Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This action amends Class D and Class E2 and E4 airspace at Gainesville, FL. As a result of relocating and renaming the Gainesville VORTAC (Airspace Docket 00-ASO-35), the VORTAC's position has been recalculated and final approach courses for the VHR Omni-directional Range (VOR) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) have been changed for the Gainesville Regional Airport, Gainesville, FL. This action amends the lateral limits of the existing Class D and E2 airspace from a 4.3-mile radius to a 4.9-mile radius of the Gainesville Regional Airport. The Class E4 airspace, designated as an extension to a Class D airspace area, will rotate clockwise 12° and amend the extension from the 4.3-mile radius to 7 miles northeast of the VORTAC to an extension from the 4.9-mile radius to 7 miles northeast of the VORTAC

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On May 29, 2001, the FAA proposed to amend Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) by amending Class D and Class E2 and E4 airspace at Gainesville, FL (66 FR 29056). Class D and Class E airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth and Class E airspace designations for airspace areas designated as an extension to a Class D airspace area are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002 and 6004 respectively, 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 Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

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.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) amends Class D and Class E2 and E4 airspace at Gainesville, 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.
