Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Duncan, OK
Document Number: 2018-04925
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-03-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK. The FAA is proposing this action as a result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Duncan VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program and the cancellation of the associated instrument procedures. The geographic coordinates of the airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database, as well as an editorial change removing the city associated with the airport name in the airspace designation.
Notice of Intent of Waiver With Respect to Land; Fort Wayne International Airport, Fort Wayne, IN
Document Number: 2018-04923
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-03-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change approximately 78.902 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use of airport property located at Ft. Wayne International, Ft. Wayne, IN. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) proposes to release approximately 78.902 acres of land located on the northeast corner of existing airport property. The land is located to the east of Keller Road and the west of Ardmore Avenue. The land to be released is comprised of Tract 7, Tract 8, and Tract 9 as described in the survey. The land is owned by the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority (FWACAA). The property was originally purchased for the purpose of economic development and to enable the Authority to ensure airport compatible development. The Sponsor is proposing to release and ultimately sell or lease these parcels per local zoning regulations. The proposed future use of the land will be for compatible commercial or industrial developments. The sale of these parcels would allow the Sponsor to further financially support airfield improvement projects. Of the tracts proposed for release, none were acquired with FAA Funding.
