DOCUMENT ACTION: Final rule.
Modification to Glendale Municipal Airport Class D Surface Area; Glendale, AZ
EFFECTIVE DATES: November 1, 2001.
This action amends the ceiling of the Glendale Municipal Airport Class D Surface Area to extend from the surface up to, but not including, 3,000 feet above Mean Sea Level (MSL). The action enhances air traffic operational safety by allowing airspace to be charted in a manner more consistent with the nature of the operations routinely conducted at Glendale Municipal Airport.
Class D airspace,
On June 5, 2001, the FAA published a document (66 FR 30117) proposing to modify the Class D airspace at Glendale Municipal Airport in Glendale, Arizona. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting comments on the proposal to the FAA. In the ensuing comment period, which closed on July 20, 2001, the FAA received no comments on the proposed action.
This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by lowering the ceiling of the Glendale Municipal Airport Class D Surface Area to extend from the surface up to, but not including, 3,000 feet above Mean Sea Level (MSL). 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 will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
Class D airspace areas are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9H, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, through September 15, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order.
