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 amending Class D airspace, Class E airspace designated as a surface area, Class E airspace designated as an extension, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 E:\FR\FM\06DEP1.SGM 06DEP1 jstallworth on DSKBBY8HB2PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 6, 2017 / Proposed Rules feet above the surface at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID. This airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules operations at the airport. This proposal would amend Class D and Class E surface area airspace by increasing each area to a 4.3-mile radius of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 290° bearing clockwise to the airport 066° bearing; and within a 5.1-mile radius of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 066° bearing clockwise to the airport 115° bearing; and within a 6.6-mile radius of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 115° bearing clockwise to the airport 164° bearing; and within a 4.3-mile radius of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 164° bearing clockwise to the airport 230° bearing; and within a 6.6-mile radius of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 230° bearing clockwise to the airport 290° bearing. Also, the class D airspace extending upward from the surface would be reduced up to and including 2,700 feet MSL (from 3,900 feet). Class E airspace designated as an extension would be modified to within 1.0 mile each side of the 100° bearing from the airport extending from the 5.1mile radius of the airport to 7.9 miles east of the airport (from 2.7 miles each side of the Lewiston-Nez Perce ILS localizer course extending from the 4.1mile radius of the airport to 14 miles east), and within 1.0 mile each side of the 313° bearing from the airport extending from the airport 4.3-mile radius to 6.1 miles northwest of the airport (from 3.5 miles each side of the Nez Perce VOR/DME 266° radial extending from the 4.1-mile radius of the airport to 13.1 miles west of the airport). Also, the part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status would be removed. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be modified to within a 6.3-mile radius of the airport, and within 8.5 miles north and 4.3 miles south of the airport 099° and 279° bearings extending to 27.8 miles east and 22.5 miles west of the airport (from an irregularly shaped polygon generally extending to 19 miles northeast, 24 miles east, 19 miles southeast, and 25 miles west). Additionally, this action would replace the term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ with the term ‘‘Chart Supplement’’ in the Class D and Class E surface airspace. 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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending Class D airspace, Class E 
airspace designated as a surface area, Class E airspace designated as 
an extension, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700

[[Page 57559]]

feet above the surface at Lewiston-Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, 
ID. This airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management 
of instrument flight rules operations at the airport.
    This proposal would amend Class D and Class E surface area airspace 
by increasing each area to a 4.3-mile radius of the airport (from the 
4.1-mile radius) from the airport 290[deg] bearing clockwise to the 
airport 066[deg] bearing; and within a 5.1-mile radius of the airport 
(from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 066[deg] bearing clockwise 
to the airport 115[deg] bearing; and within a 6.6-mile radius of the 
airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 115[deg] bearing 
clockwise to the airport 164[deg] bearing; and within a 4.3-mile radius 
of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 164[deg] 
bearing clockwise to the airport 230[deg] bearing; and within a 6.6-
mile radius of the airport (from the 4.1-mile radius) from the airport 
230[deg] bearing clockwise to the airport 290[deg] bearing. Also, the 
class D airspace extending upward from the surface would be reduced up 
to and including 2,700 feet MSL (from 3,900 feet).
    Class E airspace designated as an extension would be modified to 
within 1.0 mile each side of the 100[deg] bearing from the airport 
extending from the 5.1-mile radius of the airport to 7.9 miles east of 
the airport (from 2.7 miles each side of the Lewiston-Nez Perce ILS 
localizer course extending from the 4.1-mile radius of the airport to 
14 miles east), and within 1.0 mile each side of the 313[deg] bearing 
from the airport extending from the airport 4.3-mile radius to 6.1 
miles northwest of the airport (from 3.5 miles each side of the Nez 
Perce VOR/DME 266[deg] radial extending from the 4.1-mile radius of the 
airport to 13.1 miles west of the airport). Also, the part-time Notice 
to Airmen (NOTAM) status would be removed.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
would be modified to within a 6.3-mile radius of the airport, and 
within 8.5 miles north and 4.3 miles south of the airport 099[deg] and 
279[deg] bearings extending to 27.8 miles east and 22.5 miles west of 
the airport (from an irregularly shaped polygon generally extending to 
19 miles northeast, 24 miles east, 19 miles southeast, and 25 miles 
west).
    Additionally, this action would replace the term ``Airport/Facility 
Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' in the Class D and Class 
E surface airspace.
    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.
