Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Boothville, LA
Document Number: 2017-16285
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-08-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Boothville, LA. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new special instrument approach procedures developed at Boothville Heliport, for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the heliport.
Amendment of Class D and E Airspace; Mosinee, WI
Document Number: 2017-16284
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace extending up to 700 feet above the surface at Central Wisconsin Airport, Mosinee, WI, to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Mosinee outer marker (OM) and DANCI locator outer marker (LOM) and cancellation of the associated approaches, and enhances the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport and the Wausau VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range and Collocated Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC). This proposal also updates the geographic coordinates in Class D and Class E surface area airspace, and makes an editorial change in the legal description by replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Pueblo, CO
Document Number: 2017-16283
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-08-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace upward from 700 feet above the surface at Pueblo Memorial Airport, Pueblo, CO. The part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) information would be removed from Class E airspace designated as an extension. The geographic coordinates for Pueblo Memorial Airport in the associated Class D and E airspace areas also would be amended to match the FAA's aeronautical database. A biennial review found these changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System. Also, an editorial change would be made to the Class D and Class E airspace legal descriptions replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement.''
Establishment of Class E Airspace, and Amendment of Class E Airspace; St. George, UT
Document Number: 2017-16282
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class E surface area, establishes Class E en route airspace, and modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at St. George Regional Airport (formerly St. George Municipal Airport), St. George, UT. After a review of the airspace, the FAA found redesign necessary to support new instrument flight rules (IFR) standard instrument approach procedures and en route operations where the Federal airway structure is inadequate, for the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport. Also, this action updates the airport name from St. George Municipal Airport, to St. George Regional Airport, in the associated Class E airspace areas.
