Proposed Establishment of Low Altitude Area Navigation Route T-209; GA, 28630-28631 [E7-9773]

Download as PDF 28630 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 98 / Tuesday, May 22, 2007 / Proposed Rules under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle 1, 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 1, Section 40103, Sovereignty and use of airspace. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it proposes to create Class E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft executing instrument procedures at Ruby Airport and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, CLASS B, CLASS C, CLASS D, AND CLASS E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIRWAYS; ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 to establish a low altitude RNAV route, designated T-
209, in the vicinity of Augusta, GA. The route would extend between the 
Colliers, SC, very high frequency omnidirectional range/tactical air 
navigation (VORTAC) aid and the EHEJO, GA, navigation fix (located on 
Federal airway V-154). T-209 would provide a more direct route for 
north and southbound traffic and would also establish a published route 
that ensures clearance from the Bulldog A MOA to assist aircraft 
navigating around the MOA.
    This route would enhance the safe and efficient use of the 
navigable airspace for north and southbound IFR aircraft in the 
vicinity of Augusta, GA.
    Low altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA 
Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006 and effective September 15, 
2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The low 
altitude RNAV route listed in this document would be published 
subsequently in the Order.
    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. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (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 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
