Regulations Respecting Zoning at Rankin Inlet Airport

P.C. 1993-1312 1993-06-16

Whereas, pursuant to section 5.5 of the Aeronautics Act, a copy of the proposed Regulations respecting zoning at Rankin Inlet Airport substantially in the form set out in the schedule hereto, was published in two successive issues of the Canada Gazette Part I, on March 20th and 27th, 1993, and in two successive issues of the News of the North on March 22th and 29th, 1993, and a reasonable opportunity was thereby afforded to interested persons to make representations to the Minister of Transport with respect thereto;

Therefore, His Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of Transport, pursuant to section 5.4 of the Aeronautics Act, is pleased hereby to make the annexed Regulations respecting zoning at Rankin Inlet Airport.

Short Title

 These Regulations may be cited as the Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Regulations.

Interpretation

  •  (1) In these Regulations,

    airport

    airport means the Rankin Inlet Airport, in the vicinity of Rankin Inlet, in the Northwest Territories; (aéroport)

    airport reference point

    airport reference point means the point described in Part I of the schedule; (point de repère de l’aéroport)

    approach surfaces

    approach surfaces means the imaginary inclined planes that extend upward and outward from each end of a strip, which planes are more particularly described in Part II of the schedule; (surfaces d’approche)

    outer surface

    outer surface means the imaginary plane located above and in the immediate vicinity of the airport, which plane is more particularly described in Part III of the schedule; (surface extérieure)

    strip

    strip means the rectangular portion of the landing area of the airport, including the runway, prepared for the take-off and landing of aircraft in a particular direction, which portion is more particularly described in Part IV of the schedule; (bande)

    transitional surfaces

    transitional surfaces means the imaginary inclined planes that extend upward and outward from the lateral limits of a strip and its approach surfaces, which planes are more particularly described in Part V of the schedule. (surfaces de transition)

  • (2) For the purposes of these Regulations, the elevation of the airport reference point is 26.19 m above sea level.

Application

 These Regulations apply to all land, including public road allowances, that is adjacent to or in the vicinity of the airport, which land is more particularly described as follows:

  • (a) the land within the outer limit described in Part VI of the schedule; and

  • (b) the land directly under those portions of the approach surfaces that extend beyond the outer limit.

General

 No person shall erect or construct, on any land to which these Regulations apply, any building, structure or object or any addition to any existing building, structure or object, the highest point of which will exceed in elevation at the location of that point:

  • (a) the approach surfaces;

  • (b) the outer surface; or

  • (c) the transitional surfaces.

SCHEDULE(Sections 2 and 3)

PART IDescription of the Airport Reference Point

The airport reference point, shown on Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Plan No. E.2847, dated October 16, 1990, is a point located on the centre line of runway 129-309 distant 914.4 m from the threshold of runway 309.

PART IIDescription of the Approach Surfaces

The approach surfaces, shown on Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Plan No. E.2847, dated October 16, 1990, are planes abutting each end of the strip associated with runway 129-309 and are described as follows:

  • (a) an inclined plane abutting the end of the strip associated with runway approach 129 having a ratio of 1 m measured vertically to 50 m measured horizontally rising to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip and distant 15 000 m measured horizontally from the end of the strip; the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being 2 400 m from the projected centre line; said imaginary horizontal line being 300 m above the elevation at the end of the strip; and

  • (b) an inclined plane abutting the end of the strip associated with runway approach 309 having a ratio of 1 m measured vertically to 50 m measured horizontally rising to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip and distant 15 000 m measured horizontally from the end of the strip; the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being 2 400 m from the projected centre line; said imaginary horizontal line being 300 m above the elevation at the end of the strip.

PART IIIDescription of the Outer Surface

The outer surface, shown on Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Plan No. E.2847, dated October 16, 1990, is an imaginary plane established at a constant elevation of 45 m above the elevation of the airport reference point, except that, where that plane is less than 9 m above the surface of the ground, the outer surface is located at 9 m above the surface of the ground.

PART IVDescription of the Strip

The strip associated with runway 129-309, shown on Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Plan No. E.2847, dated October 16, 1990, is 300 m in width, 150 m being on each side of the centre line of the runway, and 1 948.8 m in length.

PART VDescription of the Transitional Surfaces

Each transitional surface, shown on Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Plan No. E.2847, dated October 16, 1990, is an inclined plane rising at a ratio of 1 m measured vertically to 7 m measured horizontally at right angles to the centre line and projected centre line of the strip, extending upward and outward from the lateral limits of the strip and its approach surfaces to an intersection with the outer surface.

PART VIDescription of the Outer Limit

The outer limit, shown on Rankin Inlet Airport Zoning Plan No. E.2847, dated October 16, 1990, is a circle with a radius of 4 000 m centred on the airport reference point.
