Could Palin Help With The GA User Fee Fight?

I'm sure you all know about the fight with user fees for GA (if you don't, a google search will do you wonders), so do you think Sarah Palin could help with that if McCain is elected President?

I don't have much knowledge when it comes to politics, but with her being the Governor of Alaska, where bush flying is a very large portion of transportation, do you think she could help out the campaign against user fees since she [hopefully] knows the importance of the industry and what damage user fees could do to it? I've also heard that she is a pilot herself.

If you have any insight please post!!

Thanks,
Kreg

Remember, Palin is only the VP. McCain would still make the calls, and he's I'd say he's more likely to go for user fees.

There is no indication that she is a pilot although acc. to Refs 25 & 94 of this link, she owns a float plane. Her husband apparently has a Single Engine Land License according to Ref. 19 of the latter link, so I'm guessing that even he doesen't pilot her plane.

I don't think anybody knows. As Governor she has very publicly been against user fees, and her husband is an AOPA member. However, John McCain hasn't been known as a good friend to general aviation. Nobody on this website has any clue as to whether he is going to be willing to listen to her on this issue or not.


It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
