The meeting will be open to all persons who are scheduled to attend or present statements or who register between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. on the day of the meeting.

The meeting may adjourn early if scheduled speakers complete their statements in less time than is scheduled for the meeting. (2) An individual presenting oral remarks, whether speaking in a personal capacity or as a representative of an organization, may be limited to a 10minute statement. If possible, we will notify the speaker if additional time is available. (3) We will try to accommodate all speakers. If the available time does not permit this, speakers generally will be scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:57 Nov 06, 2008 Jkt 217001 The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71, which would revise Class E airspace at the Edward G. Pitka Airport, in Galena, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to revise existing Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Edward G. Pitka Airport, Galena, AK. The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch has amended two SIAPs for the Edward G. Pitka Airport. The amended SIAPs are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 7, Original, and (2) the RNAV (GPS) RWY 25, Original. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface in the Edward G. Pitka Airport area would be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the Edward G. Pitka Airport, Galena, 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 PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 the Edward G. Pitka Airport, AK, and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

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 Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71, which would revise Class E airspace at 
the Edward G. Pitka Airport, in Galena, AK. The intended effect of this 
proposal is to revise existing Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 
1,200 ft. above the surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) 
operations at the Edward G. Pitka Airport, Galena, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has amended two SIAPs for the Edward G. Pitka Airport. The 
amended SIAPs are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning 
System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 7, Original, and (2) the RNAV (GPS) RWY 25, 
Original. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 
1,200 ft. above the surface in the Edward G. Pitka Airport area would 
be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size 
to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the Edward 
G. Pitka Airport, Galena, 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 airspace sufficient in size to contain 
aircraft executing instrument procedures at the Edward G. Pitka 
Airport, AK, and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.
