History

On November 25, 2002 a notice proposing to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by providing additional Class D airspace extending two miles along the southeast and northwest localizer courses for Westchester County Airport up to but not including 3,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) was published in the Federal Register (67 FR 70564-70565). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceedings by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments to the proposal were received. The rule is adopted as proposed. The coordinates for this airspace document are based on North American Datum 83. Class D airspace area designations for airspace extending upward from the surface are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9K, dated August 30, 2002, and effective September 16, 2002. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published in the order.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) extends Class D airspace from the surface of the earth up to but not including 3,000 feet MSL an additional two miles along the southeast and northwest localizer courses for Westchester County Airport, White Plains, NY. The extension of Class D airspace will provide coverage for aircraft conducting IFR operations to the airport.

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 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 significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
