Re-Designation of VOR Federal Airway V-431; Alaska
This technical amendment corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register on July 7, 2006 (71 FR 38516), Docket No. FAA- 2005-20551, Airspace Docket No. 06-AAL-18. In that rule, the reference to Docket No. FAA-2005-20551 as published was in error. The correct Docket No. is FAA-2006-25186. Also, the reference to FAA Order 7400.9 was published as FAA Order 7400.9O. The correct reference is FAA Order 7400.9P. Additionally, the corresponding date that refers to the date the Order was effective should state ``September 15, 2006'' instead of ``September 16, 2006''.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
This amendment amends Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, addition of new obstacles, or changes in air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
The FAA proposes to amend the regulations for repair stations by revising the system of ratings and requiring repair stations to establish a quality program. The FAA also proposes additional changes critical to maintaining safety. These include requiring a repair station to maintain a capability list, designating a chief inspector, and having permanent housing for its facilities, equipment, materials, and personnel. In addition, this proposal also specifies those instances when the FAA may deny a repair station certificate. The proposal looks at the particular cases where a previously held certificate has been revoked. Lastly, the FAA proposes to clarify recent revisions to the repair station regulations. This action is necessary to reflect changes in aviation technology and repair station business practices.
