SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On August 9, 2000, the FAA proposed to amend Part 71 of Title 14 of the Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing a Class D airspace area, a Class E surface area extension and amends the Class E surface area from full time to part time status at Garden City, KS (65 FR 48651). The proposed action was to provide controlled airspace for the safe and efficient operation of aircraft operating into and out of the Garden City Regional 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 D airspace areas designated for an airport that contain at least one primary airport around which the airspace is designated are published in paragraph 5000, Class E airspace areas designated as a surface area for an airport are published in paragraph 6002, and Class E airspace areas designated as an extension to Class D airspace areas are published in paragraph 6004 of FAA Order 7400.9H, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The 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 a Class D airspace area, a Class E surface area extension and amends the Class E surface area from full time to part time status at Garden City Regional Airport, Garden City, KS. An ATCT is being established at Garden City Regional Airport and Class D and Class E surface areas are necessary for the safe and efficient operation of aircraft in the vicinity of the airport. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.

The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulation 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.
