Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
This action amends Class D and E5 airspace at Goldsboro, NC. As a result of an evaluation, it has been determined a modification should be made to the Goldsboro, NC, Class D and E5 airspace areas to contain the Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN) or Instrument Landing System (ILS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) to Seymour Johnson AFB. Additional surface area airspace and controlled airspace extending upward 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain the SIAP.Start Printed Page 32254

On April 13, 2004, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by amending Class D and E5 airspace at Goldsboro, AL, (69 FR 19359). This action provides adequate Class D and E5 airspace for IFR operations at Seymour Johnson AFB. Designations for Class D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth and Class E airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraphs 5000 and 6005 respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9L, dated September 2, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and E designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
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.
This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class D and E5 airspace at Goldsboro, NC.
The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore, (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.Start List of Subjects
