The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of Oskaloosa Municipal Airport, Oskaloosa, IA, to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport. The segment within 2.6 miles each side of the 018° bearing from the Oskaloosa NDB extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 7 miles north of the NDB is removed due to the decommissioning of the NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach procedure.

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 airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Oskaloosa Municipal Airport, Oskaloosa, IA, to support IFR 
operations in standard instrument approach procedures at the airport.

History

    The FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 24271, May 26, 
2017) Docket No. FAA-2017-0296 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Oskaloosa Municipal Airport, Oskaloosa, 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 6005 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.

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 extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of Oskaloosa Municipal Airport, 
Oskaloosa, IA, to accommodate new standard instrument approach 
procedures for IFR operations at the airport. The segment within 2.6 
miles each side of the 018[deg] bearing from the Oskaloosa NDB 
extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 7 miles north of the NDB is 
removed due to the decommissioning of the NDB and cancellation of the 
NDB approach procedure. This action enhances the safety and management 
of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at 
the airport.

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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would 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.
