The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class D and E surface airspace at Manassas Municipal/Harry P. Davis Airport, Manassas, VA. Cancellation of the VOR approach into the airport has made this action necessary. Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace is no longer needed and therefore, would be removed. This action would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at Manassas Municipal/Harry P. Davis Airport. Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6002 and 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E 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 proposed 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. 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Jun 30, 2011 Jkt 223001 Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority.

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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class D and E surface airspace at 
Manassas Municipal/Harry P. Davis Airport, Manassas, VA. Cancellation 
of the VOR approach into the airport has made this action necessary. 
Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace is no 
longer needed and therefore, would be removed. This action would 
enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at Manassas 
Municipal/Harry P. Davis Airport.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 
5000, 6002 and 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U, dated August 
18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E 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);

will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it 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

    This proposed 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

of that authority as it proposes to remove Class E airspace and amend 
Class D and E airspace at Manassas, VA.
