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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface from an 8-mile radius to a 9-mile radius of Penn Valley Airport, Selinsgrove, PA because a new RNAV (GPS) standard instrument approach procedure to Runway 35 has been developed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The proposed amendment would remove the segment extending northbound from Selinsgrove VOR/ DME, northbound, would be removed because it is no longer required as part of the airspace redesign. Additionally, the amendment would update the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database, and would correct the name of the navigation aid from VORTAC to VOR/DME. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:06 Nov 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 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 designation 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. 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, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. 55061 Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth. * * * * * AEA PA E5 Selinsgrove, PA [Amended] Penn Valley Airport, PA (Lat. 40°49′16″ N., long. 76°51′51″ W.)

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 considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet or more above the surface from an 8-mile radius to a 9-
mile radius of Penn Valley Airport, Selinsgrove, PA because a new RNAV 
(GPS) standard instrument approach procedure to Runway 35 has been 
developed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the 
airport.
    The proposed amendment would remove the segment extending 
northbound from Selinsgrove VOR/DME, northbound, would be removed 
because it is no longer required as part of the airspace redesign. 
Additionally, the amendment would update the geographic coordinates of 
the airport to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database, and would 
correct the name of the navigation aid from VORTAC to VOR/DME.
    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 designation 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. 
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, will 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.
