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. 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.

Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace.

The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 71), by establishing Class E airspace at Nikolai, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to establish new Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) above the surface within a 6.4 nautical mile (NM) radius of the Nikolai Airport. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has developed two SIAPs for the Nikolai Airport. The two approaches are: (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 04, original, and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 20, original. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft above the surface is needed to provide air traffic control services and would be established by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures for the Nikolai Airport. The area would 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 in 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 designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:12 Sep 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR part 71), by establishing Class E airspace at 
Nikolai, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to establish new 
Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) above the surface within a 
6.4 nautical mile (NM) radius of the Nikolai Airport.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has developed two SIAPs for the Nikolai Airport. The two 
approaches are: (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV 
(GPS)) Runway (RWY) 04, original, and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 20, original. 
Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft above the 
surface is needed to provide air traffic control services and would be 
established by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient to 
contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures for the Nikolai 
Airport.
    The area would 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 in 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 designations listed in 
this document would be published subsequently in the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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, when promulgated, 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 proposes to establish Class E airspace sufficient to contain 
aircraft executing instrument procedures at Nikolai Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently manage 
the navigable airspace.
