ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action will modify Class D and E airspace at Flagstaff, AZ, to accommodate aircraft departing and arriving under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport. This action also removes Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport. This action, initiated by the biennial review of the Flagstaff airspace area, will enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport. This action also makes minor adjustments to the legal description of the airspace. DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, March 10, 2011. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR Part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:36 Dec 09, 2010 Jkt 223001 On October 6, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to remove Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area at Flagstaff, AZ and to modify the Class D and E controlled airspace at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport (75 FR 61660). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and 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 the Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to meet current standards for IFR departures and arrivals at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport, Flagstaff, AZ. This action, initiated by a biennial review of the airspace, is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. This action also makes a minor correction to the legal description for Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to coincide with the FAA’s National Aeronautical Navigation Services, and changes the description to not exclude the Sedona, AZ, Class E airspace area from this description. 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. The FAA’s authority to issue rules PO 00000 Frm 00004 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 Flagstaff Pulliam Airport, Flagstaff AZ.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sarah Heil, Fishery Management Specialist, 978–281–9257. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulations governing the summer flounder fishery are found at 50 CFR part 648. The regulations require annual specification of a commercial quota that is apportioned among the coastal states from North Carolina through Maine. The process to set the annual commercial quota and the percent allocated to each state are described in § 648.100. The final rule implementing Amendment 5 to the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Fishery Management Plan, which was published on December 17, 1993 (58 FR 65936), provided a mechanism for summer flounder quota to be transferred from one state to another. Two or more states, under mutual agreement and with the concurrence of the Administrator, Northeast Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator), can transfer or combine summer flounder commercial quota under § 648.100(d). The Regional Administrator is required to consider the criteria set forth in § 648.100(d)(3) in the evaluation of requests for quota transfers or combinations. North Carolina has agreed to transfer 1,481 lb (643 kg) of its 2010 commercial quota to Virginia. This transfer was prompted by summer flounder landings of a North Carolina vessel that was towed into Cape Charles, VA, due to mechanical problems on November 12, 2010. The Regional Administrator has determined that the criteria set forth in § 648.100(d)(3) have been met. The revised summer flounder quotas for calendar year 2010 are: North Carolina, 3,370,046 lb (1,528,627 kg); and Virginia, 2,910,411 lb (1,320,140 kg).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On October 6, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to remove Class E airspace designated as 
an extension to a Class D or E surface area at Flagstaff, AZ and to 
modify the Class D and E controlled airspace at Flagstaff Pulliam 
Airport (75 FR 61660). Interested parties were invited to participate 
in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the 
proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 
18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and 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 the Class D airspace and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to meet current 
standards for IFR departures and arrivals at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport, 
Flagstaff, AZ. This action, initiated by a biennial review of the 
airspace, is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations 
at the airport. This action also makes a minor correction to the legal 
description for Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to coincide with the FAA's National Aeronautical Navigation 
Services, and changes the description to not exclude the Sedona, AZ, 
Class E airspace area from this description.
    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. 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 Flagstaff Pulliam Airport, Flagstaff 
AZ.
