SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

Current Class D airspace as described in Airspace Designations and Reporting Points Document 7400.9L dated September 02, 2003, and effective September 16, 2003, has been found to be confusing and is difficult to interpret. This clarifies that airspace description.

The Rule

This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by clarifying the description of the Class D airspace at Ogden, Hill AFB. The current airspace description is difficult to interpret. This modification does not change the current boundaries or the use of the affected airspace.

Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9L dated September 02, 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 this Order.

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. 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 11013; 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 would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
