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 the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in Mooresville, NC, to support IFR operations in the area.

SUMMARY: This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet above the surface for Lake Norman Airpark, Mooresville, NC, by 
removing Lowe's Mooresville Heliport from the description as the 
heliport has closed, and airspace is no longer required. This action 
enhances the safety and management of controlled airspace within the 
national airspace system. Also, during the airspace review, the FAA 
determined a radius increase was required at Lake Norman Airpark. In 
addition, the FAA is removing unnecessary verbiage that references 
Class E airspace in Statesville, NC and Concord, NC. Controlled 
airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument 
flight rules (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 the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface in Mooresville, NC, to support IFR operations in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 41412, August 2, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0537 to 
amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface

[[Page 58796]]

at Lake Norman Airpark, Mooresville, NC.
    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 Paragraph 6005 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.

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 routes, and reporting 
points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lake Norman 
Airpark, Mooresville, NC, by removing Lowe's Mooresville Heliport from 
the description, as the heliport has closed, and airspace is no longer 
required. Also, the radius of the Lake Norman Airpark is increased to 
9.3 miles (previously 6.3 Miles). In addition, the FAA is removing the 
unnecessary verbiage in the description referencing Class E airspace in 
Statesville, NC, and Concord, NC.
    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. 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.

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.
