Airport owners that desire to sell a portion of their airport property should contact the FAA compliance specialist to determine the extent of Federal obligations associated with the tract of land in question. Any release, modification, reformation or amendment of an airport agreement between the owner and the United States must be based on a request made in writing and signed by a duly authorized official of the public agency that owns the airport.
Although no special form is required, an owner's request should be specific, as applicable and known. Please address the following in your request:
Each request should have a scaled drawing attached showing all airport property and airport facilities which are currently obligated for airport purposes by agreements with the United States. Attach other exhibits such as maps, photographs, plans and appraisal report, which support or justify the request.
Airport owners must revise their Airport Layout Plan (ALP) to reflect the changes to land areas and airport facilities the result from their actions. The sponsor shall include a brief narrative that outlines the rationale used in arriving at the revised plan, i.e., crosswind coverage with only the N/S and NW/SE runways, taxiing patterns to be established, how clearance lines were established, and what kind of aircraft and numbers of operations were assumed in preparing the revised plan.
Requests for the release of maintenance obligations do not require items 9,10, and 11 as noted above.
