AGENCY: The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public that FAA has prepared a Draft Air Quality General Conformity Determination (DGCD) for Proposed Operations of Lynx Aviation, Inc. (Lynx Aviation) at Denver International Airport (DEN) and to request comments from the public on the DGCD. In accordance with Section 176(c) of the Clean Air Act, FAA has assessed whether the emissions that would result from FAA’s action in approving the proposed operation specifications (OPSPECS) for Lynx Aviation’s proposed operations at DEN conform to the applicable Colorado State Implementation Plans (SIPs). The DGCD contains this assessment. DATES: Submit comments on or before August 20, 2007. ADDRESSES: Interested parties may view hard copies of the document in Denver, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time at Environmental Services Section, Department of Aviation, City and mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES SUMMARY: 18 17 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Denver Metropolitan Area is an EPAdesignated attainment/maintenance area for the criteria pollutants carbon monoxide, particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter of 10 micrometers or less (PM10), and ozone (1-hour standard). In addition, DEN is located in an Early Action Compact area for the 8-hour ozone standard. The FAA demonstrates in the DGCD that the sum of the existing aircraft operations at DEN plus the proposed aircraft operations by Lynx Aviation is below the forecast values incorporated into the State Implementation Plan (SIP), and therefore aircraft emissions attributed to flights by Lynx Aviation are already accounted for in the SIP emissions inventories. As a result, the FAA can demonstrate that the proposed action conforms to the SIP.
