It could cost more for some airplanes to take to the skies.
The president's budget plan includes a $100 per flight fee. It would apply to general aviation aircraft like cargo and charter flights. The user fee would generate $11 billion over 10 years.
But many aviation groups say the fee would cripple the industry.
"We could have as many as 10 to 20 take off and landing per aircraft a day at a $100 a piece that could be as much as $2,000 per unit.
If our business would sustain and stay the same as it did last year, it could cost my business a half million dollars a year," Scott Heinen, owner of Heinen Brothers Agra Service said.
Right now, the industry uses a pay-at-the-pump system. Congress has already rejected the user fee proposal twice and many members are speaking out against it this time around.
