    AOPA needs your help now more than ever. Privatization would:

    Threaten the safest, busiest, and most complex airspace in the world.
    Create a “too big to fail” monopoly that will need taxpayer bailouts.
    Cost tens of billions of dollars.
    Disproportionately hurt rural America and general aviation.
    Increase costs for both travelers and taxpayers.
    Not affect airline delays—80 percent are caused by airlines and weather.
    Hurt general aviation—similar reforms in other countries have led to a decline in GA.
    Bring on unintended consequences and risks; there is no consensus for HR 2997.
    As Capt. Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger asked: “Why would we hand over the keys to the kingdom to the airlines?”
