Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Williamsburg, KY, 62398-62399 [06-8847]

Download as PDF 62398 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 206 / Wednesday, October 25, 2006 / Proposed Rules The Proposal Paragraph 5000 Class D Airspace. The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to revise the Class D airspace area. Utilizing a 6-nautical-mile Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) arc from the Phoenix VORTAC eastward to Gilbert Road, the proposed Class B airspace, in association with this proposed Class D airspace area revision, would provide a similar general aviation airspace transition area between approximately 3.17 and 5 nautical miles wide beneath its floor of 2,700 feet MSL. This area encompasses a small portion of the Mesa Falcon Field Airport Class D airspace area. In order to accommodate general aviation transitioning north and south below the proposed Class B airspace, and provide an eastern visual boundary and the widest possible corridor of VFR airspace under 2,700 feet MSL between the 6-nautical-mile DME arc and Gilbert Road, it is proposed to revise the Class D airspace to extend only as far west as Gilbert Road; thus allowing aircraft to remain below Class B airspace and outside and to the west of Class D airspace during its hours of operation. Class D airspace areas are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9P dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in this Order. * * List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace at 
Williamsburg, KY. Class E airspace designations for airspace areas 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth 
are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 
16, 2006, and effective September 16, 2006, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation 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.
