The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) by amending the Class E airspace 
area at Salyer Farms, CA. The development of a Special GPS SIAP at 
Salyer Farms Airport has made this proposal necessary. The intended 
effect of this proposal is to provide adequate Class E airspace for 
aircraft executing the Special GPS RWY 32 SIAP at Salyer Farms, 
Corcoran, CA. Class E airspace area designations are published in 
Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9D dated September 4, 1996, and 
effective September 16, 1996, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document 
would be published subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 10034; 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 proposed rule would not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
