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, PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. 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, at Troy Municipal Airport at N. Kenneth Campbell Field, formerly Troy Municipal Airport, Troy, AL, as new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed requiring airspace redesign. Additionally, Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D surface area would be removed due to the decommissioning of the Troy VOR and cancellation of the VOR approaches. For the Class D and E airspace areas above the geographic coordinates of the airport would be amended to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. This action is necessary for continued safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9Z, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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 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 would be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5.6.5a, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: E:\FR\FM\21JNP1.SGM 21JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 119 / Tuesday, June 21, 2016 / Proposed Rules 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 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, at Troy Municipal Airport at N. 
Kenneth Campbell Field, formerly Troy Municipal Airport, Troy, AL, as 
new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed 
requiring airspace redesign. Additionally, Class E airspace designated 
as an extension to Class D surface area would be removed due to the 
decommissioning of the Troy VOR and cancellation of the VOR approaches. 
For the Class D and E airspace areas above the geographic coordinates 
of the airport would be amended to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical 
database. This action is necessary for continued safety and management 
of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 
5000, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9Z, dated August 
6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations 
listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

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 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 would be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5.6.5a, ``Environmental 
Impacts:

Policies and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
