Power of Attorney
Mont. Code Ann. Sec. 67-3-203 states "The owner of an aircraft...must submit an application for registration or registration renewal to the department on or before March 1 of each year." The statute does not state that an employee or other representative may do this; it clearly requires the OWNER to make application. A power of attorney is needed for either a business-owned aircraft or an aircraft being registered by an employee of the owner.
Please complete the Power of Attorney – Aircraft Registration form and submit along with the Aircraft Registration Form if the above applies.
