History Back to Top

The Tupelo, MS, Airport Authority has changed the name of the airport to better describe the area served. This amendment is necessary to reflect that change. The dimensions, configuration and operating requirements of the affected airspace do not change. This rule will become effective on the date specified in the DATES section. Since this action does not change the dimensions, configuration or operating requirements of the Class D, Class E2 or Class E5 airspace for the airport, and as a result, has no impact on users of the airspace in the vicinity of the Tupelo Regional Airport, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Designations for class D, Class E2 and Class E5 airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface are published in FAA Order 7400.9G, dated September 1, 1999, and effective September 16, 1999, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule Back to Top

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) changes the name of Tupelo Municipal—C.D. Lemons Municipal Airport and changes the title of the airspace designation for the Tupelo Regional Airport located at Tupelo, MS, from Tupelo Municipal—C.D. Lemons Municipal Airport, MS, to Tupelo Regional Airport. MS.

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. Since 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.
