Reaction to AOPA's Three Part 13 Complaints

Posted by Joseph Kildea on Sep 15, 2017 4:07 pm

Today, AOPA posted a story pulling together many of the reactions in the press and from pilots to the three Part 13 complaints we recently filed over egregious pricing practices that affect access. I hope you have a moment to read the story and share your thoughts and experiences.

And all three are $ignature Flight $upport facilities -- not at all surprising for anyone who flies a lot of different places.

Signature Mobile (KMOB) has a monopoly on the field. 
They charge me $220 Handling fee, $161.20/ nite for hangar, $37.44/nite ramp, Plus an infastructure fee of $35. All that and $6.53 for JetA without additive.
They have also monopolized the other (downtown) airport in Mobile for the same fees / prices.
I don't blame them for the predatory pricing as much as I do the Airport Authority (City of Mobile) for allowing it. 
What is their reasoning for allowing this?
I am forced to take my business elsewhere.
