ACTION: Airworthiness standards:
DOCUMENT ACTION: Final rule.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Canby, MN
EFFECTIVE DATES: 0901 UTC, April 15, 2003.
This action establishes Class E airspace at Canby, MN. An area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) has been developed for Myers Field, Canby, MN. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing this approach. This action establishes an area of controlled airspace for Myers Field.
Class E airspace,
On Monday, September 29, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR
part 71 to establish Class E airspace at Canby, MN (68 FR 55914). The
proposal was to establish controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth to contain
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in controlled airspace during portions of the terminal operation and while transiting between the enroute and terminal environments.
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. 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 7400.9L dated September 2, 2003, and effective September 16, 2003, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at Canby, MN, to accommodate aircraft executing instrument flight procedures into and out of Myers Field. The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
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.
