Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.9Z, airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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 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 Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Capital Region International Airport Class C airspace area by removing the cutout from the Class C surface area that excluded the airspace within a 1-mile radius of the former Davis Airport and the airspace 1 mile either side of the 090° bearing from the former Davis Airport. The exclusion from the Class C surface area was in place solely to accommodate operations at Davis Airport, which was located about 3.5 NM east of the Capital Region International Airport. Davis Airport was permanently closed in 2000, and removed from the FAA’s aeronautical database in 2006. Since the original purpose of the exclusion no longer exists, the FAA is proposing to remove the words ‘‘. . . excluding that airspace within a 1-mile radius of the Davis Airport and excluding that airspace 1 mile either side of the 090° bearing from Davis Airport to the 5-mile radius from Capital City Airport . . .’’ from the Class C airspace description. This would restore the Class C surface area to a standard configuration of a 5–NM radius around Capital Region International Airport and enhance the management of aircraft operations at the airport. Also, this action would update the airport name and geographic coordinates to reflect the current information in the FAA’s aeronautical database. This change would replace ‘‘Capital City Airport’’ with ‘‘Capital Region International Airport’’ and PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.9Z, airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective 
September 15, 2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify the Capital Region International 
Airport Class C airspace area by removing the cutout from the Class C 
surface area that excluded the airspace within a 1-mile radius of the 
former Davis Airport and the airspace 1 mile either side of the 
090[deg] bearing from the former Davis Airport. The exclusion from the 
Class C surface area was in place solely to accommodate operations at 
Davis Airport, which was located about 3.5 NM east of the Capital 
Region International Airport. Davis Airport was permanently closed in 
2000, and removed from the FAA's aeronautical database in 2006. Since 
the original purpose of the exclusion no longer exists, the FAA is 
proposing to remove the words ``. . . excluding that airspace within a 
1-mile radius of the Davis Airport and excluding that airspace 1 mile 
either side of the 090[deg] bearing from Davis Airport to the 5-mile 
radius from Capital City Airport . . .'' from the Class C airspace 
description. This would restore the Class C surface area to a standard 
configuration of a 5-NM radius around Capital Region International 
Airport and enhance the management of aircraft operations at the 
airport.
    Also, this action would update the airport name and geographic 
coordinates to reflect the current information in the FAA's 
aeronautical database. This change would replace ``Capital City 
Airport'' with ``Capital Region International Airport'' and replace 
``lat. 42[deg]46'43'' N., long. 84[deg]35'15'' W.'' with ``lat. 
42[deg]46'43'' N., long. 84[deg]35'10'' W.''
    Class C airspace areas are published in paragraph 4000 of FAA Order 
7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015 and effective September 15, 2015, which

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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 
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.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
