SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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. 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 at Stan Stamper Municipal Airport, Hugo, OK, to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport. 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 (increased from a 6.3-mile) radius of Stan Stamper Municipal Airport, Hugo, OK; removes the Hugo NDB and associated extension from the airspace legal description; updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; and removes the exclusionary language as it is not required. This action is the result of an airspace review due to the decommissioning of the Hugo NDB which provided guidance to instrument procedures at this airport. FAA Order JO 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 62758; November 12, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0977 to amend the Class E airspace at Hugo, OK. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Differences From the NPRM Subsequent to publication a typographic error was discovered in the geographic coordinates published in the airspace legal description, ‘‘(lat. 34°02′06″ N, long. 95°32′31″ W)’’ vice ‘‘(lat. 34°02′01″ N, long. 95°32′31″ W)’’. That error has been corrected in this action. 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 E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 24 / Friday, February 4, 2022 / Rules and Regulations 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.

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 at Stan Stamper Municipal Airport, Hugo, OK, to support 
instrument flight rule operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 62758; November 12, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0977 
to amend the Class E airspace at Hugo, OK. 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.

Differences From the NPRM

    Subsequent to publication a typographic error was discovered in the 
geographic coordinates published in the airspace legal description, 
``(lat. 34[deg]02'06'' N, long. 95[deg]32'31'' W)'' vice ``(lat. 
34[deg]02'01'' N, long. 95[deg]32'31'' W)''. That error has been 
corrected in this action.

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 
(increased from a 6.3-mile) radius of Stan Stamper Municipal Airport, 
Hugo, OK; removes the Hugo NDB and associated extension from the 
airspace legal description; updates the geographic coordinates of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; and removes 
the exclusionary language as it is not required.
    This action is the result of an airspace review due to the 
decommissioning of the Hugo NDB which provided guidance to instrument 
procedures at this airport.
    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

[[Page 6413]]

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.
