The new approaches are (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 1, original; and (2) RNAV (GPS)–A, original. The new departure procedure is the Bettles One Departure. New Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in the Coldfoot Airport area is established by this action. An error in the airspace description was discovered in the proposal. The extension to the 6.7-mile radius of the airport was incorrectly listed as the 042° bearing from the airport. The correct bearing is the 222° bearing from the airport. The error is corrected in the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Monday, April 18, 2005, the FAA proposed to revise part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to add to the Class E 
airspace upward from 700 ft. above the surface at Emmonak, AK (70 FR 
20085). The action was proposed in order to add Class E airspace 
sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing amended SIAPs 
for the Emmonak Airport. The amended approaches are (1) Area Navigation 
(Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway 16, Amendment 1 (Amdt.) 
1; (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 34, Amdt. 1; Very High Frequency Omni-range (VOR) 
RWY 16, Amdt. 1; and VOR RWY 34, Amdt. 1. Additional Class E controlled 
airspace extending upward from 700 ft. above the surface in the Emmonak 
Airport area is established by this action. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No public comments have 
been received, thus, the rule is adopted as proposed.
    The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot 
reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North 
American Datum 83. The Class E airspace areas designated as

[[Page 36491]]

700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA 
Order 7400.9M, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 
30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This revision to 14 CFR part 71 revises Class E airspace at 
Emmonak, Alaska. Additional Class E airspace is being created to 
accommodate aircraft executing amended SIAPs and will be depicted on 
aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this 
rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for IFR operations at 
Emmonak Airport, Emmonak, Alaska.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
It, therefore--(1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on 
a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of 
airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing 
regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable 
airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because 
it creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft 
executing instrument procedures for the Emmonak Airport and represents 
the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable 
airspace.
