ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Rule This action establishes Class D airspace at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA. A contract Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) is being established at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA, which will meet criteria for Class D airspace. Class D airspace is required when the ATCT is open, and to contain and protect Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and other Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action would establish Class D airspace extending upward from the surface to 2,500 feet Mean Sea Level (MSL) within a 4.5 nautical mile radius of the airport. EFFECTIVE DATE: 0901 UTC, January 18, 2007. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on PROD1PC61 with RULES This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class D airspace at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA. An Airport Traffic Tower (ATCT) is being established at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA, which will meet criteria for Class D airspace. 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). Adoption of the Amendment History On November 13, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations part 71 (CFR part 71) to establish Class D airspace at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA, (71FR 66144). An ATCT is being contracted at Castle Airport, and Class D airspace is required during the hours the ATCT is open. Class D controlled airspace is necessary for the safety of aircraft executing SIAPs and other IFR operations at Castle Airport. Class D airspace will be effective during specified dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will, thereafter, be published in the Airport/Facility Directory. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rule making VerDate Aug<31>2005 proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class D airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D airspace designations listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. 15:47 Dec 13, 2006 Jkt 211001 In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: I PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, CLASS B, CLASS C, CLASS D, AND CLASS E AIRSPACE AREAS; ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The non-compulsory reporting points AYZOL, BORAN, EMSOW, and TIBOY 
are in use by the Anchorage Center on a daily basis and are needed for 
the separation of air traffic.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing four high altitude reporting points, AYZOL, 
BORAN, EMSOW, and TIBOY in Alaska. The FAA has determined these 
reporting points are needed to support the NAS. This action improves 
air safety and facilitates the management of air traffic in Alaska. 
Since this action involves the designation of reporting points already 
in use by ATC, no additional impact will be incurred by the public. 
Therefore, I find that notice or public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) 
is impractical and contrary to the public interest.
    Alaskan High Altitude Reporting Points are published in paragraph 
7005 of FAA Order 7400.9P September 1, 2006, and effective September 
15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The 
Alaskan High Altitude Reporting Points 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. 
Therefore, this proposed 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) 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    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.
