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 designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID. Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area would be reduced to a 5-mile wide segment (from 8.6 miles wide) extending to 7 miles east (from 9.2 miles east), and a 5-mile wide segment (from 8.6 miles wide) extending to 7.1 miles (from 9.2 miles) west of the airport. Also, the part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status would be removed from Class E airspace designated as an extension, as this airspace is continuous. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be reduced to a 12-mile wide segment (from a 16.5-mile wide segment) extending to 21.9 miles east (from 26.1 miles east), and 16 miles west (from 20 miles west) of the airport. Also, the small extension to 8.2 miles southeast of the airport would be removed. Finally, this action would replace the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ with the term ‘‘Chart Supplement’’ in the Class D, and Class E surface airspace legal descriptions, and remove the words ‘‘Twin Falls’’ from the airport name in the airspace designations for Class D and E airspace noted in this proposal. These modifications are necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:39 Dec 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 respectively, 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 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 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.

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 designated 
as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Joslin 
Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID.
    Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E 
surface area would be reduced to a 5-mile wide segment (from 8.6 miles 
wide) extending to 7 miles east (from 9.2 miles east), and a 5-mile 
wide segment (from 8.6 miles wide) extending to 7.1 miles (from 9.2 
miles) west of the airport. Also, the part-time Notice to Airmen 
(NOTAM) status would be removed from Class E airspace designated as an 
extension, as this airspace is continuous.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
would be reduced to a 12-mile wide segment (from a 16.5-mile wide 
segment) extending to 21.9 miles east (from 26.1 miles east), and 16 
miles west (from 20 miles west) of the airport. Also, the small 
extension to 8.2 miles southeast of the airport would be removed.
    Finally, this action would replace the outdated term ``Airport/
Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' in the Class D, 
and Class E surface airspace legal descriptions, and remove the words 
``Twin Falls'' from the airport name in the airspace designations for 
Class D and E airspace noted in this proposal.
    These modifications are necessary for the safety and management of 
IFR operations at the airport.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, and 6005, respectively, 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 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.
