Modification of Class E Airspace; Palm Springs, CA
Document Number: 06-2880
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-03-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies the Class E airspace area at Palm Springs, CA. The establishment of an Area Navigation (RNAV) Required Navigation Performance (RNP) Y Instrument Approach Procedures (IAP) to Runway (RWY) 13R and 31L to Palm Springs International Airport, Palm Springs, CA has made this action necessary. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing this RNAV (RNP) Y IAP RWY 13R to Palm Springs International Airport. The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules operations at Palm Springs International Airport, Palm Springs, CA.

Document Number: 06-2878
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-03-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Vandenberg AFB, CA. During a review of this airspace, it was determined that additional controlled airspace was needed for Category E aircraft conducting circling maneuvers in conjunction with published Standard Instrument Procedures. This airspace change will place aircraft in controlled airspace from final descent to runway and protect Category E aircraft while conducting a circling approach to land.

Document Number: 06-2877
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-03-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

The development of an Area Navigation (RNAV), Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) and Helicopter RNAV 206 approach for the Tyler Memorial Hospital to serve flights operating into the airport during Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) conditions makes this action necessary. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain aircraft executing an approach. The area would be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference.
