Submission + - Proposed 2013 Obama budget attacks General Aviation with a $100 per flight tax. (aopa.org)

chaim79 writes: The Proposed Obama 2013 budget is proposing a $100 per-flight tax on turbine aircraft, in what amounts to a direct attack on general aviation. Such a tax will only hurt general aviation. For what money it may bring in, it will also create more bureaucracy to soak the money up, leaving little tax income to show for it. This will only hurt one of the few sectors where innovation still happens in the US.
