History

On Wednesday, January 14, 2004, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to modify Class E airspace at Mount Comfort, IN, revoke Class E airspace at Indianapolis-Brookside, IN, and modify the legal description at Indianapolis-Terry, IN, (69 FR 2088). The proposal was to modify the existing Class E airspace area at Mount Comfort, IN, revoke the existing Class E airspace area at Indianapolis-Brookside, IN, and modify the legal description at Indianapolis-Terry, IN. The Indianapolis Brookside Airpark has been abandoned, and the existing area of Class E airspace Start Printed Page 21405is no longer needed. Additionally, the name of the Indianapolis Terry Airport has changed.

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 7400.9L dated September 2, 2003, and effective September 16, 2003, 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.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies Class E airspace at Mount Comfort, IN, revokes Class E airspace at Indianapolis-Brookside, IN, and modifies the legal description at Indianapolis-Terry, IN. 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.
