Revision of Class E Airspace; Tanana, AK, 62458-62459 [2010-25480]

Download as PDF 62458 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 12, 2010 / Rules and Regulations that airspace will be redefined in a future Offshore Airspace action. 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 Port Clarence CGS Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. There was an error in the notice of proposed rulemaking regarding the E5 airspace coordinates for the Unalakleet VOR/DME. This error has been corrected in the final rule. The coordinates for the Unalakleet airport have been updated from those used in previous airspace revisions made in 1996 and 1998 as a result of more accurate survey data now available.

The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by enlarging Class E5 airspace at the Unalakleet Airport, Unalakleet, AK, to accommodate a new departure procedure, and 2 new and amended SIAPs at Unalakleet Airport. The new SIAPs and the amendments to existing SIAPs require that the orientation and dimensions of Class E airspace be revised for the safety and efficiency of management of air IFR traffic. The revised Class E airspace provides adequate controlled airspace upward from the surface, and from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface for the safety of IFR operations at Unalakleet Airport by ensuring that Class E airspace is sufficient for management of air traffic.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Tuesday, July 6, 2010, the FAA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking in the Federal Register to revise Class E airspace at the 
Ralph M. Calhoun Memorial Airport, Tanana, AK (75 FR 38753).
    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 Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 ft. transition 
areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 18, 2010, and effective 
September 15, 2010, 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 revising Class E airspace at Ralph M. Calhoun Memorial 
Airport, in Tanana, AK, to accommodate amended SIAPs at Ralph M. 
Calhoun Memorial Airport. This Class E airspace provides adequate 
controlled airspace upward from 700 feet and 1,200 feet above the 
surface for the safety of IFR operations at Ralph M. Calhoun Memorial 
Airport by ensuring that Class E airspace is sufficient for management 
of air traffic.
    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

[[Page 62459]]

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 revises Class E airspace at Ralph M. Calhoun Memorial Airport, 
Tanana, AK, and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.
