SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: 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 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Madera Municipal Airport, Madera, CA, and updates the airspace lateral dimensions to meet current requirements, to support IFR operations at the airport. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 25205; May 31, 2019) DOCKET NO.

Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The FAA received a single anonymous comment asking ‘‘[h]ow will this effect (sic) global warming?’’ The FAA does not find this a substantive comment to the proposal. The airspace does not control where aircraft fly but defines the area within which all aircraft operators are subject to operating rules and equipment requirements. 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 that Order. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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 The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Madera Municipal Airport, Madera, CA, eliminating references to the Clovis and Friant Very High Frequency Omni-Directional Range/Tactical Air Navigation Aids (VORTAC) from the legal description, as they are no longer needed. This action also updates the airport’s geographic coordinates to match the FAA’s aeronautical database. Finally, this action updates the lateral dimensions to meet current airspace requirements by removing 4.4 miles of airspace extending to the southeast, adding 0.4 miles to the radius around the Airport Reference Point and adding a portion that extends 1 mile each side of the 316° bearing from the 4.4 mile radius to 1.5 miles northwest. This action supports the operation of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) under standard instrument approach and departure procedures in the National Airspace System. PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 65669 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. Given this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will 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 5–6.5a. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 250001 The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 36502; July 29, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0535 to amend the legal description of the LAX Class D. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The FAA received a single comment. The commenter stated in full ‘‘I recommend keeping the language as part time and reducing light air traffic for public health and sound scape enhancements.’’ The FAA does not find this to be a substantive comment about the proposal. The specified airspace does not control where aircraft fly but defines the area within which all aircraft operators are subject to operating rules and equipment requirements.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. 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 The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by removing the language establishing the airspace as part time. NBAA informed the FAA that the LAX Class D legal description, the related chart supplement entry, and notes included on the VFR Sectional contained information that did not clearly identify when the airspace was in effect. The FAA concurs. The legal description contains language that implied the Class D airspace was part-time, inconsistent with the original intent of the airspace. The Chart Supplement does not include information indicating when the airspace is effective and directs users to the VFR Terminal Area Chart. The VFR Terminal Area Chart directs users to the Chart Supplement or NOTAMS for information and NOTAMS are not appropriate for this use. The original intent was to establish the Class D airspace as full time. In 2009, as a result of a mid-air collision in New York and in response to NTSB Recommendation A–09- 86, Congress requested the FAA evaluate low-level flight around heavyuse airspace. The FAA committed to evaluations of flight operations in and around Class Bravo Airspace in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston. The LAX VFR Airspace Taskforce was convened and made recommendations to modify the airspace around LAX in a two-step process. Step one was to establish fulltime Class D airspace at LAX. Step two was to incorporate the Class D airspace into the LAX Class B at a later date.

reporting points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet above the surface at Madera Municipal Airport, Madera, CA, 
eliminating references to the Clovis and Friant Very High Frequency 
Omni-Directional Range/Tactical Air Navigation Aids (VORTAC) from the 
legal description, as they are no longer needed. This action also 
updates the airport's geographic coordinates to match the FAA's 
aeronautical database. Finally, this action updates the lateral 
dimensions to meet current airspace requirements by removing 4.4 miles 
of airspace extending to the southeast, adding 0.4 miles to the radius 
around the Airport Reference Point and adding a portion that extends 1 
mile each side of the 316[deg] bearing from the 4.4 mile radius to 1.5 
miles northwest. This action supports the operation of Instrument 
Flight Rules (IFR) under standard instrument approach and departure 
procedures in the National Airspace System.

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. Given this is a routine matter 
that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will 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 5-6.5a. 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.
