We used to pay a levy on Avgas - can't recall the actual figure.

We were informed at the time that it was used to fund Flight Service.

The removal of same fuel levy (tax) was a BIG point in spruiking the removal of F.S.

I feel Mr Albanese cannot have it both ways - the ASA en route charges (read 'indirect' taxes) already return a healthy profit to the Govt......

So why then does he feel the need to re-introduce that tax which was a pivotal point in the removal of services..??

One can only 'HOPE' that he is about to re-introduce some (any) services to GA..??
