SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to implement a Letter of Agreement (LOA) between Boston Airport Traffic Control Tower (BOS ATCT), Boston Consolidated Terminal Radar Approach Control (A90) and Hyannis Air Service Inc., (OBA Cape Air [KAP]) for seaplane operations in the Boston, Massachusetts Inner Harbor. This proposed LOA would ensure standardized, safe and de-conflicted seaplane operations in the Boston, Massachusetts Inner Harbor from BOS ATCT operations and allows for efficient airspace operations in the General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport (BOS) Class B airspace. The proposed VFR handling of seaplane arrivals and departures will enhance safety and minimize delays for aircraft at BOS. The FAA reviewed the action and determined it to be categorically excluded from further environmental review according to FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. The applicable categorical exclusion is § 5-6.S(i.).
