Also, this action proposes to amend Class D airspace by updating the airport’s name and geographic coordinates, as well as replacing the outdated term ‘Airport/Facility Directory’ with ‘Chart Supplement’. Additionally, the geographic coordinates of the airport and Wiregrass VORTAC would be adjusted in the associated Class E airspace to match the FAA’s aeronautical database; as well as removing the part-time status of the airspace for Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. SUMMARY: Comments must be received on or before November 5, 2018.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective 
September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C 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 amending the Class D airspace by updating 
for the location in the header of the airspace legal description to 
Detroit, MI (previously Detroit City Airport, MI), at Coleman A. Young 
Municipal Airport (formerly Detroit City Airport), Detroit, MI, to 
comply with FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace 
Matters. The name and geographic coordinates of the airport would also 
be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of 
FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 
2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D 
airspace designation 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.
