Revision of Area Navigation (RNAV) Route Q-108; Florida, 65687-65688 [E9-29387]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 237 / Friday, December 11, 2009 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 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 amends a portion of the en route structure to enhance the safe and efficient use of the NAS in Florida.

No comments were received in response to the NPRM. The NPRM inadvertently stated that T–73 was established to continue IFR service to the Village of Kaktovik, Alaska, it should have read T–273. With the exception of this editorial change, this amendment is the same as that published in the notice of proposed rulemaking. The Rule This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71, by revising two Colored Federal Airways, G–16 and B–26 by removing the segment to the BTI NDB from each airway description. In a separate action, one Area Navigation (RNAV) route T–228 was revised, and T–273 was established to continue IFR service to the Village of Kaktovik, Alaska. The BTI NDB decommissioning proposal was publicly circulated in notice number 06–AAL–49NR. After reviewing public comment, the FAA decided that keeping the NDB was not feasible and that it should be decommissioned. 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 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Friday, October 23, 2009, the FAA published in the Federal 
Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to revise area navigation 
route Q-108 (74 FR 54766). Interested parties were invited to 
participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on 
the proposal. No comments were received.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by revising the description of high altitude RNAV route Q-108. 
The route currently extends between the GADAY and CLAWZ waypoints. This 
action realigns the route to terminate at the HKUNA WP, instead of 
CLAWZ, where it will join the PIGLT TWO standard terminal arrival 
(STAR) serving the Orlando International Airport, FL. In addition, two 
new WPs, IZZEY and FRNKS, are added to Q-108 between GADAY and HKUNA. 
This change shifts the alignment of Q-108 slightly to the south of its 
current track. This revision enhances the efficiency of the route 
structure in the northern Florida area.
    High altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA 
Order 7400.9T dated August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV route 
listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order.
    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 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 rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant

[[Page 65688]]

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 amends a portion of the en route structure to enhance the safe 
and efficient use of the NAS in northern Florida .

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 and 311b. 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.
