Revision of Class E Airspace; Toksook Bay, AK, 78179-78180 [E8-30014]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 246 / Monday, December 22, 2008 / Rules and Regulations E airspace is revised to accommodate aircraft executing amended instrument procedures, and will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Ketchikan International Airport, Ketchikan, Alaska. The FAA has determined that this 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 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 creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument procedures for the Ketchikan International Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Friday, October 17, 2008, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to revise Class E 
airspace upward from 700 ft. above the surface and from 1,200 ft. above 
the surface at Toksook Bay, AK (73 FR 61750). The action was proposed 
in order to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain 
aircraft while executing instrument procedures for the Toksook Bay 
Airport. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 
1,200 ft. above the surface in the Toksook Bay Airport area is revised 
by this action.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. 
No comments were received. The rule is adopted as proposed.
    The area will 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 700/1,200 
ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of 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 will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 revises Class E airspace at the 
Toksook Bay Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is revised to 
accommodate aircraft executing amended instrument procedures, and will 
be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended 
effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for 
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Toksook Bay Airport, 
Toksook Bay, Alaska.
    The FAA has determined that this 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 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 creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft 
executing instrument procedures for the Toksook Bay Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
