ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: This action proposes to amend Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface airspace area, and Class E airspace upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR, to accommodate airspace redesign. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport also would be amended to remove reference to the Corvallis Municipal Airport by creating a stand-alone airspace designation for Corvallis Municipal Airport. Additionally, this proposal would update the airport reference points for these airports in Class D and E airspace, as well as remove the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) requirement noted in Class E surface area airspace. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:47 Aug 12, 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 designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mahlon Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR. The Class E surface extension to the north would be slightly modified to contain aircraft using the VOR–A approach, and the extension to the south would be enlarged to contain aircraft using the RNP (RNAV) Z instrument approaches as they descend below 1,000 feet above the surface. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be reduced to the northeast and west of the airport, to only that area necessary to contain IFR arrival aircraft, descending below 1,500 feet above the surface, and IFR departure aircraft, until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface, and the Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be revoked, as this airspace area is provided by the Bend, OR Class E En Route airspace area, and duplication is not necessary. This action also would create standalone Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Corvallis Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR, thereby removing reference to Corvallis Municipal Airport from the Mahlon Sweet Field Airport airspace designation. The overall Class E airspace area near Corvallis Municipal Airport would remain generally the same, with a slight reduction north, and a slight enlargement west of the airport. The geographic coordinates of these airports would be updated for all Class D and Class E airspace areas. Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000, 6002, 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 53963 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 modifying Class E airspace designated 
as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mahlon 
Sweet Field Airport, Eugene, OR. The Class E surface extension to the 
north would be slightly modified to contain aircraft using the VOR-A 
approach, and the extension to the south would be enlarged to contain 
aircraft using the RNP (RNAV) Z instrument approaches as they descend 
below 1,000 feet above the surface. Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface would be reduced to the northeast and 
west of the airport, to only that area necessary to contain IFR arrival 
aircraft, descending below 1,500 feet above the surface, and IFR 
departure aircraft, until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface, and 
the Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface 
would be revoked, as this airspace area is provided by the Bend, OR 
Class E En Route airspace area, and duplication is not necessary.
    This action also would create stand-alone Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Corvallis 
Municipal Airport, Corvallis, OR, thereby removing reference to 
Corvallis Municipal Airport from the Mahlon Sweet Field Airport 
airspace designation. The overall Class E airspace area near Corvallis 
Municipal Airport would remain generally the same, with a slight 
reduction north, and a slight enlargement west of the airport. The 
geographic coordinates of these airports would be updated for all Class 
D and Class E airspace areas.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 
5000, 6002, 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 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.
