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 would amend Class D and Class E airspace to support IFR operations at Buchanan Field, Concord, CA.

An informal docket may also be examined during normal business hours at the Northwest Mountain Regional Office of the Federal Aviation Administration, Air Traffic Organization, Western Service Center, Operations Support Group, 2200 S 216th Street, Des Moines, WA 98198. 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 D airspace at Buchanan Field extending upward from the surface to and including 2,500 feet MSL within a 2.6mile radius of the airport from the 205° bearing from the airport clockwise to the E:\FR\FM\22OCP1.SGM 22OCP1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 22, 2019 / Proposed Rules 314° bearing, thence extending to a 4.1mile radius of Buchanan Field from the 314° bearing clockwise to the 205° bearing from the airport to contain instrument approach procedures as aircraft descend through 1,000 feet AGL. This Class D airspace area is effective during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously published in the Chart Supplement. Additionally, this action proposes to establish Class E5 airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 4.1-mile radius of Buchanan Field and within 2.5 miles each side of the 009° bearing from the airport extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 11 miles north of Buchanan Field and within 2.5 miles each side of the 023° bearing from the airport extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 11 miles northeast of the airport to contain instrument approach procedures as aircraft descend through 1,500 feet AGL. Further, this action proposes to remove the Concord VOR/DME and the associated extensions to simplify how the airspace is described. Lastly, this action proposes a minor editorial amendment to remove the city listed before the airport name in the legal description header information to comply with airspace policy guidance. Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.11D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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 D and Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:25 Oct 21, 2019 Jkt 250001 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.

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

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by amending Class D airspace at Buchanan 
Field extending upward from the surface to and including 2,500 feet MSL 
within a 2.6-mile radius of the airport from the 205[deg] bearing from 
the airport clockwise to the

[[Page 56391]]

314[deg] bearing, thence extending to a 4.1-mile radius of Buchanan 
Field from the 314[deg] bearing clockwise to the 205[deg] bearing from 
the airport to contain instrument approach procedures as aircraft 
descend through 1,000 feet AGL. This Class D airspace area is effective 
during the specific dates and times established in advance by a Notice 
to Airmen. The effective date and time will thereafter be continuously 
published in the Chart Supplement.
    Additionally, this action proposes to establish Class E5 airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 4.1-mile 
radius of Buchanan Field and within 2.5 miles each side of the 009[deg] 
bearing from the airport extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 11 miles 
north of Buchanan Field and within 2.5 miles each side of the 023[deg] 
bearing from the airport extending from the 4.1-mile radius to 11 miles 
northeast of the airport to contain instrument approach procedures as 
aircraft descend through 1,500 feet AGL.
    Further, this action proposes to remove the Concord VOR/DME and the 
associated extensions to simplify how the airspace is described.
    Lastly, this action proposes a minor editorial amendment to remove 
the city listed before the airport name in the legal description header 
information to comply with airspace policy guidance.
    Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 of 
FAA Order 7400.11D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 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 D and Class E airspace designations listed in this 
document will be published subsequently in the Order.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

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.
