Revision of Class E Airspace; Saint (St.) Mary's, AK, 59006-59007 [E6-16507]

Download as PDF 59006 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 194 / Friday, October 6, 2006 / Rules and Regulations cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with RULES 307.2 prescribe additional facilities and conditions that establishments must provide for inspection. Under 9 CFR 307.2, FSIS may require such other facilities and conditions ‘‘as may be found to be essential to efficient conduct of inspection.’’ Because inspection personnel must have highspeed Internet access to efficiently perform their duties, FSIS has determined that, in circumstances where the Agency intends to use satellite technology to establish broadband Internet access, space for the Agency to install a satellite dish on the establishment premises is a condition that is essential to efficient conduct of inspection as provided in 9 CFR 307.2. 9 CFR 381.36(a) states that establishments are required to provide ‘‘[o]ffice space, including, but not being limited to, furnishings, light, heat, and janitor service’’. In addition, 9 CFR 381.36(a) requires that this office space meet the approval of FSIS. Thus, under 9 CFR 381.36(a), the Agency has discretion to identify the facilities and conditions that establishments are required to furnish as part of the office space that they must provide for inspection. FSIS has determined that, in circumstances where the Agency intends to use broadband satellite to establish a high-speed Internet connection, space for FSIS to install a satellite dish on the establishment premises is a reasonable adjunct to the office space that establishments are required to provide under 9 CFR 381.36(a). This action will not impose any costs on establishments where FSIS must install a satellite dish to establish highspeed Internet access. FSIS will pay for all equipment and installation of the satellite service. Because the satellite dish will be installed in close proximity to the government office, the establishment will not lose the use of its physical plant to any cognizable degree. FSIS will provide notice to the specific establishments at which it intends to install a satellite dish before obtaining satellite service. Additional Public Notification Public awareness of all segments of rulemaking and policy development is important. Consequently, in an effort to ensure that the public and in particular minorities, women, and persons with disabilities, are aware of this notice, FSIS will announce it on-line through the FSIS Web page located at http:// www.fsis.usda.gov/ regulations_&_policies/ 2006_Notices_Index/index.asp.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On Monday, July 17, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to revise Class E airspace upward from the surface, and from 700 ft. above the surface at St. Mary’s, AK (71 FR 40447). The action was proposed in order to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing three amended SIAPs and one new SIAP for the St. Mary’s Airport. The amended approaches are (1) the Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 17, Amendment (Amdt) 1; (2) Localizer (LOC)/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) RWY 17, Amdt 3 and (3) Direction Finding (DF) RWY 06, Amdt 1.

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 7400.9P, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, 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 St. Mary’s Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to accommodate aircraft executing three amended SIAPs, and one new 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 St. Mary’s Airport, St. Mary’s, 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, VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:56 Oct 05, 2006 Jkt 211001 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Monday, July 17, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to revise Class E 
airspace upward from the surface, and from 700 ft. above the surface at 
St. Mary's, AK (71 FR 40447). The action was proposed in order to 
create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft while 
executing three amended SIAPs and one new SIAP for the St. Mary's 
Airport. The amended approaches are (1) the Area Navigation (Global 
Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 17, Amendment (Amdt) 1; 
(2) Localizer (LOC)/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) RWY 17, Amdt 3 
and (3) Direction Finding (DF) RWY 06, Amdt 1. The DF is unpublished, 
but is used by Flight Service Station personnel to aid lost pilots. The 
new approach is the RNAV (GPS) RWY 35, Original. Class E controlled 
airspace extending upward

from the surface and 700 ft. above the surface in the St. Mary's 
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 
7400.9P, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 
2006, and effective September 15, 2006, 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 
St. Mary's Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to 
accommodate aircraft executing three amended SIAPs, and one new 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 St. Mary's Airport, St. 
Mary's, 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 St. Mary's Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
