ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This final rule will establish Class E airspace at Chehalis, WA. This additional Class E airspace is necessary to accommodate the new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at ChehalisCentralia Airport. This change will improve the safety of Instrument Flight rules (IFR) aircraft executing the new RNAV GPS SIAP at Chehalis-Centralia Airport, Chelialis, WA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On May 25, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal regulations part 71 (CFR part 71) by establishing Class E airspace at Chehalis, WA, (70 FR 30034). The proposed action would provide additional controlled airspace to accommodate the new RNAV GPS SIAP at the Chehalis-Centralia Airport. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rule making proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9M dated august 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that order. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at Chehalis, WA, by providing additional controlled airspace for aircraft executing the new RNAV GPS SIAP at the ChelialisCentralia Airport. This additional VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:30 Sep 12, 2005 Jkt 205001 controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface is necessary for the containment and safety of IFR aircraft executing this SIAP procedure and transitioning to/from the en route environment. 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 the regulations 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 11054, February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Friday, June 24, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to amend Class E airspace 
upward from 700 ft. above the surface at Prospect Creek, AK (70 FR 
36543). The action was proposed in order to create Class E airspace 
sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing SIAPs at the 
Prospect Creek Airport. Revised Class E controlled airspace extending 
upward from 700 ft. above the surface in the Prospect Creek 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.

[[Page 53921]]

The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American 
Datum 83. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1200 ft. 
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 Proposed Rulemaking 
document included an error incorrectly listing the airport coordinates. 
This Final Rule also corrects the airport coordinates.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 revises Class E airspace at 
Prospect Creek, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to accommodate 
aircraft executing SIAPs at the airport and will be depicted on 
aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this 
rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight 
Rule (IFR) operations at Prospect Creek Airport, Prospect Creek, 
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 Prospect Creek Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
