Additionally, any person may obtain a copy of this notice by submitting a request to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Office of Air Traffic Airspace Management, ATA– 400, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591, or by calling (202) 267–8783. Communications must identify both docket numbers for this notice. Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRM’s should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking (202) 267–9677, to request a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal This notice proposes to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing a Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Gardner Municipal Airport, KS. A Class E airspace area overlies Gardner Municipal Airport, KS, however, its purpose and description are relative to Olathe, New Century Aircenter, KS and does not fully enclose the NDB or PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 GPS–D Instrument Approach Procedures to Gardner Municipal Airport, KS. This proposal would correct this discrepancy by establishing a Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of Gardner Municipal Airport, KS excluding that airspace within the Olathe, New Century Aircenter, KS Class D airspace. This will define airspace of appropriate dimensions to protect aircraft departing and executing instrument approach procedures to Gardner Municipal Airport and bring the airspace area into compliance with FAA directives. The area would be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9M, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. This proposed rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign to use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority since it would contain aircraft executing E:\FR\FM\04AUP1.SGM 04AUP1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 149 / Thursday, August 4, 2005 / Proposed Rules instrument approach procedures to Gardner Municipal Airport. ACTION: List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (Air). The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, CLASS B, CLASS C, CLASS D, AND CLASS E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIRWAYS; ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1. The authority citation for part 71 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g); 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of Federal Aviation Administration Order 7400.9M, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, is amended as follows: Notice of proposed rulemaking. SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish new Class E airspace at Deering, AK. Four new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being published for the Deering Airport. There is no existing Class E airspace to contain aircraft executing the new instrument procedures at Deering, AK. Adoption of this proposal would result in the establishment of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Deering, AK. DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 19, 2005.

The Proposal

    This notice proposes to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation 
Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by establishing a Class E airspace area 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Gardner Municipal 
Airport, KS. A Class E airspace area overlies Gardner Municipal 
Airport, KS, however, its purpose and description are relative to 
Olathe, New Century Aircenter, KS and does not fully enclose the NDB or 
GPS-D Instrument Approach Procedures to Gardner Municipal Airport, KS. 
This proposal would correct this discrepancy by establishing a Class E 
airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 
6.4-mile radius of Gardner Municipal Airport, KS excluding that 
airspace within the Olathe, New Century Aircenter, KS Class D airspace. 
This will define airspace of appropriate dimensions to protect aircraft 
departing and executing instrument approach procedures to Gardner 
Municipal Airport and bring the airspace area into compliance with FAA 
directives. The area would be depicted on appropriate aeronautical 
charts.
    Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above 
the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.9M, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in 
the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    This proposed rulemaking is promulgated under the authority 
described in subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that 
section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign to 
use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the 
efficient use of airspace. This proposed regulation is within the scope 
of that authority since it would contain aircraft executing
