Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
This action establishes Class E airspace at Scobey, MT. A newly developed Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at the Scobey Airport has made this action necessary. Class E 700-feet and 1,200-feet controlled airspace, above the surface of the earth is required to contain aircraft executing procedures in the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). The effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled airspace for IFR operations at Scobey Airport, Scobey, MT.

On July 23, 2001, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by establishing Class E airspace at Scobey, MT, in order to provide a safer IFR environment at Scobey Airport, Scobey, MT (66 FR 38223). This amendment established Class E5 700-feet and 1,200-feet controlled airspace at Scobey, MT, to contain IFR aircraft operating in the Scobey terminal area. A newly developed Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at the Scobey Airport have made this action necessary. Interested parties were invited to participate in the rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) establishes Class E 700-feet and 1,200-feet airspace at Scobey, MT, in order to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Scobey Airport. A newly developed Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at the Scobey Airport have made this action necessary. This amendment provides Class E5 airspace at Scobey, MT, to enhance safety and efficiency of IFR flight operations in the Scobey terminal area. The FAA establishes Class E airspace where necessary to contain aircraft transitioning between the terminal and en route environments. This rule is designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under IFR at the Scobey Airport and between the terminal and en route transition stages.
The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. Class E airspace areas extending upward 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 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.Start List of Subjects
