The FAA invites public comment on the request to transfer property at Clinton-Sherman Airpark under the provisions of the Act.

On August 10, 2006, the FAA determined that the request to transfer property at Clinton-Sherman Airpark submitted by the City of Clinton and Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority met agency requirements. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no later than October 1, 2006.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

On October 9, 2003, the City of Clinton, Oklahoma requested the transfer of surface rights of the Clinton-Sherman Airpark to the Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority (OSIDA).

The subject airport land is subject to covenants prescribed in the release indenture dated June 25, 1971 and grant agreement covenants. The application specifies OSIDA will continue operating the Clinton-Sherman Airport as a public airport for the benefit of civil aviation.
