Class E airspace as an extension to the Class D would be established with a segment extending 1 mile southeast of the airport. The Class D airspace area boundary between Hill AFB and Ogden-Hinckley Airport would be moved 1 mile northwest and the radius of Hill AFB expanded from 4.3 miles to 4.6 miles. This action would also update the geographic coordinates for Hill AFB and OgdenHinckley Airport. After a review of the airspace, the FAA found modification of the airspace necessary for the safety and management of aircraft departing and arriving under IFR operations at the airport. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 and 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9Y, dated August 6, 2014 and effective September 15, 2014, 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 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Apr 30, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 amend controlled airspace at Hill AFB, Ogden UT.

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.9Y, Airspace

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace as an 
extension to Class D surface area, modifying Class D airspace at Hill 
AFB, Ogden, UT. Class E airspace as an extension to the Class D would 
be established with a segment extending 1 mile southeast of the 
airport. The Class D airspace area boundary between Hill AFB and Ogden-
Hinckley Airport would be moved 1 mile northwest and the radius of Hill 
AFB expanded from 4.3 miles to 4.6 miles. This action would also update 
the geographic coordinates for Hill AFB and Ogden-Hinckley Airport. 
After a review of the airspace, the FAA found modification of the 
airspace necessary for the safety and management of aircraft departing 
and arriving under IFR operations at the airport.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000 and 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9Y, dated 
August 6, 2014 and effective September 15, 2014, 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 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 amend controlled airspace at Hill AFB, Ogden UT.

Environmental Review

    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.
