DOCUMENT ACTION: Direct final rule; request for comments.
Modification of Class E Airspace; Canby, MN
DATES: This direct final rule is effective on 0901 UTC, July 5, 2007. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 7 CFR Part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments. Comments for inclusion in the Rules Docket must be received on or before May 31, 2007.
This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR 71) by modifying Class E airspace at Canby, Myers Field, MN. Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed by Canby, Myers Field, MN. Additional controlled airspace extending upward from the surface and upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth is needed to contain aircraft executing these approaches. This action increases the area of the existing controlled airspace for Canby, Myers Field, MN.
Class E airspace,
This amendment to 14 CFR Part 71 modifies the Class E airspace area at Canby, Myers Field, MN. The radius of the Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth is expanded from within a 6.3mile radius to within a 7.4mile radius of the airport. An extension is established within 4 miles each side of the 301 bearing from the airport extending from the 7.4mile radius to 10.3 miles northwest of the airport. This modification brings the legal description of the Canby, Myers Field, MN Class E5 airspace area into compliance with FAA Orders 7400.2F and 8260.19C. Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9P, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of the same order. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order.
The Direct Final Rule Procedure
The FAA anticipates that this regulation will not result in adverse
or negative comment and, therefore, is issuing it as a direct final
rule. Previous actions of this nature have not been controversial and
have not resulted in adverse comments or objections. Unless a written
adverse or negative comment or a written notice of intent to submit an
adverse or negative comments is received within the comment period, the regulation will become effective on
the date specified above. After the close of the comment period, the FAA will publish a document in the Federal Register indicating that no adverse or negative comments were received and confirming the date on the final rule will become effective. If the FAA does receive, within the comment period, an adverse or negative comment, or written notice of intent to submit such comment, a document withdrawing the direct final rule will be published in the Federal Register, and a notice of proposed rulemaking may be published with a new comment period. Comments Invited
Interested parties are invited to participate in this rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in development reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, environmental, and energyrelated aspects of the proposal. Communications should identify both docket numbers and be submitted in triplicate to the address listed above. Commenters wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments on this notice must submit with those comments a self addressed, stamped postcard on which the following statement is made: ``Comments to Docket No. FAA200627676/Airspace Docket NO. 07AGL2.'' The postcard will be date/time stamped and returned to the commenter. Agency Findings
The regulations adopted herein will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, it is determined that this final rule doe snot have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
The FAA has determined that this regulation is noncontroversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. For the reasons discussed in the preamble, I certify that this regulation (1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and (3) if promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
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 the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority since it contains aircraft executing instrument approach procedures to Canby, Myers Field, MN.
