No. 483] IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of SUMMARY: the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas. DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, October 22, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Harry Hodges, Flight Procedure Standards Branch (AMCAFS–420), Flight Technologies and Programs Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration, Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, 6500 South MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73169 (Mail Address: P.O. Box 25082, Oklahoma City, OK 73125) telephone: (405) 954–4164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as prescribed in part 95. The Rule The specified IFR altitudes, when used in conjunction with the prescribed changeover points for those routes, ensure navigation aid coverage that is adequate for safe flight operations and free of frequency interference. The reasons and circumstances that create the need for this amendment involve matters of flight safety and operational efficiency in the National Airspace System, are related to published aeronautical charts that are essential to the user, and provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. In addition, those various reasons or circumstances require making this amendment effective before the next scheduled charting and publication date of the flight information to assure its timely availability to the user. The effective date of this amendment reflects those considerations. In view of the close and immediate relationship between these regulatory changes and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure before adopting this amendment are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and that good cause exists for making the amendment effective in less than 30 days. Conclusion 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. It, therefore—(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. For the same reason, the FAA certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required 
IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for 
certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a 
minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This 
regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the 
National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the 
safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument 
conditions in the affected areas.

DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, October 22, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Harry Hodges, Flight Procedure 
Standards Branch (AMCAFS-420), Flight Technologies and Programs 
Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration, 
Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, 6500 South MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma 
City, OK 73169 (Mail Address: P.O. Box 25082, Oklahoma City, OK 73125) 
telephone: (405) 954-4164.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR 
altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a 
specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover 
points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as 
prescribed in part 95.

The Rule

    The specified IFR altitudes, when used in conjunction with the 
prescribed changeover points for those routes, ensure navigation aid 
coverage that is adequate for safe flight operations and free of 
frequency interference. The reasons and circumstances that create the 
need for this amendment involve matters of flight safety and 
operational efficiency in the National Airspace System, are related to 
published aeronautical charts that are essential to the user, and 
provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. In 
addition, those various reasons or circumstances require making this 
amendment effective before the next scheduled charting and publication 
date of the flight information to assure its timely availability to the 
user. The effective date of this amendment reflects those 
considerations. In view of the close and immediate relationship between 
these regulatory changes and safety in air commerce, I find that notice 
and public procedure before adopting this amendment are impracticable 
and contrary to the public interest and that good cause exists for 
making the amendment effective in less than 30 days.

Conclusion

    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. 
It, therefore--(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. For the same reason, the FAA 
certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic 
impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
