Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
This action amends Class E5 airspace at Parsons, TN. The Beech River Regional Airport is being constructed at Parsons, TN. As a result, airspace must be established to contain the Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Runway (RWY) 19 Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) to Beech River Regional Airport. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain the SIAP.

On February 25, 2005, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by amending Class E5 airspace at Parsons, TN, (70 FR 9257). This action provides adequate Class E5 airspace for IFR operations at Parsons, TN, Beech River Regional Airport. Designations for Class E are published in FAA Order 7400.9M, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The class 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 E5 airspace at Parsons, TN.
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
