    While I am a new member and am fortunate that the $400 will not impact me one way or another, I whole heartedly agree with Aaron’s spot-on analysis. We may want to review how we budget our costs. Predictable operating expenses such as engine rebuilds should come from operating revenue tows/launches. Fixed costs should come from dues. Special assessments should be reserved for an emergency or a special capital project. While I realize that not having enough money for an engine rebuild is an emergency, it should not be. Finally, as Aaron points out a uniform assessment means that those who fly a few flights subsidize those that fly many. My two cents.
