Proposed Revision of Class D and E Airspace; King Salmon, AK, 74378-74380 [E8-28978]

Download as PDF yshivers on PROD1PC62 with PROPOSALS 74378 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 236 / Monday, December 8, 2008 / Proposed Rules Maintenance Branch has created two new SIAPs for the Umiat Airport. The SIAPs are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 06, Original and (2) the RNAV (GPS) RWY 24, Original. The Textual ODP is unnamed and will be 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 in the Umiat Airport area would be established by this action. The proposed airspace is sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument procedures at the Umiat Airport, Umiat, 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 7400.9S, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, 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. Because 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:06 Dec 05, 2008 Jkt 217001 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 Umiat Airport, AK, and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

Section 409A also includes rules applicable to certain trusts or similar arrangements associated with nonqualified deferred compensation. On December 20, 2004, the IRS issued Notice 2005–1 (2005–2 CB 274), setting forth initial guidance on the application of section 409A, and providing transition guidance in accordance with the terms of the statute.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to the Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR part 71), which would revise Class D and E airspace 
at the King Salmon Airport, in King Salmon, AK. The intended effect of 
this proposal is to revise Class D and 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 the King Salmon Airport, 
King Salmon, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has amended nine SIAPs and an ODP for the King Salmon Airport. 
The approaches are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning 
System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 12, Amendment (Amdt) 1; (2) the RNAV (GPS) 
RWY 30, Amdt 1; (3) the Localizer (LOC)/Distance Measuring Equipment 
(DME) Backcourse RWY 30, Amdt 4; (4) the Instrument Landing System 
(ILS) or LOC/DME RWY 12, Amdt 17; (5) the HI ILS or LOC/DME RWY 12, 
Amdt 6; (6) the Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range (VOR)/DME or 
Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN) RWY 30, Amdt 10; (7) the VOR or TACAN 
RWY 12, Amdt 13; (8) the HI VOR/DME or TACAN RWY 12, Amdt 4; and (9) 
the HI VOR/DME or TACAN RWY 30, Amdt 4. The Textual ODP is unnamed and 
will be 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 in the King Salmon 
Airport area would be revised by this action. The proposed airspace is 
sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument 
procedures at the King Salmon Airport, King Salmon, 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 D airspace area designations are published 
in paragraph 5000 in FAA Order 7400.9S, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, signed October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 
2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E2 
surface areas are published in paragraph 6002 in FAA Order 7400.9S, 
Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed October 3, 2008, and 
effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class E4 surface areas designated as extensions to Class 
D surface areas are published in paragraph 6004 in FAA Order 7400.9S, 
Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed October 3, 2008, and 
effective October 31, 2008, 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 7400.9S, 
Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed October 3, 2008, and 
effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class D and 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. Because 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 King Salmon Airport,

AK, and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.
