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 at Cambridge-Dorchester Regional Airport, 
Cambridge, MD, to support standard instrument approach procedures for 
IFR operations in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register (83 FR 38098, August 3, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-
0468 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more 
above the surface at Cambridge-Dorchester Regional Airport, Cambridge, 
MD.
    Subsequent to publication, the FAA found that the airspace 
designation header was incorrect, and is corrected in this rule.
    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 71.1. The 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

[[Page 53982]]

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 airspace extending upward from 700 
feet or more above the surface at Cambridge-Dorchester Regional Airport 
to within a 6.6-mile radius (increased from a 6.4-mile 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 Cambridge-
Dorchester Regional Airport, (formerly Cambridge-Dorchester Airport).
    Finally, the region identifier in the designation header is 
corrected to ``AEA'' from ``ANE''.

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.
