Federal Aviation Administration January 5, 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Clarification for Submitting Petitions for Rulemaking or Exemption
Document Number: E8-31304
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-01-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making minor technical changes to the requirements for submitting a petition for rulemaking or exemption. In a final rule published in the Federal Register on December 5, 2007, the FAA inadvertently did not make conforming amendments to plain language requirements in the structure and content of the final rule. This technical amendment restructures or reorders the filing of petitions and incorporates a reference for additional filing guidance and instructions using the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS). These changes ensure general rulemaking procedures are clear, written in plain language, and better inform the public of administrative practices.
Notice of Intent To Rule on Request for a Land Exchange at the Moriarty Municipal Airport, Moriarty, NM
Document Number: E8-31241
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-01-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the exchange of property at the Moriarty Municipal Airport, Moriarty, New Mexico. The City of Moriarty as airport owner has requested to exchange land that was acquired for a crosswind runway. Since this acquisition, it has been determined that the planned alignment of the proposed crosswind runway does not meet FAA crosswind criteria and requires realignment. Any and all lands to be exchanged by the city require release from any and all provisions of applicable Grant Agreements and Grant Assurances, and to change forever, the lands requested to be released from aeronautical to nonaeronautical use under the provisions of Section 125 of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment Reform Act for the 21 Century (AIR 21). The City of Moriarty is requesting an exchange of 68.55 acres of land with the State of New Mexico Land Office. These lands to be exchanged are appraised at equal value and no monetary considerations are involved. The City of Moriarty will also exchange 9.63 acres of land with an individual property owner. These lands have also been appraised at equal value and no monetary considerations are involved. The acquisition of these lands by exchange and fee simple purchase of additional property will align the future runway to meet FAA criteria and user requirements.
