutes (max) and in a size/format that will allow it to be mailed as part of a Daily Aero-Cast subscription; a more comprehensive DAILY news product that will cover the previous 24 hours of news in a somewhat more detailed fashion, and a feature Aero-Cast that will center on one of the more important subject or topics of the day in considerable depth and detail. This is how these products break down...

  • ANN's Daily 'Touch & Go' Aero-Cast: A quick look at the most recent news of the day... short, succinct and to the point. The usual 'Touch & Go' takes but a few minutes and is a summary, only, of the day's events. It only takes a few minutes of your time and will be available by subscription, shortly.
  • ANN's Daily Briefing Aero-Cast: The Daily ANN Report (ANNRep for short), is a more comprehensive look at the day's news. We'll give you the whole buzz... the news and features that occupy the forefront of aviation news as well as solid background on the subjects that aviators and other aviation professionals need to stay informed on.
  • ANN's Daily 'ASR' Feature Aero-Cast: ANN will be offering a Daily 'Aero-News Special Report.' This involves a more in-depth view of a story or two that dominated (or will be dominating) the day's news. Far more detailed than any single story in our standard ANN Daily Reports, this is a solid chance to get a close look at the stories and topics that matter. ASR features may include exclusive interviews with Aviation's Newsmakers, ANN's Special Investigative reports and solid analysis of the stories that will have undeniable impact on the world of aviation and aerospace. We're tremendously excited about this particular product in that it truly adds nuance and background to important breaking news stories and personalities. While our current news format allows for extensive reporting and information dissemination, ANN's ASRs should set the bar even higher. ANN has become a pivotal force in the world of aviation in the six years that have passed since we undertook the immense task of becoming the aviation world's DAILY news and information service... but with the all-new news services we're offering as part of our Aero-Cast line-up, we expect to become even more indispensable to the industry we serve.

Check them out, let us know what you think and be sure to keep those news-tips and program suggestions coming... ANN is ALL about what YOU want to know about in the world of aviation and aerospace.
