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. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Albany Municipal Airport, Albany, OR. Controlled airspace extends to within a 6.7-mile radius of the airport to accommodate IFR departures up to 1,200 feet above the surface; includes a small extension to the southwest to accommodate IFR arrivals below 1,500 feet above the surface; and the segment east of longitude 123° is removed, as there are no IFR operations within that area. These modifications are necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport, while preserving the navigable airspace for aviation. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 E airspace designations 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 11:51 Nov 03, 2016 Jkt 241001 number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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. 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 modifies controlled airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, and Corvallis Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR. rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES History On August 15, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register (81 FR 53962) Docket No. FAA–2015–3991, a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface airspace area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene OR, and to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Corvallis Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. On August 29, 2016, the FAA received a request from Mr. Charles West for a pictorial overlay of the airspace proposal. On September 6, 2016, the FAA provided a diagram of the proposed changes via email to Mr. West and also to Senator Jeff Merkley, Mitch T. Swecker of the Oregon Department of Aviation, and to Mary Rosenblum of the Oregon Pilots Association. No other comments were received. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 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.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 11:51 Nov 03, 2016 Jkt 241001 The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR. The Class E surface extension to the north is slightly enlarged to contain aircraft using the VOR–A approach, and the extension to the south is enlarged to contain aircraft using the RNP (RNAV) Z instrument approaches as they descend below 1,000 feet above the surface. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is reduced to the northeast and west of the airport to only that area necessary to contain IFR arrival aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface, and IFR departure aircraft, until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. The Class E airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface is removed, as this airspace area is provided by the Bend, OR, Class E En Route airspace area. Also, this action creates stand-alone Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Corvallis Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR, thereby removing reference to Corvallis Municipal Airport from the Mahlon Sweet Field Airport airspace designation. The overall Class E airspace area near Corvallis Municipal Airport is slightly reduced north, and slightly enlarged west of the airport. The geographic coordinates of these airports are updated for all Class D and Class E airspace areas. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 ‘‘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.

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 modifies controlled airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, 
Eugene, OR, and Corvallis Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR.

History

    On August 15, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register (81 
FR 53962) Docket No. FAA-2015-3991, a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) to modify Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class 
D or E surface airspace area, and Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface, at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene 
OR, and to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Corvallis Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. On 
August 29, 2016, the FAA received a request from Mr. Charles West for a 
pictorial overlay of the airspace proposal. On September 6, 2016, the 
FAA provided a diagram of the proposed changes via email to Mr. West 
and also to Senator Jeff Merkley, Mitch T. Swecker of the Oregon 
Department of Aviation, and to Mary Rosenblum of the Oregon Pilots 
Association. No other comments were received.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 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 E airspace 
designation 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

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace designated as an extension to a 
Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, 
OR. The Class E surface extension to the north is slightly enlarged to 
contain aircraft using the VOR-A approach, and the extension to the 
south is enlarged to contain aircraft using the RNP (RNAV) Z instrument 
approaches as they descend below 1,000 feet above the surface. Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is reduced to 
the northeast and west of the airport to only that area necessary to 
contain IFR arrival aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the 
surface, and IFR departure aircraft, until reaching 1,200 feet above 
the surface. The Class E airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet 
above the surface is removed, as this airspace area is provided by the 
Bend, OR, Class E En Route airspace area.
    Also, this action creates stand-alone Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface for Corvallis Municipal Airport, 
Corvallis, OR, thereby removing reference to Corvallis Municipal 
Airport from the Mahlon Sweet Field Airport airspace designation. The 
overall Class E airspace area near Corvallis Municipal Airport is 
slightly reduced north, and slightly enlarged west of the airport. The 
geographic coordinates of these airports are updated for all Class D 
and Class E airspace areas.

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 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.
