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 D airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and establishing Class E surface area airspace at Wheeler AAF, Honolulu, HI. Class D airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 3,300 feet MSL would be modified to within a 2.6-mile radius of Wheeler AAF, (formerly Wheeler AFB), then extend to a 3.7-mile radius from the southeast to the southwest, adjoining the boundary of Restricted Area R–3109 to the west, excluding that airspace below 1,800 feet MSL beyond 3.3 miles from the airport from the 89° bearing clockwise to the 218° bearing from the airport. Additionally, an editorial change would be made to the Class D airspace legal description removing the words ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’. An editorial change also would be made VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:58 Jul 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 removing the city associated with the airport name in the airspace designation to comply with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. Class E surface area airspace would be established to be coincident with the lateral dimensions of the Class D airspace, and would be effective continuously to provide protection to instrument procedures. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet would be modified to that airspace within a 4.2-mile radius of Wheeler AAF. The Koko Head VORTAC navigation aid would be removed, as it is no longer needed to describe the boundary. Additionally, this action proposes to update the airport name from Wheeler AFB to Wheeler AAF, and the geographic coordinates for the associated Class D and Class E airspace areas to match the FAA’s aeronautical database. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 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 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.

Conclusion I. Overview Under the Securities Act, every offer and sale of securities must be registered or subject to an exemption from registration. The Commission has long recognized that offers and sales of securities as compensation present different issues than offers and sales that raise capital for the issuer of the securities.1 Among other considerations, the Commission has recognized that the relationship between the issuer and recipient of securities is often different in a compensatory rather than capital raising transaction. The Commission has thus provided a limited exemption from registration—17 CFR 230.701 (Rule 701)—for certain compensatory securities transactions as well as a specialized form—Form S–8—for registering certain compensatory transactions. Both Rule 701 and Form S–8 require the issuer to make specific disclosures. However, depending on the circumstances, compensatory transactions also may be conducted under the Securities Act Section 4(a)(2) exemption from registration or under a ‘‘no sale’’ theory,2 which would not require specific disclosures. Equity compensation can be an important component of the employment relationship. Using equity for compensation can align the incentives of employees with the success of the enterprise, facilitate 1 See, e.g., Release No. 33–3469–X (Apr. 10, 1953) [18 FR 2182 (Apr. 17, 1953)] and Registration of Securities Offered Pursuant to Employees Stock Purchase Plans, Release No. 33–3480 (Jun. 16, 1953) [18 FR 3688 (Jun. 27, 1953)], each observing that the investment decision to be made by the employee is of a different character than when securities are offered for the purpose of raising capital. 2 See Changes to Exchange Act Registration Requirements to Implement Title V and Title VI of the JOBS Act, Release No. 33–10075 (May 3, 2016) [81 FR 28689 (May 10, 2016)] at n. 82, stating ‘‘The ‘‘no sale’’ theory relates to the issuance of compensatory grants made by employers to broad groups of employees pursuant to broad-based stock bonus plans without Securities Act registration under the theory that the awards are not an offer or sale of securities under Section 2(a)(3) of the Securities Act [15 U.S.C. 77b(a)(3)].’’ Where securities are awarded to employees at no direct cost through broad based bonus plans, the staff has taken the position generally that there has been no sale since employees do not individually bargain to contribute cash or other tangible or definable consideration to such plans. Where securities are awarded to or acquired by employees pursuant to individual employment arrangements, however the staff has expressed the view that such arrangements involve separately bargained consideration, and a sale of the securities has occurred.

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 D airspace, Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and 
establishing Class E surface area airspace at Wheeler AAF, Honolulu, 
HI.
    Class D airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 
3,300 feet MSL would be modified to within a 2.6-mile radius of Wheeler 
AAF, (formerly Wheeler AFB), then extend to a 3.7-mile radius from the 
southeast to the southwest, adjoining the boundary of Restricted Area 
R-3109 to the west, excluding that airspace below 1,800 feet MSL beyond 
3.3 miles from the airport from the 89[deg] bearing clockwise to the 
218[deg] bearing from the airport.
    Additionally, an editorial change would be made to the Class D 
airspace legal description removing the words ``Airport/Facility 
Directory''. An editorial change also would be made removing the city 
associated with the airport name in the airspace designation to comply 
with a recent change to FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling 
Airspace Matters.
    Class E surface area airspace would be established to be coincident 
with the lateral dimensions of the Class D airspace, and would be 
effective continuously to provide protection to instrument procedures.
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet would be modified 
to that airspace within a 4.2-mile radius of Wheeler AAF. The Koko Head 
VORTAC navigation aid would be removed, as it is no longer needed to 
describe the boundary.
    Additionally, this action proposes to update the airport name from 
Wheeler AFB to Wheeler AAF, and the geographic coordinates for the 
associated Class D and Class E airspace areas to match the FAA's

    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 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 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.
