Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Port Angeles, WA, 10626-10628 [2020-03580]

Download as PDF 10626 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 37 / Tuesday, February 25, 2020 / Proposed Rules The Proposal Environmental Review DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing two Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at the Wheatland County at Harlowton Airport, Harlowton, MT. The establishment of the Class E airspace area will facilitate the airport’s transition from VFR to IFR operations. Specifically, to the extent possible, it will contain IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. The first airspace area will extend upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 7.4-mile radius of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of the 279° bearing from the airport, extending from the 7.4-mile radius to 9.3 miles west of the Wheatland County at Harlowton. The second airspace area will extend upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 20-mile radius of the Wheatland County at Harlowton 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. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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. Federal Aviation Administration jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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 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. 18:35 Feb 24, 2020 Jkt 250001 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

AGENCY: This action proposes to establish a Class E surface area, Class E airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA. Following a review of the airspace serving Port Angeles CGAS and William R Fairchild International Airport, the FAA found it necessary to provide Port Angeles CGAS with airspace independent of the airspace for William R Fairchild Airport. A microclimate at Port Angeles CGAS causes weather patterns to vary from the weather at William R Fairchild Airport. The difference in weather between the two locations can negatively impact operations at Port Angeles CGAS, impeding training and mission accomplishment. This action would establish new airspace for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA.

SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish a Class E surface area, 
Class E airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Port 
Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA. Following a review of the airspace 
serving Port Angeles CGAS and William R Fairchild International 
Airport, the FAA found it necessary to provide Port Angeles CGAS with 
airspace independent of the airspace for William R Fairchild Airport. A 
microclimate at Port Angeles CGAS causes weather patterns to vary from 
the weather at William R Fairchild Airport. The difference in weather 
between the two locations can negatively impact operations at Port 
Angeles CGAS, impeding training and mission accomplishment. This action 
would establish new airspace for the safety and management of 
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Port Angeles CGAS, Port 
Angeles, WA.

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 establish Class E airspace at Port Angeles CGAS, Port 
Angeles, WA, in support of IFR operations at the airport.

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 a Class E surface area, 
Class E airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above ground level at Port 
Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA.
    This action is being submitted coincidental with FAA proposal, 
Docket No. FAA-2019-1022; 19-ANM-81 to modify Class E airspace for 
William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. That 
action would modify the airspace at William R Fairchild International 
Airport, Port Angeles, WA, to only that needed for their operations and 
remove the airspace that was previously used to support operations at 
Port Angeles CGAS.
    This action would provide the airspace needed for Port Angeles CGAS 
operations to facilitate training and mission accomplishment.
    The Class E surface area would be established to within 1.5 miles 
of the airport. A Class E extension to the surface area would be 
established 2.1 miles both sides of the 80[deg] bearing from the Port 
Angeles CGAS, extending from William R Fairchild surface area 4.1-mile 
radius to 5.6 miles east of the Port Angeles CGAS. This area would 
provide airspace for the Copter NDB 242 approach, as aircraft descend 
through 1000 feet AGL.
    The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL would be 
established to 3 miles south and 7.5 miles north of the 80[deg] bearing 
from the Port Angeles CGAS Airport to 11 miles east, excluding that 
portion in Canadian airspace.
    This area would provide airspace for the Copter 242 approach, as 
aircraft descend through 1500 feet. This airspace would support IFR 
operations at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, 6004 
and 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. 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,
