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

as it establishes Class E airspace at Deblois Flight Strip, Deblois, 
ME, to ensure the efficient use of airspace within the National 
Airspace System.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM in the 
Federal Register (82 FR 39065, August 16, 2017) Docket No. FAA-2015-
2891 to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or 
more above the surface within a 7-mile radius of Deblois Flight Strip, 
Deblois, ME, providing the controlled airspace required to support the 
new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for IFR 
operations at the airport. 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 E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005, of 
FAA Order 7400.11B dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15,

subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
or more above the surface within a 7-mile radius of Deblois Flight 
Strip, Deblois, ME, providing the controlled airspace required to 
support the new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for 
IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005, of 
FAA Order 7400.11B, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017, 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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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.
