On Thursday, March 11, 2010, a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was published in the Federal Register to establish Class D airspace and modify existing Class E airspace at Columbus, GA. Due to a decrease in air traffic volume at Columbus Metropolitan Airport a less restrictive Class D airspace would be established with specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The existing Class E surface area would be modified to be coincident with the newly established Class D airspace.
In consideration of the need for the effective dates to coincide for the revocation of Class C airspace and the establishment of Class D airspace at Columbus Metropolitan Airport, Columbus, GA, action is being taken to withdraw the aforementioned legislative mandate. Therefore, action to establish Class D airspace in Columbus, GA, is premature and unnecessary at this time.Start List of Subjects
