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 amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to ensure that required controlled airspace exists from the 6.5-mile radius of the airport to 12.3 miles northeast of the airport, 11.2 miles southwest of the airport, and 7 miles southwest of the Hook Field NDB navigation aid, to contain aircraft executing new standard instrument approach procedures at Middletown Regional/Hook Field Airport, Middletown, OH. This action enhances the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates of the Middletown Regional/Hook Field airport, formerly known as Hook Field Airport, and the Hook Field NDB are also updated 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. 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.

This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On November 30, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace for the 
Middletown, OH, area, creating additional controlled airspace at 
Middletown Regional/Hook Field Airport (77 FR 71364) Docket No. FAA-
2012-0651. 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 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, 
and effective September 15, 2012, 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to ensure that required controlled airspace exists 
from the 6.5-mile radius of the airport to 12.3 miles northeast of the 
airport, 11.2 miles southwest of the airport, and 7 miles southwest of 
the Hook Field NDB navigation aid, to contain aircraft executing new 
standard instrument approach procedures at Middletown Regional/Hook 
Field Airport, Middletown, OH. This action enhances the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates 
of the Middletown Regional/Hook Field airport, formerly known as Hook 
Field Airport, and the Hook Field NDB are also updated 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. 
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

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.
