45-1101. AIRCRAFT IMPROVEMENT LIEN — SPECIAL LIEN DEPENDENT UPON POSSESSION. (1) Any person, firm, or corporation who expends labor, skill, or materials upon an aircraft, aircraft engines, propellers, appliances, spare parts, or related equipment, at the request of its owner, reputed owner, authorized agent of the owner, or lawful possessor of the aircraft, has a special lien, dependent upon possession, on the aircraft for the just and reasonable charges for the labor performed and material furnished up to the amount of the written estimate or subsequent oral or written modifications thereto.

(2) Provided however, a person, firm, or corporation expending labor, skill or materials pursuant to the provisions of subsection (1) of this section shall not have a special lien on the aircraft unless the person, firm, or corporation delivers a written estimate regarding the nature and cost of repair work to the owner, reputed owner, authorized agent of the owner or lawful possessor of the aircraft prior to expending labor, skill or materials on the aircraft.

(3) If not paid within two (2) months after the work is done, the person, firm or corporation may proceed to sell the property at public auction after first providing written notice of the impending sale to the owner, reputed owner, authorized agent of the owner, or lawful possessor of the aircraft, as well as any known secured parties or lienholders, by United States mail, certified, return receipt requested, or equivalent private courier service that provides evidence of date of delivery of mail. The person, firm or corporation shall give ten (10) days’ public notice of the sale by advertising in some newspaper published in the county in which the work was done; or, if there be no newspaper published in the county, then by posting notices of the sale in three (3) public places in the town where the work was done, for ten (10) days previous to the sale. The proceeds of the sale must be applied to the discharge of the lien and the cost of keeping and selling the property; the remainder, if any, must be paid over to the other secured parties or lienholders, if any, and the owner. Provided however, that the person, firm or corporation who is about to make, alter or repair the aircraft or related equipment, in order to derive the benefits of this section, must, before commencing such making, altering or repairing, give notice of the intention to so make, alter or repair the aircraft or related equipment, by registered mail, to any holder of a security interest which is of record at the FAA, at least three (3) days before commencing the making, altering or repairing, and if notice in writing within the three (3) days is not given by the holder of a security interest notifying such person, firm or corporation not to perform such services, then the making, altering or repairing may proceed and the prior lien provided for herein attaches to the aircraft or related equipment.
