  1. Citing a need to create equity for payment of air traffic control (ATC) services, the White House Monday unveiled a plan to charge a $100 ATC fee for most operations in controlled airspace. The proposal, part of President Obama’s American Jobs Act plan, came a week after the administration outlined legislation to increase depreciation schedules for corporate aircraft from five to seven years. The president began to indicate his desire to close tax “loopholes” for the wealthy and corporate jet operators earlier this spring.

    The fee would apply to all operators flying in controlled airspace, with the exception of military aircraft, public aircraft, recreational piston aircraft, air ambulances, along with aircraft operating outside controlled airspace and Canada-to-Canada flights transiting U.S. airspace.

  3. David Dunlap’s discussion about noise cancelation was fascinating. The idea of sampling the noise background and then self updating the noise cancelation settings is a stroke of genius. Show notes and out takes were a riot as always. Thanks, geeks!

  4. Thanks for the feedback, Jamie. After the episode, I met David Dunlap at the Sennheiser booth at the AOPA Aviation Summit in Hartford. He’s a great guy and if you have even the slightest question or issue he’s all over it. Clearly a guy that understands customer satisfaction. It’s really refreshing!
