OKLAHOMA AERO COMMISSION ADOPTS EMERGENCY RULES REQUIRING MET MARKING

Emergency rules designed to protect low-flying aircraft from towers used to measure and record wind speed were recently adopted by the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission. The emergency rules must be approved by the Governor before they become effective. “Anytime that we the opportunity to minimize the risk of serious injury or death among the flying public, we should take the necessary actions to do that,” saidVic Bird (Oklahoma). “These rules will provide pilots such as crop dusters and emergency medical personnel with an added layer of safety.” The new Oklahoma law provides that individuals or companies who want to erect anemometer towers will need to mark them properly as required by the Commission’s rules.
