DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
14 CFR Part 97

[Docket No. 28340; Amdt. No. 1686]


Standard Instrument Approach Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This amendment establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) 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, addition of new obstacles, or changes in 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: An effective date for each SIAP is specified in the amendatory 
provisions.
    Incorporation by reference-approved by the Director of the Federal 
Register on December 31, 1980, the reapproved as of January 1, 1982.

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

For Examination--

    1. FAA Rules Docket, FAA Headquarters Building, 800 Independence 
Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591;
    2. The FAA Regional Office of the region in which the affected 
airport is located; or
    3. The Flight Inspection Area Office which originated the SIAP.

For Purchase--Individual SIAP copies may be obtained from:
    1. FAA Public Inquiry Center (APA-200), FAA Headquarters Building, 
800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591; or
    2. The FAA Regional Office of the region in which the affected 
airport is located.

By Subscription--Copies of all SIAPs, mailed once every 2 weeks, are 
for sale by the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing 
Office, Washington, DC 20402.

Programs Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation 
Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 97 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 97) establishes, amends, suspends, or 
revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs). The complete 
regulatory description of each SIAP is contained in official FAA form 
documents which are incorporated by reference in this amendment under 5 
U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and Sec. 97.20 of the Federal Aviation 
Regulations (FAR). The applicable FAA Forms are identified as FAA Forms 
8260-3, 8260-4, and 8260-5. Materials incorporated by reference are 
available for examination or purchase as stated above.
    The large number of SIAPs, their complex nature, and the need for a 
special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register 
expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory 
text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts 
printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages 
of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the 
complete description of each SIAP contained in FAA form documents is 
unnecessary. The provisions of this amendment state the affected CFR 
(and FAR) sections, with the types and effective dates of the SIAPs. 
This amendment also identifies the airport, its location, the procedure 
identification and the amendment number.

The Rule

    This amendment to part 97 is effective upon publication of each 
separate SIAP as contained in the transmittal. Some SIAP amendments may 
have been previously issued by the FAA in a National 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 amendments may 
require making them effective in less than 30 days. For the remaining 
SIAPs, an effective date at least 30 days after publication is 
provided.
    Further, the SIAPs contained in this amendment are based on the 
criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument 
Approach Procedures (TERPS). In developing these SIAPs, 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 and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and 
public procedure before adopting these SIAPs 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.
    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'' and 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.
