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 E:\FR\FM\03AUR1.SGM 03AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 150 / Friday, August 3, 2018 / Rules and Regulations safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends controlled airspace in the respective Class D and Class E airspace areas at Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA; Reading Regional Airport/Carl A. Spaatz Field, Reading, PA; and Williamsport Regional Airport, (formerly Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport), Williamsport, PA, for continued safety and management of IFR operations at these airports. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (82 FR 16955, April 7, 2017) for Docket No. FAA–2016–9377 to amend Class D and Class E airspace at Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA; Reading Regional Airport/Carl A. Spaatz Field, Reading, PA; and Williamsport Regional Airport, Williamsport, PA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment was received supporting the proposal. Class D and 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 part 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES 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 Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending Class E airspace to remove the NOTAM part-time status of the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA; Reading Regional Airport/Carl A. Spaatz Field, Reading, PA; and Williamsport Regional Airport, Williamsport, PA. These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations at these airports. The VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:08 Aug 02, 2018 Jkt 244001 geographic coordinates of these airports, as well as the Picture Rocks nondirectional radio beacon (NDB) are amended in the associated Class D and E airspace to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action also updates the airport name to Williamsport Regional Airport (formerly Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport). Additionally, an editorial change is made to the Class D and Class E airspace legal descriptions replacing Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement. 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. 38017 Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(f), 106(g); 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959–1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 [Amended] 2.

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

[[Page 38017]]

safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation 
is within the scope of that authority as it amends controlled airspace 
in the respective Class D and Class E airspace areas at Lancaster 
Airport, Lancaster, PA; Reading Regional Airport/Carl A. Spaatz Field, 
Reading, PA; and Williamsport Regional Airport, (formerly Williamsport-
Lycoming County Airport), Williamsport, PA, for continued safety and 
management of IFR operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (82 FR 16955, April 7, 2017) for Docket No. FAA-2016-9377 to 
amend Class D and Class E airspace at Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA; 
Reading Regional Airport/Carl A. Spaatz Field, Reading, PA; and 
Williamsport Regional Airport, Williamsport, PA.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One 
comment was received supporting the proposal.
    Class D and 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 part 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 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 Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending Class E airspace to remove the NOTAM part-time 
status of the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D 
surface area at Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA; Reading Regional 
Airport/Carl A. Spaatz Field, Reading, PA; and Williamsport Regional 
Airport, Williamsport, PA. These changes are necessary for continued 
safety and management of IFR operations at these airports. The 
geographic coordinates of these airports, as well as the Picture Rocks 
non-directional radio beacon (NDB) are amended in the associated Class 
D and E airspace to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. This 
action also updates the airport name to Williamsport Regional Airport 
(formerly Williamsport-Lycoming County Airport).
    Additionally, an editorial change is made to the Class D and Class 
E airspace legal descriptions replacing Airport/Facility Directory with 
the term Chart Supplement.

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 5-6.5a. 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.
