EAA-FAA come to agreement on ATC fees

Posted: Updated:
 OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- The Experimental Aircraft Association and the Federal Aviation Administration have ended a dispute over air traffic control fees.
  
The EAA says a nine-year agreement with the FAA will provide air traffic control services on a consistent basis through 2022 for AirVenture, the annual fly-in convention in Oshkosh.
  
Last year, the FAA told EAA officials that the cost for 87 air traffic controllers and supervisors to come to Oshkosh for AirVenture would be nearly $448,000.

The EAA signed a one-year agreement under protest and asked a federal appeals court to review the payments.
  
EAA board Chairman Jack Pelton says the organization's goal was to bring stability to AirVenture.
