SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSKB9S0YB1PROD with RULES History On September 3, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to modify controlled airspace at Portland, OR (75 FR 54057). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the geographic coordinates for the airports and the Corvallis VOR/DME needed to be adjusted. This action makes the adjustment. With the exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Portland International Airport, to accommodate IFR aircraft executing the LOC/DME SIAPs at the airport. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. The geographic coordinates for Portland International Airport and McMinnville Municipal Airport, as well as the Corvallis VOR/DME, will be adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s National Aeronautical Navigation Services. 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) 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 this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Nov 26, 2010 Jkt 223001 Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On September 3, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to modify controlled airspace at 
Portland, OR (75 FR 54057). Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to 
publication, the FAA found the geographic coordinates for the airports 
and the Corvallis VOR/DME needed to be adjusted. This action makes the 
adjustment. With the exception of editorial changes, and the changes 
described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 
2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface, at Portland International Airport, to accommodate 
IFR aircraft executing the LOC/DME SIAPs at the airport. This action is 
necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. The 
geographic coordinates for Portland International Airport and 
McMinnville Municipal Airport, as well as the Corvallis VOR/DME, will 
be adjusted to coincide with the FAA's National Aeronautical Navigation 
Services.
    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) 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 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 U.S. 
Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses 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 that authority as it establishes 
additional controlled airspace at Portland International Airport, 
Portland, OR.
