History

On Wednesday, February 25, 2004, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by establishing a Class E airspace area at Paola, KS (69 FR 8583). The FAA has developed an Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 03, ORIGINAL SIAP and an RNAV (GPS) RWY 21, ORIGINAL SIAP to serve Miami County Airport, Paola, KS. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to accommodate the SIAPs. The proposal was to establish a Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Paola, KS. 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, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 2, 2003, and effective September 16, 2003, 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 establishes a Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Paola, KS. This action provides controlled airspace to accommodate aircraft executing newly developed SIAPs serving Miami County Airport, Paola, KS. 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 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
