The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on February 21, 2008 (73 FR 9445) to modify Class E airspace and restore previously published airspace descriptions at Wilkes-Barre, PA. After publication, it was discovered that the airport reference point coordinates of the Wyoming Valley Medical Center and the Community Medical Center Airports had minor errors. This action corrects those errors.

Confirmation of Effective Date

The FAA uses the direct final rulemaking procedure for a noncontroversial 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 April 10, 2008. It further advised that a confirmation docket would be published in the Federal Register confirming the effective date. This docket completes that requirement. No adverse comments were received, and thus this notice confirms that effective date.
