Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Astoria, OR
Document Number: 2013-01383
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-01-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing a SNPRM for the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published on October 9, 2012, in order to elicit comments addressing the proposed airspace modification west of the airport to accommodate aircraft using Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures. The FAA has reassessed the NPRM and finds that extension of the Class E airspace area west of the airport to within 11 miles north of the airport 268[deg] degree bearing is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the Astoria, OR, area.
