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 establishes Class E en route airspace at the Oakland ARTCC, centered near Sacramento, CA, to ensure controlled airspace exists in those areas where the Federal airway structure is inadequate. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES History On March 13, 2017, the FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (82 FR 13407) Docket No. FAA–2016–9476 to establish Class E en route airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center, near Sacramento, CA.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:57 Jun 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 Discussion of Comments Two comments were received supporting the proposed action. One commenter, in a separate comment, noted a small portion of Class E airspace upward from 5,000 feet mean sea level near the Hunter MOA was excluded from the proposed area. The FAA discovered a typographical error on one geographic coordinate in the proposed airspace legal description caused this exclusion (lat. 36°45′00″ N., instead of lat. 35°45′00″ N.). Also, the FAA determined the western edge of the proposed airspace required slight adjustments to ensure it captured that airspace within 12 miles of the shoreline. This action makes these corrections. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6006 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.

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 establishes Class E en route airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface centered near Sacramento, CA, extending from the southern border of the Rogue Valley en route airspace area near Redding, CA, west to include that airspace within 12 miles of the shoreline, south to the southern boundary of the Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center near Monterey, CA, east to the western boundary of the Coaldale en route airspace area, and northeast to near Reno, NV. This airspace is established to allow the most efficient routing between airports without reducing margins of safety or requiring additional coordination and pilot/controller workload.

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, will 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.

This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class E airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, to ensure the safety and management of aircraft within the National Airspace System. History The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E surface area airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, as published in FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, requires NOTAM part-time status to avoid overlap with the part-time Class D surface area airspace at the same airport.

The Rule This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by adding the following language to the legal description of Class E surface area airspace at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR that reads, ‘‘This Class E airspace is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement.’’. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary.

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 establishes Class E en route airspace at the Oakland ARTCC, 
centered near Sacramento, CA, to ensure controlled airspace exists in 
those areas where the Federal airway structure is inadequate.

History

    On March 13, 2017, the FAA published a notice of proposed 
rulemaking in the Federal Register (82 FR 13407) Docket No. FAA-2016-
9476 to establish Class E en route airspace extending upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface at Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center, 
near Sacramento, CA. Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal 
to the FAA. Three comments were received supporting the proposal; one 
from an anonymous commenter and two from Wally Roberts on behalf of the 
National Business Aviation Association (NBAA).

Discussion of Comments

    Two comments were received supporting the proposed action. One 
commenter, in a separate comment, noted a small portion of Class E 
airspace upward from 5,000 feet mean sea level near the Hunter MOA was 
excluded from the proposed area. The FAA discovered a typographical 
error on one geographic coordinate in the proposed airspace legal 
description caused this exclusion (lat. 36[deg]45'00'' N., instead of 
lat. 35[deg]45'00'' N.). Also, the FAA determined the western edge of 
the proposed airspace required slight adjustments to ensure it captured 
that airspace within 12 miles of the shoreline. This action makes these 
corrections.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6006 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

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E en route airspace extending upward from 
1,200 feet above the surface centered near Sacramento, CA, extending 
from the southern border of the Rogue Valley en route airspace area 
near Redding, CA, west to include that airspace within 12 miles of the 
shoreline, south to the southern boundary of the Oakland Air Route 
Traffic Control Center near Monterey, CA, east to the western boundary 
of the Coaldale en route airspace area, and northeast to near Reno, NV. 
This airspace is established to allow the most efficient routing 
between airports without reducing margins of safety or requiring 
additional coordination and pilot/controller workload. This action 
ensures the safety and management of controlled airspace within the 
national airspace system as it transitions from ground based navigation 
aids to satellite-based Global Navigation Satellite System for 
navigation.

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, will 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.
