When using this test to show compliance with the HIRF requirements, no credit is given for signal attenuation due to installation. Data used for engine certification may be used, when appropriate, for airplane certification. 2. Electronic Engine Control System. The installation of the electronic engine control system must comply with the requirements of § 23.1309(a) through (e) at Amendment 23–46. The intent of this requirement is not to re-evaluate the inherent hardware reliability of the control itself, but rather determine the effects, including environmental effects addressed in § 23.1309(e), on the airplane systems and engine control system when installing the control on the airplane. When appropriate, engine certification data may be used when showing compliance with this requirement. Issued in Kansas City, Missouri on July 25, 2005. James E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On Wednesday June 22, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to establish a Class E surface area and to modify other Class E airspace at Storm Lake, IA (70 FR 19027). The proposal was to establish a Class E surface area at Storm Lake, IA. It was also to modify the Class E5 airspace area to bring it into compliance with FAA directives. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were received. The Rule This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) establishes Class E airspace designated as a surface area for an airport at Storm Lake, IA. Controlled airspace extending upward from the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing instrument approach procedures to Storm Lake Municipal Airport. Weather observations will be provided by an Automatic Weather Observing/Reporting System (AWOS) and communications will be direct with Fort Dodge Automated Flight Service Station. This rule also revises the Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Storm Lake, IA. An examination of this Class E airspace area for Storm Lake, IA revealed noncompliance with FAA directives. This corrects identified discrepancies by decreasing the width of the southeast extension from 2.6 miles to 2.5 miles each side of the 167° bearing from Storm Lake NDB and creating an extension within 2.5 miles each side of the 357° bearing from the Storm Lake NDB extending from the 6.6mile radius of the airport to 7 miles north of the airport, defining airspace of appropriate dimensions to protect aircraft departing and executing instrument approach procedures to Storm Lake Municipal Airport and bringing the airspace area into compliance with FAA directives. Both PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 44465 areas will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. Class E airspace areas designated as surface areas are published in Paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9M, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 15, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of the same Order. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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. Therefore, this regulation—(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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority since it contains aircraft executing instrument approach procedures to Storm Lake Municipal Airport.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Wednesday June 22, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 
71 to establish a Class E surface area and to modify other Class E 
airspace at Storm Lake, IA (70 FR 19027). The proposal was to establish 
a Class E surface area at Storm Lake, IA. It was also to modify the 
Class E5 airspace area to bring it into compliance with FAA directives. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. 
No comments objecting to the proposal were received.

The Rule

    This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 
CFR Part 71) establishes Class E airspace designated as a surface area 
for an airport at Storm Lake, IA. Controlled airspace extending upward 
from the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing 
instrument approach procedures to Storm Lake Municipal Airport. Weather 
observations will be provided by an Automatic Weather Observing/
Reporting System (AWOS) and communications will be direct with Fort 
Dodge Automated Flight Service Station.
    This rule also revises the Class E airspace area extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at Storm Lake, IA. An examination of 
this Class E airspace area for Storm Lake, IA revealed noncompliance 
with FAA directives. This corrects identified discrepancies by 
decreasing the width of the southeast extension from 2.6 miles to 2.5 
miles each side of the 167[deg] bearing from Storm Lake NDB and 
creating an extension within 2.5 miles each side of the 357[deg] 
bearing from the Storm Lake NDB extending from the 6.6-mile radius of 
the airport to 7 miles north of the airport, defining airspace of 
appropriate dimensions to protect aircraft departing and executing 
instrument approach procedures to Storm Lake Municipal Airport and 
bringing the airspace area into compliance with FAA directives. Both 
areas will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
    Class E airspace areas designated as surface areas are published in 
Paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9M, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 15, 
2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. Class E 
airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface 
of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of the same Order. The 
Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.
    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. 
Therefore, this regulation--(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, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
since it contains aircraft executing instrument approach procedures to 
Storm Lake Municipal Airport.
