Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
Final rule; correction.
This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Calais Regional Heliport, Calais, ME. The FAA discovered that necessary language was inadvertently omitted to the description of the airspace that excluded airspace outside of the United States.
Effective 0901 UTC, April 22, 2021. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under Title 1 Code of Federal Regulations part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 amends Class E airspace for Calais Regional Heliport, Calais, ME, by correcting the airspace description. The description is amended from `That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth within a 6-mile radius of Calais Regional Heliport' to `That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth within a 6-mile radius of Calais Regional Heliport excluding that airspace outside of the United States'. Accordingly, since this is an administrative change, and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005, of FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
Regulatory Notices and Analyses
The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It therefore: (1) Is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a “significant rule” under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures an air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
