Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 142 / Monday, July 25, 2011 / Proposed Rules srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, to request a copy of 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 (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to support new standard instrument approach procedures developed at Cleveland Municipal Airport, Cleveland, MS. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Renova NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach, and for continued safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 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 designation 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:57 Jul 22, 2011 Jkt 223001 airspace. This proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would amend Class E airspace at Cleveland Municipal Airport, Cleveland, MS.

The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR Part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

Rulemaking distribution System, which describes the application 

procedure.



The Proposal



    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 

Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish Class E airspace at 

Gordonsville, VA, providing the controlled airspace required to support 

the new RNAV GPS standard instrument approach procedures for 

Gordonsville Municipal Airport. Controlled airspace extending upward 

from 700 feet above the surface would be established for the safety and 

management of IFR operations at the airport.

    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 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 designation 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 establish Class E airspace at 

Gordonsville Municipal Airport, Gordonsville, VA.
