The Proposed Amendment 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2013–0073; Airspace Docket No. 13–ASO–2] In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: AGENCY: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at Dayton, TN, as the Hardwick Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) have been developed at Mark Anton Airport. Also, Hardwick Field Airport has closed; therefore, the controlled airspace area would be removed. This proposal also would establish Class E Airspace at Cleveland Regional Jetport, Cleveland, TN, to accommodate area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) SIAPs at the airport. Information regarding Bradley Memorial Hospital would be added to the Cleveland, TN, airspace description and removed from both the Dayton, TN, regulatory text as well as its listing as Bradley Memorial Hospital, Cleveland, TN, to correct an erroneous reference. This proposal would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in the Dayton, TN, and Cleveland, TN, airspace areas.

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 within a 9.8mile radius of Mark Anton Airport, Cleveland, TN, to support new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed at Mark Anton Airport. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Hardwick NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach. Also, controlled airspace is no longer needed and would be removed from Hardwick Field Airport as the airport has closed. This proposal also would establish Class E airspace at Cleveland, TN, providing the controlled airspace required to support the RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for Cleveland Regional Jetport. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be established within a 7.4-mile radius of the airport, with an extension from the radius to 12 miles southwest of the airport for the safety and management of IFR operations. Bradley Memorial Hospital information would be added to the Cleveland, TN descriptor and regulatory text, and removed from both the Dayton, TN, regulatory text as well as its listing as Bradley Memorial Hospital, Cleveland, TN, to correct an erroneous reference. This proposal would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in the Dayton, TN, and Cleveland, TN, airspace areas. Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 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 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:09 Apr 30, 2013 Jkt 229001 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 in the Dayton, TN, and Cleveland, TN, areas. This proposal would be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at Dayton, TN, 
as the Hardwick Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned 
and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) have been 
developed at Mark Anton Airport. Also, Hardwick Field Airport has 
closed; therefore, the controlled airspace area would be removed. This 
proposal also would establish Class E Airspace at Cleveland Regional 
Jetport, Cleveland, TN, to accommodate area navigation (RNAV) global 
positioning system (GPS) SIAPs at the airport. Information regarding 
Bradley Memorial Hospital would be added to the Cleveland, TN, airspace 
description and removed from both the Dayton, TN, regulatory text as 
well as its listing as Bradley Memorial Hospital, Cleveland, TN, to 
correct an erroneous reference. This proposal would enhance the safety 
and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in 
the Dayton, TN, and Cleveland, TN, airspace areas.

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 within a 9.8-mile radius of Mark Anton 
Airport, Cleveland, TN, to support new Standard Instrument Approach 
Procedures developed at Mark Anton Airport. Airspace reconfiguration is 
necessary due to the decommissioning of the Hardwick NDB and 
cancellation of the NDB approach. Also, controlled airspace is no 
longer needed and would be removed from Hardwick Field Airport as the 
airport has closed. This proposal also would establish Class E airspace 
at Cleveland, TN, providing the controlled airspace required to support 
the RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for Cleveland 
Regional Jetport. Controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface would be established within a 7.4-mile radius of the 
airport, with an extension from the radius to 12 miles southwest of the 
airport for the safety and management of IFR operations. Bradley 
Memorial Hospital information would be added to the Cleveland, TN 
descriptor and regulatory text, and removed from both the Dayton, TN, 
regulatory text as well as its listing as Bradley Memorial Hospital, 
Cleveland, TN, to correct an erroneous reference. This proposal would 
enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules 
(IFR) operations in the Dayton, TN, and Cleveland, TN, airspace areas.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 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 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 amend Class E airspace in the Dayton, TN, 
and Cleveland, TN, areas.
    This proposal would be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
