The Federal Aviation Administration is funded by means of the Aviation Trust Fund, contributed to by users of FAA services, and the General fund, supplied by the federal government. On September 30, 2007 FAA current funding methods will expire and congress must decide how the FAA will continue to be funded. There are several different theories on the fairest, the most practical, and the most stable funding methods that are being considered. The current White House administration has presented a bill to congress proposing their ideas on what should be done. The following research will focus on how that particular proposal and other likely funding options could impact costs for, and enrollment in, flight training programs. Studies and surveys made by leaders at flight training schools will be used as a guide for the author�s research. The data collected will be analyzed and recommendations will be made based on these findings.
