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 the Class D and Class E airspace at Camarillo Airport, Camarillo, CA, to support VFR and IFR operations at the airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register for FAA–2021–0244 (87 FR 34595; June 7, 2022) to modify the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, establish Class E airspace beginning at 700 feet above the surface, remove the Camarillo VOR/DME from PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 51867 the airspace’s legal description, and make administrative changes to the Class D and Class E legal descriptions at Camarillo Airport, Camarillo, CA. 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, Class E4, and Class E5 airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 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.

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 E airspace, designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. This airspace area is east of the airport and is reduced to properly contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the surface. This action also removes the Camarillo VOR/DME navigational aid (NAVAID) from the airspace’s legal description. The NAVAID is not required to define the airspace and removal of the NAVAID simplifies the airspace’s description. Additionally, this action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. This airspace is designed to contain arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the surface and departing IFR aircraft until they reach 1,200 feet above the surface. Lastly, this action also makes several administrative modifications to the Class D and Class E airspace’s legal descriptions. To match the FAA database, the geographic coordinates in the third line of the Class E4 airspace’s text header are modified to read lat. ‘‘34°12′50″ N, long. 119°05′40″ W.’’ Also, since Camarillo Airport’s Class D airspace abuts the Class D areas for Point Mugu Naval Air Station and Oxnard Airports, the geographic coordinates at Camarillo Airport’s Class E:\FR\FM\24AUR1.SGM 24AUR1 51868 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 163 / Wednesday, August 24, 2022 / Rules and Regulations D are updated to more accurately define the common borders of the Class D areas, which do not represent a change to the current boundaries.

The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11. FAA Order JO 7400.11 is published annually and becomes 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. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with RULES 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.

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 the Class D and Class E airspace at Camarillo 
Airport, Camarillo, CA, to support VFR and IFR operations at the 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the 
Federal Register for FAA-2021-0244 (87 FR 34595; June 7, 2022) to 
modify the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or 
Class E surface area, establish Class E airspace beginning at 700 feet 
above the surface, remove the Camarillo VOR/DME from the airspace's 
legal description, and make administrative changes to the Class D and 
Class E legal descriptions at Camarillo Airport, Camarillo, CA. 
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, Class E4, and Class E5 airspace 
designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 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 E 
airspace, designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface 
area. This airspace area is east of the airport and is reduced to 
properly contain IFR aircraft descending below 1,000 feet above the 
surface. This action also removes the Camarillo VOR/DME navigational 
aid (NAVAID) from the airspace's legal description. The NAVAID is not 
required to define the airspace and removal of the NAVAID simplifies 
the airspace's description.
    Additionally, this action establishes Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface. This airspace is designed to 
contain arriving IFR aircraft descending below 1,500 feet above the 
surface and departing IFR aircraft until they reach 1,200 feet above 
the surface. Lastly, this action also makes several administrative 
modifications to the Class D and Class E airspace's legal descriptions. 
To match the FAA database, the geographic coordinates in the third line 
of the Class E4 airspace's text header are modified to read lat. 
``34[deg]12'50'' N, long. 119[deg]05'40'' W.'' Also, since Camarillo 
Airport's Class D airspace abuts the Class D areas for Point Mugu Naval 
Air Station and Oxnard Airports, the geographic coordinates at 
Camarillo Airport's Class

D are updated to more accurately define the common borders of the Class 
D areas, which do not represent a change to the current boundaries. The 
Class D and Class E4 legal descriptions are updated to read ``Notice to 
Air Missions'' in place of ``Notice to Airmen,'' to match the FAA's 
current definition of the acronym ``NOTAM.'' Finally, the term 
``Airport/Facility Directory'' in the last sentence of the Class D and 
Class E4 airspace descriptions is updated to read ``Chart Supplement.''
    Class D, E4, and E5 airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 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. FAA Order JO 7400.11 is published 
annually and becomes 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.
