Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.




FAA is considering a request from the City of Vidalia to waive the requirement that 6.11 acres of surplus property located at the Vidalia Regional Airport be used for aeronautical purposes. Currently, the ownership of the property provides for the protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use which would continue to be protected with deed restrictions required in the transfer of land ownership. The land is owned and operated by the airport, but not currently in use or planned for aeronautical use.


Comments must be received on or before July 8, 2019.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The FAA is reviewing a request to release 6.11 acres of surplus property at the Vidalia Regional Airport (VDI) under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47151(d). On May 1, 2019, the City of Vidalia requested the FAA release 6.11 acres of surplus property for economic development purposes. The FAA has determined that the proposed property release at the Vidalia Regional Airport, as submitted by the City, meets the procedural requirements of the FAA and release of the property does not and will not impact future aviation needs at the airport. The location of the land relative to existing or anticipated aircraft noise contours greater than 65 ldn are not considered to be an issue. The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this notice. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project for aviation facilities at the Vidalia Regional Airport.

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

In addition, any person may, upon request, inspect the request, notice and other documents germane to the request in person at the Vidalia Regional Airport.
