Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Twin Falls, ID, 11409-11411 [2018-05050]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 51 / Thursday, March 15, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 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 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the earth at Yuma Municipal Airport, Yuma, CO, to support IFR operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (82 FR 58144; December 11, 2017) for Docket No. FAA–2017–1064 to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Yuma Municipal Airport, Yuma, CO. 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 designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD 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 The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of Yuma Municipal Airport, Yuma, CO. This airspace is necessary to accommodate the development of RNAV (IFR) operations in standard instrument approach and departure procedures at the airport. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 Mar 14, 2018 Jkt 244001 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.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment was received. Discussion of Comments The commenter objected to the expansion of Class D airspace based on a belief that the FAA erred in calculating the Class D area radius as described in FAA Order 7400.2K, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, Chapter 17, Figure 17–2–1, specifically by enlarging the Class D area from a 4.1-mile radius to a 4.3-mile radius. After a second review, the FAA agrees a 4.1-mile radius for some areas of the Class D is sufficient. The proposed enlargement of Class D airspace to a 4.3-mile radius was not based on Figure 17–2–1, but instead was intended to contain all IFR circling aircraft utilizing an expanded circling approach maneuvering airspace radius. After a second review the FAA has determined the proposed Class D airspace east, southeast, and west would adequately contain the circling aircraft. The FAA will therefore preserve Class D airspace within a 4.1-mile radius of the airport where additional airspace is not required. E:\FR\FM\15MRR1.SGM 15MRR1

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 Joslin Field-Magic Valley 
Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID, in support of IFR operations at the 
airport.

History

    The FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 57556; December 6, 
2017) for Docket FAA-2017-0969, a notice of proposed rulemaking to 
modify Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, Class E 
airspace designated as an extension, and Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Joslin Field-Magic Valley 
Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID. 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, 6004, 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 E airspace designated as an extension to a 
Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface at Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional 
Airport, Twin Falls, ID.
    Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E 
surface area is reduced to a 5-mile wide segment (from 8.6-miles wide) 
extending to 7 miles (from 9.2 miles) east, and a 5-mile wide segment 
(from 8.6 miles wide) extending to 7.1 miles (from 9.2 miles) west of 
the airport. Also, the part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status is 
removed from Class E airspace designated as an extension, as this 
airspace is continuous.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
is reduced to a 12-mile wide segment (from a 16.5-mile segment) 
extending to 21.9 miles (from 26.1 miles) east, and 16 miles (from 20 
miles) west of the airport. Also, the small extension to 8.2 miles 
southeast of the airport is removed.
    Finally, this action replaces the outdated term ``Airport/Facility 
Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' in the Class D, and 
Class E surface airspace legal descriptions, and removes the words 
``Twin Falls'' from the airport name in the airspace designations for 
Class D and E airspace noted in this action.
    These modifications are necessary for the safety and 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, 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.
