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 amends the Class E surface airspace and establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL at Coeur D’Alene-Pappy Boyington Field, Coeur D’Alene, ID, to support the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations under standard instrument approach and departure procedures at the airport, for the safety and management of aircraft within the National Airspace System. Additionally, an editorial change is being made to the legal description replacing ‘‘Airport/ Facility Directory’’ with the term ‘‘Chart Supplement’’ and updating the name of the airport to match the FAA aeronautical database. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (85 FR 47718; August 6, 2020) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0552 to amend the Class E surface airspace, and establish the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the earth at Coeur D’Alene-Pappy Boyington Field, Coeur D’Alene, ID in support of IFR operations.

FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending the description of the Class E surface area and establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Coeur D’Alene-Pappy Boyington Field, Coeur D’Alene, ID. The Class E surface airspace 3.5 miles each side of the VOR/DME 251° radial west of the airport is being removed. The lateral boundary for the area south of the airport is reduced from 1.8 miles each side of the 183° bearing to 1.3 miles and extend 6 miles from the airport instead of 8 miles. The additional airspace, in these two areas, is no longer required to support instrument operations. An area 1.8 miles each side of the 023° bearing is being added and extends 5 miles from the airport. This enables instrument departures to reach 700 feet AGL before exiting the surface area. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is being established to within 4.4 miles of the airport with three areas extending beyond the 4.4-mile radius. One area, 4.4 miles each side of the 250° bearing, extends from the airport 14.4 miles west. This section accommodates the ILS and RNAV approaches. Another area is being established, 1.3 miles each side of the 183° bearing and extending from the airport 10 miles south, to support the VOR approach. The third area extends 1.8 miles each side of the 023° bearing 8 miles northeast from the airport. This section protects aircraft using the Obstacle Departure Procedure. This airspace is necessary to support IFR approach and departure procedures at the airport.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action amends and extends the Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) prohibiting certain flights in the specified areas of the Dnipropetrovsk Flight Information Region (FIR) (UKDV) by all: U.S. air carriers; U.S. commercial operators; persons exercising the privileges of an airman certificate issued by the FAA, except when such persons are operating U.S.-registered aircraft for a foreign air carrier; and operators of U.S.-registered civil aircraft, except when the operator of such aircraft is a foreign air carrier. The FAA finds this action necessary to address hazards to persons and aircraft engaged in such flight operations. However, due to changed conditions in Ukraine and the associated risks to U.S. civil aviation, this action does not extend the prohibition against certain flights in the specified areas of the Simferopol FIR (UKFV), which will expire on October 27, 2020. This action extends the expiration date of the prohibition against certain flights in the specified areas of the Dnipropetrovsk FIR (UKDV) from October 27, 2020, to October 27, 2021. Additionally, the FAA republishes the approval process and exemption information for this SFAR, consistent with other recently published flight prohibition SFARs, and makes minor administrative revisions.

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 (U.S.C.). 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 amends the Class E surface airspace and establishes 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL at Coeur D'Alene-
Pappy Boyington Field, Coeur D'Alene, ID, to support the Instrument 
Flight Rules (IFR) operations under standard instrument approach and 
departure procedures at the airport, for the safety and management of 
aircraft within the National Airspace System. Additionally, an 
editorial change is being made to the legal description replacing 
``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' and 
updating the name of the airport to match the FAA aeronautical 
database.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 47718; August 6, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0552 to 
amend the Class E surface airspace, and establish the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the earth at Coeur D'Alene-Pappy 
Boyington Field, Coeur D'Alene, ID in support of IFR operations. 
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 E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005 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 
D and Class E airspace designations 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

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending the description of 
the Class E surface area and establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Coeur D'Alene-Pappy Boyington 
Field, Coeur D'Alene, ID.
    The Class E surface airspace 3.5 miles each side of the VOR/DME 
251[deg] radial west of the airport is being removed. The lateral 
boundary for the area south of the airport is reduced from 1.8 miles 
each side of the 183[deg] bearing to 1.3 miles and extend 6 miles from 
the airport instead of 8 miles. The additional airspace, in these two 
areas, is no longer required to support instrument operations. An area 
1.8 miles each side of the 023[deg] bearing is being added and extends 
5 miles from the airport. This enables instrument departures to reach 
700 feet AGL before exiting the surface area.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
is being established to within 4.4 miles of the airport with three 
areas extending beyond the 4.4-mile radius. One area, 4.4 miles each 
side of the 250[deg] bearing, extends from the airport 14.4 miles west. 
This section accommodates the ILS and RNAV approaches. Another area is 
being established, 1.3 miles each side of the 183[deg] bearing and 
extending from the airport 10 miles south, to support the VOR approach. 
The third area extends 1.8 miles each side of the 023[deg] bearing 8 
miles northeast from the airport. This section protects aircraft using 
the Obstacle Departure Procedure. This airspace is necessary to support 
IFR approach and departure procedures at the airport.

[[Page 65678]]

    Additionally, an editorial change is being made to the legal 
description replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term 
``Chart Supplement'' and updating the name of the airport to match the 
FAA's aeronautical database.
    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 (E.O.) 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.
