Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, for a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Nashville International Airport Class C airspace area by removing a cutout from the Class C surface area that excluded the airspace within a 1.5 NM radius of the former Cornelia Fort Airpark from the Class C surface area. The exclusion was in place to solely accommodate operations at the Airpark, which was located about 4 NM north northwest of Nashville International Airport. The Airpark is now permanently closed and the property sold for non-aviation uses. Since the original purpose of the exclusion no longer exists, the FAA is proposing to remove the words ‘‘ * * * excluding that airspace within a 1.5mile radius of lat. 36°12′00″ N., long. 86°42′10″ W. (in the vicinity of Cornelia Fort Airpark) * * * ’’ from the Class C airspace description. This would restore the Class C surface area to the standard configuration of a 5 NM radius around Nashville International Airport and would enhance the management of aircraft operations at the airport. Also, a minor correction would be made to update the geographic coordinates of the Nashville International Airport to reflect the current information in the FAA’s aeronautical database. This change would remove ‘‘lat. 36°07′31″ N., long. 86°40′35″ W.,’’ and insert ‘‘lat. 36°07′28″ N., long. 86°40′42″ W.’’ in its place. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Jan 29, 2013 Jkt 229001 Class C airspace areas are published in paragraph 4000 of FAA Order 7400.9W, dated August 8, 2012 and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class C airspace area modification proposed 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. Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (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, will 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 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 the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would modify terminal airspace as required to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic in the Nashville, TN, area.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Nashville International 
Airport Class C airspace area by removing a cutout from the Class C 
surface area that excluded the airspace within a 1.5 NM radius of the 
former Cornelia Fort Airpark from the Class C surface area. The 
exclusion was in place to solely accommodate operations at the Airpark, 
which was located about 4 NM north northwest of Nashville International 
Airport. The Airpark is now permanently closed and the property sold 
for non-aviation uses. Since the original purpose of the exclusion no 
longer exists, the FAA is proposing to remove the words `` * * * 
excluding that airspace within a 1.5-mile radius of lat. 36[deg]12'00'' 
N., long. 86[deg]42'10'' W. (in the vicinity of Cornelia Fort Airpark) 
* * * '' from the Class C airspace description. This would restore the 
Class C surface area to the standard configuration of a 5 NM radius 
around Nashville International Airport and would enhance the management 
of aircraft operations at the airport.
    Also, a minor correction would be made to update the geographic 
coordinates of the Nashville International Airport to reflect the 
current information in the FAA's aeronautical database. This change 
would remove ``lat. 36[deg]07'31'' N., long. 86[deg]40'35'' W.,'' and 
insert ``lat. 36[deg]07'28'' N., long. 86[deg]40'42'' W.'' in its 
place.
    Class C airspace areas are published in paragraph 4000 of FAA Order 
7400.9W, dated August 8, 2012 and effective September 15, 2012, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class C airspace area 
modification proposed 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. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (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, will 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 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 the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it would modify terminal airspace as required to preserve the safe 
and efficient flow of air traffic in the Nashville, TN, area.
