An aviation industry coalition of nearly 30 organizations is opposing the proposed aviation tax increases, “which would lead to significant job loss across all sectors of the industry and the nation.” The coalition–which includes AOPA, GAMA and the airlines’ lobby group, ATA–is opposing the proposed $100 aviation user fee, as well as the proposed doubling of passenger security taxes to $5 per one-way trip in 2012 and their tripling to $7.50 by 2017.
