Amendment of Class E Airspace; Madison, MN, 63407-63409 [2018-26565]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 236 / Monday, December 10, 2018 / Rules and Regulations south of the Drake Field: RWY 34–LOC; and adding an extension 1 mile each side of the 347° bearing from the airport from the 4-mile radius to 4.9 miles north the airport. The city associated with the airport is removed from the airspace legal description to comply with a change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, and the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ is updated to ‘‘Chart Supplement.’’ Additionally, the geographic coordinates of the airport are updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Amending the Class E airspace designated as a surface area at Drake Field to within a 4-mile radius (decreased from a 4.1-mile radius); and extending the airspace up to and including 3,800 feet MSL; and adding an extension 1.1 miles each side of the 181° bearing from the airport from the 4-mile radius to 5.9 miles south of the airport, and adding an extension 1 mile each side of the 172° bearing from the Drake Field: RWY 34–LOC from the 4mile radius to 4.9 miles south of the Drake Field: RWY 34–LOC; and adding an extension 1 mile each side of the 347° bearing from the airport from the 4-mile radius to 4.9 miles north of the airport. The city associated with the airport is removed from the airspace legal description to comply with a change to FAA Order 7400.2L, and the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ is updated to ‘‘Chart Supplement.’’ Additionally, the geographic coordinates of the airport are updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. And removing the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E at Drake Field as it is no longer required. The typographical error in the airspace legal description for the Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as a surface area in the extension from the Drake Field: RWY 34–LOC changing ‘‘sided’’ to ‘‘side’’ is corrected in this rule. Except for this change, this rule is the same as published in the NPRM. This action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Drake VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:14 Dec 07, 2018 Jkt 247001 63407 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. within a 4-mile radius of Drake Field, and within 1.1 miles each side of the 181° bearing from the airport from the 4-mile radius to 5.9 miles south of the airport, and within 1 mile each side of the 172° bearing from the Drake Field: RWY 34–LOC from the 4-mile radius to 4.9 miles south of the Drake Field: RWY 34–LOC, and within 1 mile each side of the 347° bearing from the airport from the 4-mile radius to 4.9 miles north of the airport.

SUMMARY: This action modifies Class E airspace extending up to 700 feet 
above the surface at Lac Qui Parle County Airport (formerly Madison-Lac 
Qui Parle Airport), Madison, MN, to accommodate new standard instrument 
approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the 
airport. The FAA is taking this action due to the decommissioning of 
the Madison non-directional radio beacon (NDB) and cancellation of the 
associated approach. This enhances the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport. Also, an editorial change has been made 
removing the city from the airport name. The airport name is updated

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 would amend controlled airspace in Class E airspace, at Lac Qui 
Parle County Airport, Madison, MN, to support instrument flight rules 
(IFR) operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (83 FR 44248; August 30, 2018) for Docket No. FAA-2018-0194 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Lac Qui Parle County Airport, Madison, MN. 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 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) 
part 71 modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 6.4-mile radius (increased from a 6.3-mile radius) 
at Lac Qui Parle County Airport, Madison, MN. The segment 7.4 miles 
southeast of the airport will be removed due to the decommissioning of 
the Madison NDB and cancellation of the associated approach. This 
action enhances the safety and management of the standard instrument 
approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport.
    Also, an editorial change has been made removing the city from the 
airport name. The airport name is updated from Madison-Lac Qui Parle 
Airport, to Lac Qui Parle County Airport, Madison, MN.

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.

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 5-6.5.a. 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.
