14 CFR Part 97

[Docket No. 30902; Amdt. No. 3537]


Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and 
Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard 
Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums 
and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. 
These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or 
revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National 
Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational 
facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. 
These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the 
navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under 
instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

DATES: This rule is effective June 10, 2013. The compliance date for 
each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the 
amendatory provisions.
    The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in 
the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as 
of June 10, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Availability of matters incorporated by reference in the 
amendment is as follows:

Telephone: (405) 954-4164.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations, part 97 (14 CFR part 97), by establishing, 
amending, suspending, or revoking SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and/or ODPS. 
The complete regulators description of each SIAP and its associated 
Takeoff Minimums or ODP for an identified airport is listed on FAA form 
documents which are incorporated by reference in this amendment under 5 
U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and 14 CFR 97.20. The applicable FAA 
Forms are FAA Forms 8260-3, 8260-4, 8260-5, 8260-15A, and 8260-15B when 
required by an entry on 8260-15A.
    The large number of SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, in addition 
to their complex nature and the need for a special format make 
publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. 
Furthermore, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, 
Takeoff Minimums or ODPs, but instead refer to their depiction on 
charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. The advantages 
of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the 
complete description of each SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP listed on 
FAA forms is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR 
sections and specifies the types of SIAPs and the effective dates of 
the, associated Takeoff Minimums and ODPs. This amendment also 
identifies the airport and its location, the procedure, and the 
amendment number.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of 
each separate SIAP, Takeoff Minimums and ODP as contained in the 
transmittal. Some SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and

[[Page 34560]]

textual ODP amendments may have been issued previously by the FAA in a 
Flight Data Center (FDC) Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) as an emergency 
action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published 
aeronautical charts. The circumstances which created the need for some 
SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP amendments may require making them 
effective in less than 30 days. For the remaining SIAPS and Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPS, an effective date at least 30 days after publication 
is provided.
    Further, the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPS contained in this 
amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for 
Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these SIAPS and 
Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied to the 
conditions existing or anticipated at the affected airports. Because of 
the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff 
Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and 
public procedures before adopting these SIAPS, Takeoff Minimums and 
ODPs are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where 
applicable, that good cause exists for making some SIAPs effective in 
less than 30 days.

Conclusion

    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. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
