On Tuesday, January 19, 1999, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to modify Class E airspace at Yankton, SD (64 FR 2864). The proposal was to increase the effective hours of operation from one (1) hour per day to twenty-four (24) hours per day to accommodate air carrier operations for Chan Gurney Municipal Airport. 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. Class E airspace areas designated as a surface area for an airport published in paragraph 6002 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 designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modified Class E airspace at Yankton, SD, by amending the hours of operation of the Class E airspace for Chan Gurney Municipal Airport. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
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.Start List of Subjects
