Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: 2013-23671
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-09-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 1.07 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois. The property is located at the southeast corner of Berteau Avenue and George Street in Schiller Park, Illinois, and is currently vacant. There have been no federal investments in the parcel. The parcel is not needed for aeronautical purposes due to its remote location relative to the airfield. The proposed non aeronautical use of the property (to become effective after the sale to the Village of Schiller Park) is to be incorporated into a joint storm water detention/compensatory storage facility. The City of Chicago (City) will reserve an easement in the property for compensatory storage of storm water.
Emergency Medical Equipment
Document Number: 2013-23522
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-09-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action supplements the preamble published in the Federal Register on April 12, 2001 (66 FR 19028). The FAA has reviewed data for automated external defibrillators and enhanced emergency medical kits to amend the ``no go'' provision. Data show that allowing these items to be incomplete, missing, or inoperative for one flight in accordance with the FAA master minimum equipment list does not adversely affect aviation safety. This action provides notice of the data finding and makes available the corresponding policy change for the one-flight relief for use of emergency medical equipment.
