On April 18, 2001 a document proposing to amend Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) by extending Class D airspace upward to, but not including 3000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) at Westchester County Airport, White Plains, NY, was published in the Federal Register (66 FR 19907). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments to the proposal were received. The rule is adopted as proposed. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. Class D airspace areas designations for airspace extending upward from the surface are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9J, dated August 31, 2001 and effective September 16, 2001. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published in the order.

The Rule

This amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 71) provides controlled Class D airspace extending upward from the surface of the earth to 3000 feet AGL for aircraft conducting IFR operations at Westchester County Airport, White Plains, NY.

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 significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
