Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This action will revise the Class E airspace area at Jackson, WY. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using a new Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) approach procedure with Lateral/Vertical Navigation (LNAV/VNAV) minimums. This additional controlled airspace is necessary for the safety of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft executing this new LPV approach procedure at Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, WY. This final rule also corrects an error in the airport's latitude and longitude coordinates and reference to exclusions to surrounding controlled airspace in the airspace description section.

DATES:

Effective Date: 0901 UTC, August 3, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On December 28, 2005, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise Class E airspace at Jackson, WY (70 FR 76729). The proposed action would provide additional controlled airspace for the safety of IFR aircraft using a new LPV approach procedure with LNAV/VNAV minimums at Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, WY. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.

Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace at Jackson, WY. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft executing a new LPV approach procedure with LNAV/VNAV minimums. This additional controlled airspace is necessary for the safety of IFR aircraft executing this new LPV approach procedure at Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, WY. This final rule also corrects an error in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Jackson Hole Airport's latitude and longitude coordinates and reference to exclusions to surrounding controlled airspace in the airspace description section.

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. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a “significant rule” under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 Start Printed Page 32271FR 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
