Experimental Aircraft Association files petition in federal court

OSHKOSH - The Experimental Aircraft Association is looking for some relief from a half a million dollar bill from the government.

Experimental Aircraft Association announced Wednesday it is petitioning a federal appeals court to stop the payment to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The money is to pay for dozens of air traffic controllers during this year's AirVenture.

Federal Aviation Administration previously covered the costs, but the agency changed its policy this year due to federal budget cuts.

Federal Aviation Administration has yet to respond to the Experimental Aircraft Association's petition.

This year's fly-in begins on July 29.
