Background On January 12, 2009, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued Notice No. 08–07, Qualification, Service, and Use of Crewmembers and Aircraft Dispatchers (74 FR 1280). VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:23 Apr 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 Comments to that document were to be received on or before May 12, 2009. By letter dated April 3, 2009, the Air Transport Association of America, Inc., Air Carrier Association of America, Regional Airline Association, and National Air Carrier Association on behalf of their members, and Airbus Americas, Inc. requested that the FAA extend the comment period for Notice No. 08–07 for 180 days. They requested the extension so the public has sufficient time to review and comment on the extensive and complex proposed rule. While the FAA concurs with the petitioners’ requests for an extension of the comment period on Notice No. 08– 07, the FAA believes that a 180-day extension would be excessive. As Notice No. 08–07 is lengthy, the FAA provided a 120-day comment period. Although the FAA agrees that additional time for comments may be needed, this need must be balanced against the need to proceed expeditiously with an important rulemaking. The FAA believes an additional 90 days would be adequate for these petitioners to provide meaningful comment to Notice No. 08– 07. The FAA does not anticipate any further extension of the comment period for this rulemaking. Extension of Comment Period In accordance with section 11.47(c) of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the petition made by the Air Transport Association of America, Inc., Air Carrier Association of America, Regional Airline Association, and the National Air Carrier Association on behalf of their members, and Airbus Americas, Inc. for extension of the comment period to Notice No. 08–07. These petitioners have shown a substantive interest in the proposed rule and good cause for the extension. The FAA has determined that extension of the comment period is consistent with the public interest, and that good cause exists for taking this action. Accordingly, the comment period for Notice No. 08–07 is extended until August 10, 2009. Issued in Washington, DC, on April 15, 2009. Pamela Hamilton-Powell, Director, Office of Rulemaking. [FR Doc.

History In November 2008, Albuquerque ARTCC requested the establishment of a new airway for the coordination of border crossing flights between Mexico and the United States. This action responds to that request. VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:23 Apr 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish VOR Federal Airway 625 (V–625) between the Nogales, AZ, Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the ULAPI, AZ, intersection. Specifically, the FAA is proposing this action to establish a coordination point to facilitate border crossing flights between Mexico and the United States. Domestic VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9S, signed October 3, 2008 and effective October 31, 2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Domestic VOR Federal Airway listed in this document will 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 establishes a VOR Federal Airway in Arizona. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

History

    In November 2008, Albuquerque ARTCC requested the establishment of 
a new airway for the coordination of border crossing flights between 
Mexico and the United States. This action responds to that request.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish VOR Federal Airway 625 (V-
625) between the Nogales, AZ, Very High Frequency Omnidirectional 
Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the ULAPI, AZ, intersection. 
Specifically, the FAA is proposing this action to establish a 
coordination point to facilitate border crossing flights between Mexico 
and the United States.
    Domestic VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of 
FAA Order 7400.9S, signed October 3, 2008 and effective October 31, 
2008, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Domestic 
VOR Federal Airway listed in this document will 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 establishes a VOR Federal Airway in Arizona.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures,'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
