SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

The Airspace Branch in the Western-Pacific Region received a request from the Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport air traffic control tower manager to include the airspace west of the airport beyond 1.8 miles of the north/south runway and within a 4.2 mile radius of the airport.

Class D airspace areas are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9H, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, through September 15, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations revises the legal description of the Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport Class D airspace area, AZ, by including that airspace within a 4.2-mile radius of the Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport west of a line 1.8 miles west of and parallel to the north/south runway. This action will change the actual dimensions, configuration, or operating requirements of the Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport Class D airspace area, AZ.

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. 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.
