History

On October 21, 2003, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rule making to modify Class E airspace at Wray, CO (69 FR 32295). New RNAV GPS SIAPs at Wray Municipal Airport, Wray, CO, make it necessary to increase the controlled airspace.

Interested parties were invited to participate on 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 Wray Municipal Airport, Wray, CO. New RNAV GPS SIAPs at Wray Municipal Airport make it necessary to increase the Class E airspace. This additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is for the containment and safety of IFR aircraft transitioning to/from the en route environment and executing these RNAV GPS SIAP procedures.

The FAA has determined that this regulation only involved 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 “signficant 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.
