PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 You may review the public docket containing the proposal, any comments received and any final disposition in person at the Dockets Office (see ADDRESSES section for address and phone number) between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. An informal docket may also be examined during normal business hours at the office of the Operations Support Group, Western Service Center, Federal Aviation Administration, 1601 Lind Ave SW., Renton, WA 98057. Background Marine Corps combat readiness depends on the continued availability of ranges and training areas that provide realistic, mission-oriented training and exercises. Marine Corps training proceeds on a continuum, from entrylevel training of individual Marines in basic military skills to large-scale exercises involving a Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF). Currently, the Marine Corps does not have sufficient range space to conduct a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) level live fire exercise. Through careful analysis and a series of studies, MCAGCC Twentynine Palms was identified as the only Marine Corps installation capable of expansion to the dimensions required to support this level of exercise. Acquisition of new lands without the requisite special use airspace (SUA) would not allow for the training events required to successfully execute this essential exercise. Consequently, a new restricted area, military operations areas (MOA) and air traffic control-assigned airspace are being developed as a critical element of the required expansion to support large scale MEB level exercises and those supporting building block training events.. The establishment of temporary restricted area R–2509E, W, and N, will substantially enhance both the capability and capacity of the MCAGCC Twentynine Palms Range and Training Areas (RTA) to conduct required training for an MEB large scale exercise. The Proposal This proposal would establish new temporary restricted areas R–2509E, R– 2509W, and R–2509N for the period from August 7 to August 26, 2017, to accommodate live fire from pistols, rifles, machine guns, anti-tank weapons, mortars, artillery, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, fixed wing, and rotary wing training activities including close air support and live ordnance delivery. This proposed temporary restricted area is required to effectively deconflict Department of Defense and all other air E:\FR\FM\23FEP1.SGM 23FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 35 / Thursday, February 23, 2017 / Proposed Rules rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS traffic from hazards associated with live fire training. Based on impacts mitigation coordinated with the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center, the maximum altitude will be FL 220 generally. However, at certain times for a period of 4 hours on 2 days of the exercise, the maximum altitude will be FL400. R–2509W would have a ceiling of 8,000 feet MSL and R–2509N would have a ceiling of 16,000 feet MSL. Supersonic flight will not be conducted as part of the above aviation training activities. The times of use for R–2509E, R– 2509W, and R–2509N would be by NOTAM, and activations of R–2509E above FL220 would have the NOTAM issued 48 hours in advance. Expected usage would be 12 hours per day for 10 days up to 16,000 feet and 16 hours per day for 6 days up to FL220. The lateral boundaries of the proposed areas would be as follows: Temporary R–2509E—Beginning at lat. 34°40′30″ N., long. 116°29′43″ W., to lat. 34°36′00″ N., long. 116°28′03″ W.; to lat. 34°31′30″ N., long. 116°26′48″ W.; to lat. 34°30′00″ N., long. 116°26′23″ W.; to lat. 34°21′35″ N., long. 116°21′38″ W.; to lat. 34°19′30″ N., long. 116°20′29″ W.; to lat. 34°17′38″ N., long. 116°19′19″ W.; to lat. 34°22′25″ N., long. 116°31′10″ W.; to lat. 34°34′17″ N., long. 116°35′52″ W.; to the point of beginning.

Excluding that airspace within a 3.4mile radius of point in space coordinates at lat. 34°25′32″ N., long. 116°36′52″ W.; surface to 1,500 feet AGL. Temporary R–2509N—Beginning at lat. 34°35′03″ N., long. 116°36′10″ W.; to lat. 34°40′30″ N., long. 116°29′43″ W.; to lat. 34°34′17″ N., long. 116°35′52″ W.; to the point of beginning. These temporary restricted areas would automatically expire on August 26, 2017. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:38 Feb 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review This proposal will be subjected to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Background

    Marine Corps combat readiness depends on the continued availability 
of ranges and training areas that provide realistic, mission-oriented 
training and exercises. Marine Corps training proceeds on a continuum, 
from entry-level training of individual Marines in basic military 
skills to large-scale exercises involving a Marine Air Ground Task 
Force (MAGTF). Currently, the Marine Corps does not have sufficient 
range space to conduct a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB) level live 
fire exercise. Through careful analysis and a series of studies, MCAGCC 
Twentynine Palms was identified as the only Marine Corps installation 
capable of expansion to the dimensions required to support this level 
of exercise. Acquisition of new lands without the requisite special use 
airspace (SUA) would not allow for the training events required to 
successfully execute this essential exercise. Consequently, a new 
restricted area, military operations areas (MOA) and air traffic 
control-assigned airspace are being developed as a critical element of 
the required expansion to support large scale MEB level exercises and 
those supporting building block training events.. The establishment of 
temporary restricted area R-2509E, W, and N, will substantially enhance 
both the capability and capacity of the MCAGCC Twentynine Palms Range 
and Training Areas (RTA) to conduct required training for an MEB large 
scale exercise.

The Proposal

    This proposal would establish new temporary restricted areas R-
2509E, R-2509W, and R-2509N for the period from August 7 to August 26, 
2017, to accommodate live fire from pistols, rifles, machine guns, 
anti-tank weapons, mortars, artillery, Unmanned Aircraft Systems, fixed 
wing, and rotary wing training activities including close air support 
and live ordnance delivery. This proposed temporary restricted area is 
required to effectively deconflict Department of Defense and all other 
air

traffic from hazards associated with live fire training.
    Based on impacts mitigation coordinated with the Los Angeles Air 
Route Traffic Control Center, the maximum altitude will be FL 220 
generally. However, at certain times for a period of 4 hours on 2 days 
of the exercise, the maximum altitude will be FL400. R-2509W would have 
a ceiling of 8,000 feet MSL and R-2509N would have a ceiling of 16,000 
feet MSL. Supersonic flight will not be conducted as part of the above 
aviation training activities.
    The times of use for R-2509E, R-2509W, and R-2509N would be by 
NOTAM, and activations of R-2509E above FL220 would have the NOTAM 
issued 48 hours in advance. Expected usage would be 12 hours per day 
for 10 days up to 16,000 feet and 16 hours per day for 6 days up to 
FL220.
    The lateral boundaries of the proposed areas would be as follows:
    Temporary R-2509E--Beginning at lat. 34[deg]40'30'' N., long. 
116[deg]29'43'' W., to lat. 34[deg]36'00'' N., long. 116[deg]28'03''

long. 116[deg]42'51'' W.; to the point of beginning.
    Excluding that airspace within a 3.4-mile radius of point in space 
coordinates at lat. 34[deg]25'32'' N., long. 116[deg]36'52'' W.; 
surface to 1,500 feet AGL.
    Temporary R-2509N--Beginning at lat. 34[deg]35'03'' N., long. 
116[deg]36'10'' W.; to lat. 34[deg]40'30'' N., long. 116[deg]29'43'' 
W.; to lat. 34[deg]34'17'' N., long. 116[deg]35'52'' W.; to the point 
of beginning.
    These temporary restricted areas would automatically expire on 
August 26, 2017.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 
Department of Transportation (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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subjected to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures,'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
