SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 E:\FR\FM\29JNR1.SGM 29JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 122 / Tuesday, June 29, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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 the Class E airspace at Anaktuvuk Pass Airport, Anaktuvuk Pass, AK, to ensure the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 18490; April 9, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0225 to modify the Class E airspace at Anaktuvuk Pass Airport, Anaktuvuk Pass, AK. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The NPRM for this action proposed to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Anaktuvuk Pass Airport. However, after the publication of the NPRM, the FAA determined that a previous Final Rule (76 FR 78144; December 16, 2011) for Docket No. FAA–2011–0867 established Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface within a 66-mile radius of the airport. This airspace area was not included in the Class E5 airspace description published in FAA Order 7400.11E. Since Class E airspace, extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface, already exists for the airport, the FAA is not modifying this airspace area. The airspace area has been added to the Class E5 airspace legal description. Class E5 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. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference 16:11 Jun 28, 2021 Jkt 253001 This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 modifies the Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Anaktuvuk Pass Airport, Anaktuvuk Pass, AK. The modification properly sizes the airspace to contain IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface, and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. The airspace’s circular radius is reduced from 6.4 miles to 4 miles and three areas are added to the 4-mile radius. Two areas northeast of the airport and one area southwest of the airport. This action also removes the Anaktuvuk Pass NDB from the Class E5 text header and airspace description. The Navigational Aid (NAVAID) is not needed to describe the airspace and removal of the NAVAID simplifies the airspace’s description. This action also updates the airport’s geographical coordinates to ‘‘lat. 68°08′01″ N, long. 151°44′36″ W.’’ 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 under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points.

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

[[Page 34131]]

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 the 
Class E airspace at Anaktuvuk Pass Airport, Anaktuvuk Pass, AK, to 
ensure the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 18490; April 9, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0225 to 
modify the Class E airspace at Anaktuvuk Pass Airport, Anaktuvuk Pass, 
AK. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    The NPRM for this action proposed to establish Class E airspace 
extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Anaktuvuk Pass 
Airport. However, after the publication of the NPRM, the FAA determined 
that a previous Final Rule (76 FR 78144; December 16, 2011) for Docket 
No. FAA-2011-0867 established Class E airspace extending upward from 
1,200 feet above the surface within a 66-mile radius of the airport. 
This airspace area was not included in the Class E5 airspace 
description published in FAA Order 7400.11E. Since Class E airspace, 
extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface, already exists for 
the airport, the FAA is not modifying this airspace area. The airspace 
area has been added to the Class E5 airspace legal description.
    Class E5 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.

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 part 71 modifies the Class E airspace, 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Anaktuvuk Pass 
Airport, Anaktuvuk Pass, AK. The modification properly sizes the 
airspace to contain IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet above the 
surface, and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the 
surface. The airspace's circular radius is reduced from 6.4 miles to 4 
miles and three areas are added to the 4-mile radius. Two areas 
northeast of the airport and one area southwest of the airport.
    This action also removes the Anaktuvuk Pass NDB from the Class E5 
text header and airspace description. The Navigational Aid (NAVAID) is 
not needed to describe the airspace and removal of the NAVAID 
simplifies the airspace's description.
    This action also updates the airport's geographical coordinates to 
``lat. 68[deg]08'01'' N, long. 151[deg]44'36'' W.''
    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 
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 the preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
