Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Pelion, SC

Summary:

A notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register on August 22, 2011 amending Class E airspace at Lexington County Airport at Pelion, Pelion, SC, is being withdrawn. Upon review, the FAA found that controlled airspace already exists for this airport under a different city designator and airport name, and substantial corrections would need to be made. In the interest of clarity, a new proposal amending existing airspace and establishing airspace with the new information will be submitted under a separate rulemaking.

Dates:

Effective December 14, 2011, the proposed rule published August 22, 2011 (76 FR 52290), is withdrawn. 0901 UTC.

History

On August 22, 2011, a NPRM was published in the Federal Register amending Class E airspace at Pelion, SC to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures for Lexington County Airport at Pelion (76 FR 52290). Subsequent to publication the FAA found that the airspace currently existed under the airport's previous name of Corporate Airport and the city designator of Columbia, SC. To avoid confusion this proposed rule is being withdrawn and will be established under another rulemaking with the new airport name and designation, along with an amendment for the Columbia, SC controlled airspace area removing Corporate Airport from the description.
