In making a waiver determination, the FAA will consider a significant number of cancellations during those periods because of weather at a destination airport. FAA Decision In consideration of the foregoing, ATA’s request for a grant of waiver is DENIED. Carriers who were uniquely affected by winter weather during January and February 2011 may request a limited grant of waiver. However, any request must detail the hardship caused by the snowstorms and demonstrate that hardship was not caused or exacerbated by underutilization of allocated slots. The FAA will carefully consider these individual requests for waiver. Issued in Washington, DC on March 28, 2011. J. David Grizzle, Chief Counsel.

This safety advisory contains various recommendations to railroads to ensure that this issue is addressed by appropriate policies and procedures, and receives employee compliance. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ron Hynes, Director, Office of Safety Assurance and Compliance, Office of Railroad Safety, FRA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590, telephone (202) 493–6404; or Joseph St. Peter, Trial Attorney, Office of Chief Counsel, FRA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590, telephone (202) 493–6047. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The overall safety of railroad operations in the area of equipment securement and protection has improved in recent years. However, two recent fatal incidents highlight the need to review and adhere to existing Federal regulations and railroad operating rules pertaining to rolling equipment being left in a location that is clear of any adjacent tracks. On May 18, 2005, the Railroad Safety Advisory Committee (RSAC) authorized the RSAC Operating Rules Working Group to address eight human factors (HF) train accident report cause codes that were attributed to nearly half (47 percent) of all HF-caused train accidents nationwide. On February 13, 2008, FRA published a final rule addressing those HF causes, which was codified at Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 218, Subpart F (Subpart F). Two of those eight HF cause codes, H301 and H302, were designated for rolling equipment left out to foul. From 2005 to 2010, HF-caused train accidents, attributed to these two cause codes, were reduced by 66 percent. Unfortunately, despite that overall improvement, the rail industry experienced two recent railroad employee fatalities that appear to have been related to equipment being left in a location where it fouled an adjacent track. Federal Railroad Administration Recent Incidents The FAA invites public comment on the request to release property at the Northeast Philadelphia Airport under the provisions of Section 47125(a) of Title 49 U.S.C. On March 28, 2011, the FAA determined that the request to release property at the Northeast Philadelphia Airport submitted by the City of Philadelphia (City) met the procedural requirements. The following is a brief overview of the request: The City requests the release of real property, totaling 3.5 acres, of aeronautical airport property, to Biagio DeSimone. The land was originally purchased with City funds in 1945. The purpose of the release is to sell the land that was airport property to Biagio DeSimone, the current tenant. The property is located at 11295 E. Roosevelt Boulevard. The Parcel is currently leased to a tenant operating as a dealership and is improved with a 6,225 square foot building being used by the tenant in the operation of its automobile dealership and a gravel parking lot for customers of the dealership. The Parcel is not contiguous to the area being operated as the Northeast Philadelphia Airport. The subject land does not serve an aeronautical purpose and is not needed for airport development, as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. All proceeds from the sale of property are to be used for the capital development of the airport. Fair Market Value (FMV) will be obtained from the land sale and reinvested back in the airport. Any person may inspect the request by appointment at the FAA office address listed above. Interested persons are invited to comment on the proposed release from obligations. All comments will be considered by the FAA to the extent practicable. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Issued in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, April 1, 2011. Lori K.
