SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

An internal evaluation determined that the legal description for the Class D airspace at Pompano Beach, FL and Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, FL contains reference to a line made up of radials off the Pompano Beach VOR, which has been decommissioned. This action will amend the legal description by replacing the reference to a line made up of a VOR radial, with a line now made up of geographic coordinates. Designations for Class D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in Paragraphs 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9N, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 16, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Since this action has no impact on the users of the airspace in the vicinity of the Pompano Beach Airpark or Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are not necessary.

The Rule

This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) amends Class D airspace at Pompano Beach, FL and Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, FL.

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 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.
