Explanation of Changes
Direct questions through appropriate facility/service center office staff to the Office of Primary Interest (OPI).
10-2-3. PROPOSALS SUBJECT TO AERONAUTICAL STUDY
This change provides clarification that on-airport aeronautical studies may be conducted on a case-by-case basis as deemed necessary by FAA. This change also amends subparagraph d by adding “as determined necessary by FAA" because aeronautical studies are more on a case-by-case basis. This change amends subparagraph j to address the existing text which conflicts with policy contained in FAA Order 5300.1G, Modifications to Agency Airport Design, Construction, and Equipment Standards. The revised text includes aeronautical studies that can be conducted to assess existing airport conditions not previously studied by FAA to be used to ensure the safety of aircraft movement and its efficient use. The change amends subparagraph k to add the word “aircraft" because there are airport situations that necessitate an aeronautical study as determined by FAA for certain occurring or proposed aircraft ground operations.
32-4-2. NATIONAL HISTORIC PRESERVATION ACT (NHPA) § 106
This change adds new guidance to paragraph 32-4-2, and identifies ATO airspace actions that have no potential to cause effects to historic properties. When ATO proposes these types of actions, ATO will not have any further obligations under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, including consultation.
Editorial changes include a correction of the title of FIG 6-3-5; updates to the distribution, subscription, and purchase information in Chapter 1, Section 1, and in the Distribution paragraph on the Change cover page; and removing the outdated facsimile method of petitions in paragraph 7-1-4 while aligning certain terms with the GPO style manual.
