Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hawthorne, NV, 55942-55943 [2017-25420]

Download as PDF 55942 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Rules and Regulations coordinates of the airport are amended to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. * 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 E airspace at Industrial Airport, Hawthorne, NV, to 
support IFR operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA recently published a rule in the Federal Register (82 FR 
37514, August 11, 2017) Docket No. FAA-2017-0297, establishing Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hawthorne 
Industrial Airport, Hawthorne, NV, that contained a clerical error in 
the airspace legal description. The word `radius' was omitted from the 
sentence that reads ``. . . within 3.6 miles of the Hawthorne 
Industrial Airport. . . .''
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11B dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by correcting a clerical error in the regulatory text of Class 
E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at 
Hawthorne Industrial Airport, Hawthorne, NV. The text is corrected to 
read ``That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within a 3.6-mile radius of Hawthorne Industrial Airport. . . .''
    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act (5

[[Page 55943]]

U.S.C.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and comment 
procedure when the agency for ``good cause'' finds that these 
procedures are ``impracticable, or contrary to the public interest.'' 
As published, the omission of the word ``radius'' in this regulation 
may prove to be misleading. Accordingly, action is taken herein to add 
the word ``radius'' to the airspace description for Hawthorne 
Industrial Airport, therefore, in the interest of flight safety, I find 
that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are 
impracticable and contrary to the public interest.
    Section 553(d) of the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C.) 
authorizes agencies to determine an effective date of less than 30 days 
after publication for good cause found and published with the rule. In 
consideration of the need to correct the airspace description for 
Hawthorne Industrial Airport and to avoid confusion on the part of 
pilots flying in the vicinity of airport, the FAA finds good cause for 
making this amendment effective in less than 30 days in order to 
promote the safe and efficient handling of air traffic in the area.

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 5-6.5a. 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.
