In 1999, the United States Navy vacated NAS Barbers Point under the mandates of the Base Realignment and Closure Act. The airport was renamed Kalaeloa, John Rogers Field on September 9, 1999. The existing legal description for the Honolulu International Airport Class E5 airspace area still refers to NAS Barbers Point. This rule amends that description to reflect the correct name of Kalaeloa, John Rogers Field. It does not change the dimensions, configuration, or operating requirements of the affected airspace.

Class E5 airspace is published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9J, Airpsace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 31, 2001 and effective September 16, 2002, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E5 airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in this Order.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations amend the Class E5 airspace for Honolulu.

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 no 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 would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
