Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Fort Knox, KY, and Louisville, KY, 50506-50508 [2017-23254]

The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Prineville Airport, Prineville, OR. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface is modified to within an 8-mile radius (from a 6.9-mile radius) of Prineville airport, with a 4.2mile (from 10 miles) wide segment extending to 11.4 miles (from 12.3 miles) west of the airport. Additionally, the Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface designated to Prineville Airport would be removed since this airspace area duplicates the larger Bend Class E en route airspace area. This airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with RULES 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.

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 amends Class D and E airspace in the Fort Knox, KY, and 
Louisville, KY areas, to support IFR operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (82 FR 24269, May 26, 2017) Docket No. FAA-2016-9499 proposing 
to remove NOTAM part-time information from Class E airspace designated 
as an extension to Class D airspace at Godman Army Airfield, Fort Knox, 
KY, and Bowman Field Airport, Louisville, KY. Also, the NPRM proposed 
to update the geographic coordinates of these airports, and Louisville 
International Airport-Standiford Field. Subsequent to publication, the 
FAA found that some of the geographic coordinates were incorrect and 
makes the correction in this rule. Also, this action recognizes the 
name change of Louisville International Airport-Standiford Field, 
(formerly Louisville Standiford Field).
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No 
comments were received.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 
5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11B dated August 3, 2017, 
and effective September 15, 2017, which is incorporated by reference in 
14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this 
document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 removes the NOTAM part-time status of the Class E airspace 
designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at Godman Army 
Airfield (AAF) Fort Knox, KY; and Bowman Field Airport, Louisville, KY.
    Also, the geographic coordinates are amended and corrected at these 
airports and Louisville International-Standiford Field Airport, KY, in 
Class D airspace, Class E surface airspace, Class E airspace designated 
as an extension to a Class D surface area, and Class E airspace areas 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface to be in 
concert with the FAA's aeronautical database. Also, the name change of 
Louisville International Airport-Standiford Field, (formerly Louisville 
Standiford Field) is recognized.
    These changes are necessary for continued safety and management of 
IFR operations at these airports.

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. 
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 
only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified 
that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
