                              [Order No. 528]

   Resolution and Order Approving With Restriction the Application of the
  Canaveral Port Authority for a Special-Purpose Subzone at the Machinery
 Components Manufacturing Facility of Flite Technology, Inc., in Cocoa, FL

                           Friday, July 26, 1991

Proceedings of the Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Washington, DC

Resolution and Order

Pursuant to the authority granted in the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18,
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Resolution and Order: 

The Board, having considered the matter, hereby orders:

After consideration of the application of the Canaveral Port Authority,
grantee of FTZ 136, filed with the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) on 
June 19, 1990, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the machinery 
components manufacturing plant or Flite Technology, Inc., located in Cocoa, 
Florida, the Board, finding that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade Zones 
Act, as amended, and the FTZ Board's regulations would be satisfied, and 
that the proposal would be in the public interest if full zone benefits 
were approved for export manufacturing only, approves the application 
subject to the restriction requiring Flite Technology to elect privileged-
foreign status on all merchandise admitted to the subzone.

The Secretary of Commerce, as Chairman and Executive Officer of the Board,
is hereby authorized to issue a grant of authority and appropriate Board 

Grant of Authority To Establish a Foreign-Trade Subzone in Cocoa, Florida

Whereas, By an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment, operation, and maintenance of foreign-trade zones in 
ports of entry of the United States, to expedite and encourage foreign 
commerce, and for other purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the 
Act), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the Board) is authorized and empowered 
to grant to corporations the privilege of establishing, operating, and 
maintaining foreign-trade zones in or adjacent to ports of entry under the 
jurisdiction of the United States;

Whereas, The Board's regulations (15 CFR 400.304) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved, and where a significant public 
benefit will result;

Whereas, The Canaveral Port Authority, Grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 
136, has made application (filed June 19, 1990, FTZ Docket 23-90, 55 FR 
26224, 06- 27-90) in due and proper form to the Board for authority to 
establish a special-purpose subzone at the Flite Technology, Inc., plant in 
Cocoa, Florida;

Whereas, Notice of said application has been given and published, and full
opportunity has been afforded all interested parties to be heard; and,

Whereas, The Board has found that the requirements of the Act and the
Board's regulations would be satisfied and that the proposal would be in
the public interest if approval were given subject to the restriction in
the resolution accompanying this action;

Now, therefore, In accordance with the application filed June 19, 1990, the
Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone at the Flite
Technology, Inc., plant in Cocoa, Florida, designated on the records of the
Board as Foreign-Trade Subzone 136A, at the location mentioned above and
more particularly described on the maps and drawings accompanying the
application, said grant of authority being subject to the provisions and
restrictions of the Act and the regulations issued thereunder, to the
restriction in the resolution accompanying this action, and also to the
following express conditions and limitations:

Activation of the subzone shall be commenced within a reasonable time from
the date of issuance of the grant, and prior thereto, any necessary permits
shall be obtained from Federal, State, and municipal authorities.

Officers and employees of the United States shall have free and
unrestricted access to and throughout the foreign-trade subzone in the
performance of their official duties.

The grant shall not be construed to relieve responsible parties from
liability for injury or damage to the person or property of others
occasioned by the construction, operation, or maintenance of said subzone,
and in no event shall the United States be liable therefor.

The grant is further subject to settlement locally by the District Director
of Customs and the Army District Engineer with the Grantee regarding
compliance with their respective requirements for the protection of the
revenue of the United States and the installation of suitable facilities.

In witness whereof, The Foreign-Trade Zones Board has caused its name to be 
signed and its seal to be affixed hereto by its Chairman and Executive 
Officer or his delegate at Washington, DC, this 19th day of July 1991, 
pursuant to Order of the Board.


John J. Da Ponte, Jr.,

Executive Secretary.

Eric I. Garfinkel,

Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration, Chairman,
