SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On June 9, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace area at Susanville, CA (68 FR 34340). Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface is needed to contain aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) RWY 29 and RNAV (GPS)-A SIAPs to Susanville Municipal Airport. This action will provide adequate controlled airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) RWY 29 and RNAV (GPS)-A SIAPs to Susanville Municipal Airport, Susanville, CA.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking, proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments to the proposal were received. Class E airspace designations for airspace extending from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9K, dated August 30, 2002, and effective September 16, 2002, 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 Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies the Class E airspace area at Susanville, CA. The establishment of a RNAV (GPS) RWY 29 and RNAV (GPS)-A SIAPs to Susanville Municipal Airport has made this action necessary. The effect of this action will provide adequate airspace for aircraft executing the RNAV (GPS) RWY 29 and RNAV (GPS)-A SIAPs to Susanville Municipal Airport, Susanville, CA.

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