SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fosston Municipal Airport-Anderson Field, Fosston, MN, and Little Falls/Morrison County Airport-Lindbergh Field, Little Falls, MN, to support instrument flight rule operations at these airports. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 15795 History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 3894; January 15, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2020–1186 to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Fosston Municipal Airport-Anderson Field, Fosston, MN, and Little Falls/ Morrison County Airport-Lindbergh Field, Little Falls, MN. 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 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 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 This amendment to 14 CFR 71: Amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.3-mile (decreased from a 7-mile) radius of Fosston Municipal Airport-Anderson Field, Fosston, MN; adds an extension 1 mile each side of the 341° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.3mile radius to 6.5 miles north of the airport; and updates the name (previously Fosston Municipal Airport) of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.5-mile (decreased from a 7-mile) radius of Little Falls/Morrison County AirportLindbergh Field, Little Falls, MN; and updates the name (previously Little Falls-Morrison County Airport) and geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with 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 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, does 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 5–6.5.a. 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 amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Fosston Municipal Airport-Anderson Field, Fosston, MN, 
and Little Falls/Morrison County Airport-Lindbergh Field, Little Falls, 
MN, to support instrument flight rule operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 3894; January 15, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2020-1186 to 
amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Fosston Municipal Airport-Anderson Field, Fosston, MN, and 
Little Falls/Morrison County Airport-Lindbergh Field, Little Falls, MN. 
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 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 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

    This amendment to 14 CFR 71:
    Amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.3-mile (decreased from a 7-mile) radius of 
Fosston Municipal Airport-Anderson Field, Fosston, MN; adds an 
extension 1 mile each side of the 341[deg] bearing from the airport 
extending from the 6.3-mile radius to 6.5 miles north of the airport; 
and updates the name (previously Fosston Municipal Airport) of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to within a 6.5-mile (decreased from a 7-mile) radius 
of Little Falls/Morrison County Airport-Lindbergh Field, Little Falls, 
MN; and updates the name (previously Little Falls-Morrison County 
Airport) and geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of airspace reviews caused by the 
decommissioning of the Fosston and Little Falls non-federal NDBs which 
provided

navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports.
    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 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, does 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 5-6.5.a. 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.
