ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action establishes a Class E surface area, Class E airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA. 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. DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, September 10, 2020. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under Title 1 Code of Federal Regulations part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

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 establishes new Class E surface airspace, Class E airspace as an extension to the Class E surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet at Port Angeles CGAS, 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 10626; February 25, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2019–1023 to establish Class E airspace at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA, in support of IFR operations at the airport. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. After publication of the NPRM, the FAA realized that it had inadvertently used AWP in the description headings instead of ANM. This is corrected in the final rule. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39475 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 establishing a Class E surface area, Class E airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above ground level at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA. This action is being submitted coincidental with FAA proposal, Docket No. FAA–2019–1022; 19–ANM–81 to modify Class E airspace for William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. That action will modify the airspace at William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA, to only that needed for their operations and remove the airspace that was previously used to support operations at Port Angeles CGAS. This action will provide the airspace needed for Port Angeles CGAS operations to facilitate training and mission accomplishment. The Class E surface area will be established to within 1.5 miles of the airport. A Class E extension to the surface area will be established 2.1 miles both sides of the 80° bearing from the Port Angeles CGAS, extending from William R Fairchild surface area 4.1mile radius to 5.6 miles east of the Port Angeles CGAS. This area will provide airspace for the Copter NDB 242 approach, as aircraft descend through 1000 feet AGL. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be established to 3 miles south and 7.5 miles north of the 80° bearing from the Port Angeles CGAS Airport to 11 miles east, excluding that portion in Canadian airspace. This area will provide airspace for the Copter 242 approach, as aircraft descend through 1,500 feet. This airspace will support IFR operations at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA.

SUMMARY: This action establishes a Class E surface area, Class E 
airspace as an extension to the surface area and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Port Angeles CGAS, 
Port Angeles, WA. 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.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, September 10, 2020. The Director of the

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 establishes new Class E surface airspace, Class E airspace as an 
extension to the Class E surface area and Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet at Port Angeles CGAS, 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 10626; February 25, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2019-1023 
to establish Class E airspace at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, WA, 
in support of IFR operations at the airport. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    After publication of the NPRM, the FAA realized that it had 
inadvertently used AWP in the description headings instead of ANM. This 
is corrected in the final rule.
    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 establishing a Class E surface area, Class E airspace as an 
extension to the surface area and Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above ground level at Port Angeles CGAS, Port Angeles, 
WA.
    This action is being submitted coincidental with FAA proposal, 
Docket No. FAA-2019-1022; 19-ANM-81 to modify Class E airspace for 
William R Fairchild International Airport, Port Angeles, WA. That 
action will modify the airspace at William R Fairchild International 
Airport, Port Angeles, WA, to only that needed for their operations and 
remove the airspace that was previously used to support operations at 
Port Angeles CGAS. This action will provide the airspace needed for 
Port Angeles CGAS operations to facilitate training and mission 
accomplishment.
    The Class E surface area will be established to within 1.5 miles of 
the airport. A Class E extension to the surface area will be 
established 2.1 miles both sides of the 80[deg] bearing from the Port 
Angeles CGAS, extending from William R Fairchild surface area 4.1-mile 
radius to 5.6 miles east of the Port Angeles CGAS. This area will 
provide airspace for the Copter NDB 242 approach, as aircraft descend 
through 1000 feet AGL.
    The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be 
established to 3 miles south and 7.5 miles north of the 80[deg] bearing 
from the Port Angeles CGAS Airport to 11 miles east, excluding that 
portion in Canadian airspace. This area will provide airspace for the 
Copter 242 approach, as aircraft descend through 1,500 feet. This 
airspace will support IFR operations at Port Angeles CGAS, 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.
