Confirmation of Effective Date

The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on October 26, 2006 (71 FR 62554). The FAA uses the direct final rulemaking procedure for a non-controversial rule where the FAA believes that there will be no adverse public comment. This direct final rule advised the public that no adverse comments were anticipated, and that unless a written adverse comment, or a written notice of intent to submit such an adverse comment, were received within the comment period, the regulation would become effective on January 18, 2007. No adverse comments were received, and thus this notice confirms that this direct final rule will become effective on that date.

Correction to Final Rule

In the description of the airspace contained in the direct final rule, the FAA transposed the airport name with the name of the city in the title line. In addition, the FAA has added the words “point in space” to the longitude and latitude coordinates associated with this airport. This action makes these editorial corrections, which do not change the airspace configuration. The FAA is republishing the entire airspace description.
