Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hampton, GA, 11954-11955 [2022-04474]

Download as PDF 11954 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 42 / Thursday, March 3, 2022 / Rules and Regulations Bureau’s general plans to exercise its supervisory and enforcement discretion for institutions under its jurisdiction and does not impose any legal requirements on external parties, nor does it create or confer any substantive rights on external parties that could be enforceable in any administrative or civil proceeding. Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required in issuing the Bulletin, the Regulatory Flexibility Act also does not require an initial or final regulatory flexibility analysis. The Bureau has also determined that the issuance of the Bulletin does not impose any new or revise any existing recordkeeping, reporting, or disclosure requirements on covered entities or members of the public that would be collections of information requiring approval by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act. Rohit Chopra, Director, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. 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 Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to support IFR operations in Hampton, GA. This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Atlanta Speedway Airport (formerly Clayton County-Tara Field), Hampton, GA by updating the airport’s name and geographical coordinates to coincide with the FAA’s database. This action also increases the radius and removes excessive verbiage from the legal description of the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area. DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, May 19, 2022. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order JO 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR, 69181, December 7, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–1049 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Hampton, GA. 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.

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 amends 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Atlanta Speedway Airport (formerly Clayton County-Tara Field), Hampton, GA, by updating the airport’s name and updating the geographical coordinates to coincide with the FAA’s database. In addition, this action amends the radius to 9.2 miles (formerly 6.8 miles) and eliminates excessive verbiage in the legal description. 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. 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 E:\FR\FM\03MRR1.SGM 03MRR1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 42 / Thursday, March 3, 2022 / Rules and Regulations Order JO 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5a.

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.

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 Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface to support IFR operations in Hampton, GA.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR, 69181, December 7, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-1049 
to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface for Hampton, GA.
    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 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 routes, and reporting 
points.

The Rule

    The FAA amends 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Atlanta Speedway 
Airport (formerly Clayton County-Tara Field), Hampton, GA, by updating 
the airport's name and updating the geographical coordinates to 
coincide with the FAA's database. In addition, this action amends the 
radius to 9.2 miles (formerly 6.8 miles) and eliminates excessive 
verbiage in the legal description.
    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.
    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

[[Page 11955]]

Order JO 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.
