Docket ID: [Docket No. FAA-2004-17136; Airspace Docket No. 04-AGL-08]
DOCUMENT ACTION: Final rule.
Modification of Class D Airspace; Camp Douglas, WI
DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, November 25, 2004.
This action modifies Class D airspace at Camp Douglas, WI. Category E circling procedures are being used at Volk Field, Camp Douglas, WI. Increasing the current radius of the Class D airspace area will allow for a lower Minimum Descent Altitude. Controlled airspace extending upward from the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing these approach procedures. This action increases the area of the existing controlled airspace at Volk Field, Camp Douglas, WI.
Class D airspace,
On Wednesday, April 21, 2003, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 to modify Class D airspace at Camp Douglas, WI (69 FR 21447). The proposal was to modify controlled airspace extending upward from the surface of the earth to contain Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in controlled airspace.
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 D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in paragraph 5000, 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 D airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order.
The amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies Class D airspace at Camp Douglas, WI, to accommodate aircraft executing instrument flight procedures into and out of Volk 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 proposed 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.
