An Act To Repeal Outdated Agricultural Aviation Laws
Sec. 1. 6 MRSA §151, as amended by PL 1995, c. 504, Pt. B, §10, is repealed and the following enacted in its place:
§ 151. Agricultural aviation
A person may not conduct agricultural operations inconsistent with Federal Air Regulation, Part 137.
A person may operate aircraft from a limited-use landing area for the purposes of conducting agricultural operations if the permission of the owner of the limited-use landing area has been obtained.
This bill removes the requirement for the Commissioner of Transportation to issue a permit for agricultural aviation.
