The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Astronaut Kent Rominger Airport, Del Norte, CO. Class E airspace would be established within a 7.3-mile radius of the Astronaut Kent Rominger Airport beginning at the 045° bearing from the airport clockwise to the 265° bearing from the airport, thence directly to the point of beginning.

efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that 
authority as it would establish Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above the surface at Astronaut Kent Rominger Airport, Del 
Norte, CO to support IFR operations in standard instrument approach and 
departure procedures at the airport.

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by 
Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Astronaut Kent Rominger 
Airport, Del Norte, CO. Class E airspace would be established within a 
7.3-mile radius of the Astronaut Kent Rominger Airport beginning at the 
045[deg] bearing from the airport clockwise to the 265[deg] bearing 
from the airport, thence directly to the point of beginning. This 
airspace is necessary to support IFR operations in standard instrument 
approach and departure procedures at the airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016, 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.

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, 
and 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal would be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
