The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace Area, AK by lowering the floor to 1,200 feet MSL within a 35-mile radius of a point just south of Toksook Bay Airport, AK. The floors of Woody Island Low and 1234L Offshore Airspace Areas, AK will be lowered to 1,200 feet MSL within a 72.8-mile radius of Chignik Airport. The purpose of this proposal is to establish controlled airspace to support instrument flight rules operations at the Toksook Bay and Chignik Airports, in Alaska. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has developed new instrument approach procedures for the Toksook Bay and Chignik Airports. New controlled airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet MSL above the surface in international airspace would be created by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient to support the safety of IFR operations at the Toksook Bay and Chignik Airport. 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. Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (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 proposed 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. ICAO Considerations As part of this proposal relates to navigable airspace outside the United VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:13 Dec 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 States, this notice is submitted in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) International Standards and Recommended Practices. The application of International Standards and Recommended Practices by the FAA, Office of System Operations Airspace and AIM, Airspace & Rules, in areas outside the United States domestic airspace, is governed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation. Specifically, the FAA is governed by Article 12 and Annex 11, which pertain to the establishment of necessary air navigational facilities and services to promote the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of civil air traffic. The purpose of Article 12 and Annex 11 is to ensure that civil aircraft operations on international air routes are performed under uniform conditions. The International Standards and Recommended Practices in Annex 11 apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a contracting state, derived from ICAO. Annex 11 provisions apply when air traffic services are provided and a contracting state accepts the responsibility of providing air traffic services over high seas or in airspace of undetermined sovereignty. A contracting state accepting this responsibility may apply the International Standards and Recommended Practices that are consistent with standards and practices utilized in its domestic jurisdiction. In accordance with Article 3 of the Convention, state-owned aircraft are exempt from the Standards and Recommended Practices of Annex 11. The United States is a contracting state to the Convention. Article 3(d) of the Convention provides that participating state aircraft will be operated in international airspace with due regard for the safety of civil aircraft. Since this action involves, in part, the designation of navigable airspace outside the United States, the Administrator is consulting with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense in accordance with the provisions of Executive Order 10854.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend the Norton Sound Low, Woody 
Island Low and 1234L Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska. Specifically, 
this action proposes to modify the Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace 
Area in the vicinity of the Toksook Bay Airport, Toksook Bay, AK, by

Chignik, AK, by lowering the Offshore airspace floors to 1,200 feet MSL 
within a 72.8-mile radius from the Chignik Airport. Additional 
controlled airspace is necessary for the safety of instrument flight 
rules (IFR) operations at the Toksook Bay and Chignik Airports.

procedure.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Norton Sound Low Offshore 
Airspace Area, AK by lowering the floor to 1,200 feet MSL within a 35-
mile radius of a point just south of Toksook Bay Airport, AK. The 
floors of Woody Island Low and 1234L Offshore Airspace Areas, AK will 
be lowered to 1,200 feet MSL within a 72.8-mile radius of Chignik 
Airport. The purpose of this proposal is to establish controlled 
airspace to support instrument flight rules operations at the Toksook 
Bay and Chignik Airports, in Alaska. The FAA Instrument Flight 
Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has developed new 
instrument approach procedures for the Toksook Bay and Chignik 
Airports. New controlled airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet MSL 
above the surface in international airspace would be created by this 
action. The proposed airspace is sufficient to support the safety of 
IFR operations at the Toksook Bay and Chignik Airport.
    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. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (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 proposed 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.

ICAO Considerations

    As part of this proposal relates to navigable airspace outside the 
United States, this notice is submitted in accordance with the 
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) International 
Standards and Recommended Practices.
    The application of International Standards and Recommended 
Practices by the FAA, Office of System Operations Airspace and AIM, 
Airspace & Rules, in areas outside the United States domestic airspace, 
is governed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation. 
Specifically, the FAA is governed by Article 12 and Annex 11, which 
pertain to the establishment of necessary air navigational facilities 
and services to promote the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of 
civil air traffic. The purpose of Article 12 and Annex 11 is to ensure 
that civil aircraft operations on international air routes are 
performed under uniform conditions.
    The International Standards and Recommended Practices in Annex 11 
apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a contracting state, 
derived from ICAO. Annex 11 provisions apply when air traffic services 
are provided and a contracting state accepts the responsibility of 
providing air traffic services over high seas or in airspace of 
undetermined sovereignty. A contracting state accepting this 
responsibility may apply the International Standards and Recommended 
Practices that are consistent with standards and practices utilized in 
its domestic jurisdiction.
    In accordance with Article 3 of the Convention, state-owned 
aircraft are exempt from the Standards and Recommended Practices of 
Annex 11. The United States is a contracting state to the Convention. 
Article 3(d) of the Convention provides that participating state 
aircraft will be operated in international airspace with due regard for 
the safety of civil aircraft. Since this action involves, in part, the 
designation of navigable airspace outside the United States, the 
Administrator is consulting with the Secretary of State and the 
Secretary of Defense in accordance with the provisions of Executive 
Order 10854.
