List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace the Platinum Airport, in Platinum, AK, to accommodate the creation of a new SIAP at the Platinum Airport. This Class E airspace would provide adequate controlled airspace upward from 700 feet and 1,200 feet above the surface, for the safety and management of IFR operations at the Platinum Airport. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1200 foot transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 in FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed 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 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. Because 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 revise Class E airspace at the Platinum Airport, Platinum, AK, and represents the FAA’s Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

The Proposal

    This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace the Platinum Airport, in 
Platinum, AK, to accommodate the creation of a new SIAP at the Platinum 
Airport. This Class E airspace would provide adequate controlled 
airspace upward from 700 feet and 1,200 feet above the surface, for the 
safety and management of IFR operations at the Platinum Airport.
    The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1200 foot transition 
areas are published in paragraph 6005 in FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, signed 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 
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. Because 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 revise Class E airspace at the Platinum Airport, 
Platinum, AK, and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.
