Did you know there are approximately 1100 aircraft registered in Maine? As an owner, starting January 1, 2004, you may use the Internet, to renew your municipal aircraft registration in one quick and easy transaction. This new on-line service will enable you to print your registration certificate on your own printer, (decals will arrive in the mail within 7 to 10 business days), and payment may be made by electronic check.
The Maine Department of Transportation, in partnership with InforME, recently announced that it plans to offer Maine aircraft owners a convenient on-line service alternative called, “Aircraft Registration Renewal ” from January to June 30, 2004. Accessible at the following website: www.meaircraftreg.com/, and via the Maine State Portal at: www.maine.gov, this service will be available throughout the 2004 renewal period. A “walk-through” demonstration is available on the website to assist registrants.
This new service, affords Maine aircraft owners the benefits of “eGovernment” service and delivery. By inputting identifying information on-line, an aircraft owner’s registration record is quickly retrieved, and a payment screen provided. Electronic check payment is accepted through a system that assures security and privacy of personal information. With instant access and payment, the renewal process is quick and easy.
The on-line Aircraft Registration Renewal service will be available during the regular renewal season, starting in January. Municipal participation in the program is voluntary and there are currently fifteen towns and cities participating. Citizens interested in bringing Aircraft Registration Renewal to their municipalities should contact their local officials.
