PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 65241 The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Kona International Airport at Keahole, KailuaKona, HI. The segment of controlled airspace extending from the 7.4-mile radius of the airport is increased from 8.5 miles to 14.5 miles south of the airport to accommodate the RNAV (GPS) and ILS or LOC standard instrument approach procedures. Also, the geographic coordinates of the airport would be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database for the respective Class D and E airspace areas. The airport formerly called KailuaKona, Keahole Airport, Keahole Airport is corrected to Kona International Airport at Keahole. This action was initiated by a biennial review of the airspace and is necessary for the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9X, dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined 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 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 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes the authority for the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is E:\FR\FM\31OCP1.SGM 31OCP1 65242 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 211 / Thursday, October 31, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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 proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would modify controlled airspace at Kona International Airport at Keahole, Kailua-Kona, HI. This proposal will 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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace area 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Kona International 
Airport at Keahole, Kailua-Kona, HI. The segment of controlled airspace 
extending from the 7.4-mile radius of the airport is increased from 8.5 
miles to 14.5 miles south of the airport to accommodate the RNAV (GPS) 
and ILS or LOC standard instrument approach procedures. Also, the 
geographic coordinates of the airport would be updated to coincide with 
the FAA's aeronautical database for the respective Class D and E 
airspace areas. The airport formerly called Kailua-Kona, Keahole 
Airport, Keahole Airport is corrected to Kona International Airport at 
Keahole. This action was initiated by a biennial review of the airspace 
and is necessary for the safety and management of aircraft operations 
at the airport.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9X, 
dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined 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 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 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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes 
the authority for 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 
proposed regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would 
modify controlled airspace at Kona International Airport at Keahole, 
Kailua-Kona, HI.
    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies
