Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Columbia, MO, 51243-51245 [2022-17937]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 161 / Monday, August 22, 2022 / Rules and Regulations 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 airspace action of amending RNAV route T–227 in the vicinity of Fairbanks, AK qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5– 6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points), and paragraph 5–6.5i, which categorically excludes from further environmental review the establishment of new or revised air traffic control procedures conducted at 3,000 feet or more above ground level (AGL); procedures conducted below 3,000 feet AGL that do not cause traffic to be routinely routed over noise sensitive areas; modifications to currently approved procedures conducted below 3,000 feet AGL that do not significantly increase noise over noise sensitive areas; and increases in minimum altitudes and landing minima. As such, this action is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. Accordingly, the FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

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 D airspace, the Class E surface airspace, and 
the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
and establishes Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D 
and Class E surface airspace at Columbia Regional Airport, Columbia, 
MO, to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (87 FR 33660; June 3, 2022) for Docket No. FAA-2022-0694 to 
amend the Class D and Class E airspace and establish Class E airspace 
at Columbia, MO. 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 and E 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 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 the publication, the FAA discovered a typographical 
error in the geographic coordinates of the Columbia VOR/DME. ``lat. 
38[deg]48'29'' N'' should be ``lat. 38[deg]48'39'' N.'' That error has 
been corrected in this action.

The Rule

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71:
    Amends the Class D airspace at Columbia Regional Airport, Columbia, 
MO, by updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database; and replaces the outdated terms 
``Notice to Airmen'' with ``Notice to Air Missions'' and ``Airport/
Facility Directory'' with ``Chart Supplement'';
    Amends the Class E surface airspace at Columbia Regional Airport by 
updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database; and adds missing part-time language to the 
airspace legal description;
    Establishes Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D 
and Class E surface airspace at Columbia Regional Airport within 2.4 
miles each side of the Columbia VOR/DME 019[deg] radial extending from 
the 4.3-mile radius of the Columbia Regional Airport to 7 mile north of 
the Columbia VOR/DME; and within 2 miles each side of the 315[deg] 
bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the 
airport to 9.7 miles northwest of the airport;
    And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet at 
Columbia Regional Airport by removing the Columbia Regional Airport ILS 
Localizer and the associated extensions from the airspace legal 
description as they are no longer needed; adds an extension 2.4 miles 
each side of the Columbia VOR/DME 019[deg] radial extending from the 
6.8-mile radius of the airport to 7 miles north of the Columbia VOR/
DME; adds an extension 2 miles each side of the 315[deg] bearing from 
the airport extending from the 6.8-mile radius of the airport to 10.7 
miles northwest of the airport; adds an extension 2 miles each side of 
the Columbia VOR/DME 333[deg] radial extending from the 6.8-mile radius 
of the airport to 11.1 miles northwest of the airport; and updates the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    This action is necessary due to a biennial airspace review.
    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.
