SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Authority for This Rulemaking
The FAA’s authority to issue rules
regarding aviation safety is found in
Title 49 of the United States Code.
Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the
authority of the FAA Administrator.
Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs,
describes in more detail the scope of the
agency’s authority. 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 the Class E airspace extending
upward from 700 feet above the surface
at Grove Municipal Airport, Grove, OK,
and remove the Class E airspace
extending upward from 700 feet above
the surface at Grove General Hospital
Heliport, Grove, OK, to support
instrument flight rule operations at this
airport.

Availability and Summary of
Documents for Incorporation by
Reference
This document proposes to amend
FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace
Designations and Reporting Points,
dated August 10, 2021, and effective
September 15, 2021. FAA Order JO
7400.11F is publicly available as listed
in the
ADDRESSES
section of this
document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 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 amending the Class
E airspace extending upward from 700
feet above the surface to within a 6.5-
mile (increased from a 6.3-mile) radius
of Grove Municipal Airport, Grove, OK;
removing the extensions south and
north of Grove Municipal Airport from
the airspace legal description as they are
no longer needed; removing the Grove
General Hospital Heliport, Grove, OK,
and the associated airspace as the
instrument procedures to the heliport
have been cancelled and the airspace is
no longer required; and updating the
geographic coordinates of the airport to
coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical
database.
This action is the result of an airspace
review conducted as part of the
decommissioning of the Neosho VOR,
which provided navigation information
for the instrument procedures at this
airport, as part of the VOR MON
Program.
Class E airspace designations are
published in paragraph 6005 of FAA
Order JO 7400.11F, dated August 10,
2021, and effective September 15, 2021,
which is incorporated by reference in 14
CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace
designations listed in this document
will be published subsequently in FAA
Order JO 7400.11.
FAA Order JO 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.
