Reduced Taxes

Passengers and taxpayers currently pay about $12 billion annually to the federal government just for air traffic control services. On top of that, passengers pay an additional $3 billion in passenger facility taxes for airports. A critical part of reforming our system includes eliminating the $12 billion in taxes that passengers pay for air traffic control and instead require airlines to pay for their use of the system. That’s how most other developed countries pay for their air traffic control system.
