History

On January 9, 2000, the Kansas City, Richard-Gebaur Airport, MO was closed. Based on the airport being closed the Class D and Class E airspace areas are no longer necessary.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 71) removes the Class D and Class E airspace areas at Kansas City, Richards-Gebaur Airport, MO, extending upward from the surface to 1200 feet Above Ground Level (AGL). The closing of the airport made this action necessary.

The FAA concludes that there is an immediate need to remove the Class D and Class E airspace in order to incorporate this change into the next Sectional Chart and avoid confusion on the part of the pilots. Therefore, it is found that notice and opportunity to prior public comment herein are impracticable, and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days.

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. Therefore, this regulation: (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.
