Emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with PROPOSALS FAA AD Differences Note 2: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information as follows: Although European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Airworthiness Directive 2010–0217, dated October 21, 2010, specifies both revising the maintenance program to include airworthiness limitations, and doing certain repetitive actions (e.g., inspections) and/or maintaining CDCCLs, this AD only requires the revision. Requiring a revision of the maintenance program, rather than requiring individual repetitive actions and/or maintaining CDCCLs, requires operators to record AD compliance only at the time the revision is made. Repetitive actions and/or maintaining CDCCLs specified in the airworthiness limitations must be complied with in accordance with 14 CFR 91.403(c). Other FAA AD Provisions (l) The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, International VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 May 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 28379 Branch, ANM–116, Transport Airplane Directorate, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

Persons interested in being placed on a mailing list for future NPRMs should contact the FAA’s Office of Rulemaking, (202) 267–9677, for a copy of Advisory Circular No. 11–2A, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application procedure. Background The New York/New Jersey/ Philadelphia Metropolitan Area is served by four major airports: Newark Liberty International, John F. Kennedy International, La Guardia, and Philadelphia International, as well as numerous smaller airports generating significant air traffic operations. The close proximity of the airports, combined with high air traffic volume and a complex airspace structure, contribute to less efficient system operations and air traffic delays that can affect airports across the United States. The FAA has been working on various initiatives to increase the efficiency and reliability of the airspace structure in order to maintain safety, respond to increasing aviation operations and mitigate mounting air traffic delays. Key elements of these efforts include improving user access to the NAS, expediting arrivals and departures, and providing more flexible routing options. Other benefits include reduced ATC system complexity, balanced air traffic controller workload, reduced voice communications requirements and reduced aircraft fuel consumption. This VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 May 16, 2011 Jkt 223001 notice proposes a number of ATS route changes to help address the above issues. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend jet route J– 60, area navigation (RNAV) route Q–42, and VOR Federal airways V–16, V–229 and V–449. In addition, the FAA is proposing to establish four new RNAV routes designated as Q–62, Q–406, Q–448 and Q–480. The proposed changes would facilitate the rerouting of westbound air traffic departing the New York metropolitan area and would also better sequence this departing traffic with en route overflight traffic. The current traffic flows would be split with new routes and navigation fixes added to reduce delays within the New York terminal airspace. The proposed new and revised ATS routes would mostly be used for departures but are also designed to more efficiently accommodate aircraft landing within the Potomac Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) airspace. Potomac TRACON airspace includes, but is not limited to, Washington Dulles International Airport, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, and their satellite airports. The proposed route changes would also help segregate the Potomac TRACON arrivals from the high altitude routes extending from the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) and New York ARTCC areas of responsibility. This action proposes to modify the following existing routes: J–60, Q–42, V–16, V–229 and V–449. J–60 would be realigned at a point northwest of the East Texas, PA, VHF Omnidirectional Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME), by inserting a dogleg to the north of course, then bypassing the East Texas VOR/DME, and extending through a new westgate departure fix, NEWEL, to be added in the vicinity of the ELIOT fix. J–60 would then resume course to the Sparta, NJ, VORTAC. This realignment would help reduce congestion and converging en route aircraft flows and mitigate a choke point over the existing ELIOT departure fix. RNAV route Q–42 would be amended by deleting the current segments between the BRNAN, PA, waypoint (WP) and ELIOT, PA, WP and replacing them with segments extending from BRNAN WP to new WPs HOTEE, PA; BTRIX, PA; SPOTZ, PA, and terminating at a new waypoint ZIMMZ, NJ. This change would also help reduce PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 converging flows and reduce congestion. VOR Federal airways V–16 and V–229 would be amended by inserting a dogleg north of their present courses by following the Kennedy VOR/DME 052° (magnetic) radial northeast of Kennedy VOR/DME. V–16 would then turn east bound, bypassing the Deer Park VOR/ DME, then proceeding to the Calverton VOR/DME and resuming its current course. V–229 would also be modified along the Kennedy VOR/DME 052° radial, then turning eastbound to reintercept its current course toward the Bridgeport, CT, VOR/DME. The V–16 and V–229 changes are intended to free up airspace to accommodate a climb corridor for John F. Kennedy International Airport departures. V–449 currently extends between the Lake Henry, PA, VORTAC and the Albany, NY, VORTAC. This route would be lengthened westward by adding a new segment that extends between the Selinsgrove, PA, VORTAC and the Lake Henry VORTAC via the Milton, PA, VORTAC. This change would facilitate routing for arrivals into La Guardia Airport. Four new RNAV routes are being proposed and would be designated as Q–62, Q–406, Q–448 and Q–480. Q–62 would enhance westward flows, reduce congestion and provide flexibility for aircraft entering the Cleveland ARTCC area and routings toward Chicago. Q–406, Q–448 and Q–480, along with the amended Q–42, would reduce current converging en route flows that result from dependency on groundbased navigation aids. The new Q-route segments would permit some alignment with the, to be established, New York departure fixes NEWEL, CANDR and ZIMMZ. These new fixes would be used for departures from the New York metropolitan area airports to transition and merge aircraft from the terminal structure into the high altitude en route structure and vice versa. In addition, the new routes would relieve congestion by providing alternate routings for aircraft landing at airports outside the New York Metropolitan area. For the full descriptions of these proposed route changes, see The Proposed Amendment section, below. Radials in the VOR Federal airway descriptions below are stated in True degrees, except for the proposed amended airway segments, which include both True and Magnetic values. In a final rule, only True degrees would be stated. Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004, high altitude RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006, and VOR Federal airways are published in E:\FR\FM\17MYP1.SGM 17MYP1 28381 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 95 / Tuesday, May 17, 2011 / Proposed Rules paragraph 6010, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet routes, high altitude RNAV routes and VOR Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published 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 modifies the route structure as required to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic in the northeast United States. 1. The authority citation for part 71 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 This proposed action qualifies for a categorical exclusion 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.

