Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Burlington, WI
Document Number: 2017-17755
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-08-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Burlington Municipal Airport, Burlington, WI. This action is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Burbun VHF omnidirectional range (VOR), and cancellation of the VOR approach procedure, and would enhance the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport, as the FAA transitions to performance-based navigation as part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of the airport.
Proposed Establishment of Class D Airspace; Burns Flat, OK; Revocation of Class D Airspace; Clinton-Sherman Airport, OK; and Amendment of E Airspace for the Following Oklahoma Towns: Burns Flat, OK; Clinton, OK; and Elk City, OK
Document Number: 2017-17753
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-08-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class D airspace at Clinton- Sherman Airport, Burns Flat, OK; remove Class D airspace at Clinton- Sherman Airport, Clinton-Sherman Airport, OK; and amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Clinton- Sherman Airport, Burns Flat, OK; Clinton Municipal Airport, Clinton, OK; and Elk City Regional Business Airport, Elk City, OK. The FAA is proposing this action due to the decommissioning of the Sayre co- located VHF omnidirectional range and tactical air navigation (VORTAC) facility, which provided navigation guidance for the instrument procedures to these airports. The VORTAC is being decommissioned as part of the VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program.
Amendment of Class D and E Airspace; Mosinee, WI
Document Number: 2017-17751
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register of August 3, 2017 that modifies Class D and E airspace at Central Wisconsin Airport, Mosinee, WI, to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. The FAA identified that, in the Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, the Wausau VORTAC was not removed as a result of the decommissioning of the Mosinee outer marker (OM) and DANCI locator outer marker (LOM) and cancellation of the associated approaches.
