The Proposal

This action would amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E airspace at Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, WY. Additional Class E controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using a new LPV approach procedure with LNAV/VNAV minimums. This airspace revision would improve the safety of IFR aircraft executing the new LPV approach procedure at Jackson Hole Airport, Jackson, WY. Controlled airspace is necessary where there is a requirement for IFR services, which include arrival, departure, and transitioning to/from the terminal or en route environment. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this 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. Therefore, this proposed 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 proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
