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 the Class E airspace area designated as a surface area at Bowling Green-Warren County Regional Airport, Bowling Green, KY, by removing the Bowling Green VORTAC and associated extension from the airspace legal description; and adding an extension within 1 mile each side of the 030° bearing from the airport extending from PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 65037 the 4.2-mile radius to 4.5 miles north of the airport; Amending the Class E airspace area designated as a surface area at Lake Cumberland Regional Airport, Somerset, KY, by removing the Bowling Green VORTAC from the airspace legal description; adding an extension within 1 mile each side of the 043° bearing from the airport extending from the 4mile radius to 4.8 miles northeast of the airport; and updating the name and geographic coordinates of Lake Cumberland Regional Airport (previously Somerset—Pulaski County—J.T. Wilson Field Airport) to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (increased from a 6.6-mile radius) of Bowling Green-Warren County Regional Airport; and removing the Bowling Green VORTAC and associated extension from the airspace legal description; And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.5-mile radius (decreased from an 8.6-mile radius) of Lake Cumberland Regional Airport; removing the Cumberland River NDB and associated extension as they are no longer required; adding an extension 8 miles south and 3.8 miles north of the 228° bearing from the Lake Cumberland Regional: RWY 05–LOC extending from the 6.5-mile radius of the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport to 10 miles southwest of the Lake Cumberland Regional: RWY 05–LOC; and updating the name and geographic coordinates of the Lake Cumberland Regional Airport (previously Somerset— Pulaski County—J.T. Wilson Field Airport) to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Bowling Green VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 6005, respectively, 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. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. E:\FR\FM\26NOP1.SGM 26NOP1 65038 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 26, 2019 / Proposed Rules 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. * The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

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 the Class E airspace area designated as a surface area at 
Bowling Green-Warren County Regional Airport, Bowling Green, KY, by 
removing the Bowling Green VORTAC and associated extension from the 
airspace legal description; and adding an extension within 1 mile each 
side of the 030[deg] bearing from the airport extending from the 4.2-
mile radius to 4.5 miles north of the airport;
    Amending the Class E airspace area designated as a surface area at 
Lake Cumberland Regional Airport, Somerset, KY, by removing the Bowling 
Green VORTAC from the airspace legal description; adding an extension 
within 1 mile each side of the 043[deg] bearing from the airport 
extending from the 4-mile radius to 4.8 miles northeast of the airport; 
and updating the name and geographic coordinates of Lake Cumberland 
Regional Airport (previously Somerset--Pulaski County--J.T. Wilson 
Field Airport) to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface to within a 6.7-mile radius (increased from a 6.6-mile 
radius) of Bowling Green-Warren County Regional Airport; and removing 
the Bowling Green VORTAC and associated extension from the airspace 
legal description;
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface to within a 6.5-mile radius (decreased from an 8.6-
mile radius) of Lake Cumberland Regional Airport; removing the 
Cumberland River NDB and associated extension as they are no longer 
required; adding an extension 8 miles south and 3.8 miles north of the 
228[deg] bearing from the Lake Cumberland Regional: RWY 05-LOC 
extending from the 6.5-mile radius of the Lake Cumberland Regional 
Airport to 10 miles southwest of the Lake Cumberland Regional: RWY 05-
LOC; and updating the name and geographic coordinates of the Lake 
Cumberland Regional Airport (previously Somerset--Pulaski County--J.T. 
Wilson Field Airport) to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Bowling Green VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of 
the VOR MON Program.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and

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.
