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. 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.

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 modifies the existing Class E airspace and establishes new Class E airspace as an extension to the Class E surface area at William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA, in support of IFR operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (85 FR 8779; February 18, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2019–1022 to modify the existing Class E airspace and establish new Class E airspace as an extension to the Class E surface area at William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting E:\FR\FM\01JYR1.SGM 01JYR1 39474 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 127 / Wednesday, July 1, 2020 / Rules and Regulations written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Four comments were received. Two comments were in favor of the proposal and two were related to a proposal related to unmanned aircraft (UAV). The comments related to UAVs are not considered substantive to this proposal. 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.

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 The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending the Class E airspace description for William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. This action is being submitted coincidental with an FAA proposal, Docket No. FAA–2019–1023; 19–ANM– 94 to establish Class E airspace for Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA. That action will provide the airspace needed for independent operations at Port Angeles CGAS to facilitate training and mission accomplishment. This action will modify the airspace at William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA, to only that airspace needed for their operations. The Class E surface area will be modified to include the airspace within 4.1 miles of the airport from the 235° bearing clockwise to the 120° bearing and exclude the airspace within 1.5 miles of the Port Angeles CGAS. This exclusion will allow independent air traffic operations at the Port Angeles CGAS when weather conditions at this location varies from those at the William R Fairchild International Airport. A Class E extension to the surface area will be established 2 miles both sides of the 284° bearing extending from the 4.1mile radius to 8 miles west of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Jun 30, 2020 Jkt 250001 airport. This will provide the airspace required for the RNAV approach to runway 8, as aircraft descend through 1000 feet AGL. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be modified to within 4.1 miles of William R Fairchild International Airport and that area 3.1 miles on both sides of the 284° bearing from the airport to 11 miles west. This area will provide airspace for the RNAV and the ILS Approach to runway 8, as aircraft descend through 1500 feet. To the southeast, the airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be modified to 1-mile north and 4 miles south of the 105° bearing from the 4.1-mile radius to 7 miles from the airport. This action will remove the Class E surface airspace 3 miles north and 2.2 miles south of the William R Fairchild international Airport 079° bearing extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 11.4 miles east of the airport, as it is not needed for operations at William R. Fairchild airport. This airspace will support IFR operations at William R Fairchild Airport, Port Angeles, WA. 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.

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 will establish new airspace for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA.

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 modifies the existing Class E airspace and establishes new Class 
E airspace as an extension to the Class E surface area at William R 
Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA, in support of IFR 
operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 8779; February 18, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2019-1022 
to modify the existing Class E airspace and establish new Class E 
airspace as an extension to the Class E surface area at William R 
Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting

written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Four comments were 
received. Two comments were in favor of the proposal and two were 
related to a proposal related to unmanned aircraft (UAV). The comments 
related to UAVs are not considered substantive to this proposal.
    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.

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

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending the Class E airspace description for William R 
Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. This action is being 
submitted coincidental with an FAA proposal, Docket No. FAA-2019-1023; 
19-ANM-94 to establish Class E airspace for Port Angeles CGAS, Port 
Angeles, WA. That action will provide the airspace needed for 
independent operations at Port Angeles CGAS to facilitate training and 
mission accomplishment. This action will modify the airspace at William 
R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA, to only that 
airspace needed for their operations. The Class E surface area will be 
modified to include the airspace within 4.1 miles of the airport from 
the 235[deg] bearing clockwise to the 120[deg] bearing and exclude the 
airspace within 1.5 miles of the Port Angeles CGAS. This exclusion will 
allow independent air traffic operations at the Port Angeles CGAS when 
weather conditions at this location varies from those at the William R 
Fairchild International Airport.
    A Class E extension to the surface area will be established 2 miles 
both sides of the 284[deg] bearing extending from the 4.1-mile radius 
to 8 miles west of the airport. This will provide the airspace required 
for the RNAV approach to runway 8, as aircraft descend through 1000 
feet AGL.
    The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be 
modified to within 4.1 miles of William R Fairchild International 
Airport and that area 3.1 miles on both sides of the 284[deg] bearing 
from the airport to 11 miles west. This area will provide airspace for 
the RNAV and the ILS Approach to runway 8, as aircraft descend through 
1500 feet. To the southeast, the airspace extending upward from 700 
feet AGL will be modified to 1-mile north and 4 miles south of the 
105[deg] bearing from the 4.1-mile radius to 7 miles from the airport.
    This action will remove the Class E surface airspace 3 miles north 
and 2.2 miles south of the William R Fairchild international Airport 
079[deg] bearing extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 11.4 miles east 
of the airport, as it is not needed for operations at William R. 
Fairchild airport. This airspace will support IFR operations at William 
R Fairchild Airport, Port Angeles, WA.

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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, will 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.
