SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the provisions of Title 49, U.S.C. 47153(c), and 47107(h)(2), the FAA is considering a proposal from the Executive Director, Port of Friday Harbor, to change a portion of the Friday Harbor Airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use. A total of 24 parcels were included in the request. The FAA has reviewed the request and determined that all of the parcels or portions thereof in the request package except for parcels 44, 55 and 57 can be released from aeronautical use. The FAA concurs that the other parcels in the package are no longer needed for aeronautical purposes or are otherwise inaccessible by aircraft. The land will remain under the Port of Friday Harbor ownership and will be leased at fair market value for non-aeronautical revenue generation. The revenue will support the Airports aviation needs, including upcoming projects associated with the pending B-II classification.

The proposed use of this property is considered compatible with other airport operations in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in Federal Register on February 16, 1999.
