Amendment of Class C Airspace; Burbank, CA, 57518-57519 [2015-23994]

Download as PDF 57518 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 185 / Thursday, September 24, 2015 / Rules and Regulations The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class C airspace at Portland International Airport, Portland, OR, by adjusting the geographic coordinates to reflect recent survey data. This rule also adjusts the Evergreen North-South Airpark, Vancouver, WA, formerly Evergreen Airport, and Pearson Field, Vancouver, WA, formerly Pearson Airpark. 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. 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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Lists of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    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 modifies the air traffic service route structure in the 
north central United States to maintain the efficient flow of air 
traffic.

History

    During a biennial review of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport's 
airspace the FAA identified that the airport's name had been changed to 
Bob Hope Airport and the geographic coordinates were incorrect. This 
action updates the name and geographic coordinates to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database for the respective Class C airspace area.
    Class C airspace designations are published in paragraph 4000 of 
FAA Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class C 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Z, airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this final rule. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends the Class C airspace within which all aircraft operators 
are subject to operating rules and equipment requirements of Part 91 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (see 14 CFR 91.130). The name of the 
Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport is changed to Bob Hope Airport and 
the geographic coordinates are updated. This rule is meant to insure 
pilots do not confuse instructions provided to them by Air Traffic 
Control.
    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.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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 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.

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.
