Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A 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 KyleOakley Field Airport, Murray, KY. Airspace reconfiguration to within a 7 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 Jan 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 mile radius of the airport is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Calloway NDB and cancellation of the NDB approach, and for continued safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates of the airport would be adjusted to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database, and the airport designation header would be updated to include the airport name. Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

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 
in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, 
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 amend controlled airspace in the respective Class D and E 
airspace areas at Wahpeton/Harry Stern Airport, Wahpeton, ND; Hettinger 
Municipal Airport, Hettinger, ND; Gwinner-Roger Melroe Field, Gwinner, 
ND; Rugby Municipal Airport, Rugby, ND; Hector International Airport, 
Fargo, ND; Grand Forks Air Force Base, Grand Forks, ND; Carrington 
Municipal Airport, Carrington, ND; Pembina Municipal Airport, Pembina, 
ND; Bottineau Municipal Airport, Bottineau, ND; Cooperstown Municipal 
Airport, ND; Devils Lake Regional Airport, Devils Lake, ND, and Barnes 
County Municipal Airport, Valley City, ND.

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by 
Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A 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:
    Geographic coordinates in Class D airspace for Hector International 
Airport, Fargo, ND; Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface:
    Within a 6.4-mile radius (previously a 7-mile radius) of Harry 
Stern Airport, Wahpeton, ND, and updating the geographic coordinates of 
the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.4-mile radius (previously a 7-mile radius) of Hettinger 
Municipal Airport, Hettinger, ND, and updating the geographic 
coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
    Within a 6.5-mile radius (previously a 7-mile radius) of Gwinner-
Roger Melroe Field, Gwinner, ND; and updating the geographic 
coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database;
    Within a 6.3-mile radius (previously a 7-mile radius) of Rugby 
Municipal Airport, Rugby, ND; and updating the geographic coordinates 
of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and

[[Page 4224]]

implementation of RNAV procedures that would enhance the safety and 
management of standard instrument approach procedures for IFR 
operations at these airports. The geographic coordinates would be 
adjusted for Hector International Airport, Fargo, ND; Grand Forks Air 
Force Base, Grand Forks, ND; Barnes County Municipal Airport, Valley 
City, ND; Pembina Municipal Airport, Pembina, ND; Devils Lake VOR/DME; 
Devils Lake Regional Airport, Devils Lake, ND; Carrington Municipal 
Airport, Carrington, ND; Bottineau Municipal Airport, Bottineau, ND; 
Cooperstown Municipal Airport, ND, as well as the airport names for 
Barnes County Municipal Airport (formerly Valley City/Barnes County 
Municipal), Valley City, ND, and Devils Lake Regional Airport (formerly 
Devils Lake Municipal Airport), Devils Lake, ND, to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
5000, 6002, 6004 and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated 
August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, 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.
