PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace at Burlington, VT to provide additional controlled airspace required to support standard instrument approach procedures at Burlington International Airport. The existing Class E surface area airspace and Class E airspace designated as an extension would be amended for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates for Burlington International Airport in all Class E airspace areas also would be adjusted to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6002, 6003, 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 E airspace designations listed in this document will 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. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. 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 efficient use of airspace. This proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would amend Class E airspace at E:\FR\FM\01JYP1.SGM 01JYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 127 / Friday, July 1, 2011 / Proposed Rules Burlington International Airport, Burlington, VT.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace at Burlington, 
VT to provide additional controlled airspace required to support 
standard instrument approach procedures at Burlington International 
Airport. The existing Class E surface area airspace and Class E 
airspace designated as an extension would be amended for the safety and 
management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates 
for Burlington International Airport in all Class E airspace areas also 
would be adjusted to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6002, 
6003, 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 E airspace designations listed in 
this document will 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);
