AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This action modifies the Class E airspace area at Honolulu International Airport, HI. The establishment of an Area Navigation (RNAV) Required Navigation Performance (RNP) Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) to Runway (RWY) 08L and 26L to Honolulu International Airport, Honolulu, HI has made this action necessary. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing this RNAV (RNP) IAP to RWY 08L and 26L to Honolulu International Airport. The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules operations at Honolulu International Airport, Honolulu, HI.

DATES:

Effective Date: 0901 UTC January 18, 2007. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On August 2, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace area at Honolulu International Airport (06 FR 43680). Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or move above the surface is needed to contain aircraft executing the RNAV (RNP) IAP RWY 08L and 26L to Honolulu International Airport. This action will provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (RNP) IAP RWY 08L and 26L to Honolulu International Airport, Honolulu, HI.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments to the proposal were received. Class E airspace designations for airspace extending from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, 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 Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies the Class E airspace area at Honolulu International Airport, HI. The establishment of a RNAV (RNP) IAP RWY 08L and 26L to Honolulu International Airport has made this action necessary. The effect of this action will provide adequate airspace executing the RNAV (RNP) IAP RWY 08L and 26L to Honolulu International Airport, Honolulu, HI.

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 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulation 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 a small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
