This action also changes the airport name to Lynchburg Regional Airport-Preston Glenn Field.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 makes a clerical correction removing the NOTAM part-time status 
from the Class E airspace area designated as an extension at Lynchburg 
Regional Airport-Preston Glenn Field, Lynchburg, VA.

History

    The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E 
airspace area designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at 
Lynchburg Regional Airport-Preston Glenn Field Airport, Lynchburg, VA, 
was incorrectly identified as part time. This action also changes the 
airport name to Lynchburg Regional Airport-Preston Glenn Field.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6004 of 
FAA Order 7400.11B dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends 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 Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by removing the NOTAM part-time status from the Class E 
airspace area designated as an extension to a Class D airspace at 
Lynchburg Regional Airport-Preston Glenn Field Airport, Lynchburg, VA. 
The airport name also is changed from Lynchburg Regional-Preston Glenn 
Field to Lynchburg Regional Airport-Preston Glenn Field.
    This is an administrative change and does not affect the 
boundaries, or

[[Page 45820]]

operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public 
procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the 
criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
