Proposed Modification of the Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; AK, 44201-44204 [E8-17384]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 147 / Wednesday, July 30, 2008 / Proposed Rules Paperwork Reduction Act NCUA has determined that the proposed rule would not increase paperwork requirements under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and regulations of the Office of Management and Budget. Control number 3133–0154 has been issued for part 702 and control number 3133–0129 has been issued for part 704. Both will be displayed in the table at 12 CFR part 795. Executive Order 13132 Executive Order 13132 encourages independent regulatory agencies to consider the impact of their regulatory actions on State and local interests. NCUA, an independent regulatory agency as defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(5), voluntarily adheres to the fundamental federalism principles addressed by the executive order. This proposed rule would apply to all federally-insured credit unions, including State-chartered credit unions, and thus may raise some federalism implications. However, the proposal is unlikely to have a direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government because it facilitates, rather than diminishes, the ability of state-chartered credit unions to combine with other credit unions. Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 1999 NCUA has determined that the proposed rule will not affect family well-being within the meaning of section 654 of the Treasury and General Appropriations Act, 1999, Public Law 105–277, 112 Stat. 2681 (1998).

Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, for a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska. The Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace Area would be modified by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 1,200 feet mean sea level (MSL) at the following airports: Within 78 miles of Buckland; within 73 miles of Chevak; within 74 miles of Kotzebue; within 73 miles of Noatak; within 74 miles of Selawik; and within 73 miles of Port Heiden. Also, the Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace area would be lowered to 700 feet MSL at Port Heiden Airport. The Woody Island Low Offshore Airspace Area would be modified in the vicinity of the Kodiak, Middleton Island and Port Heiden Airports by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 1,200 feet MSL within 73 miles of Kodiak and Port Heiden Airports, and within 42 miles of the Middleton Island Airport. Additionally, the Control 1234L Offshore Airspace area would be modified by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 700 feet above the surface within 6.3 miles, and 1,200 feet PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 above the surface within 45 miles, of Nikolski Airport; and within 1,200 feet above the surface within 73 miles of Port Heiden Airport. Finally, this action would modify the Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Area by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 1,200 feet MSL within 73 miles of Kodiak Airport, and corrects an error in one coordinate adjoining the Woody Island Low Control Area. This correction will align the adjoining airspaces. Offshore airspace areas are published in paragraph 6007 of FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The offshore airspace areas listed in this document will 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. Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (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 proposed 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 I, 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 I, section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it modifies offshore airspace areas in Alaska. ICAO Considerations As part of this proposal relates to navigable airspace outside the United States, this notice is submitted in accordance with the International Civil E:\FR\FM\30JYP1.SGM 30JYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 147 / Wednesday, July 30, 2008 / Proposed Rules Aviation Organization (ICAO) International Standards and Recommended Practices. The application of International Standards and Recommended Practices by the FAA, Office of System Operations Airspace and AIM, Airspace & Rules, in areas outside the United States domestic airspace, is governed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation. Specifically, the FAA is governed by Article 12 and Annex 11, which pertain to the establishment of necessary air navigational facilities and services to promote the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of civil air traffic. The purpose of Article 12 and Annex 11 is to ensure that civil aircraft operations on international air routes are performed under uniform conditions. The International Standards and Recommended Practices in Annex 11 apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a contracting state, derived from ICAO. Annex 11 provisions apply when air traffic services are provided and a contracting state accepts the responsibility of providing air traffic services over high seas or in airspace of undetermined sovereignty. A contracting state accepting this responsibility may apply the International Standards and Recommended Practices that are consistent with standards and practices utilized in its domestic jurisdiction. In accordance with Article 3 of the Convention, state-owned aircraft are exempt from the Standards and Recommended Practices of Annex 11. The United States is a contracting state to the Convention. Article 3(d) of the Convention provides that participating state aircraft will be operated in international airspace with due regard for the safety of civil aircraft. Since this action involves, in part, the designation of navigable airspace outside the United States, the Administrator is consulting with the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense in accordance with the provisions of Executive Order 10854.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Norton Sound Low, Woody 
Island Low, Control 1234L and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas in 
Alaska.
    The Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace Area would be modified by 
lowering the offshore airspace floor to 1,200 feet mean sea level (MSL) 
at the following airports: Within 78 miles of Buckland; within 73 miles 
of Chevak; within 74 miles of Kotzebue; within 73 miles of Noatak; 
within 74 miles of Selawik; and within 73 miles of Port Heiden. Also, 
the Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace area would be lowered to 700 
feet MSL at Port Heiden Airport.
    The Woody Island Low Offshore Airspace Area would be modified in 
the vicinity of the Kodiak, Middleton Island and Port Heiden Airports 
by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 1,200 feet MSL within 73 
miles of Kodiak and Port Heiden Airports, and within 42 miles of the 
Middleton Island Airport.
    Additionally, the Control 1234L Offshore Airspace area would be 
modified by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 700 feet above the 
surface within 6.3 miles, and 1,200 feet above the surface within 45 
miles, of Nikolski Airport; and within 1,200 feet above the surface 
within 73 miles of Port Heiden Airport.
    Finally, this action would modify the Control 1487L Offshore 
Airspace Area by lowering the offshore airspace floor to 1,200 feet MSL 
within 73 miles of Kodiak Airport, and corrects an error in one 
coordinate adjoining the Woody Island Low Control Area. This correction 
will align the adjoining airspaces.
    Offshore airspace areas are published in paragraph 6007 of FAA 
Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 
2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The offshore 
airspace areas listed in this document will 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. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (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 proposed 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 I, 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 I, section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it modifies offshore airspace areas in Alaska.

ICAO Considerations

    As part of this proposal relates to navigable airspace outside the 
United States, this notice is submitted in accordance with the 
International Civil

[[Page 44203]]

Aviation Organization (ICAO) International Standards and Recommended 
Practices.
    The application of International Standards and Recommended 
Practices by the FAA, Office of System Operations Airspace and AIM, 
Airspace & Rules, in areas outside the United States domestic airspace, 
is governed by the Convention on International Civil Aviation. 
Specifically, the FAA is governed by Article 12 and Annex 11, which 
pertain to the establishment of necessary air navigational facilities 
and services to promote the safe, orderly, and expeditious flow of 
civil air traffic. The purpose of Article 12 and Annex 11 is to ensure 
that civil aircraft operations on international air routes are 
performed under uniform conditions.
    The International Standards and Recommended Practices in Annex 11 
apply to airspace under the jurisdiction of a contracting state, 
derived from ICAO. Annex 11 provisions apply when air traffic services 
are provided and a contracting state accepts the responsibility of 
providing air traffic services over high seas or in airspace of 
undetermined sovereignty. A contracting state accepting this 
responsibility may apply the International Standards and Recommended 
Practices that are consistent with standards and practices utilized in 
its domestic jurisdiction.
    In accordance with Article 3 of the Convention, state-owned 
aircraft are exempt from the Standards and Recommended Practices of 
Annex 11. The United States is a contracting state to the Convention. 
Article 3(d) of the Convention provides that participating state 
aircraft will be operated in international airspace with due regard for 
the safety of civil aircraft. Since this action involves, in part, the 
designation of navigable airspace outside the United States, the 
Administrator is consulting with the Secretary of State and the 
Secretary of Defense in accordance with the provisions of Executive 
Order 10854.
