SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On September 25, 2000, the FAA proposed to amend Part 71 of the Federal Aviation regulations (14 CFR part 71) by amending Class D airspace at Kissimmee, FL (65 FR 57567), at the request of Orlando Approach Control, the controlling ATC facility for IFR operations at Kissimmee Municipal Airport. Designations for Class D airspace are published in FAA Order 7400.9H, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.11. The Class D designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order.

The Rule

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class D airspace Kissimmee, FL.

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.
