Happy new year! Last week, we asked AVweb readers to cast their eye back over 2007 and tell us which single story had the greatest impact on aviation over the past 12 months.
A few of you pointed out stories that we'd completely overlooked or (just barely) decided not to include on our short list things like the privatization of FSS, the Age 60 Rule being bumped up to the "Age 65 Rule," the growth of the very light jet market, and the commercial rollout of the Airbus A380. (Be sure to check out Monday's AVmail for a sampling of the great e-mails we received.)
But, when all was said and done, most of our respondents thought the ongoing battle over user fees was the top story of the year. (Although the disappearance of Steve Fossett was a close second.)
For the complete breakdown of answers,
