VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:20 Jun 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius of Tekamah Municipal Airport, Tekamah, NE., with a segment extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 9.7 miles southeast of the airport. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary to accommodate the SIAPs at Tekamah Municipal Airport for compliance with FAA Joint Order 7400.2K, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. 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 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 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.

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 by removing Class E surface area airspace 
at Farmington Regional Airport, Farmington, MO, as the airspace is no 
longer needed. This proposal also would modify Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at the following 
airports:
    Within a 6.8-mile radius of Bill Martin Memorial Airport, Ava, MO, 
with a segment extending to from the 6.8-mile radius to the Dogwood VHF 
omnidirectional range collocated tactical air navigation (VORTAC) west/
northwest of the airport;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius of Cameron Municipal Airport, Cameron, MO;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius of Chillicothe Municipal Airport, 
Chillicothe, MO;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius of Farmington Regional Airport, 
Farmington, MO, with a segment extending from the 6.4-mile radius to 
11.5 miles southwest of the airport, and a segment extending from the 
6.4-mile radius to the Farmington VORTAC; and
    Within a 6.9-mile radius of Festus Memorial Airport, Festus, MO, 
with a

[[Page 41902]]

segment extending from the 6.9-mile radius to 8.8 miles south of the 
airport.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
NDBs including the Cameron NDB, Perrine NDB, and Festus NDB; 
cancellation of NDB approaches; and implementation of RNAV procedures 
at the above airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety 
and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR 
operations at the airports.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
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 designations listed in this document will be 
published subsequently in the Order.

    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 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.
