Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 16, 2008 / Notices of low-level obstructions to reduce chart clutter. On April 14, 2008, the IACC amended the technical specifications in IACC 3 that govern the construction and maintenance of WACs to depict only those man-made obstructions equal to or greater than 500 feet AGL. The larger scale Sectional and Terminal Area charts, which contain greater detail, will continue to depict man-made obstructions to the maximum extent allowed by IACC 2. The first WAC published under the new specifications will be on December 18, 2008. In keeping with U.S. obligations under the Convention on International Civil Aviation, it is FAA policy to comply with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards and Recommended Practices to the maximum extent practicable. The FAA reviewed the corresponding ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices set forth in ICAO Annex 4. Because the FAA shall continue to use the 300 foot obstruction height in charts with a scale of 1:500,000, it is permissible to use the new WAC obstacle height of 500 feet while still meeting the intent of paragraph 16.9.3.1 of ICAO Annex 4. Nevertheless, the FAA will identify the following difference: On the WAC series, only obstacles 500 feet or greater AOL will be depicted versus the ICAO SARP of depicting obstacles 300 feet or greater AGL. Issued in Washington, DC, on July 3, 2008. Richard V. Powell, Manager, Aeronautical Information Services. [FR Doc.
