Amendment of Class D Airspace and Class E Airspace, and Removal of Class E Airspace; Binghamton, NY
Document Number: 2018-13050
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Class D airspace, Class E surface airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface; and removes Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area; at Greater Binghamton Airport/Edwin A. Link Field (formerly Binghamton Regional Airport/Edwin A. Link Field), Binghamton, NY. This action accommodates airspace reconfiguration due to the decommissioning of the Binghamton VHF omni-directional radio range tactical air navigation aid (VORTAC), and cancellation of the VOR approaches. 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 airport, and corrects the airport's name. Additionally, this action replaces the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' in Class D and E surface airspace descriptions.
