Despite AOPA's objection, the governor of South Dakota has signed Senate Bill 32. This bill gives the authority for the state to replace current paper pilot registration certificates with a South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT)-issued certificate that includes photo identification. In addition, the South Dakota Aeronautics Commission may develop rules for the display of the certificate while on an airport.
A meeting with SDDOT staff and aeronautics commissioners will be held March 5, 2002, at 9 a.m. at the Ramada Inn in Aberdeen to discuss concerns and comments regarding this issue. AOPA will be on hand to provide input; however, we also encourage South Dakota members to offer their insights to this proposal. The purpose of this meeting will be to gather information on the pilot identification requirements and for the implementation of the second part of the legislation requiring photo identification badges for airport employees, employees of a fixed-based operator and charter service at all airports in the state, not just those airports served by airlines as required by FAR Part 107.
