Amendment of Class E Airspace; Lakeland, FL, 47061-47062 [2011-19166]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 150 / Thursday, August 4, 2011 / Rules and Regulations Adoption of the Amendment rmajette on DSK89S0YB1PROD with RULES The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends the Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as surface area at Columbus Lawson AAF, Columbus, GA by removing the reference to the Columbus Metropolitan Airport Class C airspace from the description. The volume of air traffic has decreased at Columbus Metropolitan Airport, therefore, Class C airspace has been removed. The geographic coordinates for the Lawson AAF are being adjusted to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airports. 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 controlled airspace at Columbus Lawson AAF, Columbus, GA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On May 24, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace at Lakeland 
Linder Regional Airport, Lakeland, FL (75 FR 30047) Docket No. FAA-
2011-0005. Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the 
FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA 
found that the geographic coordinates of Lake Linder Regional Airport, 
Plant City Municipal Airport, and Winter Haven's Gilbert Airport needed 
to be adjusted. This action makes these updates. Except for editorial 
changes, and the changes noted above, this rule is the same as 
published in the NPRM.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of 
FAA

[[Page 47062]]

Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 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 surface airspace to support new standard 
instrument approach procedures developed at Lakeland Linder Regional 
Airport, Lakeland, FL. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the 
decommissioning of the Plant City NDB and cancellation of the NDB 
approach, and for continued safety and management of IFR operations at 
the airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of 
Lake Linder Regional, Plant City Municipal, and Winter Haven's Gilbert 
Airports 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 Lakeland, FL.
