History

On August 11, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise Class E Airspace at Laramie, WY (71 FR 46132). This action will provide additional controlled airspace necessary Start Printed Page 29885for the safety of IFR aircraft executing a procedure turn (PT) maneuver as part of the IAP at Laramie Regional Airport. Additional airspace is also necessary to accommodate aircraft executing a new holding pattern published at Laramie Regional Airport, Laramie, 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.

Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and 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 Laramie, WY. Additional airspace is also necessary to accommodate aircraft executing a new holding pattern published at Laramie Regional Airport, Laramie, WY. Additionally, this action reflects a change in the airport name from General Brees Field to Laramie Regional Airport.

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 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.
