[RECREATIONAL AIRCRAFT; CLASSIC LICENSES.] An aircraft that has a base price for tax purposes under section 360.531 of $10,000 or less, and that is owned and operated solely for recreational purposes, may be listed for taxation and registration by executing a sworn affidavit stating (1) the name and address of the owner, (2) the name and address of the person from whom purchased, (3) the aircraft's make, year, model number, federal aircraft registration number, and manufacturer's identification number, and (4) that the aircraft is owned and operated solely as a recreational aircraft and not for commercial operational purposes. The affidavit must be filed with the commissioner along with an annual $25 fee. On being satisfied that the affidavit is true and correct, the commissioner shall issue to the applicant a decal. Should the aircraft be operated other than as a recreational aircraft, the owner shall list the aircraft for taxation and registration and pay the appropriate registration fee under sections 360.511 to 360.67. If the aircraft is sold, the new owner shall list the aircraft for taxation and registration under this subdivision, including the payment of the annual $25 fee, or under sections 360.511 to 360.67, whichever is applicable. Sec. 3. [EFFECTIVE DATE.] Section 1 is effective the day following final enactment. Presented to the governor May 23, 1989 Signed by the governor May 26, 1989, 4:50 p.m.
