If the exclusionary language were allowed to take effect, these areas would be without controlled airspace in violation of FAA directives. As a result, the additional corrections were included in the final rule. The FAA is in the process of reviewing and correcting the terminal airspace in and around Alaska.

History

    The FAA published a final rule for Docket No. FAA-2020-0823 in the 
Federal Register (86 FR 18890; April 12, 2021) to reverse the final 
rule for Docket No. FAA-2006-25852 in the Federal Register (72 FR 
31714; June 8, 2007; as corrected 72 FR 37430, July 10, 2007) that 
amended the offshore airspace areas, including: Norton Sound Low, Woody 
Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; 
Alaska, to include terminal airspace previously thought to be excluded 
in the Code of Federal Regulations. Additionally, the final rule 
corrected the final rule for Docket No. FAA-2006-26164 in the Federal 
Register (72 FR 5611; February 7, 2007) that revoked Class E Airspace 
for Adak, ATKA, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand 
Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK. Subsequent to the 
NPRM being posted, the FAA identified 15 facilities and navigation aids 
that contained language in the legal descriptions excluding airspace 
beyond 12 nautical miles (NM) from the coastline. If the exclusionary 
language were allowed to take effect, these areas would be without 
controlled airspace in violation of FAA directives. As a result, the 
additional corrections were included in the final rule.
    The FAA is in the process of reviewing and correcting the terminal 
airspace in and around Alaska. Continuing with this final rule may 
cause some confusion with all the changes taking place. Therefore, the 
final rule is being withdrawn.
