Amendment of Class E Airspace; Boonville, MO

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: This action amends Class E airspace for Boonville, MO. 
Decommissioning of the Viertel non-directional beacon (NDB) at Jesse 
Viertel Memorial Airport, Boonville, MO, has made this action necessary 
to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) 
operations at the airport.

DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, January 13, 2011. 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.

    On July 27, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace for Boonville, 
MO, reconfiguring controlled airspace at Jesse Viertel Memorial Airport 
(75 FR 43887) Docket No. FAA-2010-0607. 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 7400.9U dated 
August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, 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 action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
Part 71 by amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface for the new standard instrument approach procedures 
at Jesse Viertel Memorial Airport, Boonville, MO. Decommissioning of 
the Viertel NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach at Jesse Viertel 
Memorial Airport has made it necessary to reconfigure the airspace for 
the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
    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. 
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 that 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, 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 at Jesse Viertel Memorial Airport, 
Boonville, MO.
