The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at the Chuathbaluk Airport, AK. This Class E airspace is established to accommodate aircraft executing a new instrument procedure, 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 Chuathbaluk Airport, Chuathbaluk, AK. 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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:30 Oct 09, 2009 Jkt 220001 substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Monday, July 6, 2009, the FAA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking in the Federal Register to establish Class E airspace at 
Chuathbaluk, AK (74 FR 31899). Subsequent to publication, the FAA found 
an error in the geographic coordinates and textual description for 
Chuathbaluk Airport. This action corrects these errors.
    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, with corrected coordinates, is 
adopted as proposed.
    The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 ft. transition 
areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9T, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 27, 2009, and 
effective September 15, 2009, 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 establishes Class E airspace at 
the Chuathbaluk Airport, AK. This Class E airspace is established to 
accommodate aircraft executing a new instrument procedure, 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 Chuathbaluk Airport, 
Chuathbaluk, AK.
    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 Chuathbaluk Airport and 
represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use 
the navigable airspace.
