The bill clarifies that liens claimed under ss. 329.41 and 713.58, F.S., for labor, services, fuel, or material furnished to an aircraft are not possessory liens. Thus, a person claiming such a lien does not need to keep possession of the aircraft to enforce the lien.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2019.
