Landowner Liability - information for Landowners

Our priviledge to fly depends largely on the good nature of the landowners who give us permission to use their property. Unfortunately in this age the concern of exposure to a lawsuit is a very real concern that might prevent many from granting us permission who would otherwise be willing to do so. A number of states have passed laws to protect landowners from these sorts of lawsuits. In general this protection applies only when there is no money involved (or limited to small amounts) Here are the particulars for states in this area (note: one or another of these states likes to change their links every few weeks - especially West Virginia - so if one is not working drop me a line and I'll update it - again. I've finally also given up and made .pdf copies of each statue, so if the link doesn't work today you can still read the statute and maybe have some clues as to how to find it on the state site):
