ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish Class D, E2 and E4 airspace and revise E5 airspace at Easton, MD. A federal contract tower with a weather reporting system is being constructed at Easton Airport/Newnam Field. Therefore, the airport will meet criteria for Class D, E2, and E4 surface area airspace. Class D surface area airspace and Class E4 airspace designed as an extension to Class D airspace is required when the control tower is open to contain Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and other Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Class E2 surface area airspace is required when the control tower is closed to contain SIAPs and other IFR operations at the airport. This action would establish Class D and E2 airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 2,600 feet MSL within a 4-mile radius of the airport and Class E4 airspace extension that is 5.4 miles wide and extends 7.4 miles northeast of the Easton Non Directional Beacon (NDB). Additionally, a technical revision to Class E5 airspace is required as a result of a name change from the Easton Municipal Airport to Easton Airport/Newnam Field, which was effective May 25, 1993. DATES: Comments must be received on or before October 22, 2007. ADDRESSES: Send comments on this proposal to the Docket Management System, U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M– 30, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., West Building, Ground Floor, Room W12– 140, Washington, DC 20590; Telephone: 1–800–647–5527.

The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 to establish Class D, E2, and E4 airspace and revise Class E5 airspace at Easton, MD. Class D and E2 Airspace Designations for Airspace Areas extending upward from the surface of the Earth, Class E4 Airspace Areas Designated as an Extension to a Class D Surface Area and Class E5 Airspace Areas extending upward from 700 feet ore more above the surface of the Earth are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005 respectively of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 The Class D, E2, E4 and E5 airspace designations 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. 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, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Proposed Establishment of Class D and E Airspace, Proposed 
Revision of Class E Airspace; Easton, MD

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish Class D, E2 and E4 airspace 
and revise E5 airspace at Easton, MD. A federal contract tower with a 
weather reporting system is being constructed at Easton Airport/Newnam 
Field. Therefore, the airport will meet criteria for Class D, E2, and 
E4 surface area airspace. Class D surface area airspace and Class E4 
airspace designed as an extension to Class D airspace is required when 
the control tower is open to contain Standard Instrument Approach 
Procedures (SIAPs) and other Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations 
at the airport. Class E2 surface area airspace is required when the 
control tower is closed to contain SIAPs and other IFR operations at 
the airport. This action would establish Class D and E2 airspace 
extending upward from the surface to and including 2,600 feet MSL 
within a 4-mile radius of the airport and Class E4 airspace extension 
that is 5.4 miles wide and extends 7.4 miles northeast of the Easton 
Non Directional Beacon (NDB). Additionally, a technical revision to 
Class E5 airspace is required as a result of a name change from the 
Easton Municipal Airport to Easton Airport/Newnam Field, which was 
effective May 25, 1993.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before October 22, 2007.

Advisory Circular No. 11-2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution 
System, which describes the application procedure.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations, part 71 to establish Class D, E2, and E4 airspace and 
revise Class E5 airspace at Easton, MD. Class D and E2 Airspace 
Designations for Airspace Areas extending upward from the surface of 
the Earth, Class E4 Airspace Areas Designated as an Extension to a 
Class D Surface Area and Class E5 Airspace Areas extending upward from 
700 feet ore more above the surface of the Earth are published in 
Paragraphs 5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005 respectively of FAA Order 7400.9P, 
dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 2006, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 The Class D, E2, E4 and E5 
airspace designations 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. 
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, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
