     volving aviation education to educational institutions in the
     state; publishes various aviation educational materials and dis-
     seminates information on this subject; in the capacity of consul-

     cational departments and boards; supervises veterans flight
     training schools in the state at the request of the Governor's Edu-
     cational Advisory Committee.
 4. Aircraft Registration. All aircraft customarily kept in the
     state are annually registered with the commission, and pay a fee,
     in lieu of a general property tax, established according to the
     weight and age of the aircraft.
 5. Control of Obstructions to Flight. Controls erection of tall
     structures within the state. Permits must be obtained from the

     one mile of the structure, or if over 150 feet high and located
     within a 40:1 glide slope of a public airport. The commission
     cooperates with the Airspace Committee of the federal Air
     Coordinating Committee in matters relating to tall structures
     under federal jurisdiction, and with the Wisconsin Public Serv-
     ice Commission regarding structures under its jurisdiction that
     might constitute a hazard to aerial navigation.
 6. Air Route Development. The commission, represented by the
     Attorney General, takes part in air route cases before the Civil
     Aeronautics Board in which the state and its communities have
     interests that would not otherwise be properly represented.
     Aeronautics Commission decisions to become a party in Civil
     Aeronautics Board cases are approved by the Governor. It is
     customary for local communities desiring state support in air
     route applications to petition the commission for such support.

       as its facilities will permit, in airport site selection, airport
       design and construction and airport zoning.
