That's where I see the problem. One may argue that $10.00 isn't much, but it I consider excessive for what you get and I it a deterrent if you are just stopping for a look and a slash. It wouldn't be hard to work up a hefty monthly bill when you hop around 4 or 5 local airfields for a visit and a chat on a Saturday and/or Sunday.I just received an invoice for $10 from Avdata for a landing fee at Chinchilla, Qld.
I had landed there for a quick pee beside the runway then away again in minutes.
We often joke about the $100 hamburger, but this is a $10 pee fee......
Tara is another good example..... a small airport miles out of town, nothing to see, no hangars, nothing to do except relieve yourself on the grass/dirt and tenner for the privilege. Won't make that mistake again. Won't be stopping at any of them unless I actually have business there and even then will be making every effort to avoid business there.
