Business aviation leaders are relatively quiet when asked about the presidential election, saying both candidates face stark budget choices regardless of who gets into office. From an industry standpoint, their worries are less about who wins and more about the tough decisions that will need to be made once the election is over, according to an Aviation Week story. The story notes that while President Barack Obama has an uneven track record with the industry during his first four years, Mitt Romney has virtually none – both leaving questions about the direction they would take entering 2013. No matter what, the story says, the fight against user fees will probably continue.
