Proposed Establishment of Temporary Restricted Areas R-2509E, R-2509W, and R-2509N; Twentynine Palms, CA; Withdrawal, 46851 [2016-16922]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 138 / Tuesday, July 19, 2016 / Proposed Rules The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Napa County Airport, Napa, CA, by removing an irregular shaped area located approximately 20 miles southwest of the airport. This airspace area is discontinuous from the airspace surrounding Napa County Airport and is not necessary to support IFR operations. This proposal also would update the airport geographic coordinates to lat. 38°12′48″ N., long. 122°16′51″ W., to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. 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 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. ehiers on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Environmental Review List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

The proposed new temporary restricted areas would support live fire activities including anti-tank weapons, mortars, and artillery, as well as Unmanned Aircraft Systems, fixed wing, and rotary wing training activities conducting close air support and live ordnance delivery.
