South Carolina Celebrates Passage of H.4673

Triple TreeSouth Carolina celebrates the passage of H.4673 which Governor Nikki Haley signed into law on June 6.

The passage of H.4673 adds “aviation activities” into the SC Recreational Use statute. South Carolina is the 23rd state in the nation to adopt this legislation.

Kathy Hegenberger led the charge in advocating for this legislation. Hegenberger who is also a apart of the Recreational Aviation Foundation has watched other states embrace this legislation.¬† “This is just one more step to South Carolina being an aviation friendly state,” said Hegenberger. Practically, the law would limit the liability of property owners for aviation activities occurring on their property.

Thank you to all members and aviation enthusiasts who called on their legislators and asked for support of this bill. ¬†This success was a grassroots effort by South Carolina’s aviation community.
