Birmingham Departure Tax
A news item posted on the AOPA web site on 18th March indicates that Birmingham Airport is planning on introducing a departure tax.

The tax, if adopted, will have a significant impact on GA operations at the airport. It is reported that aircraft under 10 tonnes MTOW will be charged 114 for departures during peak periods, which the AOPA article suggests is 14 hours a day.

We understand that a meeting was held at the airport in April. It is reported that a final decision on this tax was deferred for 3 months, on the basis that such a measure contravenes the terms of the airport license which does not allow such discrimination.
