ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: This action proposes to amend the Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Jackson County Airport-Reynolds Field, Jackson, MI, and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lakeview Airport-Griffith Field, Lakeview, MI. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Jackson and Muskegon VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aids, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures these airports, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The geographic coordinates of the airports and the name of Jackson County Airport-Reynolds Field would also be updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. SUMMARY: Comments must be received on or before June 29, 2020.

Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Jackson and 
Lakeview, MI

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend the Class D airspace and Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Jackson 
County Airport-Reynolds Field, Jackson, MI, and the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Lakeview Airport-
Griffith Field, Lakeview, MI. The FAA is proposing this action as the 
result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Jackson 
and Muskegon VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aids, which 
provided navigation information for the instrument procedures these 
airports, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. 
The geographic coordinates of the airports and the name of Jackson 
County Airport-Reynolds Field would also be updated to coincide with 
the FAA's aeronautical database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the 
safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at 
these airports.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by:
    Amending the Class D airspace at Jackson County Airport-Reynolds 
Field, Jackson, MI, by updating the geographic coordinates of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database; and replacing 
the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with ``Chart 
Supplement'';
    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface within a 6.5-mile (decreased from a 7-mile) radius of 
Jackson County Airport-Reynolds Field (previously the Jackson VOR/DME); 
updating the name and geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database; and removing the Jackson VOR/DME 
from the airspace legal description;
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 6.3-mile radius (decreased from a 7.6-mile 
radius) of Lakeview Airport-Griffith Field, Lakeview, MI; and updating 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of airspace reviews caused by the 
decommissioning of the Jackson and Muskegon VORs, which provided 
navigation information for the instrument procedures these airports, as 
part of the VOR MON Program.
    Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000 
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.
    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.
