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 promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 revokes the Class E airspace at Creech AFB Airport, Indian Springs, NV, to ensure the safety and management of operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 40790; July 29, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0591 to revoke the Class E airspace at Creech AFB Airport, Indian Springs, NV. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Two comments were received. One comment is in favor of the Class E airspace revocation and the other comment is opposed to the airspace revocation. The commenter who opposes the Class E revocation discussed concerns about the airspace’s future use. Class E airspace areas, extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth, are designated for airports with approved instrument approach procedure. Creech AFB Airport does not have approved instrument approach procedures, as such, the Class E airspace is being revoked. If the airport develops instrument procedures, the FAA will reevaluate the airspace to ensure containment of the instrument procedures. Class D and Class E5 airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, and 6005, 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 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 JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 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 revokes the Class E airspace extending E:\FR\FM\07OCR1.SGM 07OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 192 / Thursday, October 7, 2021 / Rules and Regulations lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with RULES1 upward from 700 feet above the surface at Creech AFB Airport, Indian Springs, NV. This type of Class E airspace is designed to contain instrument approach procedures. This Class E airspace area is not required because there are no instrument procedures published for Creech AFB Airport. This action also implements two administrative updates to the Class D legal description. The second line of the text header is updated from ‘‘Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field, NV’’ to ‘‘Creech AFB Airport, NV’’, to match the FAA database. Additionally, the third line of the text header is updated from ‘‘(lat. 36°35′14″ N, long. 115°40′24″ W)’’ to ‘‘(lat. 36°35′11″ N, long. 115°40′39″ W)’’, to match the FAA database.

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 revokes the Class E airspace at Creech AFB Airport, Indian 
Springs, NV, to ensure the safety and management of operations at the 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 40790; July 29, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0591 to 
revoke the Class E airspace at Creech AFB Airport, Indian Springs, NV. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Two 
comments were received. One comment is in favor of the Class E airspace 
revocation and the other comment is opposed to the airspace revocation.
    The commenter who opposes the Class E revocation discussed concerns 
about the airspace's future use. Class E airspace areas, extending 
upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth, are 
designated for airports with approved instrument approach procedure. 
Creech AFB Airport does not have approved instrument approach 
procedures, as such, the Class E airspace is being revoked. If the 
airport develops instrument procedures, the FAA will reevaluate the 
airspace to ensure containment of the instrument procedures.
    Class D and Class E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, and 6005, 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 
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 JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations 
and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 
15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 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 revokes the Class E airspace 
extending

[[Page 55689]]

upward from 700 feet above the surface at Creech AFB Airport, Indian 
Springs, NV. This type of Class E airspace is designed to contain 
instrument approach procedures. This Class E airspace area is not 
required because there are no instrument procedures published for 
Creech AFB Airport.
    This action also implements two administrative updates to the Class 
D legal description. The second line of the text header is updated from 
``Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field, NV'' to ``Creech AFB 
Airport, NV'', to match the FAA database. Additionally, the third line 
of the text header is updated from ``(lat. 36[deg]35'14'' N, long. 
115[deg]40'24'' W)'' to ``(lat. 36[deg]35'11'' N, long. 115[deg]40'39'' 
W)'', to match the FAA database.
    FAA Order JO 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.
