Amendment of Class E Airspace; Columbus, NE, 20258-20259 [2019-09466]

Download as PDF 20258 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 90 / Thursday, May 9, 2019 / Rules and Regulations The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.4-mile radius of the Brady, Curtis Field and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Brady NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. This action enhances the safety and management of the standard instrument approaches. 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. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with RULES Lists of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

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 corrects an error in the header of the airspace legal description 
of the Class E airspace designated as an extension to the Class E 
surface area at Columbus Municipal Airport, Columbus, NE.

History

    The FAA discovered an error in the header of the airspace legal 
description for the Class E airspace designated as an extension to the 
Class E surface area at Columbus Municipal Airport, Columbus, NE, 
published in the Federal Register (83 FR 38253; August 6, 2018). The 
state in the header of the airspace

[[Page 20259]]

legal description incorrectly listed MO instead of NE as listed in the 
city and state in the header. This action corrects that error and does 
not affect the boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6004 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 by correcting the state (formerly MO) listed in the header of 
the airspace legal description for the Class E airspace designated as 
an extension to the Class E surface area at Columbus Municipal Airport, 
Columbus, NE.
    This is an administrative change that does not affect the airspace 
boundaries or operating requirements, and, therefore, notice and public 
procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

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.
