The segment within 2.7 miles either side of the 085° bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.7mile radius to 10.5 miles east of the airport, and within 1.8 miles either side of the 236° bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.7-mile radius to 8 miles southwest of the airport would be removed and updating the geographic coordinates of Holmes County Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5mile radius (increased from a 6.3-mile radius) of Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH, with a segment within 2.0 miles (reduced from 4- miles) either side of the 037° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 8.6 miles (reduced from a 10- miles) northeast of the airport, and updating the geographic coordinates of Richard Downing Airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Tiverton VOR/DME, cancellation of VOR approaches, and implementation of RNAV procedures at these airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of standard VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:06 Nov 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports. 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, 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.

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 E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH and Richard 
Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH to support IFR operations at these 
airports.

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

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 
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 Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius 
(reduced from a 6.7-mile radius) of the Holmes County Airport, 
Millersburg, OH. The segment within 2.7 miles either side of the 
085[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.7-mile radius 
to 10.5 miles east of the airport, and within 1.8 miles either side of 
the 236[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.7-mile 
radius to 8 miles southwest of the airport would be removed and 
updating the geographic coordinates of Holmes County Airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action also proposes to modify Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.5-mile radius 
(increased from a 6.3-mile radius) of Richard Downing Airport, 
Coshocton, OH, with a segment within 2.0 miles (reduced from 4- miles) 
either side of the 037[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 
6.5-mile radius to 8.6 miles (reduced from a 10- miles) northeast of 
the airport, and updating the geographic coordinates of Richard Downing 
Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
the Tiverton VOR/DME, cancellation of VOR approaches, and 
implementation of RNAV procedures at these airports. Controlled 
airspace is necessary for the safety and management of standard 
instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports.
    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, 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.
