SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Aug 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 updates the description of the Class C airspace area at Syracuse Hancock International Airport, NY. On March 28, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice proposing to remove a cutout from the description of the Syracuse Hancock International Airport, NY, Class C surface area (81 FR 17113), FR Doc. 2016–06833. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. 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 modifies the Syracuse Hancock International Airport Class C airspace area by removing a cutout from the Class C surface area. The cutout excluded the airspace within a 0.75nautical mile radius of the former Michael Field/Onondaga Flight School Airport. The sole purpose of the exclusion was to allow aircraft to operate freely to and from the airport without the need to contact air traffic control. Since the former airport is now permanently closed, the purpose for the exclusion no longer exists; therefore, the FAA is removing the words ‘‘. . . excluding that airspace within a 0.75mile radius of Michael Field/Onondaga Flight School Airport . . .;’’ as well as the words ‘‘Michael Field/Onondaga Flight School Airport, NY (lat. 43°10′45″ N., long. 76°07′29″ W.),’’ from the Class C airspace description. E:\FR\FM\15AUR1.SGM 15AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 157 / Monday, August 15, 2016 / Rules and Regulations 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 part 71.1. The Class C airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD 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. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act, and its agency implementing regulations in FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ regarding categorical exclusions for procedural actions at paragraph 5–6.5a which categorically excludes from full environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points. Since this action does not change the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the Class C airspace area, and only amends the Syracuse Hancock International Airport, NY, Class C airspace by removing a cutout from the Class C surface area that had been incorporated to accommodate operations at the former Michael Field/ Onondaga Flight School Airport which is now permanently closed, this airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAAO 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, this action has been reviewed for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis, and it is VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Aug 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

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 updates the description of the Class C airspace area at Syracuse 
Hancock International Airport, NY.

History

    On March 28, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice proposing to remove a cutout from the description of the 
Syracuse Hancock International Airport, NY, Class C surface area (81 FR 
17113), FR Doc. 2016-06833. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal. No comments were received.

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 modifies the Syracuse Hancock International Airport Class C 
airspace area by removing a cutout from the Class C surface area. The 
cutout excluded the airspace within a 0.75-nautical mile radius of the 
former Michael Field/Onondaga Flight School Airport. The sole purpose 
of the exclusion was to allow aircraft to operate freely to and from 
the airport without the need to contact air traffic control. Since the 
former airport is now permanently closed, the purpose for the exclusion 
no longer exists; therefore, the FAA is removing the words ``. . . 
excluding that airspace within a 0.75-mile radius of Michael Field/
Onondaga Flight School Airport . . .;'' as well as the words ``Michael 
Field/Onondaga Flight School Airport, NY (lat. 43[deg]10'45'' N., long. 
76[deg]07'29'' W.),'' from the Class C airspace description.

[[Page 53913]]

    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 part 71.1. The Class 
C 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 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, and its agency 
implementing regulations in FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: 
Policies and Procedures'' regarding categorical exclusions for 
procedural actions at paragraph 5-6.5a which categorically excludes 
from full environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate 
or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting 
points. Since this action does not change the boundaries, altitudes, or 
operating requirements of the Class C airspace area, and only amends 
the Syracuse Hancock International Airport, NY, Class C airspace by 
removing a cutout from the Class C surface area that had been 
incorporated to accommodate operations at the former Michael Field/
Onondaga Flight School Airport which is now permanently closed, this 
airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant 
environmental impacts. In accordance with FAAO 1050.1F, paragraph 5-2 
regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, this action has been reviewed 
for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically 
excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring 
further analysis, and it is determined that no extraordinary 
circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental 
assessment.
