Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Alpine, WY, 67383-67385 [2019-26378]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 10, 2019 / Proposed Rules The FAA proposes to remove the airway segment between the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME and the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME. The unaffected portions of the existing airway would remain as charted. V–115: V–115 currently extends between the Crestview, FL, VORTAC and Franklin, PA, VOR/DME. The FAA proposes to remove the airway segment between the Parkersburg, WV, VORTAC, and the Franklin, PA, VOR/DME. The unaffected portions of the existing airway would remain as charted. V–117: V–117 currently extends between the Parkersburg, WV; VORTAC and the intersection of the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME 044° radial and the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME 099° radial (WISKE fix). The FAA proposes to redefine the WISKE fix as the intersection of the existing Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME 044° radial and the new Briggs, OH, 136°(T)/140°(M) radial. The existing airway would remain as charted. All radials in the route descriptions below that do not reflect True (T)/ Magnetic (M) degree radial information are unchanged and stated in True degrees.

The ATS routes listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (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 proposed 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. 16:46 Dec 09, 2019 Jkt 250001 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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 Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at the Alpine Airport, 
Alpine, WY. The establishment of the new Class E airspace will support 
the airport's transition from VFR to IFR operations. Specifically, it 
will, to the extent possible, contain IFR departures until reaching 
1,200 feet above the surface and IFR arrivals when descending below 
1,500 feet above the surface.
    The airspace will extend upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within a 4.0-mile radius to the airport, and within 1 mile each side of 
the 179[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.0-mile 
radius to 5.8 south of the airport, and within 1.8 miles each side of 
the 321[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.0-mile 
radius to 10.5 miles northwest of the airport.
    Finally, an additional Class E airspace area will extend upward 
from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 13-mile radius of the 
airport.
    Class E5 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 proposed 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 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.
