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.
The airport owner should submit one copy of materials to the appropriate FAA Airports Regional Office.
Although no special form is required, an owner's request should be specific, as applicable and known. Please include the following in your request:
Each request should have a scaled drawing attached showing all airport property and airport facilities that are currently obligated for airport purposes by agreements with the United States. Other exhibits supporting or justifying the request--such as maps, photographs, plans, and appraisal reports--should be attached, as appropriate.
A revised Airport Layout Plan (ALP) must be prepared that reflects the changes to land areas and airport facilities attendant to this action. Accompanying this drawing(s) should be 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 plan).
Airport sponsors should direct questions about a sponsor's request for release of airport property to the appropriate FAA Airports Regional Office.
