Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 126 / Tuesday, June 30, 2020 / Rules and Regulations submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No negative comments were received. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000 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 part 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. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES The Rule The amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class D airspace at Bogue Field Marine Corps Auxiliary Field, Bogue, NC, by updating the geographic coordinates, and removes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Bogue Field Marine Corps Auxiliary Field, Bogue, NC as the airport has no instrument approaches. This action enhances the safety and management of controlled airspace within the national airspace system. This action also replaces the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal description of associated Class D airspace. These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations at this 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. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:54 Jun 29, 2020 Jkt 250001 39069 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. ASO NC E5 Bogue, NC [Removed] Environmental Review [FR Doc. 2020–13994 Filed 6–29–20; 8:45 am] 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.

Background On February 25, 2020, the FAA published the PPD final rule (85 FR 10896).

Pilot Professional Development; Technical Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making technical 
amendments to the Pilot Professional Development (PPD) final rule, 
which was published on February 25, 2020. That document inadvertently 
failed to update two cross-references. This document corrects the final 
regulations.

DATES: Effective June 30, 2020.

Division (AFS-200), Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation 
Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20591;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Good Cause for Adoption Without Prior Notice

    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 
U.S.C. 551 et seq.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and 
comment procedures for rules when the agency for ``good cause'' finds 
that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest.'' Section 553(d)(3) of the APA requires that 
agencies publish a rule not less than 30 days before its effective 
date, except as otherwise provided by the agency for good cause found 
and published with the rule.
    Because this action merely makes technical amendments to a 
published

[[Page 39070]]

final rule, the FAA finds that notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds that good 
cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for making this rule effective in 
less than 30 days.

Background

    On February 25, 2020, the FAA published the PPD final rule (85 FR 
10896). After that rule was published, the FAA discovered two minor 
errors in Sec.  121.409 and Sec.  121.424 of Title 14 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations that require correction. Section 121.409(c)(1) 
erroneously references Sec.  121.424(d). This final rule redesignated 
Sec.  121.424(d) as Sec.  121.424(e). Additionally, the newly finalized 
Sec.  121.424(f) erroneously references Sec.  121.424(b)(2), which was 
redesignated in the PPD final rule as Sec.  121.424(c)(2).

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 121

    Air carriers, airmen, aviation safety, charter flights, reporting 
and recordkeeping requirements, safety, transportation.

    Accordingly, FAA corrects 14 CFR part 121 by making the following 
technical corrections:
