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 removes Class E airspace designated as an extension, and amends Class D airspace at Felker AAF, Fort Eustis, VA, to support IFR operations under standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (82 FR 16952, April 7, 2017) for Docket No. FAA–2017–0032. The NPRM proposed to amend Class E airspace designated as an extension at Felker AAF, Fort Eustis, VA, due to the decommissioning of the Felker NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. This action also makes an editorial change to the Class D airspace legal description removing the words ‘‘(formerly the Airport/Facility Directory)’’.

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 removes Class E airspace designated as an extension, and amends 
Class D airspace at Felker AAF, Fort Eustis, VA, to support IFR 
operations under standard instrument approach procedures at the 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register (82 FR 16952, April 7, 2017) for Docket No. FAA-2017-
0032. The NPRM proposed to amend Class E airspace designated as an 
extension at Felker AAF, Fort Eustis, VA, due to the decommissioning of 
the Felker NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    This action also makes an editorial change to the Class D airspace 
legal description removing the words ``(formerly the Airport/Facility 
Directory)''. Except for this change, the rule is the same as published 
in the NPRM.

[[Page 1538]]

    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 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 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 proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective 
September 15, 2017. FAA Order 7400.11A 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 removing Class E airspace designated as an extension to a 
Class D surface area at Felker Army Airfield, Fort Eustis, VA, due to 
the decommissioning of the Felker NDB and cancellation of the NDB 
approach, and for continued safety and management of IFR operations at 
the airport. The geographic coordinates of the airport are adjusted 
under Class D to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Additionally, this action removes the words ``(formerly the 
Airport/Facility Directory)'' from the Class D airspace legal 
description.
    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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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.
