ACTION: Final rule. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES AGENCY: This action amends Class E Airspace at Fayette, AL, as the Fayette Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed at Richard Arthur Field. SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:38 Oct 28, 2011 Jkt 226001 This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fayette, AL to accommodate the new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed for Richard Arthur Field. The Fayette NDB has been decommissioned, and the NDB approach cancelled. The existing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is being modified for the safety and management of IFR operations. This action also updates the geographic coordinates to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database, and notes the airport’s name change PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 from Richard Arthur Field Airport to Richard Arthur Field. 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 Richard Arthur Field, Fayette, AL.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On July 25, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace at Fayette, AL 
(76 FR 44285) Docket No. FAA-2011-0559. Subsequent to publication, the 
FAA found that the geographic coordinates needed to be adjusted. This 
action makes that adjustment. 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 7400.9V dated 
August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, 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. With the 
exception of editorial changes, and the changes described above, this 
rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Fayette, AL to accommodate the new Standard 
Instrument Approach Procedures developed for Richard Arthur Field. The 
Fayette NDB has been decommissioned, and the NDB approach cancelled. 
The existing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface is being modified for the safety and management of IFR 
operations. This action also updates the geographic coordinates to be 
in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database, and notes the airport's 
name change from Richard Arthur Field Airport to Richard Arthur Field.
    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 Richard Arthur Field, Fayette, AL.
