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 D airspace, establishes Class E airspace designated as a surface area, and amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at the University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport, Norman, OK, to support IFR operations at this airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (82 FR 44981; September 27, 2017) for Docket No. FAA–2017–0825 to amend Class D airspace, establish Class E airspace designated as a surface area, and amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at the University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport, Norman, OK, to support IFR operations at the airport. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA discovered a typographic error in the regulatory text for Class E airspace designated as a surface area. The Notice E:\FR\FM\05JNR1.SGM 05JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 / Rules and Regulations to Airmen information incorrectly references Class D airspace instead of Class E airspace. Additionally, the names of the cities associated with the airports listed in the airspace descriptions have been removed to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. Except for the edits noted above, this rule is the same as published in the NPRM. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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.

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: Amends Class D airspace to within a 4.2-mile radius (reduced from 4.5-miles) of University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport (formerly University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airpark), Norman, OK, and updates the name of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Establishes Class E airspace designated as a surface area within a 4.2-mile radius of University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport, and corrects the reference to the NOTAM information to Class E airspace vice Class D airspace; and Amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at University of Oklahoma, Westheimer Airport, Norman, OK, contained within the Oklahoma City, OK, airspace description, to within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from 8.9-miles), removing the University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport ILS Localizer from the airspace description, and realigning the southwest extension to 2-miles (increased from 1.8-miles) either side of the 213° bearing from the airport (previously referenced from the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Jun 04, 2018 Jkt 244001 University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport ILS Localizer) from the 6.7-mile radius to 7.8-miles southwest of 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.

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 D airspace, establishes Class E airspace designated 
as a surface area, and amends Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface at the University of Oklahoma Westheimer 
Airport, Norman, OK, to support IFR operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (82 FR 44981; September 27, 2017) for Docket No. FAA-2017-0825 
to amend Class D airspace, establish Class E airspace designated as a 
surface area, and amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at the University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport, 
Norman, OK, to support IFR operations at the airport. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 
were received.
    Subsequent to publication, the FAA discovered a typographic error 
in the regulatory text for Class E airspace designated as a surface 
area. The Notice

[[Page 25903]]

to Airmen information incorrectly references Class D airspace instead 
of Class E airspace.
    Additionally, the names of the cities associated with the airports 
listed in the airspace descriptions have been removed to comply with a 
recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace 
Matters.
    Except for the edits noted above, this rule is the same as 
published in the NPRM.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 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 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

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71:
    Amends Class D airspace to within a 4.2-mile radius (reduced from 
4.5-miles) of University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport (formerly 
University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airpark), Norman, OK, and updates the 
name of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Establishes Class E airspace designated as a surface area within a 
4.2-mile radius of University of Oklahoma Westheimer Airport, and 
corrects the reference to the NOTAM information to Class E airspace 
vice Class D airspace; and
    Amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at University of Oklahoma, Westheimer Airport, Norman, OK, 
contained within the Oklahoma City, OK, airspace description, to within 
a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from 8.9-miles), removing the University of 
Oklahoma Westheimer Airport ILS Localizer from the airspace 
description, and realigning the southwest extension to 2-miles 
(increased from 1.8-miles) either side of the 213[deg] bearing from the 
airport (previously referenced from the University of Oklahoma 
Westheimer Airport ILS Localizer) from the 6.7-mile radius to 7.8-miles 
southwest of 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, 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.
