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 the Roland Norton Memorial Airport, in Selawik, 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 Roland Norton Memorial Airport, AK. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has amended two SIAPs and developed four SIAPs along with a DP for the Roland Norton Memorial Airport. The amended approaches are (1) the Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range (VOR) Runway (RWY) 04, Amendment (Amdt) 1 and (2) the VOR RWY 22, Amdt 1. The new approaches are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) RWY 04, Original (Orig), (2) the RNAV (GPS) RWY 27, 0rig, (3) the RNAV (GPS) Y RWY 22, Orig, and (4) the RNAV (GPS) Z RWY 22, Orig. Textual DP’s are unnamed and are published in the front of the U.S. Terminal Procedures for Alaska. Class E controlled airspace VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Oct 15, 2007 Jkt 214001 extending upward, from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface, in the Roland Norton Memorial Airport area would be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the Roland Norton Memorial Airport, Selawik, AK. 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 7400.9R, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, 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.

Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace.

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 the Chevak Airport, in Chevak, 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 Chevak Airport, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has developed two new SIAPs for the Chevak Airport. The new 
approaches are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System 
(GPS) RWY 02, Original (Orig) and (2) the RNAV (GPS) RWY 20, 0rig. 
Class E controlled airspace extending upward, from 700 ft. and 1,200 
ft. above the surface, in the Chevak Airport area would be revised by 
this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size to contain 
aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the Chevak Airport, 
Chevak, AK.
    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 
7400.9R, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 15, 
2007, and effective September 15, 2007, 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
