FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal E:\FR\FM\08SEP1.SGM 08SEP1 62046 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 174 / Thursday, September 8, 2016 / Proposed Rules WI, reducing existing segment extending from the 6.8-mile radius to 11.4 miles southwest, and adding segments extending from the 6.8-mile radius to 7 miles northeast and 10 miles northwest of the airport. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV procedures at these airports, and for the safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations. 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. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

[Docket No. FAA-2016-8830; Airspace Docket No. 16-AGL-18]


Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace for the Following 
Wisconsin Towns; Land O' Lakes, WI; Manitowish Waters, WI; Merrill, WI; 
Oconto, WI; Phillips, WI; Platteville, WI; Solon Springs, WI; Superior, 
WI; and West Bend, WI

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Kings Land O' Lakes Airport, 
Land O' Lakes, WI; Manitowish Waters Airport, Manitowish Waters, WI; 
Merrill Municipal Airport, Merrill, WI; Oconto-J. Douglas Bake 
Municipal Airport, Oconto, WI; Price County Airport, Phillips, WI; 
Platteville Municipal Airport, Platteville, WI; Solon Springs Municipal 
Airport, Solon Springs, WI; Richard I. Bong Airport, Superior, WI; and 
West Bend Municipal Airport, West Bend, WI. Decommissioning of non-
directional radio beacons (NDBs), cancellation of NDB approaches, and 
implementation of area navigation (RNAV) procedures have made this 
action necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight 
Rules (IFR) operations at these airports. Additionally, the geographic 
coordinates for Kings Land O' Lakes Airport; Manitowish Waters Airport; 
Oconto-J. Douglas Bake Municipal Airport; and Solon Springs Municipal 
Airport would be adjusted to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database. The name of Oconto-J. Douglas Bake Municipal Airport 
(formerly Oconto Municipal Airport) also would be updated.

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 extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface:
    Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of Kings 
Land O' Lakes Airport, Land O' Lakes, WI, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
    Within a 6.3-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of 
Manitowish Waters Airport, Manitowish, WI, and removing the 9-mile 
segment southeast of the airport, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's database;
    Within a 6.6-mile radius (reduced from the 7-mile radius) of 
Merrill Municipal Airport, Merrill, WI;
    By removing the 7-mile segment extending from the 6.3-mile radius 
southeast of Oconto-J. Douglas Bake Municipal Airport, Oconto, WI, and 
updating the name and geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    By removing the 7-mile segments extending from the 6.6-mile radius 
southwest and northeast of Price County Airport, Phillips, WI;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the 7.4-mile radius) of 
Platteville Municipal Airport, Platteville, WI, with an extension 
southeast of the airport from the 6.4-mile radius to 10.2 miles;
    Within a 6.3-mile radius (reduced from the 6.6-mile radius) of 
Solon Springs Municipal Airport, Solon Springs, WI, and removing the 
7.4-mile segment north of the airport, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
    Within an 8.5-mile radius (increased from a 6.7-mile radius) of 
Richard I. Bong Airport, Superior, WI, and removing the 12.2-mile 
segment southeast of the airport;
    And within a 6.8-mile radius (reduced from the 7.4-mile radius) of 
the West Bend Municipal Airport, West Bend,

[[Page 62046]]

WI, reducing existing segment extending from the 6.8-mile radius to 
11.4 miles southwest, and adding segments extending from the 6.8-mile 
radius to 7 miles northeast and 10 miles northwest of the airport.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV 
procedures at these airports, and for the safety and management of the 
standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations.
    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.
