The Proposal

This action proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E airspace at Cheyenne, WY. This proposal would revise the Class E airspace at Cheyenne, WY, by providing additional controlled airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface of the earth. The additional airspace is necessary for the safety of aircraft being sequenced by ATC through this airspace from the en route environment and to/from Denver's metropolitan area airports.

Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9M, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the 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. 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 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
