SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

Since the Lexington Municipal Airport, NC, has been renamed the Davidson County Airport, the Class E5 Start Printed Page 10387airspace description must be amended to reflect this change. Since this amendment is technical in nature and does not change the dimensions of the Class E airspace area, it has no impact on users of the airspace. This rule will become effective on the date specified in the EFFECTIVE DATE section.

The Rule

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) makes a technical amendment to the Class E5 airspace description at Lexington, NC, by changing the airport name to Davidson County Airport and updating the airport coordinates.

Class E airspace areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9G, dated September 1, 1999, and effective September 16, 1999, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace area listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

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.
