On January 21, 2015, PRPA, sponsor of Diego Jimenez Torres Airport (X95), informed the FAA that the Airport will close permanently on April 30, 2015. (See enclosed letter) X95 is a small 94-acre non-towered, general aviation airport. The useful life of the federally funded improvements expired in 2013. FAA recognizes that PRPA is no longer contractually obligated to continue operating this airport. Title 49 United States Code § 46319 requires a public agency (as defined in section 47102) may not permanently close an airport listed in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems under section 47103 without providing written notice to the Administrator of the FAA at least 30 days before the date of the closure. The FAA recognizes the letter dated January 21, 2015 from PRPA meets this requirement.
