Download as PDF 32824 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 109 / Wednesday, June 7, 2006 / Rules and Regulations under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Rule sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES additional controlled airspace ancillary to a surface area to protect instrument operations for the primary airport, without imposing additional communications burdens on airspace users. This action is necessary at Vandenberg AFB to provide controlled airspace for Category E aircraft conducting circling maneuvers in conjunction with published Standard Instrument Procedures. Generally, Category E aircraft are very large and/or high performance. These aircraft require additional airspace when conducting circling maneuvers. On March 24, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise Class E airspace at Vandenberg AFB, CA (71 FR 14830). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received, therefore, this revision is the same as that proposed in the notice. Class E5 airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E5 airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace at Vandenberg AFB, CA. The FAA is taking this action to provide additional controlled airspace for Category E aircraft conducting circling maneuvers in conjunction with published Standard Instrument Procedures. This airspace change places aircraft in controlled airspace from final descent to runway and protects Category E aircraft while conducting a circling approach to land. 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 Department of Transportation 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:09 Jun 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 6, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to modify the Control 1487L offshore airspace area in Alaska (71 FR 17389). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.

The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Control 1487L offshore airspace area, AK, by lowering the floor from 5,500 feet mean sea level (MSL) to as low as 700 feet MSL in the vicinity VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:09 Jun 06, 2006 Jkt 208001 PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 32825 of the Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport, Merle K. Mudhole Smith Airport and Middleton Island Airport. This action will provide offshore airspace in the vicinity of Merle K. Mudhole Smith Airport, AK, by lowering the offshore airspace floor from 5,500 feet MSL to 1,200 feet MSL. Additionally, this action will re-designate the existing Class E airspace at Anchorage, AK, by extending Control 1487L airspace area westward to the 12-mile shoreline limit within the 149.5-mile radius associated with Anchorage, AK, Class E airspace, and clarify offshore airspace descriptions within already established domestic Class E airspace at Anchorage and Cordova. This action will provide additional controlled airspace for the safety of aircraft executing IFR operations at the Sitka Rocky Gutierrez, Merle K. Mudhole Smith, and Middleton Island Airports, and will correctly designate the existing Class E airspace for Anchorage and Cordova, AK. 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 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.

ICAO Considerations As part of this rule relates to navigable airspace outside the United States, the notice of this action 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.
