Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land; Bowman Municipal Airport, BPP, Bowman, North Dakota.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is considering a proposal to change 162.71 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at the former Bowman Municipal Airport, BPP, Bowman, ND. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use because the new Bowman Regional Airport, BWW, Bowman, ND is open and available for public aeronautical use.

The former Bowman Airport BPP site is located one mile west of the City of Bowman, ND and parallel to the north of U.S. Highway 12. The airport's prior aeronautical use was for general aviation and recreational flying. The proposed non-aeronautical use of the property will be converted to industrial use by the local economic development group.
