Federal Aviation Administration

14 CFR Part 71

[Docket No. FAA-2013-0073; Airspace Docket No. 13-ASO-2]


Amendment of Class E Airspace; Dayton, TN, Establishment of Class 
E Airspace; Cleveland, TN, and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Bradley 
Memorial Hospital, Cleveland, TN

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This action amends Class E Airspace at Dayton, TN, as the 
Hardwick Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned and new 
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) have been developed at 
Mark Anton Airport. Also, Hardwick Field Airport has closed; therefore, 
the controlled airspace area is removed. This action also establishes 
Class E Airspace at Cleveland Regional Jetport, Cleveland, TN, to 
accommodate area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) 
SIAPs at the airport. Information regarding Bradley Memorial Hospital 
is added to the Cleveland, TN, airspace description and removed from 
both the Dayton, TN, regulatory text as well as its listing as Bradley 
Memorial Hospital, Cleveland, TN, to correct an erroneous reference.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, October 17, 2013. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
title 1, Code of Federal Regulations, part 51, subject to the annual 
revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On May 1, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 
of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace at Mark Anton 
Airport, Dayton, TN, establish Class E airspace at Cleveland Regional 
Jetport, Cleveland, TN, and remove designation of Class E airspace at 
Bradley Memorial Hospital, Cleveland, TN, (78 FR 25403). 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 E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 
2012, 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.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 9.8-mile radius of Mark Anton Airport, Dayton, TN, 
to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures due to the 
decommissioning of the Hardwick NDB and cancellation of the NDB 
approach. Additionally, this action establishes Class E airspace 700 
feet above the surface within a 7.4 mile radius at Cleveland Regional 
Jetport, with a segment extending from the 7.4-mile radius to 12-miles 
southwest of the Jetport, to accommodate RNAV (GPS) standard instrument 
approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations. Also, 
Hardwick Field Airport has closed, and controlled airspace removed. 
Information regarding Bradley Memorial Hospital is added to the 
Cleveland, TN, airspace description and removed from the Dayton, TN, 
regulatory text as well as its listing as Bradley Memorial Hospital, 
Cleveland, TN, to correct an erroneous reference. This action enhances 
the safety and airspace management of IFR operations in the Dayton, TN, 
and Cleveland, TN, airspace areas.
    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 controlled airspace in the Dayton, and Cleveland, TN, 
airspace areas.

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.
