SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 244001 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 extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK, to support instrument flight rules operations at this airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (83 FR 10644; March 12, 2018) for Docket No. FAA–2018–0100 to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 25901 proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. 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 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 amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 modifies the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.6-mile radius (decreased from a 6.7-mile radius) at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK, and removes the extension to the north of the airport associated with the Halliburton Field Localizer. This action also adds an extension within 4 miles each side of the 359° bearing from the airport from the 6.6-mile radius to 11.6 miles north of the airport. The geographic coordinates of the airport are also being updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database, and the name of the city associated with the airport in the airspace legal description is being removed to comply with a change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Duncan VOR as part of the VOR MON Program and cancellation of the associated instrument procedures. 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 E:\FR\FM\05JNR1.SGM 05JNR1 25902 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 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 5–6.5.a. 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 extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK, to support instrument flight 
rules operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 10644; March 12, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-0100 to 
amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK. 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 paragraphs 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 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 amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 modifies the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to within a 6.6-mile radius (decreased from a 6.7-
mile radius) at Halliburton Field, Duncan, OK, and removes the 
extension to the north of the airport associated with the Halliburton 
Field Localizer. This action also adds an extension within 4 miles each 
side of the 359[deg] bearing from the airport from the 6.6-mile radius 
to 11.6 miles north of the airport.
    The geographic coordinates of the airport are also being updated to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database, and the name of the city 
associated with the airport in the airspace legal description is being 
removed to comply with a change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for 
Handling Airspace Matters.
    This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Duncan VOR as part of the VOR MON Program and 
cancellation of the associated instrument procedures.

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

[[Page 25902]]

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 5-6.5.a. 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.
