Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, notice is hereby given that the U.S. Department of Transportation—Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving the proposed Horizon Air Operations Specifications Amendment to allow scheduled air service to Mammoth Yosemite Airport (MMH) on May 14, 2008. The ROD documents the FAA's decision to approve the federal actions necessary to implement Horizon Air's requested Operations Specifications Amendment that permits scheduled air service to and from MMH using Bombardier DHC 8-400 (Q-400) turbopropeller powered aircraft. Horizon Air may proceed with implementing commercial air service with two daytime flights between MMH and Los Angeles International Airport beginning in the winter ski season of 2008/2009 (approximately December to April) provided the Town of Mammoth Lakes obtains a 14 CFR Part 139 Class 1 Airport Operating Certificate for MMH.
The ROD was based on the FAA's Final Environmental Impact Statement, dated March 2008, that evaluated Horizon Air's Request for Operations Specifications Amendment to Provide Start Printed Page 32782Scheduled Air Service to Mammoth Yosemite Airport. The Notice of Availability for the Final EIS was published in the Federal Register on April 4, 2008 (73 FR 18527).
