Urgent Call to Action!

AOPA has just issued a very urgent call for all members to immediately contact their Senators to ask for support of the Nelson/Sununu amendment, which strikes all user fees from the Senate FAA funding bill. The amendment may be offered during the Commerce Committee’s consideration of the Aviation Investment and Modernization Act of 2007 “S.1300,” and would eliminate the $25 per flight "Air Traffic Modernization Surcharge" from the bill.

This is huge. When AOPA asks, we MUST take action. This is an emergency request, this is scheduled to come up tomorrow, so DO THIS RIGHT NOW!!!

Go HERE and find your Senator, and then fax them the following letter (just copy/paste what is below, add your name and address and ratings to it, and please sign it):

URGENT FAX
Please forward to:

United States Senator [add your Senator's name here]


From:

your name

your address

your city, state and zip

your phone number


Dear Senator [name here]:

I am a [add your ratings here] pilot and am faxing to ask you to support the Nelson/Sununu amendment that strikes all user fees from the Senate FAA funding bill. This bill is scheduled for a vote by the Committee tomorrow, Wednesday, May 16 at 2:30 p.m. (EDT).


This amendment, if offered during the Commerce Committee’s consideration of the Aviation Investment and Modernization Act of 2007 “S.1300,” would eliminate the $25 per flight "Air Traffic Modernization Surcharge" from the bill.


I strongly urge you to considering opposing the Next Generation Air Transportation System Financing Reform Act of 2007. It is bad for America, and will hurt millions of people who depend on general aviation for their incomes.


Thank you for your time spent reading this fax, and thank you for helping us defeat user fees.


Best regards;
