Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; confirmation of effective date.

SUMMARY:

This action confirms the new effective date for the establishment of Class D and E4 airspace at Olive Branch, MS and the amendment of Class E5 airspace at Memphis, TN. The construction of a new Federal contract tower with a weather reporting system was delayed; therefore, the effective date of the establishment of Class D and E4 airspace and amendment of Class E5 airspace was also delayed.

DATES:

The effective date of April 15, 2004, published on February 3, 2004, (69 FR 5009), and subsequently delayed indefinitely (69 FR 8555), is now 0901 UTC, May 12, 2005.

History

Docket No. 16534; Airspace Docket No. 03-ASO-19, published in the Federal Register on February 3, 2004 (69 FR 5009), established Class D and E4 airspace at Olive Branch, MS and amended Class E5 airspace at Memphis, TN. The construction of a federal contract tower with a weather reporting system at Olive Branch Airport made this action necessary. This action was originally scheduled to become effective on April 15, 2004; however, an unforeseen delay in beginning construction on the tower required the effective date of this action to be delayed. Construction is now nearing completion.

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. 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) 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.
