Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Kemmerer, WY, 21970-21972 [2018-09986]

Download as PDF 21970 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 92 / Friday, May 11, 2018 / Proposed Rules Class D and Class 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. 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

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 7400.11B 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 Proposal The FAA proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the north extension of the Class E surface area airspace at Kemmerer Municipal Airport, Kemmerer, WY, to within 1.8 miles (from 1 mile) each side of the 354° bearing (from the 360° bearing) from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 7.7 miles (from 7 miles) north of the airport. Also, the NOTAM part-time status for the airspace would be removed to make the airspace effective continuously. The FAA also proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 4.3-mile radius of Kemmerer Municipal Airport from the airport 035° bearing clockwise to the airport 006° bearing, and within a 9.5 mile radius of the airport from the airport 006° bearing PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 21971 clockwise to the airport 035° bearing, and within 2.2 miles each side of the 354° bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 15.9 miles north of the airport, and within 2.2 miles each side of the 172° bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 7.4 miles south of the airport (from within the 8-mile radius of Kemmerer Municipal Airport, and within 4 miles each side of the 174° bearing from the airport extending from the airport 11 miles south of the airport, and within 3.6 miles each side of the 354° bearing from the airport extending from the airport to 16.1 miles northwest of the airport). Additionally, the Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be removed because sufficient airspace exists (Wasatch and Jackson Class E airspace areas) and duplication is not necessary. This airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 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 designation 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 7400.11B 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 Proposal

    The FAA proposes to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 
CFR) part 71 by modifying the north extension of the Class E surface 
area airspace at Kemmerer Municipal Airport, Kemmerer, WY, to within 
1.8 miles (from 1 mile) each side of the 354[deg] bearing (from the 
360[deg] bearing) from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius 
of the airport to 7.7 miles (from 7 miles) north of the airport. Also, 
the NOTAM part-time status for the airspace would be removed to make 
the airspace effective continuously.
    The FAA also proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 4.3-mile radius of 
Kemmerer Municipal Airport from the airport 035[deg] bearing clockwise 
to the airport 006[deg] bearing, and within a 9.5 mile radius of the 
airport from the airport 006[deg] bearing clockwise to the airport 
035[deg] bearing, and within 2.2 miles each side of the 354[deg] 
bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the 
airport to 15.9 miles north of the airport, and within 2.2 miles each 
side of the 172[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-
mile radius of the airport to 7.4 miles south of the airport (from 
within the 8-mile radius of Kemmerer Municipal Airport, and within 4 
miles each side of the 174[deg] bearing from the airport extending from 
the airport 11 miles south of the airport, and within 3.6 miles each 
side of the 354[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 
airport to 16.1 miles northwest of the airport). Additionally, the 
Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface 
would be removed because sufficient airspace exists (Wasatch and 
Jackson Class E airspace areas) and duplication is not necessary. This 
airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 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 designation listed in this document will 
be published subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and

Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
