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 by amending the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Ashland Regional Airport, 
Ashland, KY, by adding an extension 2 miles either side of the 098[deg] 
bearing from the airport extending from the 6.5-mile radius to 10.4 
miles east of the airport; adding an extension 2 miles either side of 
the 278[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 6.5-mile 
radius to 10.5 miles west of the airport; removing the exclusionary 
language, as it is no longer required; and would update the name of the 
Ashland Regional Airport (formerly Ashland-Boyd County Airport) to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the 
amendment of the instrument procedures at the airport, which require 
additional airspace to comply with FAA Order, 7400.2M, Procedures for 
Handling Airspace.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 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.
