"We get a bill once a year, and my bill for my RV is $68 per year for all Air Traffic Control services," Brown said.

EAA absolutely supports the safe integration of UAS into the airspace, but general aviation will not foot the bill for these commercial interests from a safety, access, or cost standpoint.” Source: Sean Elliott, EAA vice president of advocacy and safety, discussing the EAA reraction to a recent public meeting on an Advisory and Rulemaking Committee (ARC) final report that provides re
