14 CFR Part 71

[Airspace Docket No. 01-ANM-18]


Modification of Class E Airspace, Hailey, ID

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This action modifies Class E airspace at Friedman Memorial 
Airport, Hailey, ID. Newly developed Area Navigation (RNAV) Special 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at the Friedman Memorial 
Airport made this action necessary. Additional Class E 700-feet and 
1,200-feet controlled airspace, above the surface of the earth is 
required to contain aircraft executing the RNAV Z RWY 31 Global 
Positioning System (GPS) 31R Special SIAP at Friedman Memorial Airport. 
The intended effect of this action is to provide adequate controlled 
airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Friedman 
Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID.

EFFECTIVE DATE: 0901 UTC, August 8, 2002.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On February 21, 2002, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of 
Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E 
airspace at Hailey, ID, in order to provide a safer IFR environment at 
Friedman Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID (67 FR 7981). This amendment 
provides additional Class E2 Surface Area controlled airspace at 
Hailey, ID to contain aircraft conducting instrument flight operations 
at Friedman Memorial Airport. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in the rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments 
on the proposal. No comments were received.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 
CFR part 71) modifies Class E airspace at Hailey, ID, in order to 
provide adequate controlled airspace for IFR operations at Friedman 
Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID. This amendment modifies Class E 700 and 
1,200 foot airspace at Hailey, ID, to enhance safety and efficiency of 
IFR flight operations in the Hailey, ID, terminal area. The FAA 
establishes Class E airspace where necessary to contain aircraft 
transitioning between the terminal and en route environments. This rule 
is designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable 
airspace and to promote safe flight operations under IFR at the 
Friedman Memorial Airport and between the terminal and en route 
transition stages.
    The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot 
reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North 
American Datum 83. 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 7400.9J 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 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. 
It, therefore, (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.
