This action modifies Class E airspace at Newport Municipal Airport, Newport, OR. Newly developed Area Navigation (RNAV) Special Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at the Newport Municipal Airport made this action necessary. Additional Class E 700-feet and 1,200-feet controlled airspace above the surface of the earth is required to contain aircraft executing Start Printed Page 35900the RNAV RWY 16 RNAV SIAP at Newport Municipal Airport. The intended effect of this proposal is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Newport Municipal Airport, Newport, OR.

On March 11, 2002, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E Airspace at Newport, OR in order to provide a safer IFR environmental at Newport Municipal Airport, Newport, OR (67 FR 10864). This amendment provides additional Class E5 700 and 1,200 foot controlled Airspace at Newport, OR to contain aircraft conducting instrument flight operations at Newport Municipal Airport. Additionally, this action modifies the effective hours of the Class E-2 Surface Area from part-time to continuous. Interested parties were invited to participate in the rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) modifies Class E Airspace at Newport, OR, in order to provide adequate controlled Airspace for IFR operations at Newport Municipal Airport, Newport, OR. Newly developed RNAV RWY 16 SIAP at the Newport Municipal Airport and newly installed 24-hour weather reporting equipment made this modification necessary. Additional Class E 700-feet and E 1,200-feet controlled Airspace, above the surface of the earth is required to contain aircraft executing the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations, at Newport Municipal Airport. New weather reporting equipment has been installed and certified; therefore, this action modifies the Class E-2 Airspace at Newport, OR to a 24-hour operation. The FAA establishes Class E Airspace where necessary to contain aircraft transitioning between the terminal and en route environments. This rule is designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable Airspace and to promote safe flight operations under IFR at the Newport Municipal Airport and between the terminal and en route transition stages.
The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The coordinates for this Airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. Class E Airspace designated as surface area for an airport, are published in Paragraph 6002; Class E Airspace areas extending upward from 700-feet or more above the surface of the earth, are published in Paragraph 6005, of FAA Order 7400.9J, dated August 31, 2001, and effective September 16, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E Airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore, (1) is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a “significant rule” under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.Start List of Subjects
