The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to modify Class E airspace at Pierre, SD, by modifying Class E airspace for the Pierre Regional Airport. Controlled airspace extending upward from the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing instrument approach procedures. 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, and Class E airspace areas designated as surface areas are published in Paragraph 6002, of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 16, 2005, 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 establishment body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore this, proposed 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 proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to modify 
Class E airspace at Pierre, SD, by modifying Class E airspace for the 
Pierre Regional Airport. Controlled airspace extending upward from the 
surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing instrument 
approach procedures. 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, and Class E airspace areas designated as surface areas are 
published in Paragraph 6002, of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 
2005, and effective September 16, 2005, 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 establishment body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore this, proposed 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 proposed rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
