ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: This action establishes Class E airspace at Elim, AK, to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at Elim Airport.

The Director of the Federal VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:12 Dec 15, 2009 Jkt 220001 This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at Elim Airport, AK, to accommodate new RNAV SIAPs at Elim Airport. This Class E airspace will provide adequate controlled airspace upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface, for safety and management of IFR operations at Elim Airport. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 66571 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 Elim Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Thursday, August 27, 2009, the FAA published a notice of 
proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register to establish Class E 
airspace at Elim, AK (74 FR 43647).
    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 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at Elim Airport, AK, to 
accommodate new RNAV SIAPs at Elim Airport. This Class E airspace will 
provide adequate controlled airspace upward from 700 and 1,200 feet 
above the surface, for safety and management of IFR operations at Elim 
Airport.
    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 Elim Airport and represents the 
FAA's continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable 
airspace.
