Final rule, technical amendment.

On June 18, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a final rule amending Class E airspace at Moton Field Municipal Airport, Tuskegee, AL (78 FR 36411). The airspace designation title incorrectly listed the state as TN, instead of AL, and therefore was listed incorrectly FAA Order 7400.9X. By listing the amendment under TN, it then left the Class E airspace for Tuskegee, AL, unchanged in the Order. This action makes the corrections.
Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, 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.
This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 removes the Class E airspace designation and description for Tuskegee Municipal Airport, Tuskegee, AL. This action also corrects the Class E airspace designation title for Moton Field Municipal Airport, Tuskegee, AL, from ASO TN E5, Tuskegee, AL, to ASO AL E5, Tuskegee, AL. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary.
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.
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 airspace at Tuskegee Municipal Airport, Tuskegee, AL.
