Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 62 / Tuesday, March 31, 2020 / Rules and Regulations 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 would amend Class E airspace at Mountain Home Municipal Airport, Mountain Home, ID, to ensure the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (85 FR 2328; January 15, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2019–0972 to establish Class E airspace at Mountain Home Municipal Airport, Mountain Home, ID. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. 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 designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Mountain Home Municipal Airport, Mountain Home, ID. The new airspace will support a new RNAV procedure as well as currently published IFR arrival and departure procedures for the airport. The first area extends upward from 700 feet above the surface and, to the extent possible, will contain IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:11 Mar 30, 2020 Jkt 250001 above the surface and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. This airspace area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 5.5-mile radius of the airport, and within 2 miles each side of the 300° bearing from the airport, extending from the 5.5-mile radius to 8 miles northwest of the Mountain Home Municipal Airport, excluding that airspace within Mountain Home Air Force Base’s Class D and Class E2 surface areas. The second area is designed to contain IFR aircraft transitioning to/ from the en route environment. This area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 20-mile radius of the Mountain Home Municipal 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, 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. 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: 

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 would amend Class E airspace at Bend Municipal Airport, Bend, OR, 
to ensure the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) 
operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 2327; January 15, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0887 to 
amend Class E airspace at Bend Municipal Airport, Bend, OR. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Three comments 
were received.
    One comment discussed the requirement for ATC to have a 
communications capability, to the runway, with aircraft that normally 
operate within the surface area. Seattle Air Route Traffic Control 
Center confirmed this capability in August of 2019.
    Two comments in favor of the airspace amendments we submitted.
    Class E2, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 6002, 6004 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 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 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E airspace by adding an area, designated as a 
surface area, at Bend Municipal Airport, Bend, OR. The area is 
described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface 
within a 3.9-mile radius of the airport excluding that airspace within 
1 mile of a point in space located at latitude 44[deg]02'51'' N 
longitude 121[deg]16'30'' W.
    This action also amends the Class E airspace by adding an area 
designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. The 
area properly contains IFR arrivals descending below 1,000 feet above 
the surface of the earth and is described as follow: That airspace 
extending upward from the surface within 1 mile each side of the 
167[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 3.9-mile radius 
to 6.8 miles south of the Bend Municipal Airport.
    Additionally, the action amends Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface, to properly contain IFR aircraft on 
instrument approach when descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. 
The area also properly contains IFR departures until reaching 1,200 
feet above the surface. The area is described as follows: That airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.4-mile 
radius of the airport and within 1.1 miles each side of the 167[deg] 
bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 8.8 
miles south of the airport, and within 3.8 miles each side of the 
338[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.8-mile radius 
to 8.4 miles north of the Bend Municipal 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, 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.

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

[[Page 17747]]

no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
