The operation within this commonwealth by any person, by himself or his agent, of
any aircraft, whether registered or unregistered, and whether with or without a license,
permit or certificate to operate, shall be deemed equivalent to an appointment by
such person of the administrator for aeronautics, or his successor in office, to be
his true and lawful attorney upon whom may be served all lawful processes in any action
or proceeding against him growing out of any accident or collision in which he may
be involved while operating aircraft within the commonwealth, and such operation shall
be a signification of agreement by such person that any lawful process against him
which is served upon said administrator for aeronautics, or his successor in office,
as such attorney shall be of the same legal force and validity as if served on him
personally, and that said chairman of the commission, and his successor in office,
shall continue to be his said attorney so long as any liability on account of such
an accident or collision remains outstanding against him. Sections three A to three E, inclusive, shall apply to such service.
