Hey man, nice report. I'm glad you got to see your girlfriend and experience the short hop from Houston to Victoria. That would be interesting, indeed.

First Freedom Question

How much do countries charge for use of their airspace?

Is the amount charged figured on a per flight basis since the time spent in an overflown country's airspace can differ from day to day and from flight to flight?

Where does this money go?

Thanks,
