The instructors have received a report from the BOD that the dues increase for them will remain. They have said that the CFIGs receiving any of the instruction fee in dues credits is “inherently unfair”.
Apparently, dues credits for A&P mechanics would also be unfair.
I discussed the issue with Gary Palumbo.
We have decided to stand by our fellow instructors and towpilots by withdrawing our services as Certified Mechanics.
Unfortunately this is the first time in club history that instructors have refused to fly and A&Ps have refused to work.
