SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) The Chicago Convention was adopted to promote the safe and orderly development of international civil aviation. The Chicago Convention also created the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which promulgates uniform international Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) aimed at standardizing international civil aviation operational practices and services. Currently, these SARPs are detailed in 18 annexes to the Chicago Convention. Annex 11, Air Traffic Services, and Annex 15, Aeronautical Information Services, are of particular relevance to this notice as they address civil aircraft operations, the establishment of airspace, ATC services in international airspace, and the dissemination of aeronautical information. Most recently ICAO recommended, and the FAA concurred, that all Contracting States take action to define their oceanic airspace, and inform those interested as to the type of ATC services that would be provided. By this action the FAA gives notice to those interested parties operating in the oceanic airspace controlled by the U.S. of the type of ATC services provided within the airspace. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ATC Services/Procedures Provided Pursuant to the Chicago Convention, the U.S. accepted responsibility for providing ATC services over the domestic U.S. and within certain areas of the western half of the North Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and the North Pacific. In the airspace over the contiguous U.S. and out to 12 nautical miles (NM) from the U.S. shores, domestic ATC separation is applied (with certain limitations) along with additional services (e.g., traffic advisories, bird activity information, weather and chaff information, etc.). The U.S. also manages airspace areas outside of the domestic U.S. These areas are called Control Areas (CTA) and Flight Information Regions (FIR). Within these CTA/FIR the U.S. applies oceanic separation procedures consistent with ICAO regional procedures. The FAA may also apply, per Annex 11, domestic ATC procedures within designated Offshore/Control airspace areas provided certain conditions are VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jun 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 met. Specifically, these airspace areas must be within signal coverage of domestic radio navigational aid or ATC radar coverage from the 12–NM limit outward to the inner oceanic CTA/FIR boundaries. The Chicago Convention permits the application of domestic ATC procedures even though this is international airspace. However, within the oceanic CTA/FIR area itself, ICAO oceanic ATC procedures are used instead of domestic procedures. Article of Exemption Article 3 of the Chicago Convention provides that the Chicago Convention, and its annexes, are not applicable to state-aircraft (which includes military aircraft). However, article 3 requires states, when issuing regulations for their state aircraft, to have due regard for the safety of navigation of civil aircraft. The U.S., as a Contracting State, complies with this provision. Further, article 12 obligates each Contracting State to adopt measures to ensure that persons operating an aircraft within its territory will comply with that state’s air traffic rules, and with Annex 2, Rules of the Air, when operating over the high seas. The U.S. has satisfied this responsibility through Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 91, General Operating and Flight Rules, which requires that operators of aircraft comply with U.S. operating rules when in the U.S. and that U.S.-registered aircraft comply with Annex 2 when over the high seas (see 14 CFR 91.703). Section 91.703 applies only to civil aircraft. State aircraft operating outside the U.S. are only subject to the ‘‘due regard’’ provisions of article 3 of the Chicago Convention. The SARPs in Annex 11, apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a Contracting State that has accepted the responsibility of providing air traffic services over the high seas (oceanic airspace), or in airspace of undetermined sovereignty. U.S. Controlled Oceanic Airspace The ICAO classes of airspace and associated services provided, as described in Annex 11, to be used by the U.S. within their delegated Oceanic/ Arctic CTA/FIR areas are: (1) Class A airspace area (instrument flight rules (IFR) flights only are permitted, all flights are provided with ATC service and are separated from each other); (2) Class E airspace area (IFR and visual flight rules (VFR) flights are permitted, IFR flights are provided with ATC service and are separated from other IFR flights); and (3) Class G airspace area (IFR and VFR flights are permitted and receive flight information service if PO 00000 Frm 00132 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37711 requested). All flights in these airspace areas would receive traffic information as far as is practical. Anchorage Oceanic CTA/FIR Aircraft operating in the Anchorage Oceanic CTA/FIR can expect to receive ATC services associated with the following types of airspace areas and associated altitudes: Class G—below FL 55; Class A—FL 55 to FL 600, inclusive except less than 100 NM seaward is Class E below FL 180; Class E—above FL 600.

ACTION: Notice of request to release airport land. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jun 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 approximately 5,037 square feet of airport property at the Elko Municipal Airport (Airport), City of Elko, Nevada. The City of Elko proposes to release the airport land in order to acquire an equal 5,037 square feet parcel of privatelyowned land. The land exchange was proposed after a 2011 deed survey disclosed that the airport perimeter fence encroached into private property abutting the airport. Relocation of the fence is not practical due to the cost associated with moving the fence and underground utilities. The parties concluded that the encroachment problem could be resolved with an equitable land exchange. Since the release land is not needed for airport purposes, the exchange will not negatively impact the airport or civil aviation. DATES: Comments must be received on or before July 31, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Comments on the request may be mailed or delivered to the FAA at the following address Mike N. Williams, Manager, Federal Aviation Administration, Phoenix Airports District Office, Federal Register Comment, 3800 N. Central Avenue, Suite 1025, 10th Floor, Phoenix, Arizona 85012. In addition, one copy of the comment submitted to the FAA must be mailed or delivered to Mr. Mark Gibbs, Airport Director, Elko Regional Airport, 975 Terminal Way, Elko, Nevada 89801. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21), Public Law 106–181 (Apr. 5, 2000; 114 Stat. 61), this notice must be published in the Federal Register 30 days before the Secretary may waive any condition imposed on a federally obligated airport by surplus property conveyance deeds or grant agreements. The following is a brief overview of the request: The City of Elko, Nevada requested a release from sponsor grant assurance obligations for approximately 5,037 square feet of airport land to facilitate a land exchange so the airport can acquire an equal 5,037 square feet of privatelyowned land. A land survey conducted in 2011 disclosed that the airport perimeter fence encroached into private property abutting the airport. Relocating the fence line and underground utilities would be costly for the Airport. The City offered to trade a parcel of unused airport land that is not needed for airport purposes for the portion of land into which the airport fence encroaches. The land exchange would conform to Nevada Revised Statutes for Boundary PO 00000 Frm 00133 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Line Adjustments. Appraisals concluded the two parcels have equal values. As a result, the City and land owner concluded that a land swap would represent an equitable and less expensive way to resolve the encroachment problem. The release land is not needed for airport purposes and land exchange will result in no net loss in value or negative impact for the airport. The reuse of the released parcel for commercial purposes represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation. The acquisition of the privately owned parcel will obviate the need to relocate the perimeter fence. Therefore, the exchange provides a benefit to the airport and civil aviation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)

