Background On November 18, 2005, we issued a Notice of availability of proposed AC 25.981–2A, Fuel Tank Flammability, and request for comments (70 FR 71365; November 28, 2005). This Notice announced the availability of and requested comments on a proposed AC which sets forth an acceptable means, but not the only means, of demonstrating compliance with the provisions of the airworthiness standards in that Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Reduction of Fuel Tank Flammability in Transport Category Airplanes’’ (70 FR 70922, November 23, 2005). The comment periods for the NPRM and the proposed AC both end on March 23, 2006. The FAA received requests from a number of entities to extend the comment period on the NPRM to allow public comment on new information that has recently been placed in the public docket. Based on these requests and our belief that additional requests for extensions will be filed shortly, we determined it would be appropriate to extend the comment period on the NPRM by 45 days. Since the proposed AC is associated with the NPRM, we want their comment period closing dates to be the same. Therefore, we need to extend the comment period for the proposed AC by 45 days to be consistent. Absent unusual circumstances, we do not anticipate any further extension of the comment period for the proposed AC. The extension of the comment period for the NPRM is being published concurrently with this extension.

E6–4023 Filed 3–20–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; Faribault Municipal Airport; Faribault Minnesota Federal Aviation Administration, DOT. ACTION: Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to authorize the release of a portion of the airport property. The City of Faribault, MN is proposing to release for sale 29.72 acres of existing airport land for the development of an Army Reserve and Minnesota National Guard Readiness Center. The acreage being released is not needed for aeronautical use as currently identified on the Airport Layout Plan. The acreage comprising this parcel was originally acquired with local funds in 1944 and 1945. The City of Faribault (Minnesota), as airport owner, has concluded that the subject airport is not needed for expansion of airport facilities. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. The appraised value is $830,000 and the Airport will receive that amount. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-inaid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the disposal 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.

Background

    On November 18, 2005, we issued a Notice of availability of 
proposed AC 25.981-2A, Fuel Tank Flammability, and request for comments 
(70 FR 71365; November 28, 2005). This Notice announced the 
availability of and requested comments on a proposed AC which sets 
forth an acceptable means, but not the only means, of demonstrating 
compliance with the provisions of the airworthiness standards in that 
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ``Reduction of Fuel Tank 
Flammability in Transport Category Airplanes'' (70 FR 70922, November 
23, 2005). The comment periods for the NPRM and the proposed AC both 
end on March 23, 2006. The FAA received requests from a number of 
entities to extend the comment period on the NPRM to allow public 
comment on new information that has recently been placed in the public 
docket. Based on these requests and our belief that additional requests 
for extensions will be filed shortly, we determined it would be 
appropriate to extend the comment period on the NPRM by 45 days. Since 
the proposed AC is associated with the NPRM, we want their comment 
period closing dates to be the same. Therefore, we need to extend the 
comment period for the proposed AC by 45 days to be consistent. Absent 
unusual circumstances, we do not anticipate any further extension of 
the comment period for the proposed AC.
    The extension of the comment period for the NPRM is being published 
concurrently with this extension.

Extension of Comment Period

    The FAA finds that an extension of the comment period for the 
Notice of availability of proposed AC 25.981-2A, Fuel Tank 
Flammability, and request for comments is consistent with the public 
interest, and that good cause exists for taking this action.
    Accordingly, the comment period for the Notice of availability of 
proposed AC 25.981-2A, Fuel Tank Flammability, and request for comments 
is extended until May 8, 2006.

    Issued in Washington, DC on March 14, 2006.
