Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Cheyenne, WY, 44058-44060 [2017-20041]

Download as PDF 44058 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 182 / Thursday, September 21, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 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 would amend Class E airspace extending upward 700 feet above the surface at Iowa County Airport, Mineral Point, WI. History The FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 17158, April 10, 2017) Docket No. FAA–2017–0181 a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Iowa County Airport, Mineral Point, WI. 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 7400.11B, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017, 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. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B 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 modifies Class E Airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface to within a 6.6-mile radius (reduced from a 7.2-mile radius) of Iowa County Airport, Mineral Point, WI. The 5.2-mile wide segment from the Mineral Point NDB extending from the 7.2-mile radius of the airport to 7.4 miles VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:39 Sep 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 northeast is removed, due to the decommissioning and cancellation of the Mineral Point NDB, and NDB approaches. This action enhances the safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport. § 71.1 Regulatory Notices and Analyses Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth. 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.

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 modifies Class D and E airspace at Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson 
Field Airport, Cheyenne, WY, in support of instrument flight rules 
operations at the airport.

History

    On June 2, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 
25561) Docket FAA-2016-9473, a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to 
modify Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at 
Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport, Cheyenne, WY. 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 D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 6002, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11B, dated August 
3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017, 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 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B 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, modifying Class E surface area 
airspace, and modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 and 
1,200 feet above the surface at Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field 
Airport, Cheyenne, WY. This action is necessary due to the 
decommissioning of the Cheyenne ILS locator outer marker, removal of 
the Cheyenne VORTAC from the airspace description, and the availability 
of diverse departure headings as the FAA transitions from ground-based 
navigation aids to satellite-based navigation. Class D airspace is 
amended by removing the segment on each side of the Cheyenne ILS 
localizer east course extending from the 5.6-mile radius to the outer 
marker.
    Class E surface area airspace is amended to be coincident with the 
Class D airspace, and effective during the times the Class D is not in 
effect.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
is amended to within an 8.1-mile radius (from 12.2 miles) of Cheyenne 
Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport, and within a 9.1-mile radius of the 
airport from the 240[deg] bearing from the airport clockwise to the 
300[deg] bearing from the airport with a segment on each side of a 
275[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the airport 9.1-mile 
radius to 10.6 miles west of the airport, and with another segment on 
each side of the 028[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 
airport 8.1 mile radius to 10.8 miles northeast of the airport. The 
airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be 
modified to within a 43.6-mile radius of the airport (from a polygon of 
similar area) to provide controlled airspace for diverse departures 
until reaching the overlying Class E airspace.
    Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport are updated to 
match the FAA's current aeronautical database. This action also updates 
the airport name to Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport (from 
Cheyenne Airport). Finally, this action replaces the outdated term 
Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in 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, 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.
