The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with RULES The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Livermore Municipal Airport, Livermore, CA, to accommodate IFR aircraft executing new ILS LOC standard instrument approach procedures at the airport, and adds the airport name and geographic coordinates to the airspace designation. Also, this action corrects a typographic error in the regulatory text of the Class D airspace area by correcting the word ‘iport’ to ‘Airport’. 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) 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 Livermore Municipal Airport, Livermore, CA.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: This action amends existing Class D and Class E airspace at 
Idaho Falls, ID, by changing the name of the airport to Idaho Falls 
Regional Airport, and adjusting the geographic coordinates of the 
airport. This action also adds additional Class E airspace necessary to 
accommodate aircraft using new Area Navigation (RNAV) Required 
Navigation Performance (RNP) standard instrument approach procedures at 
Idaho Falls Regional Airport. This improves the safety and management 
of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

DATES: Effective date, 0901 UTC, August 25, 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: 

History

    On February 17, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend controlled airspace at Idaho 
Falls, ID (76 FR 9266). 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 Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 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 71.1. The Class D and Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order. With the exception of editorial changes, 
this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.

[[Page 28307]]

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by amending Class D and Class E airspace by changing the 
airport name from Fanning Field to Idaho Falls Regional Airport, and 
adjusts the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with 
the FAA's Aeronautical Products Office. Also, existing Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Idaho Falls 
Regional Airport is modified to accommodate aircraft using new RNAV 
(RNP) standard instrument approach procedures. 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) 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 Idaho Falls Regional Airport, Idaho 
Falls, ID.
