The purpose of this route is to expedite the handling of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) overflight aircraft transitioning through busy terminal airspace. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace in the Jacksonville, FL, terminal area. DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, June 8, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On January 9, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish route T–210 in the Jacksonville, FL, terminal area (71 FR 1397). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on this proposal to the FAA. One comment was received in response to the proposal. Analysis of Comment The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) wrote in support of the proposal. AOPA noted that the NPRM did not list a defined altitude for T–210 and recommended that the route be available at multiple altitudes to allow users to take full advantage of the benefits of RITTR. AOPA also asked the FAA to incorporate guidance into FAA publications to allow pilots operating under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) to use the route when transitioning through terminal airspace. The FAA confirms that the route will be available at various altitudes in the low altitude structure within the airspace assigned to Jacksonville Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON). These altitudes will vary depending on factors such as direction of flight, filed altitude, air traffic volume, etc. Altitudes will be assigned by either Jacksonville TRACON or Jacksonville Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). The FAA does not plan to issue guidance regarding VFR use of RITTRs at this time. RITTRs were developed specifically to provide routing for Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)-equipped aircraft that are operating on an IFR flight plan, to PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 15027 transition through busy terminal areas. The fixes/waypoints used to define the routes do not have associated visual landmarks for reference by VFR pilots when navigating through the area. Pilots of suitably equipped VFR aircraft could utilize the route for navigation, in compliance with all applicable VFR regulations. This is similar to current practice where a pilot operating in accordance with VFR may use a Very High Frequency Omni-directional Range Federal airway for navigation. RITTRs are low altitude RNAV routes and are published under Area Navigation Routes in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2006 and effective September 15, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RITTR route listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing route T–210 in the Jacksonville, FL, terminal area. The route may be used by GNSS-equipped aircraft that are capable of filing flight plan equipment code ‘‘/G.’’ The route will be depicted in blue on the appropriate IFR en route low altitude charts. The FAA is taking this action to enhance safety and the flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace by en route IFR aircraft transitioning through the Jacksonville, FL, terminal area. In the NPRM, the point BRADO was erroneously identified as a ‘‘WP’’ (waypoint). This point is currently a charted navigation fix, therefore, an editorial change is being made in this rule to replace ‘‘WP’’ with ‘‘Fix’’ in the description of BRADO. With the exception of this change, this amendment is the same as that proposed in the notice. 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. Therefore, this regulation: (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, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial E:\FR\FM\27MRR1.SGM 27MRR1 15028 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 58 / Monday, March 27, 2006 / Rules and Regulations number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On January 9, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish route T-210 in the 
Jacksonville, FL, terminal area (71 FR 1397). Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting 
written comments on this proposal to the FAA. One comment was received 
in response to the proposal.

Analysis of Comment

    The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) wrote in support 
of the proposal. AOPA noted that the NPRM did not list a defined 
altitude for T-210 and recommended that the route be available at 
multiple altitudes to allow users to take full advantage of the 
benefits of RITTR. AOPA also asked the FAA to incorporate guidance into 
FAA publications to allow pilots operating under Visual Flight Rules 
(VFR) to use the route when transitioning through terminal airspace.
    The FAA confirms that the route will be available at various 
altitudes in the low altitude structure within the airspace assigned to 
Jacksonville Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON). These altitudes 
will vary depending on factors such as direction of flight, filed 
altitude, air traffic volume, etc. Altitudes will be assigned by either 
Jacksonville TRACON or Jacksonville Air Route Traffic Control Center 
(ARTCC).
    The FAA does not plan to issue guidance regarding VFR use of RITTRs 
at this time. RITTRs were developed specifically to provide routing for 
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)-equipped aircraft that are 
operating on an IFR flight plan, to transition through busy terminal 
areas. The fixes/waypoints used to define the routes do not have 
associated visual landmarks for reference by VFR pilots when navigating 
through the area. Pilots of suitably equipped VFR aircraft could 
utilize the route for navigation, in compliance with all applicable VFR 
regulations. This is similar to current practice where a pilot 
operating in accordance with VFR may use a Very High Frequency Omni-
directional Range Federal airway for navigation.
    RITTRs are low altitude RNAV routes and are published under Area 
Navigation Routes in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.9N dated 
September 1, 2006 and effective September 15, 2006, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RITTR route listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the order.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by establishing route T-210 in the Jacksonville, FL, terminal 
area. The route may be used by GNSS-equipped aircraft that are capable 
of filing flight plan equipment code ``/G.'' The route will be depicted 
in blue on the appropriate IFR en route low altitude charts. The FAA is 
taking this action to enhance safety and the flexible and efficient use 
of the navigable airspace by en route IFR aircraft transitioning 
through the Jacksonville, FL, terminal area.
    In the NPRM, the point BRADO was erroneously identified as a ``WP'' 
(waypoint). This point is currently a charted navigation fix, 
therefore, an editorial change is being made in this rule to replace 
``WP'' with ``Fix'' in the description of BRADO. With the exception of 
this change, this amendment is the same as that proposed in the notice.
    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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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, will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial
