SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth. History On Tuesday, April 19, 2011, the FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register to amend Class E airspace to accommodate new SIAPS at Yakutat Airport, Yakutat, AK (76 FR 21832). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Three comments were received. One commenter noted that the proposed rule incorrectly referred to the Yakutat VORTAC: The correct navigational aid is the Yakutat VOR/DME. The rule has been changed to correct that error. The second commenter suggested that the portion of the proposed Class E airspace overlaying Canadian airspace should be excluded. The FAA has found merit in this and has adjusted the airspace to exclude that area outside of U.S. airspace. The third commenter noted that a portion of the airspace overlies offshore airspace beyond 12 NM from the shoreline (Control 1487L) which should be revised to reflect the change in the 1,200 ft. airspace. The FAA agrees and that change is being incorporated in a separate offshore airspace rulemaking. The FAA also noted that two of the longitudes used in the geographic coordinates for the airspace description were incorrectly rounded. This action corrects that error. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On April 19, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace for Hearne, 
TX, creating controlled airspace at Hearne Municipal Airport (76 FR 
21831) Docket No. FAA-2011-0214. 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 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 part 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface for new standard instrument approach procedures at 
Hearne Municipal

Airport, Hearne, TX. This action is necessary for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport.
    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, 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 that authority 
as it establishes controlled airspace for Hearne Municipal Airport, 
Hearne, TX.
