Date: 2008-12-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies the Class E Airspace at Franklin, NC to include the controlled airspace that is needed to support new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) that has been developed for Macon County Airport.

This action enhances the safety and management of IFR operations in the area by providing the required controlled airspace to support the SIAPs at Franklin, NC.
