Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Port Heiden, AK, 12579-12581 [07-1207]

Download as PDF 12579 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 51 / Friday, March 16, 2007 / Proposed Rules erjones on PRODPC74 with PROPOSALS Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 71), which would revise the Class E airspace at Kodiak Airport, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to revise Class E airspace upward from the surface and from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Kodiak Airport, AK. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has amended four SIAPs, two of which are Special procedures. A SID and a DP are also being amended for the Kodiak Airport. The amended approaches are (1) the Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range (VOR) Z Runway (RWY) 25, Amendment (Amdt) 1, Special (2) Instrument Landing System (ILS) or Localizer (LOC)/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) ZRWY 25, Amdt 1, Special, (3) VOR Y RWY 25, Amdt 1 and (4) ILS or LOC/DME Y RWY 25, Amdt 1. The SID is the Kodiak 5. DP’s are unnamed and are published in the front of the U.S. Terminal Procedures for Alaska. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from the surface and from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface within the Kodiak Airport area would be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the Kodiak 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 extensions to Class D surface areas are published in paragraph 6004 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 areas designated as 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in FAA Order 7400.9P, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:24 Mar 15, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 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 Kodiak Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, CLASS B, CLASS C, CLASS D, AND CLASS E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIRWAYS; ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

Advisory Circular No. 11-2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution 
System, which describes the application procedure.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR part 71), which would revise the Class E airspace 
at Port Heiden Airport, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to 
revise Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the 
surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Port 
Heiden Airport, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has drafted two new SIAPs and amended two others. A DP is also 
being amended for the Port Heiden Airport. The new approaches are (1) 
Area Navigation (Global Positioning System) (RNAV (GPS)) Runway (RWY) 
05, Original and (2) RNAV (GPS) RWY 13, Original. The amended 
approaches are (1) the Non-directional Beacon (NDB)/Distance Measuring 
Equipment (DME) RWY 05, Amendment (Amdt) 3 and (2) NDB/DME RWY 13, Amdt 
3. DP's are unnamed and are published in the front of the U.S. Terminal 
Procedures for Alaska. Class E controlled airspace extending upward 
from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface within the Port Heiden 
Airport area would be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is 
sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument 
procedures at the Port Heiden 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 
7400.9P, 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 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, 
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

[[Page 12581]]

airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument 
procedures at Port Heiden Airport and represents the FAA's continuing 
effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.
