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 E surface area at Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA; and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Algona Municipal Airport, Algona, IA; Ankeny Regional Airport; Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA; Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA; Creston Municipal Airport, Creston, IA; Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Grinnell Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA; Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA; and Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA. History On September 23, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), (81 FR 65583) Docket No. FAA–2016– 8833, to amend Class E surface area at E:\FR\FM\10JAR1.SGM 10JAR1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 6 / Tuesday, January 10, 2017 / Rules and Regulations Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA; and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Algona Municipal Airport, Algona, IA; Ankeny Regional Airport; Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA; Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA; Creston Municipal Airport, Creston, IA; Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Grinnell Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA; Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA; and Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA. 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 E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 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 E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES 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 modifies: Class E surface area airspace within a 4.2-mile radius (increased from the 4mile radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA; Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface: By removing the 10-mile extension northwest of Algona Municipal Airport, Algona, IA, and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.1-mile radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA, and removing the extensions 9.3 miles northeast and 11.1 miles north of the airport; Within a 7.2-mile radius (increased from the 6.8-mile radius) of Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA, with an extension to the northeast from the 7.2mile radius to 9.2 miles, and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:51 Jan 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.5-mile radius) of Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA, and correcting city designation from Belle Plane to Belle Plaine; By removing the 11-mile extension south of Creston Municipal Airport, Creston, IA; By removing the 7.4-mile extensions south and northwest of Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.6-mile radius) of Grinnell Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA, and updating the geographical coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; By adding an extension to the north from the 6.4-mile radius to 9.8 miles of Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA; And within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.3-mile radius) of Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Mapleton NDB, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV procedures at the airport and for the safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2869 Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5.a. 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.

History On March 7, 2016, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) (81 FR 11694), Docket No. FAA–2016–3193, to amend VOR Federal airway V–506 by lowering the floor of Class E controlled airspace due to the establishment of a lower GNSS MEA on a segment of the route. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. One comment was received. Discussion of Comment The comment received generally asked whether there would be any safety issues by lowering the floor of Class E airspace? The FAA finds the proposed modification is in accordance with the criteria and guidelines in FAA Order 7400.2, and it does not introduce new or increased safety risk into the National Airspace System, including Visual Flight Rules (VFR) operations and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations. For VFR operations, the modified Class G (uncontrolled) airspace stratum would extend upward from the surface to 7,499 feet mean sea level (MSL). The maximum terrain and obstruction elevation in this area is 5,300 feet MSL. The depth of the Glass G airspace stratum will therefore remain at least 2,199 feet, which exceeds the minimum airspace necessary for VFR cruise flight over non-congested areas in accordance with 14 CFR 91.119. It should also be noted, VFR flight is permitted within Class E airspace, with the only additional or different requirement (from Class G airspace) being increased cloud clearance and visibility minima. Additionally, no safety issues or increased risk would be introduced for E:\FR\FM\10JAR1.SGM 10JAR1

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies:
    Class E surface area airspace within a 4.2-mile radius (increased 
from the 4-mile radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA;
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface:
    By removing the 10-mile extension northwest of Algona Municipal 
Airport, Algona, IA, and updating the geographic coordinates of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.1-mile 
radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA, and removing the 
extensions 9.3 miles northeast and 11.1 miles north of the airport;
    Within a 7.2-mile radius (increased from the 6.8-mile radius) of 
Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA, with an extension to the 
northeast from the 7.2-mile radius to 9.2 miles, and updating the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.5-mile

miles of Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA;
    And within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.3-mile 
radius) of Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
the Mapleton NDB, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of 
RNAV procedures at the airport and for the safety and management of the 
standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these 
airports.

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 5-6.5.a. 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.
