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 associated Class D and E airspace to support new RNAV procedures for IFR operations at Friedman Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID. History On January 23, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 7735) Docket FAA–2016–9355 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Friedman Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The four comments received supported the proposal. The Class E surface area is a part-time airspace area, effective when the Class D airspace is not in effect, therefore requires NOTAM part-time status information. After publication, the FAA realized the proposal’s legal description did not include the Notice to Airmen part-time status information. Also, an editorial change is made to the Class D and Class E surface area legal descriptions replacing Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 D and 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 PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 22071 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 D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Friedman Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID. The amendments are made to support implementation of new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. More specifically, the new RNAV (GPS) procedures require additional Class D airspace in the vicinity of the airport for circling maneuvers, but require less airspace upward from 700 feet above the surface to support arrival and departure of IFR aircraft. Class D airspace is expanded from the surface to and including 7,800 feet MSL to within a 4.9-mile radius (increased from a 4.1mile radius) of the airport, with an extension from the 4.9-mile radius increased from 6 miles to 6.3 miles southeast. Class E surface area airspace is reduced to within a 4.9-mile radius of the airport, with a segment increased from 6 miles to 6.3 miles southeast of the airport to provide controlled airspace when Class D airspace is not in effect. Also, the NOTAM part-time status information is added in the Class D airspace legal description. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is reduced to within a 4.9-mile radius of the airport (from the 5.5-mile radius), with the southeast segment reduced from 15.5 miles to 11.3 miles from the radius of the airport. Additionally, the geographic coordinates for the airport listed in the Class D description are updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. 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 E:\FR\FM\12MYR1.SGM 12MYR1 22072 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 91 / Friday, May 12, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 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.

Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a NPRM with respect to this rule because the Coast Guard was not notified of the fireworks display until March 22, 2017. After full review of the details for the planned display, the Coast Guard determined action is needed to protect people and property from the safety hazards associated with the fireworks display on the Upper Mississippi River (UMR) near St. Louis, MO.

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 associated Class D and E airspace to support new RNAV 
procedures for IFR operations at Friedman Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID.

History

    On January 23, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 
FR 7735) Docket FAA-2016-9355 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to 
modify Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Friedman 
Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA. The four comments received supported the 
proposal.
    The Class E surface area is a part-time airspace area, effective 
when the Class D airspace is not in effect, therefore requires NOTAM 
part-time status information. After publication, the FAA realized the 
proposal's legal description did not include the Notice to Airmen part-
time status information.
    Also, an editorial change is made to the Class D and Class E 
surface area legal descriptions replacing Airport/Facility Directory 
with the term Chart Supplement.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 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 D and 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

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by modifying Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, 
and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Friedman Memorial Airport, Hailey, ID. The amendments are made to 
support implementation of new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach 
procedures at the airport. More specifically, the new RNAV (GPS) 
procedures require additional Class D airspace in the vicinity of the 
airport for circling maneuvers, but require less airspace upward from 
700 feet above the surface to support arrival and departure of IFR 
aircraft. Class D airspace is expanded from the surface to and 
including 7,800 feet MSL to within a 4.9-mile radius (increased from a 
4.1-mile radius) of the airport, with an extension from the 4.9-mile 
radius increased from 6 miles to 6.3 miles southeast.
    Class E surface area airspace is reduced to within a 4.9-mile 
radius of the airport, with a segment increased from 6 miles to 6.3 
miles southeast of the airport to provide controlled airspace when 
Class D airspace is not in effect. Also, the NOTAM part-time status 
information is added in the Class D airspace legal description.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
is reduced to within a 4.9-mile radius of the airport (from the 5.5-
mile radius), with the southeast segment reduced from 15.5 miles to 
11.3 miles from the radius of the airport. Additionally, the geographic 
coordinates for the airport listed in the Class D description are 
updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.

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

[[Page 22072]]

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.
