The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to support new standard instrument approach procedures developed at Orangeburg Municipal Airport, Orangeburg, SC. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Orangeburg NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach, and for continued safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates for the airport are being adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 



History



    On March 7, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 

notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace at Orange 

Municipal Airport, Orangeburg, SC (76 FR 12298) Docket No. FAA-2010-

1325. 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 amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 

part 71 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 

the surface to support new standard instrument approach procedures 

developed at Orangeburg Municipal Airport, Orangeburg, SC. Airspace 

reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the 

Orangeburg NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach, and for continued 

safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic 

coordinates for the airport are being adjusted to coincide with the 

FAA's aeronautical database.

    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 that authority 

as it amends Class E airspace at Orangeburg, SC.
