More like "What In The Hell?!" RIDICULOUS! Any FBO's that are against this or those who are taking their time to publish their fees, are just here for the $$$! (my $.02)

Anecdotally, El Paso Aero charged me $812.29 for a flat nose wheel tire on a Mooney. Looking at the receipt we figure it was $10 to air it up listed as "shop supplies". This was a pretty clear gouge

Please check into Signature at KBWI. Nearly $1,000 in fees or waive a portion by buying $9.06 / gallon JetA, yet another major gouge Thank you

For those who really absolutely have to go to BWI yeah - its the cost of doing buinsess. Martin State has Jet A @ 4.74/gal. Other options are avaiable too.

Anyone have an idea on just what it costs to run an FBO these days? The GAO study is going to show that for the small guys, they are really getting a deal and not a ripoff. For the ones complaining the most (small piston engine aircraft drivers), the only reason they can still even get full-service AvGas today at what they think are high prices is because the airport makes them. Otherwise, FBOs would drop it in a heartbeat and force them to go pump their own gas. My take is the whole kerfuffle is a certain organization's membership campaign to show that they are fighting for the little guys. Just sayin'
