Office of Commercial Space Transportation: Notice of Availability, Notice of Public Comment Period, and Request for Comment on the Draft Environmental Assessment for the Shuttle Landing Facility Launch Site Operator License
The FAA is announcing the availability of and requesting comments on the Draft EA for the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) Launch Site Operator License. The FAA has prepared the Draft EA to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the FAA issuing a Launch Site Operator License to Space Florida for the operation of a commercial space launch site at the SLF. Under the proposed action, Space Florida would construct facilities related to the proposed launch site and operate a commercial space launch site at the SLF to conduct launches of horizontal takeoff and horizontal landing launch vehicles from the SLF. The Draft EA considers the potential environmental impacts of the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Certification: Airmen Other Than Flight Crewmembers, Subpart C, Aircraft Dispatchers and App. A Aircraft Dispatcher
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. This collection involves the information that each applicant for an aircraft dispatcher certificate or FAA approval of an aircraft dispatcher course must submit to the FAA. These applications, reports and training course materials are provided to the local Flight Standards District Office of the FAA that oversees the certificates and FAA approvals. The collection is necessary for the FAA to determine qualification and the ability of the applicant to safely dispatch aircraft. Without this collection of information, applicants for a certificate or course approval would not be able to receive certification or approval. The collection of information for those who choose to train aircraft dispatcher applicants is to protect the applicants by ensuring that they are properly trained.
Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee-Open Meeting
Pursuant to Section 10(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, notice is hereby given of a meeting of the Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee (COMSTAC).
Amendment of Class D Airspace and Class E Airspace; Jacksonville, NC and Establishment of Class D Airspace; Jacksonville, NC
This action amends Class D airspace at New River Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS), at Jacksonville, NC, by removing Albert J. Ellis Airport, Jacksonville, NC, from the legal description, and establishing Albert J. Ellis Airport under its own designation. This is an editorial change that continues to provide the controlled airspace required for the new air traffic control tower at Albert J. Ellis Airport for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of New River MCAS in Class D and E airspace, replaces the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'', and makes an editorial change to the airspace designation.
Amendment of Class D Airspace and Class E Airspace; Wrightstown, NJ
This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register on July 10, 2018, amending Class D and Class E airspace at McGuire Field (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst), and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface by updating the name and geographic coordinates of Ocean County Airport (formerly Robert J. Miller Airpark, Toms River, NJ). The document incorrectly identified Wrightstown, PA in the title. This action corrects the error to Wrightstown, NJ.
Amendment of Class D Airspace and Class E Airspace, and Revocation of Class E Airspace: New Smyrna Beach, FL
This action amends Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface, and removes Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, New Smyrna Beach, FL. This action accommodates airspace reconfiguration due to the decommissioning of New Smyrna Beach non-directional beacon radio (NDB), and cancellation of the NDB approaches. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport, and Massey Ranch Airpark, and replaces the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal description of Class D airspace.
