Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Lapeer, MI
Document Number: 2018-18768
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Dupont-Lapeer Airport, Lapeer, MI. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Pontiac VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. Airspace redesign would enhance the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Jacksonville, IL
Document Number: 2018-18767
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Jacksonville Municipal Airport, Jacksonville, IL. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Jacksonville VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The geographic coordinates for the airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautic database. This action is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.

Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of the Mc Entire JNGB, and Shaw AFB, and Sumter Airport, Sumter, SC, and updates the names of Mc Entire JNGB and Sumter Airport. In addition, an editorial change is made to the airspace designation in both Class D and E airspace.
