  • Flight regulations stipulate that the baseline height at which one can fly over the city of Los Santos is 1,250ft or as written ‘200ft over the Maze Bank Tower’ which is 1,050ft.
    • There is no mention of a baseline height for the county, or what defines the boundaries of the city of Los Santos

  • The bill also contains the fees which are the following:

Licensing$12,500State of San Andreas
  • This bill was introduced by James Paxton

In review, these bills are outlining the basic governance of this state, however some concerns have been raised on the bill regarding the Flight Administration. It severely limits who can become a pilot to the quite wealthy, instead of the enthusiastic and willing, which limits business prospects and revenue for the industry. The bill also has some undefined items, such as the boundaries of ‘the city of Los Santos’ and if there are limitations for flight levels over the county.
