I could have sworn that I read somewhere that gliders were illegal in PA, but for the life of me I can not find the website that list the restrictions by state. Can someone please point me in the right direction?!

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, I was not sure as to what catagory this would fall under!

I remember seeing a web page with that info too. Some of the info may be outdated but I do believe they are illegal in PA. I would suggest you call Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and ask if they can direct you to the right place for your answers. The number is easy to find online. I always have to find the State vet's numbers before I ship gliders to see if a shipping permit is required in each state so they should help you!

Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania requires a permit for wild life ownership. Please call Pennsylvania Game Commission for permit details. Their website can be found at http://www.pgc.state.pa.us/

The following is from Chapter 29. Special Licenses and Permits, Subchapter D. Permits Relating to Wildlife, Sec. 2963. Exotic wildlife possession permits.

(a) Authorization. - The commission may issue permits to persons to possess exotic wildlife which shall authorize the holder to purchase, receive or possess exotic wildlife from any lawful source from within or without 1 this Commonwealth.

(b) Shelter, care and protection. - No permit provided for in this section shall be granted until the commission is satisfied that the provisions for housing and caring for such exotic wildlife and for protecting the public are proper and adequate and in accordance with the standards established by the commission.

(c) Unlawful acts. - It is unlawful for any person to:
(1) Possess, purchase or receive exotic wildlife, without first securing a permit to possess exotic wildlife issued under this section or regulations pertaining to this section.
(2) Release exotic wildlife into the wild.
(3) Fail to exercise due care in safeguarding the public from attack by exotic wildlife.
(4) Recklessly engage in conduct which places or may place another person in danger of attack by exotic wildlife.

(d) Penalty. -
(1) A violation of this section relating to permits is a summary offense of the third degree.
(2) Any other violation of this section is a summary offense of the fifth degree.
(3) Each day of violation shall constitute a separate offense, but under no circumstances shall the accumulated penalty for purposes of a field receipt exceed $300. There shall be no limit on any accumulated penalty a court may assess.

(e) Discretion of director. - In addition to the penalties provided, the director may, for any violation of this section, revoke or suspend any permit and order the disposal of any exotic wildlife held. Cross References. Section 2963 is referred to in section 2965 of this title.

I just needed to be 100% sure before I told someone no. Thank you everyone for helping me out!

The person is currently in Deleware, but plans to move back to her home state of PA and I just don't want to take the chance of the gliders bouncing from home to home!
