The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D surface area, and airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Fort Huachuca, AZ. This action was initiated by the FAA’s biennial review of the airspace, in which they found additional controlled airspace necessary for the safety and management of aircraft departing and arriving under IFR operations at Fort Huachuca, Sierra Vista Municipal Airport-Libby Army Airfield. This action would also update the geographic coordinates and the airport name from Fort Huachuca, Libby AAF/Sierra Vista Municipal Airport, to Fort Huachuca, Sierra Vista Municipal Airport-Libby Army Airfield. Class D airspace and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, 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 D airspace and Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified this proposed rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a E:\FR\FM\20MYP1.SGM 20MYP1 29180 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 98 / Friday, May 20, 2011 / Proposed Rules substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class D airspace, and Class E 
airspace designated as an extension to Class D surface area, and 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Fort 
Huachuca, AZ. This action was initiated by the FAA's biennial review of 
the airspace, in which they found additional controlled airspace 
necessary for the safety and management of aircraft departing and 
arriving under IFR operations at Fort Huachuca, Sierra Vista Municipal 
Airport-Libby Army Airfield. This action would also update the 
geographic coordinates and the airport name from Fort Huachuca, Libby 
AAF/Sierra Vista Municipal Airport, to Fort Huachuca, Sierra Vista 
Municipal Airport-Libby Army Airfield.
    Class D airspace and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, 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 D airspace and 
Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined 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
