Federal Aviation Administration

14 CFR Part 71

[Docket No. FAA-2010-0354, Airspace Docket No. 10-AAL-10]

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Port Clarence, AK

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date, correction.


SUMMARY: This action changes the effective date for the establishment 
of Class E airspace at Port Clarence Coast Guard Station (CGS) Airport, 
Port Clarence, AK. The charting of this airspace has been delayed; 
therefore the effective date of the establishment of the Class E 
airspace area also must be delayed. A minor correction to a geographic 
coordinate also will be made.

DATES: This correction is effective 0901 UTC, May 5, 2011, and the 
effective date of FR Doc. 2010-25479, published on October 12, 2010 (75 
FR 62457) and corrected by FR Doc. 2010-32293, published on December 
27, 2010 (75 FR 62457) is delayed to 0901 UTC, May 5. 2011.
    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.

    Federal Register Document FAA-2010-0354, Airspace Docket No. 10-
AAL-10, published on Monday, December 27, 2010 [75 FR 81110] makes a 
correction to the boundary description that establishes Class E 
airspace at Port Clarence CGS Airport, Port Clarence, AK. Subsequent to 
publication, the FAA's Aeronautical Products office stated that more 
time was needed to chart the airspace. Therefore, this action will 
delay the effective date of January 13, 2011, to May 5, 2011, to allow 
better coordination for the charting of this airspace. An error also 
was discovered in the regulatory text for a latitudinal coordinate. 
This action corrects this error.
    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. Because 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 small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle 1, section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
subtitle VII, part A, subpart 1, section 40103, Sovereignty and use of 
airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing 
regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable 
airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because 
it creates Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft 
executing instrument procedures for the Port Clarence CGS Airport and 
represents the FAA's

continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace.
