Establishment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Camp Guernsey, WY

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action establishes Class D airspace and Class E airspace 
at Camp Guernsey, WY. The establishment of an air traffic control tower 
has made this action necessary for the safety and management of 
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Camp Guernsey Airport.

DATES: Effective date, 0901 UTC, March 7, 2013. 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 7400.9 and 
publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On September 12, 2012, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish controlled airspace 
at Camp Guernsey Airport, Camp Guernsey, WY (77 FR 56174). 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 airspace and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000 and 6002, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9W dated 
August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated 
by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class D airspace and Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in that Order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by establishing Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending 
upward from the surface, at Camp Guernsey Airport, Camp Guernsey, WY, 
to accommodate the newly established air traffic control tower. 
Controlled airspace is established within a 5-mile radius of the 
airport, with a segment extending from the 5-mile radius to 6.5 miles 
north of the airport to provide the necessary airspace for IFR 
operations at Camp Guernsey Airport, Camp Guernsey, WY.
    The FAA has determined this regulation only involves an established 
body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments 
are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this 
regulation: (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 this rule, when promulgated, will 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 U.S. 
Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106 discusses 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

[[Page 2880]]

safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation 
is within the scope of that authority as it establishes controlled 
airspace at Camp Guernsey Airport, Camp Guernsey, WY.
    Except for some editorial changes better explaining the airspace, 
this rule is the same as published in the NPRM.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a. 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.