Background

    The New York/New Jersey/Philadelphia Metropolitan Area is served by 
four major airports: Newark Liberty International, John F. Kennedy 
International, La Guardia, and Philadelphia International, as well as 
numerous smaller airports generating significant air traffic 
operations. The close proximity of the airports, combined with high air 
traffic volume and a complex airspace structure, contribute to less 
efficient system operations and air traffic delays that can affect 
airports across the United States. The FAA has been working on various 
initiatives to increase the efficiency and reliability of the airspace 
structure in order to maintain safety, respond to increasing aviation 
operations and mitigate mounting air traffic delays. Key elements of 
these efforts include improving user access to the NAS, expediting 
arrivals and departures, and providing more flexible routing options. 
Other benefits include reduced ATC system complexity, balanced air 
traffic controller workload, reduced voice communications requirements 
and reduced aircraft fuel consumption. This notice proposes a number of 
ATS route changes to help address the above issues.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend jet route J-60, area navigation 
(RNAV) route Q-42, and VOR Federal airways V-16, V-229 and V-449. In 
addition, the FAA is proposing to establish four new RNAV routes 
designated as Q-62, Q-406, Q-448 and Q-480.
    The proposed changes would facilitate the rerouting of westbound 
air traffic departing the New York metropolitan area and would also 
better sequence this departing traffic with en route overflight 
traffic. The current traffic flows would be split with new routes and 
navigation fixes added to reduce delays within the New York terminal 
airspace. The proposed new and revised ATS routes would mostly be used 
for departures but are also designed to more efficiently accommodate 
aircraft landing within the Potomac Terminal Radar Approach Control 
(TRACON) airspace. Potomac TRACON airspace includes, but is not limited 
to, Washington Dulles International Airport, Ronald Reagan Washington 
National Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall 
Airport, and their satellite airports. The proposed route changes would 
also help segregate the Potomac TRACON arrivals from the high altitude 
routes extending from the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center 
(ARTCC) and New York ARTCC areas of responsibility.
    This action proposes to modify the following existing routes: J-60, 
Q-42, V-16, V-229 and V-449. J-60 would be realigned at a point 
northwest of the East Texas, PA, VHF Omnidirectional Range/Distance 
Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME), by inserting a dogleg to the north of 
course, then bypassing the East Texas VOR/DME, and extending through a 
new westgate departure fix, NEWEL, to be added in the vicinity of the 
ELIOT fix. J-60 would then resume course to the Sparta, NJ, VORTAC. 
This realignment would help reduce congestion and converging en route 
aircraft flows and mitigate a choke point over the existing ELIOT 
departure fix.
    RNAV route Q-42 would be amended by deleting the current segments 
between the BRNAN, PA, waypoint (WP) and ELIOT, PA, WP and replacing 
them with segments extending from BRNAN WP to new WPs HOTEE, PA; BTRIX, 
PA; SPOTZ, PA, and terminating at a new waypoint ZIMMZ, NJ. This change 
would also help reduce converging flows and reduce congestion.
    VOR Federal airways V-16 and V-229 would be amended by inserting a 
dogleg north of their present courses by following the Kennedy VOR/DME 
052[deg] (magnetic) radial northeast of Kennedy VOR/DME. V-16 would 
then turn east bound, bypassing the Deer Park VOR/DME, then proceeding 
to the Calverton VOR/DME and resuming its current course. V-229 would 
also be modified along the Kennedy VOR/DME 052[deg] radial, then 
turning eastbound to re-intercept its current course toward the 
Bridgeport, CT, VOR/DME. The V-16 and V-229 changes are intended to 
free up airspace to accommodate a climb corridor for John F. Kennedy 
International Airport departures.
    V-449 currently extends between the Lake Henry, PA, VORTAC and the 
Albany, NY, VORTAC. This route would be lengthened westward by adding a 
new segment that extends between the Selinsgrove, PA, VORTAC and the 
Lake Henry VORTAC via the Milton, PA, VORTAC. This change would 
facilitate routing for arrivals into La Guardia Airport.
    Four new RNAV routes are being proposed and would be designated as 
Q-62, Q-406, Q-448 and Q-480. Q-62 would enhance westward flows, reduce 
congestion and provide flexibility for aircraft entering the Cleveland 
ARTCC area and routings toward Chicago.
    Q-406, Q-448 and Q-480, along with the amended Q-42, would reduce 
current converging en route flows that result from dependency on 
ground-based navigation aids. The new Q-route segments would permit 
some alignment with the, to be established, New York departure fixes 
NEWEL, CANDR and ZIMMZ. These new fixes would be used for departures 
from the New York metropolitan area airports to transition and merge 
aircraft from the terminal structure into the high altitude en route 
structure and vice versa. In addition, the new routes would relieve 
congestion by providing alternate routings for aircraft landing at 
airports outside the New York Metropolitan area.
    For the full descriptions of these proposed route changes, see The 
Proposed Amendment section, below. Radials in the VOR Federal airway 
descriptions below are stated in True degrees, except for the proposed 
amended airway segments, which include both True and Magnetic values. 
In a final rule, only True degrees would be stated.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004, high altitude RNAV 
routes are published in paragraph 2006, and VOR Federal airways are 
published in

[[Page 28381]]

paragraph 6010, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 
2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by 
reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet routes, high altitude RNAV routes and 
VOR Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently 
published 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 modifies the route structure as required to preserve the safe and 
efficient flow of air traffic in the northeast United States.

Environmental Review

    This proposed action qualifies for a categorical exclusion 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.
