The Proposal This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), Part 71 by adding additional Class E airspace for SIAPs operations at Gogebic Iron County Airport, Ironwood, MI. The area would be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts. Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9S, dated October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation 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. It, therefore, (1) Is not a ‘‘significant VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:08 Feb 11, 2009 Jkt 217001 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 number of small entities 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 U.S. 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 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 add additional controlled airspace at Gogebic Iron County Airport, Ironwood, MI.

Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, to request a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. Background The FAA is establishing RNAV routes focusing on developing and implementing improvements in navigation structure and operating methods to allow more flexible and efficient en route operations in the National Airspace System. RNAV routes provide greater freedom to properly equipped users and achieves the economic benefits of flying userselected non-restrictive routings. RNAV routes will be identified by the letter prefix ‘‘Q’’ for routes flight level (FL) 180 and above, and ‘‘T’’ for routes below FL 180 followed by a number consisting of one to three digits. This specific effort focuses on developing and implementing improvements in navigation structure for more efficient en route operations in the Alaska airspace environment. To help accomplish this goal, the FAA asked for user feedback to help place routing in the most efficient manner. As a result, twelve of the charted thirty three Alaskan T routes are proposed to be revised. Nine new T routes are proposed to be established, along with fourteen new Q routes. Additionally, four T routes are proposed to be removed. Final rules for Area Navigation routes will contain a general route outline and PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 7013 no longer contain the individual coordinates for each navigational aid, waypoint or fix. The coordinates will be published in the National Flight Data Digest and subsequently in FAA Order 7350.8 Location Identifiers. Related Rulemaking On April 8, 2003, the FAA published the Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes, and Reporting Points rule in the Federal Register (68 FR 16943). This rule adopted certain amendments proposed in Notice No. 02–20, Area Navigation (RNAV) and Miscellaneous Amendments. The rule revised and adopted several definitions in FAA regulations, including Air Traffic Service Routes, to be in concert with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) definitions; and reorganized the structure of FAA regulations concerning the designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas; airways; routes; and reporting points. The purpose of the rule was to facilitate the establishment of RNAV routes in the NAS for use by aircraft with advanced navigation system capabilities. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish fourteen high altitude Area Navigation (RNAV) routes, and nine low altitude RNAV routes, in the State of Alaska. Additionally, this action proposes to revise one high altitude route, fourteen low altitude routes, and remove four existing ‘‘T’’ routes that are no longer required. These routes are being proposed to enhance safety, and to facilitate the more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace for en route instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the state of Alaska. This proposal will improve operator efficiency, access and safety, while incrementally reducing dependency on ground based navigation facilities. A graphical representation of this proposal is on the web (downloadable PDF file) at: http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/ headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/ systemops/fs/alaskan/notices/ RNAV_Routes/. These areas would be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. The High Altitude RNAV Routes are published in paragraph 2006, and the Low Altitude RNAV Routes are published in paragraph 6011 in FAA Order 7400.9S, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008, E:\FR\FM\12FEP1.SGM 12FEP1 7014 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 28 / Thursday, February 12, 2009 / Proposed Rules which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The airspace designations 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. 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 the 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 proposes to create Class A and E airspace sufficient in size to contain aircraft using the described Federal Airways within the State of Alaska and represents the FAA’s continuing effort to safely and efficiently use the navigable airspace. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

