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,

[[Page 47414]]

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 
supports the establishment of Class D airspace and Class E airspace 
designated as a surface area at Beech Factory Airport, Wichita, KS, to 
support instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 28436; June 19, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2017-0890 to 
propose establishment of Class D and E airspace designated as surface 
area, at Beech Factory Airport, Wichita, KS. 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 D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 
and 6002, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 3, 2018, 
and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 
14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and 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 3, 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 establishes the Class D airspace at Beech Factory Airport, 
Wichita, KS, extending upward from the surface to and including 2,700 
feet MSL within a 4.2-mile radius of Beech Factory Airport, excluding 
that airspace within the McConnell AFB, KS, excluding that airspace 
north of a line extending from lat. 37[deg]43'07'' N, long. 
97[deg]17'51'' W to lat. 37[deg]43'47'' N, long. 97[deg]08'21'' W, 
within the Colonel James Jabara Airport, Wichita, KS.
    Establishing Class E airspace area designated as surface area at 
Beech Factory Airport, Wichita, KS, extending upward from the surface 
to and including 2,700 feet MSL within a 4.2-mile radius of Beech 
Factory Airport, excluding that airspace within the McConnell AFB, 
Class D airspace area, and excluding that airspace north of a line 
extending from lat. 37[deg]43'07'' N, long. 97[deg]17'51'' W to lat. 
37[deg]43'47'' N, long. 97[deg]08'21'' W, within the Colonel James 
Jabara Airport, Wichita, KS.
    Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) for IFR operations at 
this 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, 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.
