SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Rule Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class E surface airspace for Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport, Bar Harbor, ME, by increasing the radius from 4.2 miles to 5.5 miles and eliminating the extensions off the 204° and 024° bearings, respectively. The Class E airspace extending up from 700 feet above the surface for Hancock County-Bar Harbor is amended by increasing the radius from 7.4 miles to 8.0 miles and adding an extension 3.7 miles each side of the Hancock CountyBar Harbor Airport 025° bearing extending from the 8.0-mile radius to 11.4 miles northeast of the airport. In addition, the geographical coordinates of Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport are updated to coincide with the FAA’s database. This action also establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Bar Harbor Heliport. These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations in the area.

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 and establishes Class E airspace in Bar Harbor, ME, to 
support IFR operations in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 24562, May 7, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0295 to 
amend Class E surface airspace and Class E airspace extending up from 
700 feet above the surface for Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport, Bar 
Harbor, ME. In addition, the geographical coordinates of Hancock 
County-Bar Harbor Airport would be updated. This action also proposed 
to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface for Bar Harbor Heliport.
    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 Paragraphs 6002 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 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 routes, and reporting 
points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class E surface 
airspace for Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport, Bar Harbor, ME, by 
increasing the radius from 4.2 miles to 5.5 miles and eliminating the 
extensions off the 204[deg] and 024[deg] bearings, respectively. The 
Class E airspace extending up from 700 feet above the surface for 
Hancock County-Bar Harbor is amended by increasing the radius from 7.4 
miles to 8.0 miles and adding an extension 3.7 miles each side of the 
Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport 025[deg] bearing extending from the 
8.0-mile radius to 11.4 miles northeast of the airport. In addition, 
the geographical coordinates of Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport are 
updated to coincide with the FAA's database. This action also 
establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface for Bar Harbor Heliport. These changes are necessary for 
continued safety and management of IFR operations in the area.
    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. 
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 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.

[[Page 40307]]

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.
