New Jersey issued an order last month that requires aircraft “parked or stored” for more than 24 hours in the state be secured by at least two locks. A state spokesman said the order applies to all general aviation aircraft not in a locked hangar. In addition to locking doors, acceptable locks include those for propellers, magnetos, wheels and throttles.
