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 D and Class E airspace at Morgantown Municipal Airport-Walter L. Bill Hart Field, Morgantown, WV, in support of IFR operations at the airport. History On April 7, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 16958) Docket No. FAA–2016–9480, a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at Morgantown Municipal Airport-Walter L. Bill Hart Field, Morgantown, WV, by PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 removing the NOTAM part-time status of the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area. Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport would be adjusted in the associated Class D and E airspace. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. This action also makes an editorial change to the associated Class D and E airspace legal descriptions removing the words ‘‘(previously called Airport/ Facility Directory). Except for this change, the rule is the same as published in the NPRM. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 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 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 This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E Airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at Morgantown Municipal Airport-Walter L. Bill Hart Field, Morgantown, WV, by eliminating the NOTAM information from the regulatory text that reads, ‘‘This Class E airspace area is effective during the specific dates and time established in advance by Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Airport/Facility Directory.’’ This action also amends Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface by updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Additionally, this action removes the words ‘‘(previously called Airport/ Facility Directory)’’ from the associated E:\FR\FM\21JYR1.SGM 21JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 139 / Friday, July 21, 2017 / Rules and Regulations AEA WV D Class D and E airspace legal descriptions. 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. 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.

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 D and Class E airspace at Morgantown Municipal 
Airport-Walter L. Bill Hart Field, Morgantown, WV, in support of IFR 
operations at the airport.

History

    On April 7, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 
16958) Docket No. FAA-2016-9480, a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
to amend Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D 
surface area at Morgantown Municipal Airport-Walter L. Bill Hart Field, 
Morgantown, WV, by removing the NOTAM part-time status of the Class E 
airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area. Also, 
the geographic coordinates of the airport would be adjusted in the 
associated Class D and E airspace. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    This action also makes an editorial change to the associated Class 
D and E airspace legal descriptions removing the words ``(previously 
called Airport/Facility Directory). Except for this change, the rule is 
the same as published in the NPRM.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 
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 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

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E Airspace designated as an extension to a Class D 
surface area at Morgantown Municipal Airport-Walter L. Bill Hart Field, 
Morgantown, WV, by eliminating the NOTAM information from the 
regulatory text that reads, ``This Class E airspace area is effective 
during the specific dates and time established in advance by Notice to 
Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously 
published in the Airport/Facility Directory.'' This action also amends 
Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface by updating 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to be in concert with the 
FAA's aeronautical database.
    Additionally, this action removes the words ``(previously called 
Airport/Facility Directory)'' from the associated

Class D and E airspace legal descriptions.

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. 
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.
