SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On Tuesday, October 25, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Tok Junction, AK (70 FR 61587). The action was proposed in order to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing two new SIAPs for the Tok Junction Airport. The new approaches are (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 07, original; (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 25, original. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface in the Tok Junction 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 PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 75393 comments have been received; thus the rule is adopted as proposed. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking omitted an exemption to the airspace over Canada. It has been corrected in this document. 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 700/1,200 ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, 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 amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at Tok Junction, Alaska. This Class E airspace is established 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 Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at Tok Junction Airport, Tok, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Tuesday, October 25, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E 
airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Tok 
Junction, AK (70 FR 61587). The action was proposed in order to create 
Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing 
two new SIAPs for the Tok Junction Airport. The new approaches are (1) 
Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 
07, original; (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 25, original. Class E controlled 
airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface 
in the Tok Junction 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 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking omitted an exemption to the 
airspace over Canada. It has been corrected in this document.
    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 700/1,200 
ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9N, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 
2005, and effective September 15, 2005, 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 amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at 
Tok Junction, Alaska. This Class E airspace is established 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 Instrument Flight 
Rule (IFR) operations at Tok Junction Airport, Tok, 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 Tok Junction Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
