Categorical Exclusion From Further Environmental Review for Standard Terminal Arrival Route Procedures for Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport Federal Aviation Administration DATES: Ms. Lee Kyker, Environmental Specialist, Air Traffic Eastern Service Center, Operations Support Group, 1701 Columbia Ave., College Park, GA 30337. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Notice is hereby given that the FAA has elected to ‘‘Categorically Exclude from further environmental review’’ the proposed procedures as follows: GIBBZ (RNAV) STAR, DOCCS STAR, RNLDI (RNAV) SID (previously named BLUES ONE (RNAV) SID) and BUNZZ ONE (RNAV) SID. Project: Publish GIBBZ (RNAV) STAR, DOCCS STAR, RNLDI (RNAV) SID (previously named BLUES ONE (RNAV) SID) and BUNZZ ONE (RNAV) SID. Location: Washington Dulles International Airport. This project consists of publishing procedures identified as the GIBBZ (RNAV) STAR, DOCCS STAR, RNLDI (RNAV) SID (previously named BLUES ONE (RNAV) SID) and BUNZZ ONE (RNAV) SID. On June 4, 2012, the BLUES (RNAV) SID was renamed to the RNLDI RNAV SID. RNAV facilitates more efficient design of airspace and procedures which collectively result in improved safety, access, predictability, and operational efficiency. Improved access and flexibility for point-to-point operations help enhance reliability and reduce delays by defining more precise terminal area procedures. The review process indicated that the proposed project will not adversely impact the environment. Consequently, the FAA has elected to ‘‘Categorically Exclude from further environmental review’’ the proposed Standard Terminal Arrival procedures, based upon compliance with FAA Order 1050.1E, § 311(i). srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Issued in Atlanta, GA, on August 1, 2012.
