SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11955 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 would modify Class D and Class E airspace to support IFR operations at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, North Bend, OR. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register (86 FR 59672; October 28, 2021) for FAA–2021–0816 to modify the Class D and Class E surface airspace, establish an area that is designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, modify the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, remove navigational aids (NAVAID) from the legal description of the Class E2 and Class E5 text headers, update the Class D, Class E2, and Class E5 airspace legal descriptions, and establish Class E4 airspace at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, North Bend, OR. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication of the NPRM in the Federal Register (86 FR 59672; October 28, 2021) for FAA– 2021–0816, the FAA identified a discrepancy with the assigned Airspace Docket Number. In the NPRM, the Airspace Docket Number is listed as 21– AWP–27, which is incorrect. Oregon is assigned to the FAA’s Northwest Mountain Region. The correct Airspace Docket Number is 21–ANM–27. Additionally, the FAA’s definition of the acronym ‘‘NOTAM’’ changed from ‘‘Notice to Airmen’’ to ‘‘Notice to Air Missions’’ and the legal description in the NPRM is not correct. The phrase ‘‘Notice to Air Missions’’ is now used in the legal descriptions for the Class D and Class E2 surface areas at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport to reflect this change.

The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES 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 Class D airspace at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, North Bend, OR. To properly contain departing IFR aircraft flying toward or over rising terrain, the Class D will be extended to the east and southeast of the airport. This action also modifies the Class E airspace designated as a surface area. The Class E surface area legal description will be coincident with the Class D legal description to properly contain departing IFR aircraft flying toward or over rising terrain. Next, this action modifies the Class E airspace by establishing an area that is designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area to properly contain IFR arrivals; therefore, an extension east and another southwest of the airport will be established. The extensions are designed to contain arriving IFR aircraft when descending below 1,000 feet above the surface on the ILS or LOC Runway 5 and the VOR– B procedures. This action also modifies the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. This airspace is designed to contain departing IFR aircraft until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface and arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. The Class E radius will be modified, and extensions to the northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, and west of the airport will be established to contain IFR departures. Additionally, this action removes the North Bend VORTAC and Emire LOM/ VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:19 Mar 02, 2022 Jkt 256001 NDB from the Class E2 text header and airspace description. The NAVAIDs are not required to describe the airspace area, and their removal simplifies the airspace’s legal description. This action also removes the North Bend VORTAC from the Class E5 text header and airspace description, and replaces it with the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport’s Airport Reference Point coordinates. The NAVAID is not required to describe the airspace area, and its removal simplifies the airspace’s legal description. Lastly, this action makes an administrative update to replace the term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ in the last line of the Class D and Class E2 airspace descriptions with the term ‘‘Chart Supplement.’’ 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.

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 would modify Class D and Class E airspace to support IFR 
operations at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, North Bend, OR.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register (86 FR 59672; October 28, 2021) for FAA-2021-0816 to 
modify the Class D and Class E surface airspace, establish an area that 
is designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, 
modify the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface, remove navigational aids (NAVAID) from the legal description 
of the Class E2 and Class E5 text headers, update the Class D, Class 
E2, and Class E5 airspace legal descriptions, and establish Class E4 
airspace at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, North Bend, OR. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    Subsequent to publication of the NPRM in the Federal Register (86 
FR 59672; October 28, 2021) for FAA-2021-0816, the FAA identified a 
discrepancy with the assigned Airspace Docket Number. In the NPRM, the 
Airspace Docket Number is listed as 21-AWP-27, which is incorrect. 
Oregon is assigned to the FAA's Northwest Mountain Region. The correct 
Airspace Docket Number is 21-ANM-27. Additionally, the FAA's definition 
of the acronym ``NOTAM'' changed from ``Notice to Airmen'' to ``Notice 
to Air Missions'' and the legal description in the NPRM is not correct. 
The phrase ``Notice to Air Missions'' is now used in the legal 
descriptions for the Class D and Class E2 surface areas at Southwest 
Oregon Regional Airport to reflect this change.

[[Page 11956]]

    Class D, Class E2, Class E4, and Class E5 airspace designations are 
published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004, 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 
D and 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

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the Class D 
airspace at Southwest Oregon Regional Airport, North Bend, OR. To 
properly contain departing IFR aircraft flying toward or over rising 
terrain, the Class D will be extended to the east and southeast of the 
airport.
    This action also modifies the Class E airspace designated as a 
surface area. The Class E surface area legal description will be 
coincident with the Class D legal description to properly contain 
departing IFR aircraft flying toward or over rising terrain.
    Next, this action modifies the Class E airspace by establishing an 
area that is designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface 
area to properly contain IFR arrivals; therefore, an extension east and 
another southwest of the airport will be established. The extensions 
are designed to contain arriving IFR aircraft when descending below 
1,000 feet above the surface on the ILS or LOC Runway 5 and the VOR-B 
procedures.
    This action also modifies the Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface. This airspace is designed to contain 
departing IFR aircraft until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface and 
arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. 
The Class E radius will be modified, and extensions to the northeast, 
east, southeast, south, southwest, and west of the airport will be 
established to contain IFR departures.
    Additionally, this action removes the North Bend VORTAC and Emire 
LOM/NDB from the Class E2 text header and airspace description. The 
NAVAIDs are not required to describe the airspace area, and their 
removal simplifies the airspace's legal description.
    This action also removes the North Bend VORTAC from the Class E5 
text header and airspace description, and replaces it with the 
Southwest Oregon Regional Airport's Airport Reference Point 
coordinates. The NAVAID is not required to describe the airspace area, 
and its removal simplifies the airspace's legal description.
    Lastly, this action makes an administrative update to replace the 
term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' in the last line of the Class D and

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.
