SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On May 22, 2000, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of Title 14 of the Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing Class E airspace area at Lamoni, IA (65 FR 32047). The proposed action was to provide controlled airspace to accommodate aircraft executing the RNAV RWY 17 and RNAV RWY 35 SIAPs. In addition, this action corrects an error in the latitude of ARP for the Lamoni Municipal Airport as it appeared in the proposed rule.

After careful review of all available information related to the subject presented above, the FAA has determined that air safety and the public interest require adoption of the rule. The FAA has determined that this correction will not change the meaning of the action nor add any additional burden on the public beyond that which was proposed. This action corrects the error in the latitude of the Lamoni Municipal Airport ARP.

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 extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth 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 designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of Title 14 of the Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 71) establishes Class E airspace area at Lamoni, IA, by providing controlled airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV RWY 17 and RNAV RWY 35 SIAPs. 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.
