SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release approximately 48.24 acres of airport property at the Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2). On July 30, 2012, the City of Wichita's Airport Engineer requested from the FAA that approximately 48.24 acres of property be released for sale to the City of Wichita. On Nov. 5, 2012, the FAA determined that the request to release property at Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO) submitted by the Sponsor meets the procedural requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration and the release of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this Notice.

The following is a brief overview of the request:

Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO) is proposing the release of a parcel, totaling 48.24 acres. The release of land is necessary to comply with Federal Aviation Administration Grant Assurances that do not allow federally acquired airport property to be used for non-aviation purposes. The sale of the subject property will result in the land at the Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the surface lands from the conditions of the AIP Grant Agreement Grant Assurances, but retaining the mineral rights. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in purchasing land adjacent to the Wichita Mid-continent Airport (ICT), which is also owned by the City of Wichita, Wichita Airport Authority.

Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect the application, notice and other documents determined by the FAA to be related to the application in person at the Colonel James Jabara Airport.
