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 New Castle-Henry County Municipal Airport, New Castle, IN, to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (83 FR 17512; April 20, 2018) for Docket No. FAA–2018–0290 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at New Castle-Henry County Municipal Airport, New Castle, IN.

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 New Castle-Henry County Municipal Airport, New Castle, IN, 
to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 17512; April 20, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-0290 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at New Castle-Henry County Municipal Airport, New Castle, IN. 
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 paragraph 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.

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 6.4-mile radius (decreased from a 7-mile 
radius) at New Castle-Henry County Municipal Airport, New Castle, IN, 
and adds an extension 2.5 miles each side of the 267[deg] bearing from 
the New Castle NDB extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 7.0 miles west 
of the NDB. The geographic coordinates of the airport are also being 
updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Richmond VOR as part of the VOR MON Program.

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.
