Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: 2013-16662
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-07-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change approximately 0.242 acres of airport land consisting of two separate parcels from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use, and to authorize the transfer of these airport properties located at Wittman Regional Airport, to the City of Oshkosh (City) in exchange for 4.764 acres owned by the City. The two parcels of airport land which are currently primarily used as roadway right-of-way and ditches are proposed for non-aeronautical uses. These parcels are no longer needed for aeronautical use. Cul-de- sacs are proposed to be built on each property and the land swapped with the City of Oshkosh in exchange for 4.764 acres of land within two existing public road rights-of-way (portions of West Waukau Avenue and Knapp Street). The lands the airport will receive were vacated by the City of Oshkosh in May 2013 and access will be maintained to adjacent uses by private streets within fenced airport property. A portion of airport property for the proposed West Waukau Avenue cul-de-sac has a portable building used by the Winnebago Sheriff's Department during EAA AirVenture. The building will be shifted 140 feet north to remain on airport property.

The FAA is considering a proposal to change 4.78 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at Bismarck Municipal Airport, Bismarck, North Dakota. The property's location for Parcel A is a triangular parcel of 3.68 acres located west of the street intersection of Airway Avenue and Rifle Range Drive; and the Parcel B is a triangular parcel of 1.1 acres located north of the street intersection of Airway Avenue and Rifle Range Drive within the City of Bismarck, ND. The property's existing aeronautical use is grasslands located outside the approach and departure surfaces of Runway 21 at the Bismarck Municipal Airport, Bismarck, ND. Currently, ownership of the property provides for protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use which would continue to be protected with deed restrictions required in the transfer of land ownership. The proposed non- aeronautical use of the property will likely be zoned industrial however, the exact usage has not been determined. The property is no longer needed for aeronautical use.

These special conditions are issued for the Embraer Model EMB- 550 airplane. This airplane has novel or unusual design features as compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes. These design features include engine size and the potential torque loads imposed by sudden engine stoppage.
