Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Columbus, OH, 28729-28731 [2021-11230]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 102 / Friday, May 28, 2021 / Proposed Rules Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend 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 Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within an 8.7mile (increased from a 7-mile) radius of Eveleth-Virginia Municipal Airport, Eveleth, MN; and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is necessary due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Eveleth NDB. 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 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. 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:44 May 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 Environmental Review DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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 Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by:
    Amending the Class D airspace at Ohio State University Airport, 
Columbus Ohio by removing the name of the airport from the header of 
the airspace legal description to comply with changes to FAA Order 
7400.2M, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; removing the city 
associated with the airport in the airspace legal description to comply 
with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M; updating the geographic coordinates 
of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; and 
replacing the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with ``Chart 
Supplement'';
    Amending the Class D airspace to within a 4.6-mile (increased from 
a 4.5-mile) radius of Rickenbacker International Airport, Columbus, OH; 
removing the airport name from the header of the airspace legal 
description to comply with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M; and removing 
the city associated with the airport to comply with changes to FAA 
Order 7400.2M;
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to within a 7.5-mile (increased from a 7-mile) radius 
of John Glenn Columbus International Airport, Columbus, OH; updating 
the name of John Glenn Columbus International Airport (previously Port 
Columbus International Airport) to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database; removing the cities associated with the airports to comply 
with changes to FAA Order 7400.2M; within a 7.1-mile (increased from a 
7-mile) radius of Rickenbacker International Airport; within 4 miles 
each side of the 045[deg] bearing from Rickenbacker International 
Airport extending from the 7.1-mile (previously 7-mile) radius to 12.6 
miles (increased from 12.5 miles) northeast of the Rickenbacker 
International Airport; updating the geographic coordinates of Ohio 
State University Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database; removing Dan Darby Airport, Columbus, OH, and the associated 
airspace as the instrument procedures at this airport have been 
cancelled and the airspace is no longer required; and removing the 
exclusionary language from the airspace legal description as it is not 
required.
    This action is necessary due to airspace reviews caused by the 
decommissioning of the Rickenbacker International Airport runway 5R 
middle maker and the cancellation of the instrument procedures at Dan 
Darby Airport, Columbus, OH.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 
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 D and 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.

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 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
