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 Indiana County Airport (Jimmy Stewart Field), Indiana, PA. Airspace reconfiguration to within a 8.2-mile radius of the airport and within 2 miles either side of the 096° bearing from the airport, extending from the 8.2-mile radius to 13.6 miles east of the airport is necessary to support the new runway at the airport. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jun 23, 2016 Jkt 238001 Controlled airspace is necessary for IFR operations. The geographic coordinates of the airport would be adjusted to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 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 E airspace designation 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, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of 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

the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of 
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 modify Class D and Class E airspace at Charles M. Schulz-
Sonoma County Airport, Santa Rosa, CA.

rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as 
they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the 
views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed 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 Class E airspace designated as 
an extension at Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport, Santa Rosa, 
CA, by creating an area southeast of the airport to contain IFR 
arrivals below 1,000 feet above the surface, and by reducing in size 
the Class E surface area extension northwest of the airport to only 
that necessary to contain IFR arrivals below 1,000 feet above the 
surface. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface would be modified to include only that area necessary to 
contain IFR arrivals below 1,500 feet above the surface and IFR 
departures until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface. The proposal 
would also update the airport's geographic coordinates for all Class D 
and E airspace areas. The proposed modifications are necessary for the 
safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 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 Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. 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

[[Page 41282]]

routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air 
navigation, it is certified that this 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.

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.
