ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: This action proposes to remove Class E airspace area designated as an extension to a Class D surface area for Cecil Airport (previously Cecil Field), Jacksonville, FL, as the Cecil very high frequency omnidirectional range (VOR) has been decommissioned, and the VOR approach cancelled. This action would also amend Class D and E airspace by updating the following airport names: Jacksonville NAS (Towers Field) (previously Jacksonville NAS); Herlong Recreational Airport (formerly Herlong Airport); and, Jacksonville Executive Airport at Craig (previously Craig Municipal Airport). Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area. Also, this action would update the geographic coordinates of Cecil Airport, Jacksonville NAS (Towers Field), Jacksonville International Airport, Mayport NAS, and Whitehouse NOLF. This action also would make an editorial change replacing Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal descriptions of associated Class D airspace.

The FAA also proposed to amend Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface by recognizing the name changes of Jacksonville NAS (Towers Field), (previously Jacksonville NAS), and Herlong Recreational Airport, (previously Herlong Airport), and Jacksonville Executive Airport at Craig, (previously Craig Municipal Airport), Jacksonville, FL.

Class D airspace designations, Class E airspace areas designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area, and Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface are published in Paragraphs 5000, 6004, 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.

Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:14 Dec 13, 2019 Jkt 250001 on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Proposed Removal of Class E Airspace, and Proposed Amendment of 
Class D and Class E Airspace; Jacksonville, FL

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to remove Class E airspace area 
designated as an extension to a Class D surface area for Cecil Airport 
(previously Cecil Field), Jacksonville, FL, as the Cecil very high 
frequency omnidirectional range (VOR) has been decommissioned, and the 
VOR approach cancelled. This action would also amend Class D and E 
airspace by updating the following airport names: Jacksonville NAS 
(Towers Field) (previously Jacksonville NAS); Herlong Recreational 
Airport (formerly Herlong Airport); and, Jacksonville Executive Airport 
at Craig (previously Craig Municipal Airport). Controlled airspace is 
necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules 
(IFR) operations in the area. Also, this action would update the 
geographic coordinates of Cecil Airport, Jacksonville NAS (Towers 
Field), Jacksonville International Airport, Mayport NAS, and Whitehouse 
NOLF. This action also would make an editorial change replacing 
Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal 
descriptions of associated Class D airspace.

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

[[Page 68384]]

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 proposes an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to remove Class E surface airspace 
designated as an extension to a Class D surface area at Cecil Airport 
due to the decommissioning of the Cecil VOR. The FAA also proposed to 
amend Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet or more above the surface by recognizing the name changes of 
Jacksonville NAS (Towers Field), (previously Jacksonville NAS), and 
Herlong Recreational Airport, (previously Herlong Airport), and 
Jacksonville Executive Airport at Craig, (previously Craig Municipal 
Airport), Jacksonville, FL. Also, the geographic coordinates of these 
airports would be adjusted to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical 
database. In addition, the FAA proposes to replace the outdated term 
Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the 
associated Class D airspace legal descriptions for these airports.
    Class D airspace designations, Class E airspace areas designated as 
an extension to a Class D or E surface area, and Class E airspace areas 
extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface are published 
in Paragraphs 5000, 6004, 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 D and E airspace 
designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.
