Investigations and inquiries without notice; hearing upon request.
Nothing in this Act shall be taken to limit or restrict the power of
the Department, summarily of its own motion, with or without notice, to
conduct any investigation or inquiry authorized by the laws of this State
pertaining to aeronautics, in such manner and by such means as it may deem
proper, and to take such actions as it may deem necessary in connection
therewith. With respect to any rules, rulings, regulations, decisions or
orders which the Department is authorized to issue without a hearing, and
so issues, except as otherwise provided herein, any person, municipality or
other political subdivision affected thereby and deeming such rules,
rulings, regulations, decisions or orders, or any of them, improper,
unreasonable or contrary to law, may apply for a hearing thereon, setting
forth specifically in such application every ground of opposition which the
applicant desires to urge against such rule, ruling, regulation, decision
or order. The Department may, in its discretion, grant or deny the
application for such a hearing.
The rules and regulations of the Department with respect to the filing
of any formal application or the conducting of any formal hearing, for
whatever purpose, may be waived at the request of any party to any
proceeding, except over the written objection of any other party entitled
to be heard therein.
No formal application or formal hearing shall be required for the
purpose of registering any federal license, certificate or permit, except
as otherwise expressly provided in this Act.
