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.

Also, this action removes outdated airspace in the area. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (84 FR 40301, August 14, 2019) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0591 to establish Class E surface airspace at St. Simons Island Airport, St. Simons, GA, and Brunswick Golden Isle Airport, Brunswick, GA, and amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Brunswick, GA, by updating the airport names to St. Simons Island Airport (formerly Brunswick/MalcolmMcKinnon Airport), and Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (formerly Glynco Jetport Airport), and updating the geographic coordinates of St. Simons Island Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations at this airport. 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. 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 5–6.5a. 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.

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

[[Page 68040]]

scope of that authority as it establishes Class E airspace at St. 
Simons Island Airport, St. Simons, GA, and Brunswick Golden Isles 
Airport, Brunswick, GA, as well as amend Class E airspace in Brunswick, 
GA to support IFR operations in the area. Also, this action removes 
outdated airspace in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 40301, August 14, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0591 to 
establish Class E surface airspace at St. Simons Island Airport, St. 
Simons, GA, and Brunswick Golden Isle Airport, Brunswick, GA, and amend 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the 
surface at Brunswick, GA, by updating the airport names to St. Simons 
Island Airport (formerly Brunswick/Malcolm-McKinnon Airport), and 
Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (formerly Glynco Jetport Airport), and 
updating the geographic coordinates of St. Simons Island Airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One 
comment supporting the action was received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and 
effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 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

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E surface airspace at St. Simons Island 
Airport, St. Simons, GA, and Brunswick Golden Isle Airport, Brunswick, 
GA. Also, this action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet or more above the surface at Brunswick, GA, by updating the 
airport names to St. Simons Island Airport (formerly Brunswick/Malcolm-
McKinnon Airport), and Brunswick Golden Isles Airport (previously 
Glynco Jetport Airport). Also, the geographic coordinates of St. Simons 
Island Airport are adjusted to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database.
    These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of 
IFR operations at this airport.
    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. 
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 5-6.5a. 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.
