AOPA: Most Production Single-Engine Aircraft Probably
Jersey Director of Aeronautics Thomas P Thatcher has finally
supplied a list of "frequently asked questions" to explain the
specifics of the state's "two-lock" rule that goes into effect
Friday. That rule requires New Jersey airport operators to ensure
that any aircraft remaining on the ground longer than 24 hours be
secured with two locks to prevent operation of the aircraft.
In an FAQ, Thatcher says that an aircraft with a door lock and a
magneto key, even if it were the same key, would comply with the
order. That would cover most production singles manufactured in the
last 40 years. A locked aircraft in a locked hangar also meets the
intent of the rule.
AOPA tells ANN that they still have concerns with the order and
will be meeting with New Jersey transportation officials.
