The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Adoption of the Amendment DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: Federal Aviation Administration The Rule PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, CLASS B, CLASS C, CLASS D, AND CLASS E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIRWAYS; ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS [Docket No. FAA–2005–20557; Airspace Docket No. 05–AAL–10] This revision to 14 CFR part 71 revises Class E airspace at Shishmaref, Alaska. Additional Class E airspace is being created to accommodate aircraft executing two new 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 Shishmaref Airport, Shishmaref, 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 Shishmaref Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

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 create new Class E 
airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Kaltag, 
AK (70 FR 20087). The action was proposed in order to add Class E 
airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing two new 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures and two new departure 
procedures for the Kaltag Airport. The new approaches are (1) Area 
Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 3, 
original; and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 21, original. The new departure 
procedures are (1) IPOXE ONE Departure and (2) KACLE ONE Departure. New 
Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet and 1,200 
feet above the surface in the Kaltag Airport area is established by 
this action. The coordinates for the Kaltag Airport were listed 
incorrectly in the proposal and are corrected in the Final Rule. 
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 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 establishes Class E airspace at 
Kaltag, Alaska. This additional Class E airspace was created to 
accommodate aircraft executing two new SIAP's and two new departure 
procedures 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 Kaltag Airport, Kaltag, 
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 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 Kaltag Airport and represents 
the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable 
airspace.
