I'm trying to think of a single circumstance where that would bother me. I was gonna say Oshkosh, but the FAA is still shaking down EAA every July, so that won't change, funding or not. Flight following? Won't miss it, with ADS-B on board. Control towers? Most of the ones I visit seem to be contract towers. Not sure how they would be impacted by privatization, but most of them are grossly underutilized and could go away. Airport funding? We would all be better off without them, so long as it means getting all the other D.C. bureaucrats out of our business, too. Get EPA, DNR, and all the rest of them out, too, and maybe we can extend our runway and build some hangars here. Mmmmm....sorry. I can't think of one reason why I should care if the FAA is funded.
