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 E:\FR\FM\04MYR1.SGM 04MYR1 19618 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 87 / Friday, May 4, 2018 / Rules and Regulations scope of that authority as it modifies Class D and E airspace at Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, ID, in support of instrument flight rules operations at the airport. History On December 19, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 60130) Docket FAA–2017–0855, 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 Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, 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. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Amending Class D airspace at Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, ID, by raising the vertical limit to 7,000 feet (from 6,900 feet) and increasing the airspace south of the airport to a 5.6mile radius (from a 4.5-mile radius) to laterally protect IFR departures as they climb to 700 feet above the surface, due to rising terrain; Amending Class E surface area airspace to be coincident with the Class D airspace area; Removing Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area as it contains no arrival aircraft within 1,000 feet of the surface, and is not necessary; VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:15 May 03, 2018 Jkt 244001 Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to reduce the area southwest of the airport and slightly increase the area south of the airport. This redesign is necessary to ensure sufficient controlled airspace to contain IFR arrival aircraft within 1,500 feet above the surface and IFR departure aircraft until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. The VORTAC navigation aid noted in the description is removed, as it no longer defines the boundary of the airspace. In addition, this action establishes airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at the airport within 15 miles northwest and 5 miles southeast of a line extending from 15 miles southwest of the airport to 43 miles northeast of the airport. This provides controlled airspace to support aircraft operations under IFR as aircraft transition between the en route and airport environments. Lastly, this action updates the airport’s geographic coordinates for the associated Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA’s current aeronautical database, and replaces the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ with the term ‘‘Chart Supplement’’ in the Class D and Class E surface airspace legal descriptions. 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,’’ PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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

[[Page 19618]]

scope of that authority as it modifies Class D and E airspace at 
Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, ID, in support of instrument 
flight rules operations at the airport.

History

    On December 19, 2017, the FAA published in the Federal Register (82 
FR 60130) Docket FAA-2017-0855, 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 Pocatello Regional Airport, 
Pocatello, 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:
    Amending Class D airspace at Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, 
ID, by raising the vertical limit to 7,000 feet (from 6,900 feet) and 
increasing the airspace south of the airport to a 5.6-mile radius (from 
a 4.5-mile radius) to laterally protect IFR departures as they climb to 
700 feet above the surface, due to rising terrain;
    Amending Class E surface area airspace to be coincident with the 
Class D airspace area;
    Removing Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D 
or Class E surface area as it contains no arrival aircraft within 1,000 
feet of the surface, and is not necessary;
    Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface to reduce the area southwest of the airport and slightly 
increase the area south of the airport. This redesign is necessary to 
ensure sufficient controlled airspace to contain IFR arrival aircraft 
within 1,500 feet above the surface and IFR departure aircraft until 
reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. The VORTAC navigation aid noted 
in the description is removed, as it no longer defines the boundary of 
the airspace. In addition, this action establishes airspace extending 
upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at the airport within 15 miles 
northwest and 5 miles southeast of a line extending from 15 miles 
southwest of the airport to 43 miles northeast of the airport. This 
provides controlled airspace to support aircraft operations under IFR 
as aircraft transition between the en route and airport environments.
    Lastly, this action updates the airport's geographic coordinates 
for the associated Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA's 
current aeronautical database, and replaces the outdated term 
``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' in 
the Class D and Class E surface airspace legal descriptions. 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.
