SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by correcting a printing error in the geographic coordinates of Erie International Airport/Tom Ridge Field, Erie, PA, in Class D airspace. The coordinates are changed from (lat. 42°04′59″ N, long. 80°10′26″ W) to (lat. 42°04′59″ N, long. 80°10′26″ W). Administratively, this change does not affect the boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. In consideration of the need correctly state the airport reference point (coordinates) to avoid confusion on the part of pilots flying in the vicinity of the airport, the FAA finds good cause, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d), for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days.

The minute latitude degrees were incorrectly listed as seconds.

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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 corrects a printing error in the geographic coordinates of Erie 
International Airport/Tom Ridge Field, Erie, PA.

History

    The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the latitude 
coordinate for Erie International Airport/Tom Ridge Field, Erie, PA, in 
Class D airspace, was incorrectly published in the Federal Register of 
May 23, 2018 (83 FR 23798). The minute latitude degrees were 
incorrectly listed as seconds. Class D airspace designations are 
published in paragraph 5000 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 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 correcting a printing error in the geographic coordinates of 
Erie International Airport/Tom Ridge Field, Erie, PA, in Class D 
airspace. The coordinates are changed from (lat. 42[deg]04'59'' N, 
long. 80[deg]10'26'' W) to (lat. 42[deg]04'59'' N, long. 80[deg]10'26'' 
W).
    Administratively, this change does not affect the boundaries, or 
operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public 
procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    In consideration of the need correctly state the airport reference 
point (coordinates) to avoid confusion on the part of pilots flying in 
the vicinity of the airport, the FAA finds good cause, pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 553(d), for making this amendment effective in less than 30 
days.

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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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.
