Proposed Amendment of Class D and E Airspace; Mountain Home, ID, 20451-20453 [2020-07698]

Download as PDF 20451 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 71 / Monday, April 13, 2020 / Proposed Rules the 4.3-mile radius to 6.3 miles northeast of the airport, and within 1 mile each side of the 217° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.3-mile radius to 4.7 miles southwest of the Durango-La Plata County Airport. This Class E airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement. Additionally, this action proposes to amend Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, to properly contain arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface and departing IFR aircraft until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. The area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.1mile radius of the airport, and within 1.6 miles each side of the 044° bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.1mile radius to 12.4 miles northeast of the airport, and within 1 mile each side of the 217° bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.1-mile radius to 6.7 miles southwest of the Durango-La Plata County Airport. Further, this action proposes to remove the Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface, this airspace is wholly contained within the Denver en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. This action also proposes to remove the Durango VOR/DME and associated extensions from the airspace legal descriptions. The Navigational Aid is not required to define the airspace. Lastly, this action proposes to make several administrative corrections to the airspace legal descriptions. The geographic coordinates do not match the FAA database and should be updated to lat. 37°09′06″ N. long. 107°45′14″ W. The term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ in the Class E airspace, designated as a surface area, is outdated and should read ‘‘Chart Supplement’’. Class E2 and E5 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 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Apr 10, 2020 Jkt 250001 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 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.

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 amending the Class D airspace at the Mountain Home Air Force Base Airport by removing the extensions to the northwest and southeast of the airport. Based on the instrument approach procedures published for the airport, the extensions are no longer required to contain arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface. The Class D area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 5,500 feet MSL within a 5-mile radius of Mountain Home AFB. This Class D airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement. This action also proposes to amend the Class E surface area to match the new dimensions of the Class D. The amended Class E surface area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within a 5-mile radius of Mountain Home AFB.

A notice of proposed rulemaking, FAA–2019– 0972, has been published to establish Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface, for Mountain Home Municipal Airport. Lastly, this action proposes two administrative corrections to the airspace legal descriptions. The term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ in the Class D description is outdated and should read ‘‘Chart Supplement’’. The Class E surface area is part-time and should include the following language in the legal description: This Class E airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen.

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 amending the Class D airspace at the 
Mountain Home Air Force Base Airport by removing the extensions to the 
northwest and southeast of the airport. Based on the instrument 
approach procedures published for the airport, the extensions are no 
longer required to contain arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 
feet above the surface. The Class D area would be described as follows: 
That airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 5,500 
feet MSL within a 5-mile radius of Mountain Home AFB. This Class D 
airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times 
established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and 
time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement.
    This action also proposes to amend the Class E surface area to 
match the new dimensions of the Class D. The amended Class E surface 
area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 
the surface within a 5-mile radius of Mountain Home AFB. This Class E 
airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times 
established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and 
time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement.
    Additionally, this action proposes to amend the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface by properly sizing the 
area to contain arriving IFR aircraft descending below

[[Page 20453]]

1,500 feet above the surface and departing IFR aircraft until reaching 
1,200 feet above the surface. This amended area would be described as 
follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within a 7.2-mile radius of Mountain Home AFB.
    This action also proposes to properly size the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface to contain IFR 
aircraft transitioning to/from the en route environment. This amended 
area would be described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 
1,200 feet above the surface within a 30-mile radius of Mountain Home 
AFB.
    Further, this action proposes to remove Mountain Home Municipal 
Airport from the Class E airspace description, extending upward from 
700 feet or more above the surface. A notice of proposed rulemaking, 
FAA-2019-0972, has been published to establish Class E airspace, 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface, for Mountain 
Home Municipal Airport.
    Lastly, this action proposes two administrative corrections to the 
airspace legal descriptions. The term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' in 
the Class D description is outdated and should read ``Chart 
Supplement''. The Class E surface area is part-time and should include 
the following language in the legal description: This Class E airspace 
area is effective during the specific dates and times established in 
advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will 
thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement.
    Class D, E2, and E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 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 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 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

    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.
