Amendment of Class E Airspace; Montgomery, AL, Correction, 52218-52219 [2012-21162]

Download as PDF 52218 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 168 / Wednesday, August 29, 2012 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 discusses 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 Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, Bozeman, MT. 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 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On June 27, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to modify controlled airspace at Lewistown, MT (77 FR 38226). 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 6002 and 6005, respectively, 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 that Order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E surface airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Lewistown Municipal Airport, Lewistown, MT, to accommodate IFR aircraft executing RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations. The FAA has determined 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 PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 52219 regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On July 31, 2012, the FAA published a final rule, technical

for Montgomery, AL, by recognizing the name change to Prattville-Grouby 
Field Airport (formerly Autauga Airport) (77 FR

45238). After publication, the FAA found that the geographic 
coordinates of Maxwell AFB and Wetumpka Municipal Airport need to be 
adjusted to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. This 
action makes the administrative adjustment that does not affect the 
altitude, boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace. 
Therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 
unnecessary.
    The Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 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.

Correction to Final Rule

    Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the 
geographic coordinates for Maxwell AFB and Wetumpka Municipal Airport, 
as listed in the airspace designation of the Class E airspace, 
Montgomery, AL, as published in the Federal Register of July 31, 2012,
