TOLFA Segment 8, Question 3

What would happen to the freedom of flying? With government controlling air use with its FAA, there is no "freedom of flying" and has not been since the 1920s.

With potentially thousands of contracts to negotiate every time one flew one's Ultralite over some land- and air-owner's roof, the pleasure of flying free as a bird would disappear. Much better that the atmosphere remain public.
The market would develop brokers and agents who would consolidate air-use fees for owners and flyers, for a low competitive charge.
