SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 Class E airspace to support a new RNAV procedure at WaldenJackson County Airport, Walden, CO. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 36501; July 29, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0372 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at WaldenJackson County Airport, Walden, CO. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment was received. The commenter recommended that no additional airspace be established for the airport. The commenter also recommended that the volume of air traffic into the airport be reduced in order to manage noise. Airspace actions do not control the volume of air traffic at airports; they are completed to protect IFR aircraft operating on approved procedures for a particular airport. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1.

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.

Additionally, this action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within 4 miles each side of the 342° bearing from the airport extending from the 5 mile radius to V–524 northwest of the WaldenJackson County Airport, Walden, CO. This action updates the airport’s geographic coordinates to match the FAA’s database.

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 Class E airspace to support a new RNAV procedure at 
Walden-Jackson County Airport, Walden, CO.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 36501; July 29, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0372 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
at Walden-Jackson County Airport, Walden, CO. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment was received. The 
commenter recommended that no additional airspace be established for 
the airport. The commenter also recommended that the volume of air 
traffic into the airport be reduced in order to manage noise. Airspace 
actions do not control the volume of air traffic at airports; they are 
completed to protect IFR aircraft operating on approved procedures for 
a particular airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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 designation 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 7400.11D, 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.

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 at Walden-Jackson County Airport, Walden, CO, within 4 
miles each side of the 227[deg] bearing from the airport extending from 
the 5 mile radius to 9.4 miles southwest of airport. Additionally, this 
action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within 4 miles each side of the 342[deg] bearing from the 
airport extending from the 5 mile radius to V-524 northwest of the 
Walden-Jackson County Airport, Walden, CO. This action updates the 
airport's geographic coordinates to match the FAA's database.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

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

[[Page 58600]]

``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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when 
promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
