FAA Order 7400.9Y lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by referencing Restricted Area R–4001C in the regulatory text of the Class D airspace area at Martin State Airport, MD, adding the words ‘‘and Restricted Area R–4001C, which is continuously active up to 10,000 feet AGL’’. This is an administrative change amending the description for Martin State Airport, PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 23709 Baltimore, MD, to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database, and does not affect the boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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.

The geographic coordinates of the airport are updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database, and a longitudinal point of the airspace boundary extending from 1,200 feet above the surface is corrected from ‘‘long. 112°29′00″W., to ‘‘long 110°29′00″W.’’. This does not affect the boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S. C. 553(b) is unnecessary. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    In a review of the airspace, the FAA found the airspace description 
for Martin State Airport, Baltimore, MD, Class D Airspace, in FAA Order 
7400.9Y, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, did not match the 
FAA's charting information. This administrative change coincides with 
the FAA's aeronautical database.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Y, airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2014, and effective September 15, 
2014. FAA Order 7400.9Y is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this final rule. FAA Order 7400.9Y lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by referencing Restricted Area R-4001C in the regulatory text 
of the Class D airspace area at Martin State Airport, MD, adding the 
words ``and Restricted Area R-4001C, which is continuously active up to 
10,000 feet AGL''. This is an administrative change amending the 
description for Martin State Airport, Baltimore, MD, to be in concert 
with the FAAs aeronautical database, and does not affect the 
boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, 
notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 further clarifies the description of controlled airspace at 
Martin State Airport, Baltimore, MD.
