The sale of the subject property will result in the land at the Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO) being changed from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use and release the surface lands from the conditions of the AIP Grant Agreement Grant Assurances, but retaining the mineral rights. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport will receive fair market value for the property.

gave the Secretary of Transportation the authorization to grant an 
airport, city, or county release from any of the terms, conditions,

of 1970 (84 Stat. 232).
    On January 9, 2014, the FAA determined that the request to release 
deed restrictions at the Yellowstone Airport submitted by the Montana 
Department of Transportation meets the procedural requirements of the 
Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA may approve the request, in 
whole or in part, no later than February 28, 2014.
    The following is a brief overview of the request:
    The Montana Department of Transportation is proposing the release 
of deed restrictions at the Yellowstone Airport from a Correction Deed 
issued on August 12, 1968. On October 7, 1963, a deed containing 
restrictions transferred the airport property from the United States to 
the State of Montana. The airport was built in 1963 as a cooperative 
effort between the United States Departments of the Interior and 
Agriculture, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the State 
of Montana. A subsequent Correction Deed (correcting the legal 
description) issued on August 12, 1968 contains those same 
restrictions, under which the airport has operated for 50 years. In an 
effort to make the airport more economically viable, the State of 
Montana and the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) request the 
following deed restrictions be removed:
     Deed Restriction 1. ``The State of Montana will use the 
lands herein conveyed for airport development.'': Requesting release of 
214.45 acres from this deed restriction in order to maintain financial 
viability by permitting possible development of these areas for non-
airport development related purposes to generate new sources of income 
to operate and maintain the airport.
     Deed Restriction 6. ``That all facilities of the airport 
developed with Federal aid and all those useable for landing and take-
off of aircraft will be available at all times without charge for use 
by the Department of Agriculture and Interior in the conduct of its 
official business in common with other aircraft.'': Requesting release 
of all airport property from this deed restriction in order to maintain 
financial viability by being permitted to charge for substantial use by 
the Department of Agriculture and Department of Interior aircraft, in 
compliance with Grant Assurance 27.
     Deed Restriction 7. ``That no commercial overnight 
facilities, such a motels, hotels, or private residences will be 
constructed on the property herein conveyed.'': Requesting release of 
214.45 acres from this deed restriction in order to maintain financial 
viability by permitting possible development of commercial overnight 
facilities and generate new sources of income to operate and maintain 
the airport. MDT understands that residential development is non-
compliant with its federal grant assurances and has no intention of 
allowing private residences to be constructed on airport property.
     Deed Restriction 8. ``That commercial advertising signs 
will be prohibited within the airport access road area.'': Requesting 
release of 104.93 acres from this deed restriction in order to maintain 
financial viability by permitting possible development of commercial 
advertising signs within the airport access road area and generate new 
sources of income to operate and maintain the airport.
    Any person may inspect, by appointment, the request in person at 
the FAA office listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
    In addition, any person may, upon appointment and request, inspect
