Establishment of Class E Airspace, Creswell, OR, 42023-42024 [2018-17821]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 161 / Monday, August 20, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 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 CastleHenry County Municipal Airport, New Castle, IN, and adds an extension 2.5 miles each side of the 267° 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.

Five comments were received in support of the action. One commenter had concerns that were not substantive to the establishment of Class E airspace.

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 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Hobby Field, Creswell, OR, to support IFR operations at 
the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 16256; April 16, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-0044 to 
establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Hobby Field, Creswell, OR. Interested

parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Five comments 
were received in support of the action. One commenter had concerns that 
were not substantive to the establishment of Class E airspace. The 
concerns addressed the quality of the altimeter values reported by the 
Creswell Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) and the potential 
for conflict with the visual flight rules (VFR) traffic pattern. The 
concerns regarding AWOS have been forwarded to the servicing System 
Support Center. The RNAV procedure at Hobby Field should only be used 
when the wind is favoring runway 16, so the VFR traffic pattern should 
shift to match.
    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 designation 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 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Hobby Field, Creswell, OR, to accommodate new RNAV 
procedures at this airport for the safety and management of IFR 
operations.

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, 
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, will 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.
