Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Salem, OR
Document Number: 2016-15266
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-06-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at McNary Field, Salem, OR. Two approaches, the Localizer (LOC) Y runway (RWY) 31 and the LOC/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) Back Course (BC) approach RWY 13 were identified as needing additional airspace to meet airspace requirements. The FAA, also, found modification of the airspace for the LOC/DME BC RWY 13 posed an increased risk to the safety of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at the airport.
