WARBIRD RADIO – With all the rumors floating around about what really happened between the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), WARBIRD RADIO.com has collected interviews from those closest to the story. On this special episode of Warbird Radio LIVE you’ll hear from EAA Spokesperson Dick Knapinski, International Council of Air Shows President John Cudahy, the Commemorative Air Force’s President Stephan Brown as well as Congressman Sam Graves (R-MO).
Immediately after our show was recorded Friday afternoon (6/14/13) Laura J. Brown, Deputy Assistant Administrator for Public Affairs with the Federal Aviation Administration responded to our email asking specifically about: 1) fees requested for EAA’s annual fly-in and 2) potential fees for air shows. Ms. Brown replied “We’re pleased that we reached an agreement with EAA that balances both the needs of the air show and the demands of the current fiscal environment.” Regarding the alleged fees for air shows she responded, “the fee information is incorrect.”
Warbird Radio LIVE’s Matt Jolley asked Ms. Brown to clarify her response regarding the alleged air show fees and she further stated, “we [the FAA] enter into reimbursable agreements to cover our incremental costs, we don’t charge blanket ‘fees’.” As the sun sets across the United States this Friday evening there still seems to be more questions than answers regarding how the FAA intends to operate during the sequestration environment. As always, WARBIRD RADIO.COM we’ll keep you up to date as this developing story continues to unfold.
