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 NOTAM part-time information for Class D and E airspace to ensure the efficient use of airspace at Van Nuys Airport. History The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E airspace designated as an extension at Van Nuys Airport, Van Nuys, CA, as published in FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, does not require part time status. In addition, NOTAM part-time status is required for Van Nuys Airport in Class E surface area airspace. Also, an editorial change is made to the Class D airspace legal description replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11B dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by eliminating the following language from the legal description of Class E airspace designated as an extension at Van Nuys Airport, Van Nuys, CA, ‘‘This Class E airspace is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Airport/ Facility Directory’’. This action also would add NOTAM part-time status information to the regulatory text in Class E surface area airspace for Van Nuys Airport. This brings the airspace descriptions published in the Order in line with the airspace hours listed in the Chart Supplement. Lastly, this action replaces the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the Class D airspace legal description. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. 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) E:\FR\FM\06JNR1.SGM 06JNR1 26204 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 109 / Wednesday, June 6, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 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 5–6.5a. 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 scope of that authority 
as it amends NOTAM part-time information for Class D and E airspace to 
ensure the efficient use of airspace at Van Nuys Airport.

History

    The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E 
airspace designated as an extension at Van Nuys Airport, Van Nuys, CA, 
as published in FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and Reporting 
Points, does not require part time status. In addition, NOTAM part-time 
status is required for Van Nuys Airport in Class E surface area 
airspace. Also, an editorial change is made to the Class D airspace 
legal description replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term 
Chart Supplement.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11B dated 
August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017, which is incorporated 
by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class D and 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 action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by eliminating the following language from the legal 
description of Class E airspace designated as an extension at Van Nuys 
Airport, Van Nuys, CA, ``This Class E airspace is effective during the 
specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. 
The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published 
in the Airport/Facility Directory''.
    This action also would add NOTAM part-time status information to 
the regulatory text in Class E surface area airspace for Van Nuys 
Airport. This brings the airspace descriptions published in the Order 
in line with the airspace hours listed in the Chart Supplement.
    Lastly, this action replaces the outdated term Airport/Facility 
Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the Class D airspace legal 
description.
    This is an administrative change and does not affect the 
boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, 
therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is 
unnecessary.

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)

[[Page 26204]]

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 5-6.5a. 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.
