FAA and Regs

Henry Hough writes: "No doubt this proposal makes sense in some arcane budget discussion among ignoramuses divorced from aviation. But saying aircraft can't be built in an airport hangar simply to preclude inappropriate use of federally funded airports makes about as much sense as saying birth can't occur at home because the mortgage may be a tax deduction. The heart and soul of an aircraft should begin at an airport. The gestation period and infancy of an aircraft needs and deserves to be nurtured in its natural home among members of its kind. If it takes a village to raise a child, shouldn't it make sense that the humans needed to create an aircraft gather at an airport?"
