Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
This action modifies Class E airspace at Kenton, OH, and revokes Class E airspace at Bellefontaine, OH. Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPS) have been developed for a new airport at Bellafontaine, OH, which has been named Bellefontaine Regional Airport. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing these approaches. This action modifies existing controlled airspace for Hardin County Airport, and revokes existing controlled airspace for the old Bellefontaine Municipal Airport.

On Monday, March 31, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to modify Class E airspace at Kenton, OH, and revoke Class E airspace at Bellefontaine, OH, (68 FR 15388). The proposal was to modify controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in controlled airspace during portions of the terminal operation and while transiting between the enroute and terminal environments. 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. 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 7400.9K dated August 30, 2002, and effective September 16, 2002, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order.
This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies Class E airspace at Kenton, OH, and revokes Class E airspace at Bellefontaine, OH. This will accommodate aircraft executing instrument flight procedures. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
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, proposed 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.Start List of Subjects
