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 Procedure to Gardner Municipal Airport, KS. This notice will 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 designated as surface areas are published in Paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9N, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 16, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of the same Order. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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. Therefore, this regulation—(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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Thursday, August 4, 2005 the FAA proposes to amend part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E 
airspace at Gardner, KS (70 FR 44868). The proposal was to establish a 
Class E5 airspace area to bring Gardner, KS airspace into compliance 
with FAA directives. Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the 
proposals to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were 
received.

The Rule

    This notice amends 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 Procedure to Gardner Municipal Airport, KS. This notice will 
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 designated as surface areas are published in 
Paragraph 6002 of FAA Order 7400.9N, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 16, 
2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. Class E 
airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface 
of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of the same Order. The 
Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.
    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. 
Therefore, this regulation--(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 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 the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
since it contains aircraft executing instrument approach procedures to 
Gardner Municipal Airport.
