Amendment of Class D and E Airspace, and Revocation of Class E 
Airspace; Troy, AL

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: This action amends Class D and E airspace, and removes Class E 
airspace designated as an extension at Troy Municipal Airport at N. 
Kenneth Campbell Field (formerly Troy Municipal Airport), Troy, AL. The 
Troy VHF Omnidirectional Radio Range (VOR) has been decommissioned, 
therefore Class E extension airspace is no longer needed, and new 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed, requiring 
adjustments in Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at the airport. This action enhances 
the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) 
operations at the airport. This action also updates the geographic 
coordinates of the airport and recognizes the name change of the 
airport.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, November 10, 2016. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual 
revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

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

[[Page 65277]]

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 amends Class D and Class E airspace at Troy Municipal 
Airport at N. Kenneth Campbell Field, Troy, AL.

History

    On June 21, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Troy 
Municipal Airport at N. Kenneth Campbell Field, formerly Troy Municipal 
Airport, Troy, AL, (81 FR 40213) Docket No. FAA-2014-0726, as new 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed requiring 
airspace redesign. Additionally, Class E airspace designated as an 
extension to Class D surface area would be removed due to the 
decommissioning of the Troy VOR and cancellation of the VOR approaches. 
The geographic coordinates of the airport would be amended to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database. 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 D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A 
dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and 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 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A 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 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 7.6-mile radius of Troy Municipal Airport at N. 
Kenneth Campbell Field and within 2-miles each side of a 070[deg] 
bearing from the airport to 11.5-miles northeast of the airport, and 
within 2-miles each side of a 253[deg] bearing from the airport to 
11.3-miles southwest of the airport. Additionally, Class E airspace 
designated as an extension to Class D surface area is removed due to 
the decommissioning of the Troy VOR and cancellation of the VOR 
approaches. The geographic coordinates of the airport are amended to 
coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. Also, this action 
recognizes the name change of Troy Municipal Airport at N. Kenneth 
Campbell Field (formerly Troy 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. 
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.
