History

On December 17, 2004, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations part 71 (CFR part 71) by modifying Class E airspace at Burns, OR, (69 FR 75490). The proposed action would provide additional controlled airspace to accommodate the new RNAV GPS SIAP at the Burns Municipal Airport. 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 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 part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that order.

The Rule

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 revises Class E airspace at Burns, OR, by providing additional controlled airspace for aircraft executing the new RNAV GPS SIAP at Burns Municipal Airport. This additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is necessary for the containment and safety of IFR aircraft executing this SIAP procedure and transitioning to/from the en route environment.

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 the regulations 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 Start Printed Page 20048traffic 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.
