During the 2015 Legislative Session, Senate Bill 269 was passed which authorizes the Oregon Department of Aviation to increase our pilot and aircraft registration fees.
Revenue from these programs goes toward many good causes including: Office of Emergency Management for conducting activities for search and rescue missions; 10% grant match for Federal Aviation Association funding for the General Aviation Entitlement Program and the Capital Construction Improvement Program; and agency staffing and other organizational costs to administer these programs. Additionally, it promotes the aviation infrastructure and develops economic development and jobs outcomes.
