SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On November 7, 2001, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 by establishing a Class E airspace area at Kayenta, AZ (66 FR 56258). Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface is needed to contain aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) RWY 02 SIAP, RNAV (GPS) RWY 20 SIAP, and a NBD SIAP at Bedard Field, Kayenta, AZ. This action will provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) RWY 02 SIAP, RNAV (GPS) RWY 20 SIAP, and a NDB SIAP to Bedard Field, Kayenta, AZ.

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 Start Printed Page 4899received. Class E airspace designations for airspace extending from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9J dated August 31, 2001, and effective September 16, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes a Class E airspace area at Kayenta, CA. The establishment of a Special RNAV (GPS) RWY 02, RNAV (GPS) RWY 20 SIAP has made this action necessary. The effect of this action will provide adequate airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) RWY 02, RNAV (GPS) RWY 20, and NDB SIAP at Bedard Field, Kayenta, 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 128660; (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.
