On December 28, 2005, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise Class E airspace at Kalispell, MT (71 FR 16250). This action would provide additional controlled airspace for the safety of IFR aircraft executing the published ILS approach procedures to the newly extended runway at Kalispell/Glacier Park International Airport, Kalispell, MT. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
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.
This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising Class E airspace at Kalispell, MT. Additional controlled airspace is necessary for the safety of IFR aircraft executing the published ILS approach procedures to the newly extended runway at Kalispell/Glacier Park International Airport, Kalispell, MT.
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