History The special use airspace at the Avon Park Air Force Range includes restricted areas and MOAs. The restricted areas support a variety of hazardous activities including both ground-based and airdelivered weapons employment. Restricted areas are regulatory airspace areas that are designated under Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 rulemaking procedures. Restricted areas are designated to contain activities that may present a hazard to aircraft. No person may operate an aircraft within a restricted area without the advance permission of the using or controlling agency. The APAFR MOAs are used primarily as holding and maneuvering areas for aircraft operating in the restricted areas. MOAs are nonregulatory airspace areas that are established administratively and published in the National Flight Data Digest (NFDD). MOAs are established to separate or segregate nonhazardous military flight activities from aircraft operating in accordance with instrument flight rules (IFR), and to advise pilots flying under visual flight rules (VFR) where these activities are conducted. IFR aircraft may be routed through an active MOA only when air traffic control can provide approved separation from the MOA activity. VFR pilots are not restricted from flying in an active MOA, but are advised to exercise caution while doing so. Normally, MOA proposals are not published in a NPRM but, instead, are advertised for public comment through a nonrule circular distributed by the FAA Service Center office to aviation interests in the affected area. When a nonrulemaking action is an integral part of a rulemaking action, FAA procedures allow for the nonrulemaking proposal to be included in the NPRM. Because the MOAs are an integral part of the Avon Park Range, the proposed changes are being described in this NPRM. Comments on the proposed MOA changes may also be submitted as E:\FR\FM\12FEP1.SGM 12FEP1

Background

    The FAA is establishing RNAV routes focusing on developing and 
implementing improvements in navigation structure and operating methods 
to allow more flexible and efficient en route operations in the 
National Airspace System. RNAV routes provide greater freedom to 
properly equipped users and achieves the economic benefits of flying 
user-selected non-restrictive routings. RNAV routes will be identified 
by the letter prefix ``Q'' for routes flight level (FL) 180 and above, 
and ``T'' for routes below FL 180 followed by a number consisting of 
one to three digits. This specific effort focuses on developing and 
implementing improvements in navigation structure for more efficient en 
route operations in the Alaska airspace environment. To help accomplish 
this goal, the FAA asked for user feedback to help place routing in the 
most efficient manner. As a result, twelve of the charted thirty three 
Alaskan T routes are proposed to be revised. Nine new T routes are 
proposed to be established, along with fourteen new Q routes. 
Additionally, four T routes are proposed to be removed. Final rules for 
Area Navigation routes will contain a general route outline and no 
longer contain the individual coordinates for each navigational aid, 
waypoint or fix. The coordinates will be published in the National 
Flight Data Digest and subsequently in FAA Order 7350.8 Location 
Identifiers.

Related Rulemaking

    On April 8, 2003, the FAA published the Designation of Class A, B, 
C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes, and Reporting 
Points rule in the Federal Register (68 FR 16943). This rule adopted 
certain amendments proposed in Notice No. 02-20, Area Navigation (RNAV) 
and Miscellaneous Amendments. The rule revised and adopted several 
definitions in FAA regulations, including Air Traffic Service Routes, 
to be in concert with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) 
definitions; and reorganized the structure of FAA regulations 
concerning the designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas; 
airways; routes; and reporting points. The purpose of the rule was to 
facilitate the establishment of RNAV routes in the NAS for use by 
aircraft with advanced navigation system capabilities.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish fourteen high altitude Area 
Navigation (RNAV) routes, and nine low altitude RNAV routes, in the 
State of Alaska. Additionally, this action proposes to revise one high 
altitude route, fourteen low altitude routes, and remove four existing 
``T'' routes that are no longer required. These routes are being 
proposed to enhance safety, and to facilitate the more flexible and 
efficient use of the navigable airspace for en route instrument flight 
rules (IFR) operations within the state of Alaska. This proposal will 
improve operator efficiency, access and safety, while incrementally 
reducing dependency on ground based navigation facilities. A graphical 
representation of this proposal is on the web (downloadable PDF file) 
at: http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/
service_units/systemops/fs/alaskan/notices/RNAV_Routes/. These areas 
would be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The 
coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 
83.
    The High Altitude RNAV Routes are published in paragraph 2006, and 
the Low Altitude RNAV Routes are published in paragraph 6011 in FAA 
Order 7400.9S, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed 
October 3, 2008, and effective October 31, 2008,

[[Page 7014]]

which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The airspace 
designations 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.
    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 the 
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 proposes to create Class A and E airspace sufficient in size to 
contain aircraft using the described Federal Airways within the State 
of Alaska and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
