Office of the Revisor of Statutes

It is hereby declared that the purpose of sections 360.011 to 360.076 is to further the public
interest and aeronautical progress by providing for the protection and promotion of safety in
aeronautics; by cooperating in effecting a uniformity of the laws relating to the development
and regulation of aeronautics in the several states; by revising existing statutes relative to the
development and regulation of aeronautics so as to grant to a state agency such powers and
impose upon it such duties that the state may properly perform its functions relative to aeronautics
and effectively exercise its jurisdiction over persons and property within such jurisdiction, may
assist in the promotion of a statewide system of airports, may cooperate with and assist the
political subdivisions of this state and others engaged in aeronautics, and may encourage and
develop aeronautics; by establishing uniform rules, consistent with federal regulations and those
of other states, in order that those engaged in aeronautics of every character may so engage with
the least possible restriction, consistent with the safety and the rights of others; and by providing
for cooperation with the federal authorities in the development of a national system of civil
aviation and for coordination of the aeronautical activities of those authorities and the authorities
of this state by assisting in accomplishing the purposes of federal legislation and eliminating
costly and unnecessary duplication of functions properly in the province of federal agencies.
