IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments, 65256-65260 [2012-26334]

Download as PDF 65256 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 208 / Friday, October 26, 2012 / Rules and Regulations 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 I, 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 I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes controlled airspace surrounding Swinton Smith Field at Reidsville Municipal Airport, Reidsville, GA and amends controlled airspace at Vidalia Regional Airport, Vidalia, GA. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as prescribed in part 95.

This rulemaking is the culmination of a proceeding initiated by the Register on September 29, 2011. A more comprehensive statement of the background and legal requirements of the rulemaking, a discussion of the record, and the Register’s analysis are set forth in the Register’s Recommendation, which was transmitted to the Librarian on October 12, 2012. A copy of the Recommendation may be found at www.copyright.gov/1201/. This notice summarizes the Register’s Recommendation, announces the Librarian’s determination, and SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [Docket No. 2011–7] Jkt 229001 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 publishes the regulatory text codifying the exempted classes of works. I. Background A. Statutory Requirements The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (‘‘DMCA’’) was enacted to implement certain provisions of the WIPO Copyright Treaty and WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty. It established a wide range of rules for the digital marketplace that govern not only copyright owners, but also consumers, manufacturers, distributors, libraries, educators, and online service providers. Chapter 12 of Title 17 of the United States Code prohibits the circumvention of certain technological measures employed by or on behalf of copyright owners to protect their works (‘‘technological measures’’ or ‘‘access controls’’). Specifically, Section 1201(a)(1)(A) provides, in part, that ‘‘[n]o person shall circumvent a technological measure that effectively controls access to a work protected’’ by the Copyright Act. In order to ensure that the public will have the continued ability to engage in noninfringing uses of copyrighted works, however, subparagraph (B) limits this prohibition. It provides that the prohibition shall not apply to persons who are users of a copyrighted work in a particular class of works if such persons are, or in the E:\FR\FM\26OCR1.SGM 26OCR1

[Docket No. 30868; Amdt. No. 503]


IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required 
IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for 
certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a 
minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This 
regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the 
National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the 
safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument 
conditions in the affected areas.

DATES: Effective: 0901 UTC, November 15, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rick Dunham, Flight Procedure 
Standards Branch (AMCAFS-420), Flight Technologies and Programs 
Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration, 
Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, 6500 South MacArthur Blvd. Oklahoma 
City, OK 73169 (Mail Address: P.O. Box 25082 Oklahoma City, OK 73125) 
telephone: (405) 954-4164.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR 
altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a 
specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover 
points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as 
prescribed in part 95.

The Rule

    The specified IFR altitudes, when used in conjunction with the 
prescribed changeover points for those routes, ensure navigation aid 
coverage that is adequate for safe flight operations and free of 
frequency interference. The reasons and circumstances that create the 
need for this amendment involve matters of flight safety and 
operational efficiency in the National Airspace System, are related to 
published aeronautical charts that are essential to the user, and 
provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. In 
addition, those various reasons or circumstances require making this 
amendment effective before the next scheduled charting and publication 
date of the flight information to assure its timely availability to the 
user. The effective date of this amendment reflects those 
considerations. In view of the close and immediate relationship between 
these regulatory changes and safety in air commerce, I find that notice 
and public procedure before adopting this amendment are impracticable 
and contrary to the public interest and that good cause exists for 
making the amendment effective in less than 30 days.

Conclusion

    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. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
