People who’ve never had to make an honest living. Good luck. They’re idiots. Of course everyone in earshot and eyesight is always named in every lawsuit. Nothing new there. Their defense is: “The FAA certifies mechanics and oversees their work, and the airport is not involved. In fact the FAA would be quite upset if we involved ourselves. Mechanics are the FAA’s jurisdiction. Perhaps the plaintiff should consider naming FAA in their lawsuit instead of us, Your Honor?” And, they’re removed. Airport Boards are so often such an amateur hour of wannabe politicians (who can’t hack even basic liability issues, let alone running businesses), this is what you get when the bottom of the political talent barrel holds jobs on them. Our airport supposedly has a $200 annual fee for anyone doing business of any kind on the airport. Never seen anyone except businesses with an address on the field, pay it. The vast majority of airport users don’t even know it exists. I’d love to see them try to enforce it on a transient CFI who lands there during training for lunch. Utterly stupid. Just some harebrained fee nobody even knows or cares about.
