Amendment of Class E Airspace, Knoxville, TN; and Establishment of Class E Airspace, Madisonville, TN, 49483-49485 [2018-21316]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 191 / Tuesday, October 2, 2018 / Rules and Regulations The geographic coordinates of the Ellwood City VOR/DME are amended in the associated Class E airspace to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Also, an editorial change is made to the associated Class E airspace legal descriptions replacing Airport Facility Directory with Chart Supplement. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. Additionally, the airport name is changed to Zelienople Municipal Airport, Zelienople, PA, from Zelienople Airport, and the geographic coordinates of this airport are adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Finally, the exclusionary language is removed from the airspace descriptions of both airports, as it is not needed to describe the boundaries. Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, 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. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES 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.

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 surface airspace at Knoxville Downtown Island 
Airport, Knoxville, TN, and amends Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface by removing Monroe County Airport, 
Madisonville, TN, from in the legal description for McGhee-Tyson 
Airport, and establishing it under its own designation of Madisonville, 
TN, to support IFR operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 19474, May 3, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2017-1214 to 
amend Class E surface airspace at Knoxville Downtown Island Airport, 
Knoxville, TN, by adding to the airspace description the exclusion of a 
1-mile radius around University of Tennessee Medical Center Heliport, 
and to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at McGhee-Tyson Airport, Kenansville, NC, due to the 
decommissioning of the Kenan NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. 
The FAA published a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking in the 
Federal Register (83 FR 39386, August 9, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2017-
1214 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface by removing Monroe County Airport, Madisonville, TN, from in 
the legal description for McGhee-Tyson Airport, and establishing it 
under its own designation of Madisonville, TN. 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 paragraphs 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C dated August 13, 2018, and 
effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 71.1. The Class 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 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 
2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C 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 E surface airspace at Knoxville Downtown Island 
Airport, Knoxville, TN, by adding to the airspace description the 
exclusion of a 1-mile radius around University of Tennessee Medical 
Center Heliport;
    Amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface to within a 15.4-mile (from a 10-mile) radius of McGhee-Tyson 
Airport, Kenansville, NC, due to the decommissioning of the Kenan NDB, 
and cancellation of the NDB approach;
    Adjusting of the geographic coordinates of Knoxville Downtown 
Island Airport, McGhee Tyson Airport, and Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge 
Airport, to be in concert with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Removing Monroe County Airport, Madisonville, TN, from the 
Knoxville, TN, McGhee-Tyson Airport designation, and establishing it as 
stand-alone airspace with its own designation.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and 
effective September 15, 2018, 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.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed 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

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