    The Chicago Convention was adopted to promote the safe and orderly 
development of international civil aviation. The Chicago Convention 
also created the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), 
which promulgates uniform international Standards and Recommended 
Practices (SARPs) aimed at standardizing international civil aviation 
operational practices and services. Currently, these SARPs are detailed 
in 18 annexes to the Chicago Convention. Annex 11, Air Traffic 
Services, and Annex 15, Aeronautical Information Services, are of 
particular relevance to this notice as they address civil aircraft 
operations, the establishment of airspace, ATC services in 
international airspace, and the dissemination of aeronautical 
information.
    Most recently ICAO recommended, and the FAA concurred, that all 
Contracting States take action to define their oceanic airspace, and 
inform those interested as to the type of ATC services that would be 
provided.
    By this action the FAA gives notice to those interested parties 
operating in the oceanic airspace controlled by the U.S. of the type of 
ATC services provided within the airspace.

ATC Services/Procedures Provided

    Pursuant to the Chicago Convention, the U.S. accepted 
responsibility for providing ATC services over the domestic U.S. and 
within certain areas of the western half of the North Atlantic, the 
Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and the North Pacific. In the airspace 
over the contiguous U.S. and out to 12 nautical miles (NM) from the 
U.S. shores, domestic ATC separation is applied (with certain 
limitations) along with additional services (e.g., traffic advisories, 
bird activity information, weather and chaff information, etc.).
    The U.S. also manages airspace areas outside of the domestic U.S. 
These areas are called Control Areas (CTA) and Flight Information 
Regions (FIR). Within these CTA/FIR the U.S. applies oceanic separation 
procedures consistent with ICAO regional procedures.
    The FAA may also apply, per Annex 11, domestic ATC procedures 
within designated Offshore/Control airspace areas provided certain 
conditions are met. Specifically, these airspace areas must be within 
signal coverage of domestic radio navigational aid or ATC radar 
coverage from the 12-NM limit outward to the inner oceanic CTA/FIR 
boundaries. The Chicago Convention permits the application of domestic 
ATC procedures even though this is international airspace. However, 
within the oceanic CTA/FIR area itself, ICAO oceanic ATC procedures are 
used instead of domestic procedures.

Article of Exemption

    Article 3 of the Chicago Convention provides that the Chicago 
Convention, and its annexes, are not applicable to state-aircraft 
(which includes military aircraft). However, article 3 requires states, 
when issuing regulations for their state aircraft, to have due regard 
for the safety of navigation of civil aircraft. The U.S., as a 
Contracting State, complies with this provision.
    Further, article 12 obligates each Contracting State to adopt 
measures to ensure that persons operating an aircraft within its 
territory will comply with that state's air traffic rules, and with 
Annex 2, Rules of the Air, when operating over the high seas. The U.S. 
has satisfied this responsibility through Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 91, General Operating and Flight Rules, which 
requires that operators of aircraft comply with U.S. operating rules 
when in the U.S. and that U.S.-registered aircraft comply with Annex 2 
when over the high seas (see 14 CFR 91.703).
    Section 91.703 applies only to civil aircraft. State aircraft 
operating outside the U.S. are only subject to the ``due regard'' 
provisions of article 3 of the Chicago Convention. The SARPs in Annex 
11, apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a Contracting State 
that has accepted the responsibility of providing air traffic services 
over the high seas (oceanic airspace), or in airspace of undetermined 
sovereignty.

U.S. Controlled Oceanic Airspace

    The ICAO classes of airspace and associated services provided, as 
described in Annex 11, to be used by the U.S. within their delegated 
Oceanic/Arctic CTA/FIR areas are: (1) Class A airspace area (instrument 
flight rules (IFR) flights only are permitted, all flights are provided 
with ATC service and are separated from each other); (2) Class E 
airspace area (IFR and visual flight rules (VFR) flights are permitted, 
IFR flights are provided with ATC service and are separated from other 
IFR flights); and (3) Class G airspace area (IFR and VFR flights are 
permitted and receive flight information service if requested). All 
flights in these airspace areas would receive traffic information as 
far as is practical.

Anchorage Oceanic CTA/FIR
