This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. 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 E airspace in Jacksonville NAS, FL and Mayport, FL, to support IFR operations in the area. Comments Invited Interested persons are invited to comment on this proposed rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal.

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 E:\FR\FM\13FEP1.SGM 13FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 30 / Thursday, February 13, 2020 / Proposed Rules CFR) part 71 to amend Class D airspace at Jacksonville NAS (Towers Field), Jacksonville NAS, FL, by updating the name and geographical coordinates of the airport, and the name of Herlong Recreational Airport. Also, the geographic coordinates of Mayport NAS, Mayport, FL, would be updated under Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area, as well as the name and geographic coordinates of Jacksonville Executive Airport at Craig. In addition, the FAA proposes to replace the outdated term Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the associated Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area in the legal descriptions for Mayport NAS, Mayport, FL. Class D airspace designations, and Class E airspace areas designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area are published in Paragraphs 5000, and 6004, 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. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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.

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 proposes an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14

[[Page 8213]]

CFR) part 71 to amend Class D airspace at Jacksonville NAS (Towers 
Field), Jacksonville NAS, FL, by updating the name and geographical 
coordinates of the airport, and the name of Herlong Recreational 
Airport. Also, the geographic coordinates of Mayport NAS, Mayport, FL, 
would be updated under Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace 
designated as an extension to a Class D surface area, as well as the 
name and geographic coordinates of Jacksonville Executive Airport at 
Craig. In addition, the FAA proposes to replace the outdated term 
Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the 
associated Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace designated as 
an extension to a Class D surface area in the legal descriptions for 
Mayport NAS, Mayport, FL.
    Class D airspace designations, and Class E airspace areas 
designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area are published 
in Paragraphs 5000, and 6004, 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.
    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 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.
