The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR Part 71), which would create new Class E airspace at Kokhanok Airport, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to create Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Kokhanok Airport, AK. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has developed two new SIAPs and a new DP for the Kokhanok Airport. The new approaches (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 06, Original; and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 24, Original. The DP is unnamed and will be published in the front of the Flight Information Publication: U.S. Terminal Procedures Alaska. New Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface within the Kokhanok Airport area would be established by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the new instrument procedures at the Kokhanok Airport. The area would 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 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in 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 designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. 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. 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:43 Jul 14, 2006 Jkt 208001 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 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. 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 proposes to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument procedures at Kokhanok Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR Part 71), which would create new Class E airspace 
at Kokhanok Airport, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to 
create Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the 
surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Kokhanok 
Airport, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has developed two new SIAPs and a new DP for the Kokhanok 
Airport. The new approaches (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning 
System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 06, Original; and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 
24, Original. The DP is unnamed and will be published in the front of 
the Flight Information Publication: U.S. Terminal Procedures Alaska. 
New Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 
ft. above the surface within the Kokhanok Airport area would be 
established by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size 
to contain aircraft executing the new instrument procedures at the 
Kokhanok Airport.
    The area would 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 700/1200 
foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in 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 designations listed in 
this document would be published subsequently in the Order.
    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. 
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 is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this 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.
    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,
