Aircraft; registration; definition. Requires an aircraft be registered in the Commonwealth if it is based in the Commonwealth for more than 90 days during a calendar year. Current law requires registration if the aircraft is based in the Commonwealth for more than 60 days during a 12-month period. The bill creates an exception to registration for aircraft that are in the Commonwealth solely for major repairs or maintenance. The bill also amends the definition of "aircraft" to clarify that aircraft means a contrivance designed for flight that is occupied by one or more persons. This bill was incorporated into SB 356.
