OSHKOSH - The Experimental Aircraft Association says it will pay nearly $450,000 to the FAA to save AirVenture, although the group is not happy about it.
The money would pay for the expenses for bringing in dozens of air traffic controllers for this year's fly-in, billed as the world's largest aviation celebration.
In the past, the feds would cover those costs. But the FAA changed its policy this year as part of federal budget cuts.
EAA Chairman Jack Pelton says not signing the deal would have meant cancelling this year's AirVenture. He adds a letter was sent along with the contract stating it was signed under protest.
In a statement Pelton said, "We also look forward to FAA's leadership coming to Oshkosh this year to personally explain their policy to the nation's aviators."
The FAA released the following statement, "We're pleased that we reached an agreement with EAA that balances both the needs of the air show and the demands of the current fiscal environment."
