SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

On March 16, 2007, the geographical position coordinates for Rafael Hernandez Airport, Aguadilla, PR, changed from lat. 18°29′38″N, long. 67°07′59″W to lat. 18°29′42″N, long. 67°07′46″W. This action corrects the geographical position coordinates of the airport.

This rule becomes effective on the date specified in the Effective Date section. Since this action will have no impact on aircraft operating in the vicinity of Rafael Hernandez Airport, Aguadilla, PR, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are not necessary. Class E airspace areas designated as surface areas and Class E airspace areas designated as airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraphs 6002 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9P, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, 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 the Order.

The Rule

This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E2 and E5 airspace at Rafael Hernandez Airport, Aguadilla, PR.

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 criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
