Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
This final rule will modify Class E airspace at Trinidad, CO. New Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Position System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) have been developed at Perry Stokes Airport, Trinidad, CO, making it necessary to increase the area of controlled airspace. This additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is necessary to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft executing these new SIAPs.

On November 6, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend Federal Aviation Regulations 14 CFR part 71 to modify Class E airspace at Trinidad, CO (68 FR 62761-62762). The proposal was to modify controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth to contain IFR operations within controlled airspace during the terminal phase and when transitioning to/from the en route environments.
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rule making proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 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 that Order.
This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 will modify Class E airspace at Trinidad, CO, to accommodate aircraft executing newly developed IFR RNAV SIAPs at Perry Stokes Airport. The new RNAV SIAPs make it necessary to increase the area of controlled airspace. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth will be established to contain IFR aircraft executing these new SIAPs.
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.Start List of Subjects
