On January 20, 2005, the FAA revoked Class D airspace at South Lake Tahoe, CA due to the closure of the Airport Traffic Control Tower. This action will establish Class E Surface Area airspace at South Lake Tahoe, CA to replace the Class D airspace, and to contain instrument procedures in controlled airspace.
Class E Surface Area airspace is published in Paragraph 6002 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 Surface Area airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in this Order.
This amendment to 14 CFR, part 71 establishes Class E Surface Area at South Lake Tahoe, CA.
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. 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 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
