Amendment of Class E Airspace; Huntsville, AL, 5318-5320 [2020-01567]

Download as PDF 5318 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 20 / Thursday, January 30, 2020 / Rules and Regulations 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.

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.

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 amends the Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface airspace legal 
descriptions for Huntsville, AL

History

    The FAA published a Final Rule in the Federal Register (84 FR 
49012; September 18, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0530 amending the 
Class E surface airspace and the Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface and establishing a Class E airspace area 
designated as an extension to a Class C surface area at Huntsville 
International-Carl T. Jones Field, Huntsville, AL. In that action, the 
state identifier ``AL'' associated with Redstone AAF was inadvertently 
omitted from the airspace legal descriptions. This action corrects that 
error.
    This is an administrative change updating the airport reference for 
Redstone AAF to include the state identified ``AL'' in the airspace 
legal descriptions to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database and 
comply with FAA Order 7400.2M, and does not affect the boundaries, 
altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace.
    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 part 
71.1. The Class E airspace designations 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending the Class E surface airspace and the Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface airspace 
legal descriptions for Huntsville, AL, by updating the airport 
references for Redstone AAF to include the state identifier ``AL'' to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database and comply with FAA Order 
7400.2M.
    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedures Act (5. 
U.S.C.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and comment 
procedure when the agency for ``good cause'' finds that these 
procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest.'' This is an administrative change amending the name of 
Redstone AAF, AL, to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database and 
comply with FAA Order 7400.2M and does not affect the boundaries, 
altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace; therefore, notice 
and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    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 ``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
