assistance, from certain Federal requirements in connection with the 
privatization of the airport by sale or lease to a private party. 
Specifically, the Administrator may exempt the sponsor from all or part 
of the requirements to use airport revenues for airport-related 
purposes, to pay back a portion of Federal grants upon the sale or 
lease of an airport, and to return airport property deeded by the 
Federal Government upon transfer of the airport. The Administrator is 
also authorized to exempt the private purchaser or lessee from the 
requirement to use all airport revenues for airport-related purposes, 
to the extent necessary to permit the purchaser or lessee to earn 
compensation from the operations of the airport.
    On September 16, 1997, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a 
notice of procedures to be used in applications for exemption under 
Airport Privatization Pilot Program (62 FR 48693). A request for 
participation in the Pilot Program must be initiated by the filing of 
either a preliminary or final application for exemption with the FAA.
    Hendry County submitted an initial preliminary application to the

submitted that information on October 6, 2010-- the filing date of this 
preliminary application. The County may select a private operator, 
negotiate an agreement and submit a final application to the FAA for 
exemption.
    If FAA accepts the final application for review, the application 
will be made available for public review and comment for a sixty-day 
period.
