SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: History On August 22, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace at Jacksonville, NC (76 FR 52291). 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 for Albert J. Ellis Airport needed to be adjusted. This action makes that adjustment. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6002 and 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E surface area airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Jacksonville, NC, to provide the controlled airspace required to accommodate the new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed for Albert J. Ellis Airport. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. This action also adjusts the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the FAAs 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:38 Oct 28, 2011 Jkt 226001 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

[[Page 67058]]

History

    On July 21, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace for Evansville, 
IN, creating controlled airspace at Evansville Regional Airport (76 FR 
43615) Docket No. FAA-2011-0429. 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 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 creating additional Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface for new standard instrument approach 
procedures at Evansville Regional Airport, Evansville, IN. This action 
is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the 
airport.
    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 Evansville Regional Airport, 
Evansville, IN.
