Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 202 / Tuesday, October 20, 2015 / Rules and Regulations Section II: Subsequent Moving Average of Lift Cycles per Hour TIS Subsequent moving average calculations are performed on the MRS assembly at intervals of 50 hour TIS after the first moving average calculation. Subtract the total number of lift cycles performed during the first 50-hour TIS interval used in the previous moving average calculation from the total number of lift cycles performed on the MRS assembly during the previous 300 hours TIS. Divide this result by 250. The result will be the next or subsequent moving average calculation of lift cycles per hour TIS. Section III: Sample Calculation for Subsequent 50 Hour TIS Intervals Assume the total number of lift cycles for the first 50 hour TIS interval used in the previous moving average calculation = 450 lift cycles and the total number of lift cycles for the previous 300 hours TIS = 2700 lift cycles. The subsequent moving average of lift cycles per hour TIS = (2700 ¥ 450) divided by 250 = 9 lift cycles per hour TIS. Issued in Fort Worth, Texas, on October 4, 2015. Lance T.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 238001 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 Trego Wakeeney Airport, Wakeeney, KS. History On June 25, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to propose Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Trego Wakeeney Airport, Wakeeney, KS, (80 FR 36495). The airport name is corrected in the airspace description from Sheridan Municipal Airport to Trego Wakeeney Airport. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 63425 Order 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1.

FAA Order 7400.9Z 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 establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.0-mile radius of Trego Wakeeney Airport, Wakeeney, KS, to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures for IFR operations at the airport. The correct airport name is noted in the airspace description, changing it from Sheridan Municipal Airport. 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 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. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ paragraph 311a.

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 
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 Trego Wakeeney Airport, Wakeeney, 
KS.

History

    On June 25, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to propose Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Trego Wakeeney 
Airport, Wakeeney, KS, (80 FR 36495). The airport name is corrected in 
the airspace description from Sheridan Municipal Airport to Trego 
Wakeeney Airport. 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 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015, 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.

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 document. FAA Order 7400.9Z 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 establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 6.0-mile radius of Trego Wakeeney Airport, 
Wakeeney, KS, to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach 
Procedures for IFR operations at the airport. The correct airport name 
is noted in the airspace description, changing it from Sheridan 
Municipal Airport.

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 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.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures'' paragraph 311a. This airspace action is

[[Page 63426]]

not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental 
impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exists that warrant 
preparation of an environmental assessment.
