SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:16 Aug 22, 2018 Jkt 244001 History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (83 FR 9243, March 5, 2018) for Docket No. FAA–2017–1159 to amend Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at New River MCAS and Albert J. Ellis Airport, Jacksonville, NC. Subsequent to publication, the FAA determined that establishment of Albert J. Ellis Airport in Class D airspace, associated with the New River MCAS, should be established under its own designation, thereby removing Albert J. Ellis Airport, Jacksonville, NC, from the New River MCAS Class D airspace description. This is merely an editorial change and does not alter the boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace. Except for this change, this rule is the same as published in the NPRM. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 42587 proposal to the FAA. Two comments were received supporting the proposal. While the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) supported this proposal, they stated that the NPRM did not comply with FAA guidance in Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, because a graphic was not included in the docket. Additionally, AOPA encouraged the FAA to follow their guidance in the Order by making the action effective date coincidental to the sectional chart publication date. The FAA has determined AOPA’s comments raised no substantive issues with respect to the proposed changes to the airspace addressed in the NPRM. To the extent the FAA failed to follow its policy guidance reference publishing graphics in the docket and the amendment of the Class D airspace effective date to match the sectional chart date, we note the following. With respect to AOPA’s comment addressing graphics, FAA Order 7400.2.L, paragraph 2–3–3.c. requires the official docket to include available graphics. For this airspace action, no graphics were deemed necessary or produced in the review or development of the proposed airspace amendments noted in the NPRM; therefore, no graphics were available to include in the docket. Specific to AOPA’s comment regarding the FAA already creating a graphical depiction of new or modified airspace overlaid on a Sectional Chart for quality assurance purposes, this is not correct nor required in all cases. During the airspace reviews, airspace graphics may be created, if deemed necessary, to determine if there are any terrain issues, or if cases are considered complex. However, in many cases, when developing an airspace amendment proposal, a graphic is not required. It was unclear if the graphic AOPA argued was already created with a sectional chart background was actually the airspace graphic created by the Aeronautical Informational Services office in preparation of publishing the sectional charts. However, that graphic is normally created after the rulemaking determination is published. With respect to AOPA’s comment addressing effective dates, FAA Order 7400.2L, paragraph 2–3–7.a.4. states that, to the extent practicable, Class D airspace area and restricted area rules should become effective on a sectional chart date and that consideration should be given to selecting a sectional chart date that matches a 56-day enroute chart cycle date. The FAA does consider publishing Class D airspace amendment effective dates to coincide with the E:\FR\FM\23AUR1.SGM 23AUR1

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 D and Class E airspace, and removes Class E airspace 
at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, New Smyrna Beach, FL, to support 
standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 25973, June 5, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-0328 to 
amend Class D airspace and Class E airspace area extending upward from 
700 feet or more above the surface, and remove Class E extension 
airspace at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, New Smyrna Beach, FL, 
as the New Smyrna Beach NDB has been decommissioned and the NDB 
approach cancelled.
    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 D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 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 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) 
amends part 71 by:
    Amending Class D airspace, at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, 
New Smyrna Beach, FL, by adjusting the geographic coordinates to be in 
concert with the FAA's aeronautical database; making an editorial 
change to the airspace legal description replacing Airport/Facility 
Directory with Chart Supplement;
    Removing Class E extension airspace as the airspace is no longer 
needed due to the airspace redesign; and
    Amending Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet or 
more above the surface to within a 6.8-mile (increased from a 6.6-mile) 
radius of at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, New Smyrna Beach, FL, 
and removing the extension southeast of the airport, as the New Smyrna 
Beach NDB has been decommissioned and the NDB approach cancelled. This 
action also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport and 
Massey Ranch Airpark to be in concert with the FAA's aeronautical 
database.

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. 
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 5-6.5a. 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.
