SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On February 27, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise Class E airspace at Pinedale, WY, (71 FR 9740). This action would improve the safety of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft executing this new procedure at Pinedale/Ralph Wenz Field, Pinedale, WY. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The NPRM described the Wenz NDB bearings “to” the facility instead of “from” the facility, which is standard practice. This rule makes an editorial change to describe the bearings from the NDB. Except for this editorial change, this rule is the same as proposed in the NPRM.

Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9O, effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace at Pinedale, WY. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate IFR aircraft executing a new RNAV (GPS) approach procedure at Pinedale/Ralph Wenz Field, Pinedale, WY.

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.
