Notice and request for comment.


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a request to release and authorize the sale of 19.098 acres of airport property located at the Charleston International Airport, Charleston, South Carolina, and invites public comment on this notice.

On November 9, 2017, CCAA requested the FAA to release 19.089 acres of airport property. The request will allow CCAA to transfer ownership to the South Carolina Department of Commerce for the use of aircraft manufacturing. In return, the Department of Commerce will transfer 33.715 acres of property to CCAA. The fair market value of the two properties involved are of equal value. The use of the 33.715 acres will allow CCAA to construct a public parking facility. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this notice.

Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
