SB 701 - This act modifies the law regarding the issuance of pilot licenses. Under the current law, it is unlawful for anyone to fly a plane without a pilot's license issued by the Department of Commerce. This statute has not been amended since 1939. The Department of Commerce is no longer the agency responsible for issuing such licenses. Pilot licenses are referred to as airmen certificates under federal law, and the Federal Aviation Administration is the agency responsible for their issuance. This act modifies the law to reflect the current status of the law.
