Authority for This Rulemaking The Rule 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 establishes Class E airspace and amends Class D airspace for East Hampton Airport, East The FAA amends 14 CFR part 71 by establishing Class E surface airspace for East Hampton Airport, East Hampton, NY, providing the controlled airspace required to support aircraft landing and departing in IFR conditions at this airport.

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 establishes Class E airspace and amends Class D airspace for East 
Hampton Airport, East Hampton, NY, to support IFR operations in the 
area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 37941, July 19, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0170 to 
establish Class E surface airspace for East Hampton Airport, East 
Hampton, NY, to assist aircraft landing and departing the airport when 
the air traffic control tower is closed, and amend Class D airspace by 
replacing the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term 
Chart Supplement in the airport description, and amend the radius and 
ceiling as the FAA deemed the airspace adjustments were necessary.
    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 5000 and 
6002, respectively, of FAA Order JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, 
and effective September 15, 2021, 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.

The Rule

    The FAA amends 14 CFR part 71 by establishing Class E surface 
airspace for East Hampton Airport, East Hampton, NY, providing the 
controlled airspace required to support aircraft landing and departing 
in IFR conditions at this airport. In addition, this action amends 
Class D airspace by decreasing the radius to 4.2 miles (from 4.8) and 
the ceiling to 2,000 feet MSL (from 2,500), and replacing the outdated

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 an 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 5-6.5a. 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.
