This action establishes Class E Airspace at Poplarville, MS. to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) serving Poplarville-Pearl River County Airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. The FAA found that Class E airspace already exists for another airport in Poplarville, MS, and, therefore, is changing the title and airspace designation in this final rule to include the airport name. Also, a minor adjustment is made to the geographic coordinates of the airport.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Poplarville-Pearl River County 
Airport, MS

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This action establishes Class E Airspace at Poplarville, MS. 
to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System 
(GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) serving 
Poplarville-Pearl River County Airport. Controlled airspace is 
necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules 
(IFR) operations at the airport. The FAA found that Class E airspace 
already exists for another airport in Poplarville, MS, and, therefore, 
is changing the title and airspace designation in this final rule to 
include the airport name. Also, a minor adjustment is made to the 
geographic coordinates of the airport.

DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, December 10, 2015. The Director of the

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:

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 
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 establishes Class E airspace at Poplarville-Pearl River County 
Airport, Poplarville, MS.

History

    On June 22, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Poplarville-Pearl 
River County Airport, Poplarville, MS. (80 FR 35601). Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments 
were received. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found the airport 
designation Poplarville, MS, is already being used for another airport, 
and, therefore, has changed the title and designation to Poplarville-
Pearl River County Airport, Poplarville, MS. The geographic coordinates 
are also adjusted. Except for editorial changes, and the changes noted 
above, this rule is the same as published in the NPRM.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015, 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Z, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class 
A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 6.8-mile radius of Poplarville-Pearl River 
County Airport, Poplarville, MS, providing the controlled airspace 
required to support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach 
procedures for Poplarville-Pearl River County Airport. The title of 
this rule and the airspace designation is changed from Poplarville, MS, 
to Poplarville-Pearl River County Airport, MS, and the geographic 
coordinates of the airport are adjusted to be in concert with the FAAs 
aeronautical database.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

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, 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.

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.
