I — •— I ..... • Headaches For The Airlines By PETEU rnsoN Courier News Washington Correspondent Before stewing your juice lo a scorch on the post-war, international freedom of the air Issue, you might care to bring yourself to a boil over some of the intricacies and inconsistencies of conflicting slnte nnd local regulations which now bother domestic airlines. Today, there is top regulalion of interstate air traffic and safely by the If. S. Civil Aeronautics Act of l!)38 .which is nil to. the good as far as it goes. But below this federal control there is gradually being developed a maze of varying state codes to control flying within stale boundaries, and which hamper (lying across slaie boundaries. Twenty-four slides now have their own specialized, local aeronautics commissions or boards. Five slates have given control of their air rights lo the slate railroad or public utility commissions. Six slates hnve vested control of Hie air with tile stale highway commissions. In only 10 of Ihe 48 stales Is there'reinlive freedom of the air subject, to federal regula- lion only. " Take just the fundamental requirement of licensing: 35 slates require lhat bolh aircraft and airmen must have federal licenses. Virginia requires a stale license In addition to a federal license. New Hampshire and Connecticut require only a .slale- license. A pilot Hying from New York City lo New Hampshire, crossing Connecticut, thus requires Ihrec licenses—one federal and two stale—for himself arid tils plane. 1'KOl'OSAL Bl-FOKK HOtlRK Where conflicting state regulations may cease lo be tun- ny Is through multiple state lax- alion. in one recent court decision, nil nil-line operating through the nfr over seven slates was required to pay property taxes on the full assessed value of nil Its planes in one of those stales If the six other states In which the ime oucrated were to lake similar action, this licet would be taxed seven times. There is now before (he House of Representatives a bill known as the Civil Aeronaulics Acl of 1043 Which would limit such over-regulation by reserving to the federal' goveinmenl Hie right to regulate Inlraslatc air commerce The bill would also limit, multiple taxation, and would give to federal atllhori- lics Ihe power lo impose zoning leslriclioiis near airporls where lo cal laws nnd ordinances do uol adequately control Ihe removal of trees, power lines, smokestacks an similar obstacles which are the principal hazards to flying a takeoff and landing limes. STATES PEAK INTKHl'KltlJNCI-: Opposillon to all such legisla (ion comes from the zealous guardians of states rights, the legislalor: ivlio fear Hie encroachments of tin federal government Into local affairs. Muj-be Ihey are justified ii those fears, Bui (lying is (level oping so fast thai it is beyond lo cal control. A pinnc from Pllt.s- burgh to Columbus Hies throng I Ihe nir over West Virginia's, sovereign hills for a mailer of sec onds. Should West Virginia con trol Ihe movement of Ihnt plane? Or is it n proper function of tl federal government which with 01 Jet of rules instead of •!«, could control all such sjlunliora? 4-II Club News The Clear Lake <-H Club hint a wore 27 club members present.
