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 at Soldotna Airport, Soldotna, AK, to conform the airspace size necessary for the current instrument flight rules (IFR) operations under standard instrument approach and departure procedures at the airport.

The segment extending from the 10.1-mile radius of the airport within 4 miles either side of the 270° bearing of the Soldotna NDB is revised from 4 miles to 2.4 miles with the reference to the NDB changed to the Soldotna Airport. The segment extending from the 10.1mile radius to 21 miles west of Soldotna Airport is modified to 11 miles west of the airport. The segment within 4 miles south of the 090° bearing of Soldotna Airport is revised to 3.5 miles.

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

History

    On March 23, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 
14839) Docket FAA-2016-9588 a notice of proposed rulemaking to modify 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at 
Soldotna Airport, Soldotna, AK. Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received to the proposed 
rule.
    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 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 7400.11B, 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 above 
the surface at Soldotna Airport, Soldotna, AK. The segment extending 
from the 10.1-mile radius of the airport within 4 miles either side of 
the 270[deg] bearing of the Soldotna NDB is revised from 4 miles to 2.4 
miles with the reference to the NDB changed to the Soldotna Airport.
    The segment extending from the 10.1-mile radius to 21 miles west of 
Soldotna Airport is modified to 11 miles west of the airport.
    The segment within 4 miles south of the 090[deg] bearing of 
Soldotna Airport is revised to 3.5 miles. This action is necessary 
because the airspace as previously configured exceeded the minimum size 
required for current arrivals and departures.

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.
