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 Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, UT, 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 5176; January 29, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2019–1069 to amend Class E airspace at Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, UT. 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 E2, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in paragraphs 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.

The surface airspace extension is designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface. The amended surface area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and 1 mile each side of the 047° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2mile radius to 5.4 miles northeast of the Bryce Canyon Airport. Also, this action amends Class E airspace by establishing an area, designated as an extension to a surface area, to the southwest of the airport. This area is also designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface and is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within 1 mile each side of the 227° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 7.8 miles southwest of the Bryce Canyon Airport. Additionally, this action amends Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, by reducing the area to the east and southeast of the airport. This area is designed to contain IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface and IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. This area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within 8 miles north and 4.2 miles south of the 047° bearing from the airport, extending from the airport to 16 miles northeast of the airport, and with 8 miles north and 4.2 miles south of the 227° bearing from the airport, extending from the airport to 16 miles southwest of Bryce Canyon Airport. Further, this action removes 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. Lastly, this action makes an administrative update to the Class E surface airspace’s legal descriptions. The surface airspace should be in effect full time. The following two sentences do not accurately reflect the time of use and are removed. ‘‘This Class E airspace area is effective during specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Airport/Facility Directory.’’ FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:06 Apr 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 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.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E airspace at Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, 
UT.

[[Page 20593]]

This action amends Class E airspace, designated as a surface area, by 
adding a small extension to the northeast of the airport. The surface 
airspace extension is designed to contain IFR aircraft descending below 
1,000 feet above the surface. The amended surface area is described as 
follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within a 4.2-
mile radius of the airport, and 1 mile each side of the 047[deg] 
bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 5.4 
miles northeast of the Bryce Canyon Airport.
    Also, this action amends Class E airspace by establishing an area, 
designated as an extension to a surface area, to the southwest of the 
airport. This area is also designed to contain IFR aircraft descending 
below 1,000 feet above the surface and is described as follows: That 
airspace extending upward from the surface within 1 mile each side of 
the 227[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile 
radius to 7.8 miles southwest of the Bryce Canyon Airport.
    Additionally, this action amends Class E airspace, extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface, by reducing the area to the east and 
southeast of the airport. This area is designed to contain IFR arrivals 
descending below 1,500 feet above the surface and IFR departures until 
reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. This area is described as 
follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within 8 miles north and 4.2 miles south of the 047[deg] bearing from 
the airport, extending from the airport to 16 miles northeast of the 
airport, and with 8 miles north and 4.2 miles south of the 227[deg] 
bearing from the airport, extending from the airport to 16 miles 
southwest of Bryce Canyon Airport.
    Further, this action removes 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.
    Lastly, this action makes an administrative update to the Class E 
surface airspace's legal descriptions. The surface airspace should be 
in effect full time. The following two sentences do not accurately 
reflect the time of use and are removed. ``This Class E airspace area 
is effective during specific dates and times established in advance by 
a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be 
continuously published in the Airport/Facility Directory.''
    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.
