Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.




The FAA is considering a request from Tulsa Airports Improvement Trust to change approximately 507 acres located on the east side of the airport between North Mingo Road and Highway 169 from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the conversion of the airport property.

The proposal consists of three parcels of land which were originally acquired under the following grants: Federal Airport Aid Program (FAAP) Nos. 9-34-032-C132 in 1963 and 3-34-032-C514 in 1965 and Airport Development Aid Program (ADAP) No.6-40-99-15 in 1978. The land comprising these parcels is outside the forecasted need for aviation development and is no longer needed for indirect or direct aeronautical use. The Airport wishes to develop this land for compatible commercial, non-aeronautical use. The Airport will retain ownership of this land and ensure the protection of Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use. The income from the conversion of these parcels will benefit the aviation community by reinvestment in the airport.

Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the conversion of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from Start Printed Page 26717the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the conversion of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.
