Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

This action amends the following Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L. The FAA found an error with the Offshore Airspace Legal Descriptions containing airspace descriptions not related to the need to apply IFR en route Air Traffic Control services in international airspace. This action corrects that error by removing terminal airspace, airspace associated with geographic coordinates, and airspace associated with NAVAIDs from the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions.

DATES:

Effective date 0901 UTC, June 17, 2021. 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 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

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 the 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 correct the Offshore Airspace legal descriptions as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace System.

History

The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA-2020-0823 in the Federal Register (85 FR 59220; September 21, 2020) reversing the final rule for Docket No. FAA-2006-25852 in the Federal Register (72 FR 31714; June 8, 2007; as corrected 72 FR 37430, July 10, 2007) that amended the offshore airspace areas, including: Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska, to include terminal airspace previously thought to be excluded in the Code of Federal Regulations. The exclusionary language was misinterpreted including all airspace West of Longitude 160°. The FAA found this interpretation to be in error, as the exclusion only pertains to the area West of Longitude 160° for the Alaskan Peninsula. The Alaskan Peninsula does not include the Aleutian Islands, nor preclude the establishment of airspace under CFR 71.71(c). Additionally, this final rule corrects the final rule for Docket No. FAA-2006-26164 in the Federal Register (72 FR 5611; February 7, 2007) that revoked Class E Airspace for Adak, ATKA, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK as it was thought that because these locations were within Control 1234L, they should be contained in the offshore airspace description. This was in error, as offshore airspace cannot be established within 12 nautical miles (NM) of a coastline of the United States (U.S.). This action corrects these errors. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the Start Printed Page 18891proposal. No significant comments were received.

Offshore Airspace Areas are published in 6007, and Class E Airspace Areas Designated as Surface Areas, and Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth, are published in paragraph 6002 and 6005, of FAA Order 7400.11E dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Offshore Airspace Areas, Class E Airspace Areas Designated as Surface Areas, and Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order.

Differences From the NPRM

In the NPRM published in the Federal Register (85 FR 59220; September 21, 2020) proposal and amendment sections, the FAA proposed a technical amendment to 33 terminal facilities, five navigational aids (NAVAIDS), and three sets of geographic coordinate assigned airspace in the Offshore Airspace areas legal descriptions contained in FAA Order 7400.11 Section 6007, 6002, and 6005. After further review, the FAA identified that 10 facilities (Chevak, AK; Chignik, AK; King Salmon, AK; Kodiak, AK; Manokotak, AK; Nome, AK; Perryville, AK; Shaktoolik, AK; St. Michael, AK; and Tooksook Bay, AK) and five navigation aids (Biorka Island, AK; Glacier River, AK; Middleton Island, AK; Nome, AK; and Kotzebue, AK) contained language in the legal description excluding airspace beyond 12 NM from the coastline. The FAA determined that Air Traffic Facilities are using Terminal Arrival Areas (TAA) for most of the approaches associated with these locations. These TAAs cover 30 NM from an established waypoint and extend into offshore airspace beyond 12 NM from the coastline. If the exclusionary language were allowed to take effect, these areas would be without controlled airspace. In addition, some of these locations are further constrained because the airspace beyond 12 NM provides airspace for Missed Approach holding and vectoring of aircraft from an airway to the Initial Approach Fix and the terminal environment. The FAA determined that these locations should be retained in the associated Offshore Airspace Areas to provide the airspace needed for these operations until an airspace review can be conducted and these procedures safely be brought into compliance, while maintaining the required controlled airspace. This rule corrects this error in the Rule section.

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 Department of Transportation (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 airspace action of amending legal descriptions for certain Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska to separate Terminal Airspace Areas from Norton Sound Low, Woody Island Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas; Alaska 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). 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. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.
