Essential Air Service at St. George, Alaska

OST-2017-0109

April 25, 2018

City of St. George in Support of Security Air

We remain strongly supportive of our desire to see Security Air granted the EAS for our community. Their proposal best represents our goals and future opportunities for meaningful development and service. I was a young man when Senator Ted Stevens and I made the first aircraft landing on St. George on a widened road built by the people themselves. A huge undertaking for our community. We were now in the modern era. Air service is critical to our survival. Given our location, no one can dispute this.

At St. George, we are always mindful of our service history. We know when we are not being treated fairly. It is an event each time an aircraft lands. Therefore, please give all due consideration to our community's support and leadership support for Security Air's application.

By: Mayor Patrick Plentikoff

Notice to UAS Operators Proposing to Engage in Air Transportation

Issued April 24, 2018 | On File at Federal Register April 26, 2018

Notice

Companies proposing to operate UAS to engage in air transportation, including the delivery of goods for compensation, must first obtain certificate or exemption authority from the Department prior to engaging in the air transportation. The Department intends to use its existing regulatory procedures for processing UAS operators’ requests for economic authority. The Department’s regulation in 14 CFR part 298 provides an exemption to air taxi operators from the certificate requirements of 49 USC § 41101, provided that, among other things, the air carrier is a citizen of the United States as defined in 49 USC § 40102(a)(15), maintains liability insurance required by Part 205 of our rules, and registers with the Department. The exemption authority conferred by Part 298 is not available to air carriers that operate “large” aircraft. For UAS operators looking to transport goods for compensation, an exemption under Part 298 is an appropriate form of economic authority. The Department will consider whether granting the exemption is appropriate based on the specific facts and circumstances of each proposed operation.

To become an air taxi operator, operators must submit a registration application (OST Form 4507) and a current aircraft liability insurance certificate (OST Form 6410). A stamped OST Form 4507 with an effective date will be sent to the operator as confirmation of its approved air taxi registration with the Department. Initial registrations must be mailed along with the required filing fee. Air taxis located in the State of Alaska must submit their OST Form 4507 and OST Form 6410 to Federal Aviation Administration, Alaskan Regional Headquarters. All other air taxis must submit their OST Form 4507 and OST Form 6410 to Federal Aviation Administration.

Seaborne Virgin Islands, Inc. and SB USVI Acquisition, Inc.

OST-2018-0035 - Transfer of Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity

April 25, 2018

Supplemental Information

In response to your inquiry regarding the transaction closing and name change for SB USVI Acquisition, Inc. and Seaborne Virgin Islands, Inc., I am pleased to report that the transaction by which SB USVI acquired the assets of Seaborne was consummated on April 20, 2018, giving SB USVI, a subsidiary of Silver Airways, LLC, ownership of the certificate and operating assets of Seaborne. This transaction was approved by the US Bankruptcy Court on March 27, 2018, and the transfer of the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity was approved by the Department on April 17, 2018.

Contemporaneous with the closing, the parties executed amendments of their respective Articles of Incorporation, by which SB USVI formally changed its name to "Seaborne Virgin Islands, Inc." and Seaborne changed its name to "SBVI Winddown, Inc." Those Certificates of Amendment were filed with the US Virgin Islands authorities earlier today, and are considered effective upon acceptance. Thus, the entity that is continuing the air carrier operations is, as before, known as "Seaborne Virgin Islands, Inc."

The certificate issued by Order 2018-4-13, approving the transfer, was issued in the name "SB USVI Acquisition, Inc." As of today, however, that is no longer the operating company's name, as explained above. Therefore, we request that the Department re-issue the certificate in the certificate holder's new name, "Seaborne Virgin Islands, Inc."

Counsel: Cozen O'Connor, Mark Atwood, 202-463-2513
