Amendment of Restricted Areas R-5801 and R-5803; Chambersburg, PA, 18104-18105 [2012-7311]

Download as PDF 18104 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 59 / Tuesday, March 27, 2012 / Rules and Regulations mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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 amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to support new standard instrument approach procedures developed at Piseco Airport, Piseco, NY. This action also adjusts the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. This enhances the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Except for the changes noted above, this action is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. 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 establishes Class E airspace at Piseco Airport, Piseco, NY.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background The time of designation for R–5801 and R–5803 currently reads ‘‘0800 to 1600 EST, Monday–Friday.’’ Since these restricted areas lie completely within the Eastern Time zone, it is unnecessary to specify ‘‘EST’’ in the descriptions. The hours 0800 to 1600 are in effect year round regardless of time of year. The use of ‘‘EST’’ in the current description leads to confusion about the time of designation during that part of the year when daylight saving time is in effect. The intended time of designation for the restricted areas is 0800–1600 local time during both standard time and daylight time periods. The Rule This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 to remove ‘‘EST’’ from the time of designation in the descriptions of restricted areas R–5801 and R–5803, Chambersburg, PA. The time of designation is amended to read ‘‘0800 to 1600 local time, Monday–Friday.’’ This change does not alter the current usage of the restricted areas. Accordingly, since this action is an administrative change, and does not alter the dimensions or utilization of the restricted areas, I find that notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Section 73.58 of Title 14 CFR part 73 was republished in FAA Order 7400.8U, effective February 16, 2012.

The NC Coastal Land Trust ‘‘Cyclist Goin Coastal’’ Ride Committee on behalf of the North Carolina Department of Transportation has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulation of the US 70 Alfred Cunningham Bascule Bridge across the Trent River, mile 0.0, at New Bern, NC. The route of the cycle ride crosses the bridge and the requested deviation is to accommodate a safe and efficient passage across the bridge for the cyclists. To facilitate this event, the draw of the bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position for one-half hour; from 8 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The vertical clearance for this bridge in the closed position is 14 feet at Mean High Water and unlimited in the open position. The operating regulations are set forth in 33 CFR 117.843(a) which states that during this time period the bridge shall open on signal. Vessels that can pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The Coast Guard will inform the waterway users of the closure through our Local Notice to Mariners and other appropriate local media to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. Most vessel traffic utilizing this bridge consists of recreational boaters. This closure is for a small duration of time, therefore, only a small number of boaters may be affected by the temporary closure. There are no alternate routes to the Neuse River from the Trent River. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: February 29, 2012. Waverly W.

Amendment of Restricted Areas R-5801 and R-5803; Chambersburg, PA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: This action makes a minor editorial change to the time of 
designation for restricted areas R-5801 and R-5803, Chambersburg, PA, 
to remove the abbreviation ``EST.'' This amendment does not change the 
dimensions of, or activities conducted within, the restricted areas.

DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, May 31, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Gallant, Airspace, Regulations 
and ATC Procedures Group, Office of Airspace Services, Federal Aviation 
Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; 
telephone: (202) 267-8783.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The time of designation for R-5801 and R-5803 currently reads 
``0800 to 1600 EST, Monday-Friday.'' Since these restricted areas lie 
completely within the Eastern Time zone, it is unnecessary to specify 
``EST'' in the descriptions. The hours 0800 to 1600 are in effect year 
round regardless of time of year. The use of ``EST'' in the current 
description leads to confusion about the time of designation during 
that part of the year when daylight saving time is in effect. The 
intended time of designation for the restricted areas is 0800-1600 
local time during both standard time and daylight time periods.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 73 to remove ``EST'' from the time of designation in the 
descriptions of restricted areas R-5801 and R-5803, Chambersburg, PA. 
The time of designation is amended to read ``0800 to 1600 local time, 
Monday-Friday.'' This change does not alter the current usage of the 
restricted areas.
    Accordingly, since this action is an administrative change, and 
does not alter the dimensions or utilization of the restricted areas, I 
find that notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 
unnecessary.
    Section 73.58 of Title 14 CFR part 73 was republished in FAA Order 
7400.8U, effective February 16, 2012.
    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 Department of Transportation (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

[[Page 18105]]

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 the 
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 airspace descriptions to keep them current.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, 
paragraph 311d. This action updates the technical description of 
special use airspace that does not alter the dimensions, altitudes, or 
use of the airspace. It is not expected to cause any potentially 
significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances 
exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
