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 Class D and Class E airspace at Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport, Cheyenne, WY to support instrument flight rules operations at the airport. Comments Invited Interested parties are invited to participate in this proposed rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal.

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 Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport, Cheyenne, WY. This action would also update the airport name to Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport (from Cheyenne Airport). Class D airspace would be amended by removing the segment on each side of the Cheyenne ILS localizer east course extending from the 5.6-mile radius to the outer marker. Class E surface area airspace would be modified coincident with the Class D airspace, and effective during the times the Class D is not in effect. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified to within an 8.1-mile radius (from 12.2 miles) of Cheyenne Regional/ Jerry Olson Field Airport, and within a 9.1-mile radius of the airport from a 240° bearing from the airport clockwise to the 300° bearing from the airport with a segment on each side of a 275° bearing VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:14 Jun 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 from the airport extending from the airport 9.1-mile radius to 10.6 miles west of the airport, and with another segment on each side of a 028° bearing from the airport extending from the airport 8.1 mile radius to 10.8 miles northeast of the airport. The airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface would be modified to within a 43.6 mile radius of the airport (from a polygon of similar area) to provide controlled airspace for diverse departures until reaching the overlying Class E airspace. This proposed airspace redesign is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Cheyenne ILS outer marker, removal of the Cheyenne VORTAC from the airspace description, and the availability of diverse departure headings as the FAA transitions from ground-based navigation aids to satellite-based navigation. Also, this action would update the airport’s geographic coordinates for Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA’s current aeronautical database. Finally, this action would make an editorial change in the legal description by replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 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 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. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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.

Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Cheyenne, WY

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify Class D airspace, Class E 
surface area airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface, and Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface at Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport

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 Class D airspace, Class E 
surface area airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface, and Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 
feet above the surface at Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport, 
Cheyenne, WY. This action would also update the airport name to 
Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport (from Cheyenne Airport).
    Class D airspace would be amended by removing the segment on each 
side of the Cheyenne ILS localizer east course extending from the 5.6-
mile radius to the outer marker.
    Class E surface area airspace would be modified coincident with the 
Class D airspace, and effective during the times the Class D is not in 
effect.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
would be modified to within an 8.1-mile radius (from 12.2 miles) of 
Cheyenne Regional/Jerry Olson Field Airport, and within a 9.1-mile 
radius of the airport from a 240[deg] bearing from the airport 
clockwise to the 300[deg] bearing from the airport with a segment on 
each side of a 275[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 
airport 9.1-mile radius to 10.6 miles west of the airport, and with 
another segment on each side of a 028[deg] bearing from the airport 
extending from the airport 8.1 mile radius to 10.8 miles northeast of 
the airport. The airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the 
surface would be modified to within a 43.6 mile radius of the airport 
(from a polygon of similar area) to provide controlled airspace for 
diverse departures until reaching the overlying Class E airspace.
    This proposed airspace redesign is necessary due to the 
decommissioning of the Cheyenne ILS outer marker, removal of the 
Cheyenne VORTAC from the airspace description, and the availability of 
diverse departure headings as the FAA transitions from ground-based 
navigation aids to satellite-based navigation. Also, this action would 
update the airport's geographic coordinates for Class D and E airspace 
areas to reflect the FAA's current aeronautical database. Finally, this 
action would make an editorial change in the legal description by 
replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, and 6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11A, 
dated August 3, 2016 and effective September 15, 2016, which is

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.
