Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is required to contain the IAP and for Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations to the extent practical, therefore, the FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish additional Class E5 Airspace at Williamsport, PA. The controlled airspace at Williamsport does not provide adequate airspace to support this new approach, thus this action, which provides the required controlled airspace. Designations for Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the Earth are published in FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007 effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Agency Findings The regulations adopted herein will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among various level of government. Therefore, it is determined that this final rule does not have VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:42 Oct 29, 2007 Jkt 214001 federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. 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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator, Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of the authority as it establishes controlled airspace at Williamsport Hospital, Williamsport, PA. Administration Order 7400.9R, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, effective September 15, 2007, is amended as follows: Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth. * * * * * AEA PA E5 Williamsport, PA [Amended] Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport, Williamsport, PA (Lat. 41°14′31″ N., long. 76°55′18″ W.)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Direct Final Rule Procedure

    The FAA anticipates that this regulation will not result in adverse 
or negative comment, and, therefore, issues it as a direct final rule. 
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. 
Unless a written adverse or negative comment or a written notice of 
intent to submit an adverse or negative comment is received within the 
comment period, the regulation will become effective on the date 
specified above. After the close of the comment period, the FAA will 
publish a document in the Federal Register indicating that no adverse 
or negative comments were received and confirming the effective date. 
If the FAA receives, within the comment period, an adverse or negative 
comment, or written notice of intent to submit such a comment, a 
document withdrawing the direct final rule will be published in the 
Federal Register, and a notice of proposed rulemaking may be published 
with a new comment period.

Comments Invited

    Although this action is in the form of a direct final rule, and was 
not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking, interested persons are 
invited to comment on this rule by submitting such written data, views, 
or arguments as they may desire. Communications should identify both 
docket numbers and be submitted in triplicate to the address specified 
under the caption ADDRESSES. All communications received on or before 
the closing date for comments will be considered, and this rule may be 
amended or withdrawn in light of the comments received.
    Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the rule that might 
suggest a need to modify the rule. Factual information that supports 
the commenter's ideas and suggestions is extremely helpful in 
evaluating the effectiveness of this action and determining whether 
additional rulemaking action would be needed. All comments submitted 
will be available, both before and after the closing date for comments, 
in the Rules Docket for examination by interested persons. Those 
wishing the FAA to acknowledge receipt of their comments submitted in 
response to this rule must submit a self-addressed, stamped postcard on 
which the following statement is made: ``Comments to Docket No. FAA-
2005-22489; Airspace Docket No. 05-AEA-017.'' The postcard will be date 
stamped and returned to the commenter.

The Rule

    This amendment to title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E airspace at Du Bois, PA providing controlled 
airspace required to support the new RNAV GPS helicopter point in space 
(PinS) approach at Du Bois Regional Medical Center. A new RNAV/GPS 
Copter 350 Point in Space (PinS) Special IAP at the Du Bois Regional 
Medical Center has been developed. The current Class E Airspace at 
nearby Du Bois Airport will not encompass this adjacent IAP, therefore, 
the FAA is amending title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 
71 Class E5 Airspace at Du Bois, PA. Controlled airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is required for the 
protection of the IAP and for Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations 
that serve the Du Bois Regional Medical Center. This action provides 
that adequate controlled airspace. Designations for Class E airspace 
areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the 
earth are published in FAA Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007, 
effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 71.1. The Class E Airspace designations listed in this 
document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Agency Findings

    The regulations adopted herein will not have substantial direct 
effects on the States, on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among various levels of government. Therefore, it is 
determined that this final rule does not have federalism implications 
under Executive Order 13132.
    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. 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, when promulgated, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority.

[[Page 61300]]

    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it establishes controlled airspace at Du Bois, PA.
