SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: 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 removes Class E airspace at West Texas Airport, El Paso, TX. PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 3323 History On June 18, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at West Texas Airport, El Paso, TX, as the airport is now closed (80 FR 34855) Docket No. FAA–2014–1074. Additionally, the FAA identified an error in the geographical coordinates for El Paso International Airport, would be changed from (lat. 31°50′59″ N., long. 106°22′40″ W.) in the proposal to (lat. 31°48′26″ N., long. 106°22′35″ W.) (80 FR 34855). The FAA found the NPRM incorrectly listed the geographic coordinates for Biggs AAF and El Paso International Airport under the Proposal section, but was correctly noted in the airspace designation. 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 removing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at West Texas Airport, El Paso, TX. This action is necessary due to the closure of the airport; therefore controlled airspace is no longer needed. Also, the geographic coordinates for El Paso International Airport, are changed to (lat. 31°48′26″ N., long. 106°22′35″ W.), and the coordinates for Biggs AAF are changed to (lat. 31°50′58″ N., long. 106°22′48″ W.), to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical data base.

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 removes Class E airspace at West Texas Airport, El Paso, TX.

History

    On June 18, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to remove Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at West Texas Airport, 
El Paso, TX, as the airport is now closed (80 FR 34855) Docket No. FAA-
2014-1074. Additionally, the FAA identified an error in the 
geographical coordinates for El Paso International Airport, would be 
changed from (lat. 31[deg]50'59'' N., long. 106[deg]22'40'' W.) in the 
proposal to (lat. 31[deg]48'26'' N., long. 106[deg]22'35'' W.) (80 FR 
34855). The FAA found the NPRM incorrectly listed the geographic 
coordinates for Biggs AAF and El Paso International Airport under the 
Proposal section, but was correctly noted in the airspace designation. 
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 removing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at West Texas Airport, El Paso, TX. This action is 
necessary due to the closure of the airport; therefore controlled 
airspace is no longer needed. Also, the geographic coordinates for El 
Paso International Airport, are changed to (lat. 31[deg]48'26'' N., 
long. 106[deg]22'35'' W.), and the coordinates for Biggs AAF are 
changed to (lat. 31[deg]50'58'' N., long. 106[deg]22'48'' W.), to 
coincide with the FAAs aeronautical data base.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established

[[Page 3324]]

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 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures'' paragraph 5-6.5a. 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.
