Per the FAA Those that have Surface E extensions, an authorization is no longer required in some instances.

Ref 14 CFR 107.41 Class E Surface Area Authorizations:
.....

Therefore, effective immediately, we only need to provide authorizations for Class E airspace if the airport itself is a Class E airport.

If you're seeking to fly in a Class E extension to Class D, C and E airspace you do not need an airspace authorization so long as the airport is not in Class E airspace.


As soon as I get my hands on the actual document I'll link to it here.

Contact your FSDO to get this in writing to CYA.

At first glance I was excited that maybe class e surface no longer needed authorization. But the class e ramps are a start!
