Confirmation of Effective Date

The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on October 30 (72 FR 61293) amending Class E airspace to support a Special Copter Point in Space Instrument Approach Procedure into the Centre Community Hospital (PS57). 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 December 20, 2007. No adverse comments were received, and thus this notice confirms that this direct final rule will become effective on that date.
