Robert Poole, Director of Transportation Studies at nonprofit think-tank Reason Foundation, has long been an advocate of aviation user fees, as well as a supporter of commercializing the U.S. air traffic control organization. In an interview with AVweb Editor-in-Chief Chad Trautvetter, Poole explains why he sees user fees and a privatized ATC system as good things for airspace users, despite what the aviation alphabet groups and some congressional members have been saying lately about user fees.
