FAA Order 7400.11E 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 14 CFR part 71 by modifying the Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Delano Municipal Airport, Delano, CA. The airspace should be modified to properly contain IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface, and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above the surface. To ensure proper containment of IFR aircraft, this action proposes to reduce the circular radius of E:\FR\FM\08MRP1.SGM 08MRP1 13250 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 43 / Monday, March 8, 2021 / Proposed Rules the airport from six and a half miles to four miles. The 6.5-mile radius is no longer needed to contain IFR aircraft performing a circling maneuver near the airport. It also proposes to add an airspace area southeast of the airport to contain IFR aircraft performing a procedure turn maneuver for the VOR RWY 32 approach. Additionally, an airspace area north of the airport should be added to properly contain IFR departures to 1,200 feet above the surface. This action also proposes to update the airport’s geographical coordinates to match the FAA database. The coordinates should read lat. 35°44′44″ N, long. 119°14′11″ W. Class E5 airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, 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. 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. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS Environmental Review 1.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective 
September 15, 2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed

reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by modifying 
the Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, 
at Delano Municipal Airport, Delano, CA. The airspace should be 
modified to properly contain IFR departures until reaching 1,200 feet 
above the surface, and IFR arrivals descending below 1,500 feet above 
the surface. To ensure proper containment of IFR aircraft, this action 
proposes to reduce the circular radius of

[[Page 13250]]

the airport from six and a half miles to four miles. The 6.5-mile 
radius is no longer needed to contain IFR aircraft performing a 
circling maneuver near the airport. It also proposes to add an airspace 
area southeast of the airport to contain IFR aircraft performing a 
procedure turn maneuver for the VOR RWY 32 approach. Additionally, an 
airspace area north of the airport should be added to properly contain 
IFR departures to 1,200 feet above the surface.
    This action also proposes to update the airport's geographical 
coordinates to match the FAA database. The coordinates should read lat. 
35[deg]44'44'' N, long. 119[deg]14'11'' W.
    Class E5 airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020, 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.

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.
