This rule sets the effective date for a rulemaking that has already been through the public comment process. Seeking prior public comments on the effective date is impracticable, as well as contrary to the public interest in the orderly promulgation and implementation of this rule. In consideration of the foregoing, the FAA announces the effective date of 14 CFR part 43, Amendment 43–40, published July 14, 2005. The amendments require that the maintenance, preventive maintenance, and alterations be performed in accordance with a Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA) between the United States and Canada and associated Maintenance Implementation Procedures (MIP). The MIP was signed and entered into force on August 31, 2006; accordingly, the amendments became effective on that date. Issued in Washington, DC, on November 22, 2006. John M.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action changes the name of the Eastman-Dodge County 
Airport to Heart of Georgia Regional Airport and establishes Class D 
airspace at Eastman, GA. On October 9, 1995, the Eastman-Dodge County 
Airport Authority adopted a name change for the airport. A non-Federal 
contract tower with a weather reporting system has been constructed at 
Heart of Georgia Regional Airport. Therefore, the airport meets 
criteria for Class D airspace. Class D surface area airspace is 
required when the control tower is open to contain Standard Instrument 
Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and other Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) 
operations at the airport. This action establishes Class D airspace 
extending upward from the surface to and including 2,500 feet MSL 
within a 4.1-mile radius of the airport.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 0901 UTC, January 18, 2000. The Director of the Federal 
Register approves this incorporation by reference under 1 CFR part 51, 
subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of 
conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On August 2, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by changing the name of the 
Eastman-Dodge City Airport and establishing Class D airspace at 
Eastman, GA (71 FR 43678). This action provides adequate Class D 
airspace for IFR operations at Heart of Georgia Regional Airport. 
Designations for Class D Airspace are published in FAA Order 7400.9P, 
effective September 16, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 71.1. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document 
will be published subsequently in the Order.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. 
No comments objecting to the proposal were received.

The Rule

    This amendment to part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 
CFR part 71) changes the name of the Eastman-Dodge County Airport to 
Heart of Georgia Regional Airport and establishes Class D airspace at 
Eastman, GA.
    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.
