56 APPENDIX E--Abbreviations and Definitions AIP--Airport Improvement Program. Airport Sponsor--"The airport sponsor is the entity that is legally, financially, and otherwise able to as- sume and carry out the certifications, representations, warranties, assurances, covenants, and other obligations required of sponsors, which are contained in the AIP grant agreement and property conveyances." FAA Advi- sory Circular 150/5190-6, Exclusive Rights at Federally-Obligated Airports, App. 1 (2007). Exclusive Right--"A power, privilege, or other right excluding or debarring another from enjoying or exer- cising a like power, privilege, or right. An exclusive right can be conferred either by express agreement, by the imposition of unreasonable standards or requirements, or by any other means. Such a right conferred on one or more parties, but excluding others from enjoying or exercising a similar right or rights, would be an exclusive right." FAA Advisory Circular 150/5190-6, App. 1. FAA--Federal Aviation Administration. Fixed Base Operator or FBO--"A business granted the right by the airport sponsor to operate on an air- port and provide aeronautical services such as fueling, hangaring, tie-down and parking, aircraft rental, aircraft maintenance, and flight instruction." FAA Advisory Circular 150-5190-6, App. 1. Minimum Standards--"The qualifications or criteria that may be established by an airport owner as the minimum requirements that must be met by businesses engaged in on-airport aeronautical activities for the right to conduct those activities." FAA Order 5190.6B, Airport Compliance Manual, App. Z (2009). Self-Fueling and Self-Service--"Self-fueling means the fueling or servicing of an aircraft (i.e., changing the oil, washing) by the owner of the aircraft with his or her own employees and using his or her own equipment. Self-fueling and other self-services cannot be contracted out to another party. Self-fueling implies using fuel obtained by the aircraft owner from the source of his or her preference. As one of many self-service activities that can be conducted by the aircraft owner or operator by his or her own employees using his or her own equipment, self-fueling differs from using a self-service fueling pump made available by the airport, an FBO, or an aeronautical service provider. The use of a self-service pump is a commercial activity and is not considered self-fueling as defined here. In addition to self-fueling, other self-service activities that can be performed by the aircraft owner with his or her own employees includes activities such as maintaining, repairing, cleaning, and otherwise providing service to an aircraft, provided the service is performed by the aircraft owner or his/her

Specialized Aviation Service Operator or SASO--"SASOs are sometimes known as single-service pro- viders and special FBOs performing less than full services. These types of companies differ from a full service FBO in that they typically offer only a specialized aeronautical service such as aircraft sales, flight training, aircraft maintenance, and avionics services, for example." FAA Advisory Circular 150-5190-6, App. 1. Sponsor Assurances or Grant Assurances--"A Federal grant assurance is a provision within a Federal grant agreement to which the recipient of Federal airport development assistance has agreed to comply in con- sideration of the assistance provided."
