History

On April 4, 2000, the FAA proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E airspace at North Bend, OR, in order to accommodate a revised SIAP to the North Bend Municipal Airport, North Bend, OR (65 FR 17616). This amendment will provide additional airspace at North Bend, OR, to meet current criteria standards associated with SIAP holding patterns. Interested parties were invited to participate in the rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.

The Rule

This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) revises Class E airspace at North Bend Airport, North Bend, OR. This amendment provides revised airspace at North Bend, OR, to better meet current airspace standards associated with established procedures at North Bend Airport. The FAA establishes airspace where necessary to contain aircraft transitioning between the terminal and en route environments. This amendment provides for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. This amendment promotes safe flight operations under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) and Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and the North Bend Airport, North Bend, OR, and between the terminal and en route transition stages.

The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. 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 FAA has determined 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
