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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:29 May 18, 2017 Jkt 241001 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 the Class D airspace to within a 4.2-mile radius (increased from a 4.1-mile radius) of Kenosha Regional Airport, Kenosha, WI; Modifying the Class E airspace designated as a surface area to within a 4.2-mile radius (increased from a 4.1mile radius) of Kenosha Regional Airport, and removing the Kenosha VOR and the 7-mile extension northeast of the airport; Removing the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace at Kenosha Regional Airport; and Modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) of Kenosha Regional Airport (formerly Kenosha Municipal Airport), with an extension from the Kenosha Localizer to 10 miles west of the localizer, and updating the name and geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Kenosha VOR and to bring the airspace in compliance with FAA Order JO 7400.2K, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, at this airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport. Additionally, this action would replace the outdated term Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the Class D and Class E surface area airspace legal descriptions. 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 7400.11A, 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 the Class D airspace to within a 4.2-mile radius 
(increased from a 4.1-mile radius) of Kenosha Regional Airport, 
Kenosha, WI;
    Modifying the Class E airspace designated as a surface area to 
within a 4.2-mile radius (increased from a 4.1-mile radius) of Kenosha 
Regional Airport, and removing the Kenosha VOR and the 7-mile extension 
northeast of the airport;
    Removing the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D 
airspace at Kenosha Regional Airport; and
    Modifying the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from a 7-mile radius) 
of Kenosha Regional Airport (formerly Kenosha Municipal Airport), with 
an extension from the Kenosha Localizer to 10 miles west of the 
localizer, and updating the name and geographic coordinates of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
the Kenosha VOR and to bring the airspace in compliance with FAA Order 
JO 7400.2K, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, at this airport. 
Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of 
standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the 
airport.
    Additionally, this action would replace the outdated term Airport/
Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the Class D and 
Class E surface area airspace legal descriptions.
    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 E airspace designations listed

    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.
