Background

Federal Register Document 99-32347, Airspace Docket No. 99-ASO-19, published on December 14, 1999, (64 FR 69631), amends Class D airspace at Eglin AFB, FL. Errors were discovered in the legal description, describing the Class D airspace area. One word, “of” has been changed to “to”, and the word “east” has been inserted to more clearly describe the airspace boundaries. These actions correct the errors.

Designations for Class D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 5000 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 D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Need for Correction

As published, the final rule contains errors which incorrectly describe the geographical boundaries of the Class D airspace area. Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the legal description for the Class D airspace area at Eglin AFB, FL, incorporated by reference at § 71.1, 14 CFR 71.1, and published in the Federal Register on December 14, 1999, (64 FR 69631), is corrected by making the following correcting amendment.
