Amendment of United States Area Navigation (RNAV) Route Q-35; Western United States, 11414-11415 [2016-04739]

Download as PDF 11414 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 43 / Friday, March 4, 2016 / Rules and Regulations Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, 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. 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, updating the geographic coordinates for Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Harvey Municipal Airport, Harvey, ND; Rolla Municipal Airport, Rolla, ND; Minot AFB, Minot ND; and the Devils Lake VOR/DME to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This is an administrative change amending the description for Harvey Municipal Airport and Rolla Municipal Airport to be in concert with the FAA’s 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. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:44 Mar 03, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 5–6.5.a. 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.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Department of Transportation is issuing a final rule to extend the smoking ban in DOT’s regulation to include all charter (i.e., nonscheduled) flights where a flight attendant is a required crewmember. The revised regulation would comport with 49 U.S.C. 41706, which was revised in 2012, to ban smoking on charter flights where a flight attendant is a required crewmember. This final rule also explicitly bans the use of electronic cigarettes (‘‘e-cigarettes’’) on all flights where smoking is banned. The Department interprets the existing regulation to prohibit e-cigarette use, but is codifying this interpretation. DATES: The rule is effective April 4, 2016.

Workie, Assistant General Counsel, Office of the Assistant General Counsel for Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings, U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., Washington, DC 20590, 202–366–9342, 202–366–7152 (fax), robert.gorman@dot.gov or blane.workie@dot.gov (email). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (Pub. L. 106–181) was signed into law on April 5, 2000. Section 708 of this statute, ‘‘Prohibitions Against Smoking on Scheduled Flights’’ (codified as 49 U.S.C. 41706), banned passengers from smoking on all flights in scheduled passenger interstate and intrastate air transportation, and directed the Secretary of Transportation to prohibit smoking in foreign air transportation (with an exception process for foreign carriers). Shortly thereafter, the Department of Transportation (‘‘DOT,’’ or ‘‘the Department’’) amended its rule on smoking aboard aircraft, 14 CFR part 252, to implement section 41706. Under part 252, the smoking of tobacco products is banned on all scheduled PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11415 passenger flights of air carriers, and on all scheduled passenger flight segments of foreign air carriers between points in the United States and between the United States and foreign points. Under part 252, foreign governments may request and obtain a waiver from DOT provided that an alternative smoking prohibition resulting from bilateral negotiations is in effect. Further, part 252 was amended to permit carriers operating single-entity charters to allow smoking throughout the aircraft, but also required a no-smoking section for each class of service (e.g., first class) on other charter flights where smoking is not banned. Throughout this preamble, we use the terms ‘‘air carrier’’ and ‘‘foreign air carrier’’ as defined in 49 U.S.C. 40102, in which an ‘‘air carrier’’ is a citizen of the United States undertaking to provide air transportation, and a ‘‘foreign air carrier’’ is a person, not a citizen of the United States, undertaking to provide foreign air transportation. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Electronic Cigarettes and Other Nicotine Delivery Systems On September 15, 2011, the Department published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in which it proposed to amend its existing smoking rule (part 252) to explicitly ban the use of e-cigarettes on all flights covered by that rule (i.e., all flights of U.S. air carriers in scheduled passenger interstate, intrastate and foreign air transportation and all scheduled flight segments of foreign air carriers in, to, or from the United States).1 E-cigarettes typically contain a cartridge or chamber, which contain an atomizer or heating element, a battery and a liquid solution. Most often e-cigarettes contain liquid nicotine but they may contain other chemicals. When a user inhales, the heating element aerosolizes the liquid solution. This produces an aerosol,2 which requires an inhalation and exhalation similar to smoking cigarettes. In addition to nicotine, e-cigarette aerosol can contain heavy metals, ultrafine particulates that can be inhaled deep into the lungs, and cancer-causing agents like acrolein. Secondhand 1 Smoking of Electronic Cigarettes on Aircraft, Department of Transportation, Office of the Secretary, 14 CFR part 252, [Docket No. DOT–OST– 2011–0044], RIN 2105–AE06, 76 FR 57008 (Sept. 15. 2011). 2 Our NPRM and many commenters referred to the exhaled product of e-cigarettes as a ‘‘vapor.’’ It is more accurate to refer to the product as an aerosol. See Grana et al., E-Cigarettes: A Scientific Review, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/ PMC4018182/. Products that create both vapors and aerosols are included in the Department’s definition of ‘‘smoking.’’ E:\FR\FM\04MRR1.SGM 04MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    A final rule was published in the Federal Register on January 14, 
2016 (81 FR 1877), FR Doc. 2015-33095, that reversed the order of 
points listed in the legal description of RNAV Route Q-35 as published 
in FAA Order 7400.9, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points. 
Subsequent to publication, the FAA found that the FAA docket number for 
this document was inadvertently mistyped. This action corrects the FAA 
docket number.
