Pilots work to prevent landing fees for GA at Indiana airport
Clark Regional Airport in Jeffersonville, Ind., is one of the most affordable airports to visit in the southern Indiana, northern Kentucky area, according to pilots, and AOPA is working with them to keep it that way. On Aug. 14, the Clark County Board of Commissioners will evaluate the revenue produced from the landing fee structure that was implemented in June. The fee was established in an attempt to make the airport self-sufficient. Local pilots succeeded in getting an exemption from the fee for aircraft weighing less than 6,000 lb. The amount of revenue generated will determine whether the waiver will continue for light aircraft. Read more on AOPA Online.
