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.

The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending Class E airspace at St. Louis, MO, adding additional controlled airspace at Spirit of St. Louis Airport, St. Louis, MO, for the safety and management of IFR operations. This action also makes minor adjustments to the geographic coordinates for the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, St. Louis VORTAC, and the Foristell VORTAC. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On July 31, 2009, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace at St. Louis, 
MO, reconfiguring controlled airspace at Spirit of St. Louis Airport, 
St. Louis, MO (74 FR 38146, Docket No. FAA-2009-0541). Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 
were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
6005 of FAA Order 7400.9T signed August 27, 2009, and effective 
September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 
71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be 
published subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending Class E airspace at St. Louis, MO, adding 
additional controlled airspace at Spirit of St. Louis Airport, St. 
Louis, MO, for the safety and management of IFR operations. This action 
also makes minor adjustments to the geographic coordinates for the 
Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, St. Louis VORTAC, and the 
Foristell VORTAC.
    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.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes 
the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation 
Programs, describes in more

[[Page 53404]]

detail the scope of the agency's authority. 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 airspace necessary to 
ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This 
regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends 
controlled airspace at Spirit of St. Louis Airport, St. Louis, MO.
