Revision of Class E Airspace; Huslia, AK, 35151-35152 [06-5514]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 117 / Monday, June 19, 2006 / Rules and Regulations 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 follows the U.S. Army’s actions in renaming Wainwright AAF to Ladd AAF and thereby changes the Class E airspace description in FAA Order 7400.9D and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

The action was proposed in order to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing one new and two amended SIAPs for the Huslia Airport. The new approach is the Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range (VOR)/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) RWY 03.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Wednesday, April 5, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to revise Class E 
airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Huslia, 
AK (71 FR 17039). The action was proposed in order to create Class E 
airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing one new 
and two amended SIAPs for the Huslia Airport. The new approach is the 
Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range (VOR)/Distance Measuring 
Equipment (DME) RWY 03. The amended approaches are (1) Area Navigation 
(Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) RWY 03, Amendment (Amdt.) One 
and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 21, Amdt. One. Class E controlled airspace 
extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface in the 
Huslia Airport area is revised 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. 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 revises Class E airspace at the 
Huslia Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to accommodate 
aircraft executing one new and two revised 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 Huslia Airport, 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 Huslia Airport and represents 
the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable 
airspace.
