FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. Regulatory Notices and Analyses § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, is amended as follows: ■ Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth. 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 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION 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.

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 Class D and Class E airspace at Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport, Yakima, WA, 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 40140; July 6, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0606 to modify Class D and Class E airspace at Yakima E:\FR\FM\05OCR1.SGM 05OCR1 62574 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 193 / Monday, October 5, 2020 / Rules and Regulations Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport, Yakima, WA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Two comments in favor of the proposed changes were received. Class D, E2, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, 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. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations part 71 modifies Class D airspace at Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport. The airspace area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 3,600 feet MSL within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 2.6 miles each side of the 103° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 8.8 miles east of the airport, and within 2.3 miles each side of the 289° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2mile radius to 6.9 miles west of Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport. 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 modifies Class E airspace, designated as a surface area, to be coincident with the new Class D dimensions. The airspace area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the surface within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 2.6 miles each side of the 103° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 8.8 miles east of the airport, and within 2.3 miles each side of the 289° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 6.9 miles west of Yakima Air VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:09 Oct 02, 2020 Jkt 253001 Terminal/McAllister Field 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 revokes Class E airspace, designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. This area is not required based on the instrument procedures published for the airport. Further, this action modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. This airspace area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 3.4 miles each side of the 107° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 11.3 miles east of the airport, and within 3.6 miles each side of the 290° bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile radius to 11.6 miles west of Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport. This action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface. This area is wholly contained within Class E en route airspace which overlies the entire Yakima area, duplication is not necessary. The action removes the Yakima VOR and all references to the VOR from the Class E5 legal description. The navigational aid is not needed to define the airspace. Removal of the navigational aid allows the airspace to be defined from a single reference point, which simplifies how the airspace is described. Lastly, this action implements administrative corrections to the airspaces’ legal descriptions. The airport name on the second line of the text header does not match the FAA database and is updated to ‘‘Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport’’. The airport’s geographic coordinates do not match the FAA database and are updated to ‘‘lat. 46°34′05″ N, long. 120°32′39″ W.’’ The last sentence in the Class D and Class E surface airspace area’s legal descriptions contain outdated verbiage, the term ‘‘Airport/ Facility Directory’’ is updated to’’ Chart Supplement’’. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments.

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 Class D and Class E airspace at Yakima Air Terminal/
McAllister Field Airport, Yakima, WA, 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 40140; July 6, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0606 to 
modify Class D and Class E airspace at Yakima

[[Page 62574]]

Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport, Yakima, WA. Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Two comments in favor of 
the proposed changes were received.
    Class D, E2, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 
7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations part 71 
modifies Class D airspace at Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field 
Airport. The airspace area is described as follows: That airspace 
extending upward from the surface to and including 3,600 feet MSL 
within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 2.6 miles each side 
of the 103[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile 
radius to 8.8 miles east of the airport, and within 2.3 miles each side 
of the 289[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile 
radius to 6.9 miles west of Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field 
Airport. 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 modifies Class E airspace, designated as a surface 
area, to be coincident with the new Class D dimensions. The airspace 
area is described as follows: That airspace extending upward from the 
surface within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 2.6 miles 
each side of the 103[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 
4.2-mile radius to 8.8 miles east of the airport, and within 2.3 miles 
each side of the 289[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 
4.2-mile radius to 6.9 miles west of Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister 
Field 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 revokes Class E airspace, designated as 
an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. This area is not 
required based on the instrument procedures published for the airport.
    Further, this action modifies Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface. This airspace area is described as 
follows: That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within a 4.2-mile radius of the airport, and within 3.4 miles each side 
of the 107[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-mile 
radius to 11.3 miles east of the airport, and within 3.6 miles each 
side of the 290[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.2-
mile radius to 11.6 miles west of Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field 
Airport.
    This action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface. This area is wholly contained within Class E en 
route airspace which overlies the entire Yakima area, duplication is 
not necessary.
    The action removes the Yakima VOR and all references to the VOR 
from the Class E5 legal description. The navigational aid is not needed 
to define the airspace. Removal of the navigational aid allows the 
airspace to be defined from a single reference point, which simplifies 
how the airspace is described.
    Lastly, this action implements administrative corrections to the 
airspaces' legal descriptions. The airport name on the second line of 
the text header does not match the FAA database and is updated to 
``Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Airport''. The airport's 
geographic coordinates do not match the FAA database and are updated to 
``lat. 46[deg]34'05'' N, long. 120[deg]32'39'' W.'' The last sentence 
in the Class D and Class E surface airspace area's legal descriptions 
contain outdated verbiage, the term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' is 
updated to'' Chart Supplement''.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

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.
