14 CFR Part 71

[Docket No. FAA-2013-0079; Airspace Docket No. 09-AWA-4]
RIN 2120-AA66


Amendment to Class B Airspace Area; Detroit, MI

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal 
Register January 21, 2014. In that rule, the shared boundary between 
the Detroit Class B airspace Area A and Area B subareas did not match, 
as originally intended, in the regulatory text descriptions. This 
correction is necessary to close the unintended gap between subareas 
created by the boundary error and to ensure the accuracy of the charted 
Detroit Class B airspace area.

DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, April 3, 2014. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
3 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and 
publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On January 21, 2014, a final rule for FAA Docket No. FAA-2012-0661, 
Airspace Docket No. 09-AWA-4, was published in the Federal Register (79 
FR 3305) to amend the Detroit Class B airspace area. The Detroit Class 
B airspace area was modified to contain aircraft conducting published 
instrument procedures at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport 
(DTW) within Class B airspace, enhance safety, improve the flow of air 
traffic, and reduce the potential for midair collisions in the DTW 
terminal area, while accommodating the concerns of all airspace users.
    Subsequent to publication of the rule, the FAA determined the 
boundary segment described in Area A, from lat. 42[deg]17'18'' N., 
long. 83[deg]27'27'' W. on the 4.4-mile radius of the Detroit Willow 
Run Airport to lat. 42[deg]20'47'' N., long. 83[deg]22'12'' W. on the 
8-mile arc of the DXO VOR/DME, and the boundary segment described in 
Area B, from the intersection of the DXO VOR/DME 354[deg] radial and 
the Detroit Willow Run Airport 047[deg] bearing to lat. 42[deg]20'47'' 
N., long. 83[deg]22'12'' W., did not align as intended and contained a 
gap between the two adjacent subareas. The FAA is correcting this minor 
error by adding the geographic point defined by the intersection of the 
DXO VOR/DME 354[deg] radial and the Detroit Willow Run Airport 047[deg] 
bearing in the Area A description to remove the gap.

Correction to Final Rule

    Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, in the 
Federal Register of January 21, 2014, the text on page 3312, column 2, 
line 47, is corrected to read:


Sec.  71.1  [Amended]

AGL MI B Detroit, MI [Corrected]

    For Area A, between the words ``Airport;'' and ``thence'', add the 
following: ``thence northeast to the intersection of the DXO VOR/DME 
354[deg] radial and the Detroit Willow Run Airport 047[deg] bearing:''.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on March 24, 2014.
