Part III February 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Redesignation of Mountainous Areas in Alaska
Document Number: 05-2594
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-11
Agency: Part III, Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule updates the designated mountainous areas in the State of Alaska. Regulations currently designating mountainous areas in Alaska were established in 1956. Since that time, we have concluded that areas previously considered non-mountainous should be expanded, and two areas previously designated mountainous should be considered non-mountainous. This final rule will allow aircraft operating in certain non-mountainous areas to fly at altitudes acceptable for the actual topography of the area.
