Download as PDF 49012 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 181 / Wednesday, September 18, 2019 / Rules and Regulations safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends the Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fairmont Municipal Airport, Fairmont, MN, to support IFR operations at this airport. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 33194; July 12, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0471 to amend the Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fairmont Municipal Airport, Fairmont, 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 6002 and 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, 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. This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Fairmont VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, 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 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. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Environmental Review The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71: Amends the Class E surface airspace to within a 4.1-mile radius (increased from a 4-mile radius) of the Fairmont Municipal Airport, Fairmont, MN; removes the extensions to the airspace, as they are no longer needed; updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautic database; and updates the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ with ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.6-mile radius (increased from a 6.5-mile radius) of the Fairmont Municipal Airport; removes the extensions, as they are no longer required; and updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

    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 the Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface and establishes a 
Class E airspace area designated as an extension to a Class C surface 
area at Huntsville International-Carl T. Jones Field, Huntsville, AL, 
to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 33196; July 12, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0530 to 
amend the Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface and establish a Class E airspace 
area designated as an extension to a Class C surface area at Huntsville 
International-Carl T. Jones Field, Huntsville, AL. 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 6002, 
6003, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8,

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.
