Document Number: 2018-02132
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is publishing this notice to advise the public of a modification to the Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) and notice of opportunity for public comment published in the Federal Register on April 21, 2014, at 79 FR 22177. Specifically, FAA is withdrawing Wildlife Fence Project from the scope of the EA, and the project will be subject instead to a discrete environmental review.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace, Amendment of Class D Airspace, and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Tacoma, WA
Document Number: 2018-02021
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Tacoma Narrows Airport, Tacoma, WA. This proposal also would remove Class E airspace designated as an extension at Tacoma Narrows Airport. Additionally, this action would update the geographic coordinates of the airport in Class D airspace, and make an editorial change to the Class D description replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement. These changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; for the Following Ohio Towns; Millersburg, OH and Coshocton, OH
Document Number: 2018-02017
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH; and at Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH due to the decommissioning of Tiverton VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME), cancellation of the VOR approaches, and implementation of area navigation (RNAV) procedures have made this action necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. Additionally, the geographic coordinates at Richard Downing Airport and Holmes County Airport would be adjusted to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and E Airspace; Casper, WY
Document Number: 2018-02013
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend controlled airspace at Casper/ Natrona County International Airport, Casper WY. After a biennial review, the FAA proposes to enlarge Class D airspace; remove Class E airspace designated as an extension, reduce Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and remove Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface. Also, this action would update the airport's name and geographic coordinates for the associated Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA's current aeronautical database. These proposed changes would enhance safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Atwater, CA
Document Number: 2018-02012
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA, to accommodate airspace redesign due to the decommissioning of the El Nido VHF Omnidirectional Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) as the FAA transitions from ground-based to satellite-based navigation. Also, this action would update the airport's geographic coordinates to match the FAA's aeronautical database. This action also would make an editorial change to the Class D airspace legal description replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement''. These actions are necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
