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. rmajette on DSK89S0YB1PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from BIS and that the availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited. Entities are placed on the Entity List on the basis of certain sections of part 744 (Control Policy: End-User and End-Use Based) of the EAR. The End-User Review Committee (ERC), composed of representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, when appropriate,Treasury, makes all decisions regarding additions to, removals from, or other changes to the Entity List. The ERC makes all decisions to add an entry to the Entity List by majority vote and all decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote.

Removal of Class D and E Airspace; Willow Grove, PA



AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.



ACTION: Final rule.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------



SUMMARY: This action removes the Class D and Class E airspace areas at 

Willow Grove, PA. The Willow Grove Naval Air Station (NAS) has closed 

and therefore controlled airspace associated with the airport is being 

removed. The FAA is taking this action to ensure the efficient use of 

airspace within the National Airspace System.



DATES: Effective date: 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



FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Fornito, Airspace Specialist, 

Operations Support Group, Eastern Service Center, Air Traffic 

Organization, Federal Aviation Administration, P.O. Box 20636, Atlanta, 

Georgia 30320; telephone (404) 305-6364.



SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 



The Rule



    This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 

part 71 to remove Class D and E airspace at Willow Grove, PA. The 

closing of the Willow Grove NAS and cancellation of all standard 

instrument approach



[[Page 44259]]



procedures eliminates the need of controlled airspace. Since this 

action eliminates the impact of controlled airspace on users of the 

National Airspace System in the vicinity of Willow Grove, PA, notice 

and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 

Paragraphs 5000, 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 

15, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by 

reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations 

listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

    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. 

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, would 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 removes controlled airspace at Willow Grove, PA.
