If you Americans allow ATC to be "privatised" like European ATC has become, then watch GA costs soar. You might think it's expensive now but you ain't seen nothing yet. When you see small,basic microlights with transponders and expensive 8.33 Khz radios,that cost more than the aircraft itself, you know something is wrong. Flight training is far too expensive in Europe, for what it is and student starts for GA aircraft have essentially fallen flat and are mostly young people who want to become airline pilots.
