ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice proposes to amend the Class E airspace area in the Binghampton, NY area. The development of multiple area navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) for numerous airports within the Binghampton, NY area with approved Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations and the resulting overlap of designated Class E–5 airspace have made this proposal necessary. The proposal would correct the name of the airport and update the Airport Reference Point (ARP). The proposal would consolidate the Class E–5 airspace designations for six airports in the Binghampton area and result in the rescission of five separate Class E–5 descriptions through separate rulemaking action. The area would be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. DATES: Comments must be received on or before September 22, 2005.

The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to amend the Class E airspace within the Binghamton, NY area. The proposal would consolidate the following airport Class E–5 airspace designations into the Binghamton, NY designation: Cortland, NY, Cortland County-Chase Field VerDate jul<14>2003 16:15 Aug 22, 2005 Jkt 205001 Airport (N03); Ithaca, NY, Tompkins County Airport (ITH); Elmira, NY, Elmira/Corning Regional Airport (ELM); Endicott, NY, Tri-Cities Airport (CZG); and Sayre, PA, Robert Parker Hospital Heliport. This action would result in the rescission of five Class E–5 designations under a separate docket. The affected airspace would subsequently be incorporated into the Binghamton, NY description. The airspace will be defined to accommodate the approaches and contain IFR operations to and from those airports. This change would have no impact on aircraft operations since the type of airspace designation is not changing. Furthermore, the IFR approach procedures for the individual airports within the are would not be affected. Class E airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from 700 ft. or more above the surface are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9M, dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed 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 would only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to amend the Class E airspace 
within the Binghamton, NY area. The proposal would consolidate the 
following airport Class E-5 airspace designations into the Binghamton, 
NY designation: Cortland, NY, Cortland County-Chase Field Airport 
(N03); Ithaca, NY, Tompkins County Airport (ITH); Elmira, NY, Elmira/
Corning Regional Airport (ELM); Endicott, NY, Tri-Cities Airport (CZG); 
and Sayre, PA, Robert Parker Hospital Heliport. This action would 
result in the rescission of five Class E-5 designations under a 
separate docket. The affected airspace would subsequently be 
incorporated into the Binghamton, NY description. The airspace will be 
defined to accommodate the approaches and contain IFR operations to and 
from those airports. This change would have no impact on aircraft 
operations since the type of airspace designation is not changing. 
Furthermore, the IFR approach procedures for the individual airports 
within the are would not be affected. Class E airspace designations for 
airspace areas extending upward from 700 ft. or more above the surface 
are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9M, dated August 30, 
2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in 
this document would be published subsequently in the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed 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 would only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not 
have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
