Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Proposed rule; withdrawal.


This action withdraws the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) which proposed to amend the Class E airspace at Lexington, KY. The NPRM is being withdrawn as a result of the determination that additional Class E airspace to contain aircraft executing the Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) Runway 4 (RWY 4) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) developed for Blue Grass Airport is not necessary, as the SIAP is fully contained within existing Class E airspace.


This proposed rule is withdrawn as of November 9, 2000.

The Proposed Rule

On September 25, 2000, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in the Federal Register to amend Class E airspace at Lexington, KY, (65 FR 57568) to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain the NDB RWY 4 SIAP developed for Blue Grass Airport. The initial airspace review for Lexington, KY, determined the need for an airspace extension. However, a follow-up review determined the extension was not necessary.
