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 establish Class E airspace at 
the Elim Airport, Elim, AK. The intended effect of this proposal is to 
establish Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the 
surface to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Elim 
Airport, Elim, AK.
    The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance 
Branch has created two new SIAPs for the Elim Airport, one textual ODP 
and one SID. The SIAPs are (1) the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global 
Positioning System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 01, Original and (2) the RNAV 
(GPS) RWY 19, Original. The SID is the ELIM ONE RNAV Sid. Textual ODPs 
are unnamed and are 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 Elim Airport area 
would be established by this action. The proposed airspace is 
sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing the instrument 
procedures at the Elim Airport, Elim, AK.
    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 subsequently published 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 establish Class E airspace at Elim Airport, Elim, AK, 
and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently 
use the navigable airspace.
