ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES SUMMARY: This action modifies the Class E airspace area at Half Moon Bay, CA. The establishment of an Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Z Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) to Runway (RWY) 30 to Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA has made this action necessary. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing this RNAV (GPS) ZIAP to RWY 30 at Half Moon Bay Airport. The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules operations at Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA EFFECTIVE DATE: 0901 UTC September 28, 2006. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On June 14, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace area at Half Moon Bay, CA (06 FR 34296). Additional controlled airspace extending upward VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:49 Aug 22, 2006 Jkt 208001 from 700 feet or more above the surface is needed to contain aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) Z IAP RWY 30 to Half Moon Bay Airport. This action will provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) Z IAP RWY 30 to Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments to the proposal were received. Class E airspace designations for airspace extending from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth 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 E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies the Class E airspace area at Half Moon Bay, CA. The establishment of a RNAV (GPS) Z IAP RWY 30 to Half Moon Bay Airport has made this action necessary. The effect of this action will provide adequate airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) Z IAP RWY 30 to Half Moon Bay Airport, Half Moon Bay, CA. 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 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 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Monday, June 19, 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 Barter 
Island, AK (71 FR 35225). The action was proposed in order to create 
Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing 
two new and one amended SIAP for the Barter Island Airport. The new 
approaches are (1) Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV 
(GPS)) RWY 07, Original; and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 25, Original. The 
amended approach is the Non Directional Beacon (NDB) RWY 07, Amendment 
1. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 
ft. above the surface in the Barter Island 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 
Barter Island Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to 
accommodate aircraft executing two new SIAPs and one amended SIAP, 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 Barter Island 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 Barter Island Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
