The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D surface area at Ernest A. Love Field, Prescott, Arizona. A segment of Class E airspace would extend from the 6-mile radius of the airport to 11 miles southwest. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified to within a 18.7-mile radius of the airport; the Class E airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be modified to within a 22-mile radius of the airport clockwise east to west, and within a 38-mile radius of the airport to the north. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport and would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations. The geographic coordinates of the airport would be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database for the respective Class D and Class E airspace areas. This action also would correct the airport name in Class D and Class E surface airspace descriptions from Prescott, Ernest A. Love Field to Ernest A. Love Field. Class D airspace and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 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 airspace and Class E airspace designation 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:20 Aug 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace 
designated as an extension to Class D surface area at Ernest A. Love 
Field, Prescott, Arizona. A segment of Class E airspace would extend 
from the 6-mile radius of the airport to 11 miles southwest. Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be 
modified to within a 18.7-mile radius of the airport; the Class E 
airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would 
be modified to within a 22-mile radius of the airport clockwise east to 
west, and within a 38-mile radius of the airport to the north. 
Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate RNAV (GPS) standard 
instrument approach procedures at the airport and would enhance the 
safety and management of IFR operations. The geographic coordinates of 
the airport would be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database for the respective Class D and Class E airspace areas. This 
action also would correct the airport name in Class D and Class E 
surface airspace descriptions from Prescott, Ernest A. Love Field to 
Ernest A. Love Field.
    Class D airspace and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraphs 5000, 6002, 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 airspace and 
Class E airspace designation 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 regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it would establish and modify controlled airspace at Ernest A. Love 
Field, Prescott, AZ.
    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.
