Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
On June 27, 2012, the FAA published in the
Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, 6005 and 6006, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9V dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order.
This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E surface airspace and Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D, at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, Bozeman, MT, adjusting the radii to be in alignment with the Class D airspace area. This action also updates the airport name from Bozeman, Gallatin Field Airport, to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport for existing Class D and E airspace areas. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations.
The FAA has determined 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)
The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, “Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,” paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
