Amendment of Class E Airspace; Raleigh, NC, 51239-51241 [2022-18015]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 161 / Monday, August 22, 2022 / Rules and Regulations 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 became 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 is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace, by increasing the radius to 4.4 miles (previously 4.0 miles), and amending the surface extensions. Also, this action removes Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area for Hudson Valley Regional Airport, Poughkeepsie, NY, as the extensions are included in the Class D description. This action updates the airport’s name to Hudson Valley Regional Airport (formerly Dutchess County Airport), and removes Kingston VORTAC from the Class E surface airspace description, as well as replaces the term Airport/ Facility Directory with Chart Supplement in the descriptions. In addition, the city name is removed from the airport header, as per FAA Order 7400.2. This action enhances the safety and management of controlled airspace within the national airspace system. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002, and 6004, 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. FAA Order JO 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with RULES 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:06 Aug 19, 2022 Jkt 256001 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 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 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 Class E airspace for Raleigh-Durham International Airport, 
Raleigh, NC, to support IFR operations in the area.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (87 FR 29238, May 13, 2022) for Docket No. FAA-2022-0525 to 
amend Class E airspace for Raleigh-Durham International Airport, 
Raleigh, NC.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One 
comment was received advising the FAA that a group is researching the 
possible reopening of the now closed Horace Williams Airport. The FAA 
will remove the Class E airspace surrounding this airport, and 
establish modified airspace when/if the airport does reopen.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 6003 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 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 routes, and reporting 
points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by amending Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Raleigh-Durham 
International Airport, Raleigh, NC, due to the decommissioning of the 
Leevy NDB and cancellation of associated approaches. This action 
eliminates the northeast extension. Also, Class E airspace designated 
as an extension to a Class C surface area is amended by updating the 
airport's geographic coordinates and updating the name of the Raleigh/
Durham VORTAC, (formerly Raleigh VORTAC). This action also removes the 
airspace surrounding Horace Williams Airport, as the airport has 
closed.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 6003 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 E airspace designations listed in this document 
will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11.
    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 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 preparation of an environmental assessment.
