The Twinkletown Airport, within the Memphis, TN, Class E5 airspace area, has closed. Therefore, the Memphis, TN, Class E5 legal description must be amended to reflect the closure. This amendment will become effective on the date specified in the DATE section. Since this action has no impact on the users of the airspace in the vicinity of the Memphis, TN, Class E5 airspace area, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Designations for Class E are published in FAA Order 7400.9K, dated August 30, 2002, and effective September 16, 2002, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class E5 airspace at Memphis, TN.
The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 Start Printed Page 7015426, 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, when promulgated, 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
