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 amends Class D airspace and Class E airspace at Cape Cod Coast Guard Air Station, Falmouth, MA. History On June 21, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as an extension at Cape Cod Coast Guard Air Station, Falmouth, MA, (81 FR 40215) Docket No. FAA–2016– 5444 as the Otis TACAN has been decommissioned, requiring airspace reconfiguration. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the geographic coordinates of the BOGEY LOM were incorrect. This action makes the correction. Class D airspace 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 part 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.

The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace designated as an extension at Cape Cod Coast Guard Air Station, Falmouth, MA, realigning the segment extensions from the 4.4mile radius of the airport to 6 miles northeast, 6 miles southeast, 7 miles southwest, and 6 miles northwest of the airport. Additionally, this action notes adjustment of the geographic coordinates of the above airport, as well as Falmouth Airpark, Barnstable Municipal Airport–Boardman/Polando Field, Chatham Municipal Airport, Martha’s Vineyard Airport, and corrects the BOGEY LOM navigation aid, to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. Also, this action recognizes the name change of Cape Cod Coast Guard Air Station, (formerly OTIS ANGB), and Martha’s Vineyard Airport, (formerly Martha’s Vineyard Municipal Airport). rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD 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. 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.

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 amends Class D airspace and Class E airspace at Cape Cod Coast 
Guard Air Station, Falmouth, MA.

History

    On June 21, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class D airspace and 
Class E airspace designated as an extension at Cape Cod Coast Guard Air 
Station, Falmouth, MA, (81 FR 40215) Docket No. FAA-2016-5444 as the 
Otis TACAN has been decommissioned, requiring airspace reconfiguration. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the 
geographic coordinates of the BOGEY LOM were incorrect. This action 
makes the correction.
    Class D airspace 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 part 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 designated as an extension at Cape Cod 
Coast Guard Air Station, Falmouth, MA, realigning the segment 
extensions from the 4.4-mile radius of the airport to 6 miles 
northeast, 6 miles southeast, 7 miles southwest, and 6 miles northwest 
of the airport. Additionally, this action notes adjustment of the 
geographic coordinates of the above airport, as well as Falmouth 
Airpark, Barnstable Municipal Airport-Boardman/Polando Field, Chatham 
Municipal Airport, Martha's Vineyard Airport, and corrects the BOGEY 
LOM navigation aid, to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. 
Also, this action recognizes the name change of Cape Cod Coast Guard 
Air Station, (formerly OTIS ANGB), and Martha's Vineyard Airport, 
(formerly Martha's Vineyard 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.
