Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Final rule.


This action amends Class D airspace at Marietta Dobbins ARB (NAS Atlanta), GA. It has been determined that the Marietta Dobbins ARB Class D airspace area be amended to provide containment of instrument approach procedures within controlled airspace. Adequate controlled airspace should be established for the Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) to Runways (RWYs) 11 and 29. This action would amend the lateral limits of the existing Class D airspace by adding Class D airspace extensions from the 5.5-mile radius to 6.9 miles to the east and west of Marietta Dobbins ARB.

On April 29, 2002, the FAA proposed to amend Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by amending Class D airspace at Marietta Dobbins ARB (NAS Atlanta), GA, (67 FR 20919). Class D airspace designations for 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 designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were received.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class D airspace at Marietta Dobbins ARB (NAS Atlanta), GA.

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.
