If you need to buy a jet, the guys at waterside aircraft sales are the best, ask for mike

Not only is there an issue about these aircraft operators paying their fair share-- think of the pollution and waste by flying a jet for one person! This is duplicated by all corporate jets flying around with under six people aboard. It compares to those who carpool vs those millions who are the only driver in a daily commute to work.
Whether you carry 150 or 2 people, the jet takes up the same amount of time and effort for ATC and the FAA employees to monitor the skies! A different method of paying for air traffic control, weather, and monitoring must be equivalent to the use of the skies, not just by number of people flying per plane!

well i wonder who gave this man, a great literary mind of our time, the idea for the story! this is one of ten i read everyweek about how big whigs are getting away with everything and the airlines are getting hosed. let me tell you that this ist about anyone payin anymore, its about the airlines paying nothing, thats right, nothing and shifting it over on the smaller guy. period. isnt it amazing to think that the only bill the airlined dont like is the only one that doesnt knock off their 3.4c a gallon tax contribution to the system? while corporate jets pay more like 21.8c a gallon? whos paying their fair share? when the airlines say they pay for 90 percent of the cost and use 74 percent what they mean is our passengers pay that much, not us. While id like to applaud this pulitzer prize winning author, i simply cant because this is not an original story, nor is it accurate, just a one sided piece of propaganda much like hitler raving about how the jews have wrecked germany, this is a non story by a non author who needs to think for himself, and learn to gathe facts, because all it takes is a little research into the matter to see whats blatantly obvious. shamefull smut. i have an idea, next time write about how the airlines take all the sick children to the hospital for free, or run time sensitive transplant organs around for free, that will make for a real nice fact filled story. or you could write about how GA is causing all the delays, like the category 3 General Aviation that hit New Orleans and devastated the city.
