Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:58 Oct 13, 2017 Jkt 244001 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 the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority since it vertically subdivides the restricted airspace at Fort Gordon, GA, into three sections to enable more efficient use of airspace. Background The restricted airspace at Fort Gordon, GA consists of R–3004A, extending from the surface to 7,000 feet MSL; and R–3004B, extending from 7,001 feet MSL to 16,000 feet MSL. The time of designation for both areas is as activated by NOTAM 24 hours in advance. A FAA review of the utilization of the airspace revealed that most activities being conducted only require restricted airspace below 3,500 feet MSL. However, when R–3004A was activated, restrictions were in effect up to 7,000 feet MSL. While lateral boundaries of the restricted airspace remain the same as currently charted and the overall vertical limits of the restricted airspace are unchanged, in order to provide for more efficient use of airspace, the FAA and the using agency agreed to further subdivide the restricted airspace vertically. The FAA is realigning the designated altitudes for R–3004A and R–3004B and establishing R–3004C as a third subdivision. The new configuration enables activation of restricted airspace to the lower altitude required for the majority of the using agency’s training needs while maintaining the ability to activate additional restricted airspace for missions that require higher altitudes. The designated altitudes for R–3004A are amended to read ‘‘surface to but not including 3,500 feet MSL’’ (decreased from 7,000 feet MSL). The designated altitudes for R–3004B are amended to read ‘‘3,500 feet MSL to but not including 7,000 feet MSL,’’ instead of the current ‘‘7,001 feet MSL to 16,000 feet MSL.’’ This amendment also established a third subdivision, designated R–3004C, which extends from 7,000 feet MSL to 16,000 feet MSL. These changes accommodate the using agency’s requirements while releasing unneeded restricted airspace for access by other users. In addition, the aircraft activity limitations on use of the areas are amended to clarify the limitations in PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 effect during the annual Masters Golf Tournament. These changes enhance the efficient use of the National Airspace System by providing for activation of the minimum amount of restricted airspace needed for the specific mission being conducted resulting in the release of unneeded restricted airspace for access by other users. The Rule This rule amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by further dividing the current restricted airspace at Fort Gordon, GA, into three subareas instead of two. The designated altitudes for R–3004A are amended from the current ‘‘surface to 7,000 feet MSL,’’ to ‘‘surface to but not including 3,500 feet MSL.’’ The designated altitudes for R–3004B are amended from the current ‘‘7,001 feet MSL to 16,000 feet MSL’’ to ‘‘3,500 feet MSL to but not including 7,000 feet MSL.’’ A new third subdivision, designated R–3004C, is established and extends from 7,000 feet MSL to 16,000 feet MSL.’’ Additionally, the terms and conditions listed in the restricted area legal descriptions for aircraft activities in the restricted areas are revised, in part. Specifically, in order to clarify aircraft operations during the annual Masters Golf tournament, the text of item number 1 is changed from ‘‘1. Aircraft activities may not be conducted on weekends, National holidays, or the entire week of the Masters Golf Tournament’’ to: ‘‘1. Aircraft activities must not be conducted on weekends, national holidays, or from the Sunday prior to the Masters Golf Tournament through the Monday after (and subsequent weather days if required).’’ The terms and conditions in Items 2 and 3 remain unchanged. The above modifications enhance the efficient use of airspace and reduce the burden on the public by lessening the amount of restricted airspace at Fort Gordon, GA, that is activated on a routine basis. These modifications do not change the current lateral boundaries, overall designated altitudes, or activities conducted within the restricted areas; therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this action 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 E:\FR\FM\16OCR1.SGM 16OCR1

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 Schenck Field, Clarinda, IA, to support instrument flight 
rules (IFR) operations at this airport.

History

    On July 21, 2017, the FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) in the Federal Register (82 FR 33834, Docket No. FAA-2017-0536) 
to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Schenck Field, Clarinda, 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 7400.11B, 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.

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 Schenck Field, Clarinda, IA, by removing the Clarinda 
NDB from the legal description; removing the extension south of the 
airport; and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
the Clarinda NDB and cancellation of the associated instrument approach 
procedures at this airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for safety 
and the management of 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 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 5-6.5.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.
