AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action modifies Class E airspace at Greenville, MI. Area 
Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP's) have 
been developed for Greenville Municipal Airport. Controlled airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth 
is needed to contain airspace executing these approaches. This action 
increases the radius of the existing controlled airspace for Greenville 
Municipal Airport.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 0901 UTC, June 13, 2002.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Denis C. Burke, Air Traffic Division,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Monday, January 7, 2002, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 
71 to modify Class E airspace at Greenville, MI (67 FR 706). The 
proposal was to modify controlled airspace extending upward from 700 
feet 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 7400.9J dated August 31, 2001, and effective September 16, 2001, 
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.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies Class E airspace at 
Greenville, MI, to accommodate airspace executing instrument flight 
procedures into and out of Greenville Municipal Airport. 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.
