FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. 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 proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:30 Jul 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 The Chester Catawba Regional Airport, Chester, SC radius would increase to 9.0 miles, (previously 7.0 miles). In addition, this action would update the airport’s name to Chester Catawba Regional Airport, (previously Chester Municipal Airport). The radius of the Lancaster CountyMcWhirter Field Airport, Lancaster, SC, would increase to 8.3 miles, (previously 7.0 miles) and within 4.0 miles each side of the 059° bearing from the airport extending from the 8.3-mile radius to 10.9 miles northeast of the airport. This action would also update the geographical coordinates of the Lancaster County-McWhirter Field Airport to coincide with the FAA’s database. The radius of the JAARS-Townsend Airport, Waxhaw, NC, would increase to 9.3 miles, (previously 7 miles). In addition, this action would update the name to JAARS-Townsend Airport, (previously Waxhaw, JAARS-Townsend Airport). The radius of the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Regional Airport, Lincolnton, NC would increase to 8.5 miles, (previously 6.4 miles). In addition, this action would update the airport name to Lincolnton-Lincoln County Regional Airport, (previously Lincolnton, Lincoln County Airport). This action would also update the geographical coordinates of the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Regional Airport to coincide with the FAA’s database. Class E 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 7400.11E, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective 
September 15, 2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. 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 proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at:
    The Chester Catawba Regional Airport, Chester, SC radius would 
increase to 9.0 miles, (previously 7.0 miles). In addition, this action 
would update the airport's name to Chester Catawba Regional Airport, 
(previously Chester Municipal Airport).
    The radius of the Lancaster County-McWhirter Field Airport, 
Lancaster, SC, would increase to 8.3 miles, (previously 7.0 miles) and 
within 4.0 miles each side of the 059[deg] bearing from the airport 
extending from the 8.3-mile radius to 10.9 miles northeast of the 
airport. This action would also update the geographical coordinates of 
the Lancaster County-McWhirter Field Airport to coincide with the FAA's 
database.
    The radius of the JAARS-Townsend Airport, Waxhaw, NC, would 
increase to 9.3 miles, (previously 7 miles). In addition, this action 
would update the name to JAARS-Townsend Airport, (previously Waxhaw, 
JAARS-Townsend Airport).
    The radius of the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Regional Airport, 
Lincolnton, NC would increase to 8.5 miles, (previously 6.4 miles). In 
addition, this action would update the airport name to Lincolnton-
Lincoln County Regional Airport, (previously Lincolnton, Lincoln County 
Airport). This action would also update the geographical coordinates of 
the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Regional Airport to coincide with the 
FAA's database.
    Class E 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 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
