Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Final rule.


This action removes the Class E4 Airspace at Columbus Lawson Army Air Field (AAF), Columbus, Ga. This Class E4 airspace was associated with a Nondirectional Radio Beacon (NDB) Runway (RWY) 03 Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP), which has been cancelled, as RWY 03-21 has been permanently closed.


Effective Date: 0901 UTC, October 25, 2007. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

The NDB RWY 03 SIAP was cancelled due to the permanent closure of RWY 03-21. The cancellation and runway closure, therefore, requires the removal of Class E4 airspace. This rule becomes effective on the date specified in the “Effective Date” section. Since this action will eliminate the impact of controlled airspace on aircraft in the vicinity of Columbus Lawson AAF, GA, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are not necessary. Designations for Class E airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6004 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 01, 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 the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 removes Class E4 airspace at Lawson AAF, Columbus, Ga.

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. 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 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
