Modification of Class D Airspace; Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord), WA, 67315-67317 [2021-25823]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 225 / Friday, November 26, 2021 / Rules and Regulations operations at 3B8. Eight comments supported the proposal as drafted, five requested the airspace currently excluded for S44 be continued and ten commenters requested the FAA provide an exclusion from the Class D 1.5 miles west of 3B8 and 3 miles north, up to 1300 feet. AOPA recommended 2 miles west and a straight out approach to the north. Three comments were duplicates or additional comments from the same person. The FAA does not concur that the airspace excluded for S44 is necessary for the safety of VFR aircraft on approach or departure at 3B8. 3B8 is located 5.2 nm from the approach end of TCM runway (AER) 34 and is 0.3 nm outside the Class D area. S44, which is now closed, was within the lateral boundaries of the Class D at 2.8 nm from TCM AER 34. Also, the traffic pattern for 3B8 restricts approaches to east of the runway, mitigating interaction with the turbojets at TCM. However, the FAA does concur the thermal updrafts located 0.4 nm and 0.7 nm northeast of 3B8 and the potential for wake turbulence from C–17 overflights do pose a risk to operations and are a consideration in the design of the airspace. Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 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 D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11F.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with RULES1 SUMMARY: Background The Entity List (supplement no. 4 to part 744 of the EAR) identifies entities for which there is reasonable cause to believe, based on specific and articulable facts, that the entities have been involved, are involved, or pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved in activities contrary to the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:31 Nov 24, 2021 Jkt 256001 national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. The EAR (15 CFR parts 730–774) impose additional license requirements on, and limit the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to listed entities. The license review policy for each listed entity is identified in the ‘‘License Review Policy’’ column on the Entity List, and the impact on the availability of license exceptions is described in the relevant Federal Register document adding entities to the Entity List. BIS places entities on the Entity List pursuant to part 744 (Control Policy: End-User and End-Use Based) and part 746 (Embargoes and Other Special Controls) of the EAR. The MEU List (supplement no. 7 to part 744 of the EAR) identifies entities that have been determined by the EndUser Review Committee (ERC) to be ‘military end users’ pursuant to § 744.21 of the EAR. That section imposes additional license requirements on, and limits the availability of most license exceptions for, exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to listed entities on the MEU List, as specified in supplement no. 7 to part 744 and in § 744.21 of the EAR. Entities are listed on the MEU List under the destinations of Burma, China, Russia, or Venezuela. The license review policy for each listed entity is identified in the introductory text of the MEU List (supplement no. 7 to part 744) and in § 744.21(e) of the EAR. The MEU List’s introductory text and § 744.21 of the EAR also specify the scope of the license requirements and limitations on the use of EAR license exceptions. The ERC, composed of representatives of the Departments of Commerce (Chair), State, Defense, Energy and, where appropriate, the Treasury, makes all decisions regarding additions to, removals from, or other modifications to the Entity List and the MEU List. The ERC makes all decisions to add an entry to the Entity List and MEU List by majority vote and all decisions to remove or modify an entry by unanimous vote. Entity List Decisions A. Additions to the Entity List Under § 744.11(b) (Criteria for revising the Entity List) of the EAR, entities for which there is reasonable cause to believe, based on specific and articulable facts, that the entities have been involved, are involved, or pose a significant risk of being or becoming involved in activities that are contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States, and those PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 67317 acting on behalf of such entities, may be added to the Entity List. Paragraphs (b)(1) through (5) of § 744.11 provide an illustrative list of activities that could be considered contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. This rule implements the decision of the ERC to add twenty-seven entities to the Entity List. These twenty-seven entities will be listed on the Entity List under the destinations of China, Japan, Pakistan, and Singapore. The ERC made the decision to add the twenty-seven entities identified below under the standard set forth in § 744.11(b) of the EAR. Specifically, the ERC decided to add three affiliates of Corad Technology Limited, an entity added to the Entity List under China (with a Hong Kong address) on August 14, 2019 (84 FR 40241), as follows: One affiliate in China (Corad Technology (Shenzhen) Ltd.); one affiliate in Singapore (Corad Technology Pte Ltd.); and one affiliate in Japan (Corad Technology Japan K.K.). These three affiliates of Corad Technology Limited have been involved in sales of technology from the United States and other Western nations to Iran’s military and space programs, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) front companies, and Chinese government and defense industry subordinate entities. BIS is also adding a reference under Taiwan to one of Corad Technology Limited’s offices, the Corad Taiwan Representative Office, which has also been involved in such technology sales. Identifying the office in this manner provides notice to the public that the office is subject to the Entity List licensing requirements that apply to Corad Technology Limited. BIS is also making a conforming change to the entry for Corad Technology Limited located in Hong Kong that directs the public to the two addresses for the Corad Taiwan Representative Office in Taiwan. The ERC decided to add the following five entities: Hangzhou Zhongke Microelectronics Co., Ltd., Hunan Goke Microelectronics, New H3C Semiconductor Technologies Co., Ltd., Xi’an Aerospace Huaxun Technology, and Yunchip Microelectronics, all located in China, for their support of the military modernization of the People’s Liberation Army. The ERC decided to add three entities in China (Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale, QuantumCTek Co., and Shanghai QuantumCTeck Co., Ltd.) to the Entity List for acquiring and attempting to acquire U.S.-origin items in support of military applications.

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 will modify the Class D airspace to support IFR operations at 
Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord), Fort Lewis/Tacoma, WA.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (85 FR 71290; November 9, 2020) for Docket No. FAA-2020-0899 
to modify the Class D airspace at Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord), 
Fort Lewis/Tacoma, WA. 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 D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 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 
D airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11.

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

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the lateral 
dimensions of the Class D airspace. The Class D airspace lateral 
boundary will be established within a 4-mile radius of the airport 
instead of a 4.3-mile radius. The additional airspace is no longer 
needed.
    In addition, the name and city of the airport and the geographical 
coordinates for Gray AAF (Joint Base Lewis-McChord) will be updated to 
match the FAA's National Airspace System Resource (NASR) 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.
