Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Proposed rule: withdrawal.

The FAA proposed to establish Class E airspace at the White Hills Airstrip, AK, to support the installation of instrument approach procedures. The FAA has since been advised by the proponent that the airstrip will not be used for instrument approaches in the near term. Therefore, the FAA has determined that withdrawal of the proposed rule is warranted.
