The State Aviation Administration was created
by Chapter 526, Acts of 1970, as a unit of the
Department of Transportation, replacing the
State Aviation Commission established by Chap-
ter 318, Acts of 1929. It is responsible for devel-
oping and operating airports and for fostering
and regulating aeronautical activity within the
State. The Administrator is appointed by the Sec-
retary of Transportation with the approval of the
Governor and serves at the Secretary's pleasure.

By Chapter 180, Acts of 1972, the operation of
Baltimore Washington International Airport, the
State's major air carrier facility, was assigned to
the State Aviation Administration. As authorized
by this legislation, Baltimore Washington Inter-
national Airport was purchased from Baltimore
City by the State of Maryland on July 26, 1972,
for $36,000,000. The same Act abolished the
Friendship International Airport Authority, origi-
nally created by Chapter 529, Acts of 1970. In
1973 Governor Mandel, by Executive Order,
changed the Airport name from Friendship to
Baltimore Washington.

The State Aviation Administration inspects and
licenses commercial airports, air schools, and air
school instructors for safe operation. It fosters
safety in aviation through its publications—the
newsletter. Flight Plan, a directory of Maryland
airports, and a Maryland aeronautical chart—
and through educational seminars for pilots and

The Administration provides technical and fi-
nancial assistance to airport sponsors and owners
in the preparation of master plans and in im-
provements to facilities. Standardized runway
markings are applied and maintained at airports
throughout the State. A Maryland Aviation Sys-
tem Plan has been prepared in cooperation with
the Planning and Development staff in the Secre-
tary's Office and other State and local agencies
(Code Transportation Article, secs. 5-101 through

The Administration also supervises the opera-
tion of the State-owned Glenn L. Martin Airport
in Baltimore County.
