Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. E:\FR\FM\10DER1.SGM 10DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 235 / Friday, December 10, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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 at Caddo Mills Municipal Airport, Caddo Mills, TX, contained within the Greenville, TX, airspace legal description, and establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Terrell Municipal Airport, Terrell, TX, to support instrument flight rule operations at these airports. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 50862; September 13, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0740 to amend the Class E airspace at Greenville, TX, and establish Class E airspace at Terrell, TX.

The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71: Amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.4-mile (decreased from a 6.5-mile) radius of Caddo Mills Municipal Airport, Caddo Mills, TX, contained within the Greenville, TX, airspace legal description; removes the Caddo Mills VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:55 Dec 09, 2021 Jkt 256001 RBN and associated extension from the Greenville, TX, airspace legal description; removes Terrell Municipal Airport and the associate airspace from the Greenville, TX, airspace legal description as the airspace no longer adjoins and separate airspace is being established for Terrell, TX; removes the city associated with Majors Airport, Greenville, TX, to comply with updates to FAA Order 7400.2N, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; updates the geographic coordinates of the Caddo Mills Municipal Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; and removes the exclusionary language as it is no longer required; And establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius of Terrell Municipal Airport, Terrell, TX. These actions are the result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Caddo Mills NDB which provided guidance to instrument procedures at these airports. 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 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 5–6.5.a. 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.

[[Page 70369]]

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 at Caddo Mills Municipal Airport, Caddo 
Mills, TX, contained within the Greenville, TX, airspace legal 
description, and establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet above the surface at Terrell Municipal Airport, Terrell, TX, to 
support instrument flight rule operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 50862; September 13, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0740 
to amend the Class E airspace at Greenville, TX, and establish Class E 
airspace at Terrell, TX. 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 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

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71:
    Amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.4-mile (decreased from a 6.5-mile) radius of 
Caddo Mills Municipal Airport, Caddo Mills, TX, contained within the 
Greenville, TX, airspace legal description; removes the Caddo Mills RBN 
and associated extension from the Greenville, TX, airspace legal 
description; removes Terrell Municipal Airport and the associate 
airspace from the Greenville, TX, airspace legal description as the 
airspace no longer adjoins and separate airspace is being established 
for Terrell, TX; removes the city associated with Majors Airport, 
Greenville, TX, to comply with updates to FAA Order 7400.2N, Procedures 
for Handling Airspace Matters; updates the geographic coordinates of 
the Caddo Mills Municipal Airport to coincide with the FAA's

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 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 5-6.5.a. 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.
