ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: This action amends Class E airspace at Orangeburg, SC, to accommodate the additional airspace needed for the Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed for Orangeburg Municipal Airport. This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also makes a minor adjustment to the geographic coordinates of the airport. Effective 0901 UTC, October 20, 2011. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rmajette on DSK89S0YB1PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:17 Jul 22, 2011 Jkt 223001 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. Lists of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

DATES: Effective date: 0901 UTC, October 20, 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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 



History



    On April 19, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 

notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace for Mobridge, 

SD, creating additional controlled airspace at Mobridge Municipal 

Airport (76 FR 21828) Docket No. FAA-2011-0134. 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 

Mobridge Municipal Airport, Mobridge, SD. This action is necessary for 

the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Geographic 

coordinates are also being updated 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. 

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 amends controlled airspace for Mobridge Municipal Airport, 

Mobridge, SD.
