In accordance with the Wendell H.

The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Charleston International Airport under the provisions of AIR 21.

The FAA is reviewing a request by the Charleston County Aviation Authority to release 266.954 acres of airport property at the Charleston International Airport. The Charleston County Aviation Authority plans to sell the subject property for the purpose of aircraft manufacturing and related support functions.

All three Parcels of land were originally acquired from Georgia Pacific under ADAP Grant 6-45-0012-01 in September, 1976 for future airport development.

1. Parcel A is 141.1 acres, the largest of the three parcels. It is located northwest of the intersection of International Boulevard and Michaux Parkway. The Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR-9) is located on this parcel. The Charleston County Aviation Authority granted an easement to the FAA for this facility that runs with the land into perpetuity or until abandoned by the FAA.

2. Parcel B is 103.0 acres located south of International Boulevard, east of Michaux Parkway and west of Interstate 526 (Mark Clark Expressway).

3. Parcel C is 22.8 acres fronting International Boulevard and encompasses three office buildings and other various site improvements. This property is commonly referred to as the South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA) Tract or Trident area.

Fair market value will be obtained from the sale of the subject airport property. The use of the revenue generated from the sale of the property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999 (64 FR 7696). The Aviation Authority's airport account will be properly compensated, thereby serving the interests of civil aviation. In addition, the proposed use of this property is compatible with airport operations.
