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 establishing Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designated as an extension, and modifying Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Truckee-Tahoe Airport, Truckee, CA, to support the commissioning of a Non- PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Federal Contract Tower (NFCT), and to support standard instrument approach and departure procedures under IFR operations at the airport. The Truckee-Tahoe NFCT would initially operate as a part-time, seasonal, air traffic control facility. The associated Class D airspace and Class E extension airspace areas would be effective during the specific dates and times established, in advance by NOTAM. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement. Class D airspace would be established upward from the surface to and including 8,400 feet MSL within a 4.2mile radius of Truckee-Tahoe Airport. Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area would be established in two segments approximately 4 miles wide, one extending to approximately 10 miles north, and one 12 miles northwest, of Truckee-Tahoe Airport. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface (currently located north and northwest of the airport) would be shifted slightly east to precisely align with the RNAV instrument approach procedures to runways 11 and 02. Also, a small area would be expanded north of TruckeeTahoe Airport to provide controlled airspace for IFR departures using runway 29. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 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 proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is noncontroversial 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic E:\FR\FM\28JYP1.SGM 28JYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 144 / Friday, July 28, 2017 / Proposed Rules 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.

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 establishing Class D airspace, and 
Class E airspace designated as an extension, and modifying Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Truckee-
Tahoe Airport, Truckee, CA, to support the commissioning of a Non-
Federal Contract Tower (NFCT), and to support standard instrument 
approach and departure procedures under IFR operations at the airport.
    The Truckee-Tahoe NFCT would initially operate as a part-time, 
seasonal, air traffic control facility. The associated Class D airspace 
and Class E extension airspace areas would be effective during the 
specific dates and times established, in advance by NOTAM. The 
effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in 
the Chart Supplement.
    Class D airspace would be established upward from the surface to 
and including 8,400 feet MSL within a 4.2-mile radius of Truckee-Tahoe 
Airport.
    Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E 
surface area would be established in two segments approximately 4 miles 
wide, one extending to approximately 10 miles north, and one 12 miles 
northwest, of Truckee-Tahoe Airport.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
(currently located north and northwest of the airport) would be shifted 
slightly east to precisely align with the RNAV instrument approach 
procedures to runways 11 and 02. Also, a small area would be expanded 
north of Truckee-Tahoe Airport to provide controlled airspace for IFR 
departures using runway 29.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 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 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 proposed 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 proposed 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.
