Rule

Establishment of Class D Airspace; Oak Grove, NC

Action

Final Rule.

Summary

This action establishes Class D airspace at Oak Grove, NC. The United States Marine Corps operates a part time control tower at the Marine Corps Outlying Landing Facility (MCOLF) Airport. Class D surface area airspace is required when the control tower is open to accommodate instrument approaches and for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Therefore, the United States Marine Corps has requested the establishment of Class D airspace at this airport. This action establishes Class D airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 1,500 feet mean sea level (MSL) within a 4-mile radius of the MCOLF Airport.

History Back to Top

On June 23, 2000, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing Class D airspace at Oak Grove, NC (65 FR 39111). Designations for Class D airspace extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in paragraph 5000 of 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 designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were received.

The Rule Back to Top

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) establishes Class D airspace at Oak Grove, NC.

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.
