Confirmation of Effective Date

The FAA published this direct final rule with a request for comments in the Federal Register on February 14, 2008 (73 FR 8593), Docket No. FAA 2007-0309; Airspace Docket No. 07-AEA-20. 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 June 5, 2009. No adverse comments were received, and this notice confirms that effective date.
