SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On Tuesday, August 26, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to establish Class D airspace at Ramona, CA. (68 FR 51205). The proposal was to establish a Class D surface area within a 4-mile radius of the airport from the surface up to, but not including, 3,800 feet mean sea level (MSL). This action was due to the construction of a non-federal contract tower and to accommodate aircraft executing instrument flight procedures into and out of Ramona Airport.

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 D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9L dated September 2, 2003, and effective September 16, 2003, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class D airspace at Ramona, CA, to accommodate aircraft executing instrument flight procedures into and out of Ramona Airport. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. This action also corrects the coordinates for Ramona published in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (68 FR 51205).

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.
