I would like to update you on the Essential Air Service situation at Macon, Georgia and give youan opportunity to submit any comments if you wish. As you know, on April 26, 2012, PacificWings L.L.C., d/b/a Georgia Skies, filed a 90-day notice
of
its intent to suspend its subsidy-freeservice at Macon. In response, the Department issued Order 2012-5-25, on May 24, 2012, tosolicit proposals from all interested air carriers to provide service at Macon. In response to thatOrder, we received two proposals.Copies
of
the proposals are attached and may be accessed online through the Department'sDockets Management System
at:
http://www.regulations.gov/ by entering "DOT-OST-2007-28671" in the "Enter Keyword or ID" field, so I will only briefly summarize the proposals here.Sun Air Express, LLC d/b/a Sun Air International, proposes to offer four daily round trips perweekday, and two daily round trips on Saturday and two on Sunday (24 a
w~ek)
between Maconand Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport utilizing a nine-passenger twin-engine PiperChieftain aircraft, for an annual subsidy
of
$1,946,266. The Department recently found Sun Airfit to conduct scheduled passenger operations
as
a commuter air carrier, and it
is
cunentlyworking with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to finalize that operating authority.American Aviation Group, Inc. d/b/a Twin Air Calypso proposes to offer six daily round trips(42 a week) between Macon and Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport utilizing an eightpassenger single-engine Cessna Caravan aircraft, for an annual subsidy
of
$1,555,825. Twin AirCalypso cmTently has an application pending before the Department for authority to conductscheduled passenger operations
as
a commuter air carrier. That application can be accessedonline through the Department's Dockets Management System by entering "DOT-OST-2011-0143" in the "Enter Keyword or ID" field.Also, I wish to remind you that the FAA Modernization and Reform Act
of
2012 (Public Law
No:
112-95) amended 49 U.S.C. §41731(a)(l)(B) changed the definition
of
"eligible place" forthe purpose
of
receiving EAS. The amendment states that to be eligible, a community mustmaintain an average
