The Class D airspace and Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 5000 and 6005 respectively, 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 D and E airspace designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in the PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Order. Additionally, the present exclusionary clause listed in the Class E5 description is removed. The exclusionary language is redundant and therefore, unnecessary. The Direct Final Rule Procedure The FAA anticipates that this regulation will not result in adverse or negative comment and therefore, is issuing it as a direct final rule. Previous actions of this nature have not been controversial and have not resulted in adverse comments or objections. Unless a written adverse or negative comment, or written notice of intent to submit an adverse or negative comment is received within the comment period, the regulation will become effective on the date specified above. After the close of the comment period, the FAA will publish a document in the Federal Register indicating that no adverse or negative comments were received and confirming the date on which the final rule will become effective. If the FAA does receive, within the comment period, an adverse or negative comment, or written notice of intent to submit such a comment, a document withdrawing the direct final rule will be published in the Federal Register, and a notice of proposed rulemaking may be published with a new comment period. Comments Invited Interested parties are invited to participate in this rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, environmental, and energy-related aspects of the proposal.

Commenters wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments on this notice must submit with those comments a self-addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: ‘‘Comments to Docket No. FAA–2006–24813/Airspace Docket No. 06-AAL–16.’’ The postcard will be date/time stamped and returned to the commenter. Agency Findings The regulations adopted herein will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, it is determined that this final rule does not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. 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 ‘‘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, 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 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 7400.9N and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

[Docket No. FAA-2006-24813; Airspace Docket No. 06-AAL-16]


Modification of Legal Description of Class D and E Airspace; 
Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright Army Airfield, AK

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Direct final rule Correction; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Army will soon be changing the name of Fort (Ft.) 
Wainwright Army Airfield (AAF) to Ladd AAF. This action amends the 
airport name accordingly for each of the Class D and Class E airspace 
descriptions in FAA Order 7400.9N. This action also amends an altitude 
omission which currently does not exist in the FAA Order 7400.9N. This 
action also redefines the airspace description to account for recent 
updates to the airfield coordinates.

DATES: This direct final rule is effective on 0901 UTC, November 23, 
2006. Comments for inclusion in the Rules Docket must be received on or 
before August 16, 2006.

ADDRESSES: Send comments on this proposal to the Docket Management

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The coordinates for this airspace docket are 
based on North American Datum 83. The Class D airspace and Class E 
airspace areas designated as 700/1200 foot transition areas are 
published in paragraph 5000 and 6005 respectively, 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 D and E airspace designations 
listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. 
Additionally, the present exclusionary clause listed in the Class E5 
description is removed. The exclusionary language is redundant and 
therefore, unnecessary.

The Direct Final Rule Procedure

    The FAA anticipates that this regulation will not result in adverse 
or negative comment and therefore, is issuing it as a direct final 
rule. Previous actions of this nature have not been controversial and 
have not resulted in adverse comments or objections. Unless a written 
adverse or negative comment, or written notice of intent to submit an 
adverse or negative comment is received within the comment period, the 
regulation will become effective on the date specified above. After the 
close of the comment period, the FAA will publish a document in the 
Federal Register indicating that no adverse or negative comments were 
received and confirming the date on which the final rule will become 
effective. If the FAA does receive, within the comment period, an 
adverse or negative comment, or written notice of intent to submit such 
a comment, a document withdrawing the direct final rule will be 
published in the Federal Register, and a notice of proposed rulemaking 
may be published with a new comment period.

Comments Invited

    Interested parties are invited to participate in this rulemaking by 
submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. 
Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and 
suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned 
regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are specifically invited 
on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, environmental, and 
energy-related aspects of the proposal. Communications should identify

above. Commenters wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their 
comments on this notice must submit with those comments a self-
addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: 
``Comments to Docket No. FAA-2006-24813/Airspace Docket No. 06-AAL-
16.'' The postcard will be date/time stamped and returned to the 
commenter.

Agency Findings

    The regulations adopted herein will not have a substantial direct 
effect on the States, on the relationship between the national 
Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, it 
is determined that this final rule does not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132.
    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 ``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, 
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 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 
7400.9N and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.
