SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

The radar approach control facility at Patrick Air Force Base has been closed. This facility had the responsibility to monitor the hours of operation at the Cape Canaveral Skid Strip. The responsibility now resides with the St. Petersburg AFSS. Therefore, the Class D airspace at Cocoa Beach, FL, must be amended to reflect this change. This rule will become effective on the date specified in the DATE section. Since this action is technical in nature and has no impact on users of the airspace in the vicinity of the Cape Canaveral Skid Strip, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

The Rule

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends the Class D airspace description at Cocoa Beach, FL, for the Cape Canaveral Skid Strip.

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.
