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 airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at CambridgeDorchester Regional Airport to within a 6.6-mile radius (increased from a 6.4mile radius) of the airport due to the decommissioning of the Cambridge NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. The airspace redesign enhances the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates of the airport also are adjusted to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database, and the airport name is updated to CambridgeDorchester Regional Airport, (formerly Cambridge-Dorchester Airport). Finally, the region identifier in the designation header is corrected to ‘‘AEA’’ from ‘‘ANE’’.

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 Copiah County Airport, Crystal Springs, MS, to

[[Page 53983]]

support standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at 
this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM in the 
Federal Register (83 FR 36482, July 30, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2016-
9442 to establish Class E surface area airspace at Copiah County 
Airport, Crystal Springs, MS.
    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 7400.11C 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 proposes to amend 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 7-mile radius of Copiah County Airport, 
Crystal Springs, MS, providing the controlled airspace required to 
support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for 
IFR operations at the airport.

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.
