Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Technical amendment.


In a final rule published in the Federal Register on November 9, 1993, an error was made in the airspace description for Restricted Area R-2510A, El Centro, CA. Specifically, the action inadvertently omitted the reference to nautical miles in the boundaries section of the description. This action corrects that error.


Effective date 0901 UTC, April 7, 2010.

On November 9, 1993, the FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register (58 FR 27527), Airspace Docket No. 92-AWP-15 entitled “Alteration and Subdivision of Restricted Area R-2510A; El Centro, CA”. That action inadvertently omitted the nautical miles reference in the description. The impact of this action was not apparent until recently, when the U.S. Navy requested clarification of the airspace description. Without reference to nautical miles, the description reads in statute miles. However, the FAA's National Aeronautical Navigation Services office currently charts the airspace in nautical miles. Since this is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
