[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of East Hampton 3-31-1950 by Ord. No. XII of the General Village Ordinances (Ch. 4 of the 1971 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
On and after the first day of June 1950, only aircraft and pilots licensed by the United States Department of Commerce shall be permitted to operate in or over the Incorporated Village of East Hampton; provided, however, that this restriction shall not apply to public aircraft of the federal government or of a state, territory or possession, or of a political subdivision thereof.
Exclusive of taking off and landing, and except as otherwise permitted by Section 88 of the Air Commerce Regulations of the United States of America, no aircraft shall be flown over the congested parts of the Village of East Hampton nor over any open-air assembly of persons therein, except at a height sufficient to permit a reasonably safe emergency landing, which in no case shall be less than 1,000 feet.
Except as herein otherwise provided, the operation of any airplane or aircraft in or over the Village of East Hampton so as to interfere with the safety and health of the inhabitants of said Village and/or the preservation of peace and good order therein, and/or the protection of property in said Village, is hereby prohibited.
Except for an emergency landing, no airplane or aircraft shall land within the limits of the Incorporated Village of East Hampton without prior approval therefor from the Village Board. Any landing of an airplane or aircraft within such Village limits shall be deemed, prima facie, not an emergency landing.
Any person, firm or corporation violating any of the provisions of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be subject to a fine not exceeding the sum of $250 for any offense, and each day that a violation continues shall be deemed to constitute a separate offense.
