ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Redding Municipal Airport, Redding CA. This action also proposes to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface as this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. Additionally, this action proposes to update the geographic coordinates of the airport to match the FAA’s database. Lastly, this action proposes to remove the Redding VOR/DME and the Lassen NDB and the extensions associated with those navigational aids from the legal description of the airspace. Removing the VOR/DME and NDB simplifies the airspace’s legal description. These changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D 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 E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area within 2.3 miles west and 2.5 miles east of the 193° bearing from the Redding Municipal Airport, extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 7.3 miles south of the airport. This action also proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.8-mile radius of the airport and within 1.1 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:35 Sep 30, 2019 Jkt 250001 miles west and 1 mile east of the 360° bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.8 mile radius to 12.5 miles north of the airport and within 8.1 miles west and 4 miles east of the 193° bearing extending from the airport to 16 miles south of the Redding Municipal Airport. Additionally, this action proposes to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface as this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. Lastly, this action proposes to remove the Redding VOR/DME and the Lassen NDB and the extensions associated with those navigational aids from the legal description of the airspace. Removing the VOR/DME and NDB simplifies the airspace’s legal description. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6004 and 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, 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.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Redding, CA

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E airspace designated as 
an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Redding Municipal 
Airport, Redding CA. This action also proposes to remove Class E 
airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface as this 
airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley en route airspace 
and duplication is not necessary. Additionally, this action proposes to 
update the geographic coordinates of the airport to match the FAA's 
database. Lastly, this action proposes to remove the Redding VOR/DME 
and the Lassen NDB and the extensions associated with those 
navigational aids from the legal description of the airspace. Removing 
the VOR/DME and NDB simplifies the airspace's legal description. These 
changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective 
September 15, 2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D 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 E airspace designated as 
an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area within 2.3 miles west 
and 2.5 miles east of the 193[deg] bearing from the Redding Municipal 
Airport, extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 7.3 miles 
south of the airport. This action also proposes to amend the Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.8-
mile radius of the airport and within 1.1 miles west and 1 mile east of 
the 360[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 6.8 mile 
radius to 12.5 miles north of the airport and within 8.1 miles west and 
4 miles east of the 193[deg] bearing extending from the airport to 16 
miles south of the Redding Municipal Airport. Additionally, this action 
proposes to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet 
above the surface as this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue 
Valley en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. Lastly, this 
action proposes to remove the Redding VOR/DME and the Lassen NDB and 
the extensions associated with those navigational aids from the legal 
description of the airspace. Removing the VOR/DME and NDB simplifies 
the airspace's legal description.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6004 and 
6005 of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective 
September 15, 2019, 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.
