SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [FR Doc. 2012–21830 Filed 9–5–12; 8:45 am] History BILLING CODE 4910–13–P On July 10, 2012, the FAA published a final rule, in the Federal Register changing the name of the airport associated with the Class D and E airspace at Lakehurst, NJ, to Lakehurst Naval Support Activity/Maxfield Field (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst) (77 FR 40488). After publication, the FAA found that the geographic coordinates of the airport and Lakehurst (Navy) NDB navigation aid need to be adjusted to be in concert with the FAAs aeronautical database. This action makes the administrative adjustment that does not affect the altitude, boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace. Therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. The Class D and E airspace designations are published in Paragraphs 5000 and 6004 respectively of FAA order 7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D and E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Correction to Final Rule Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the geographic coordinates listed in the airspace designation of the Class D and Class E airspace areas for Lakehurst Naval Support Activity/Maxfield Field (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst), and the Lakehurst (Navy) NDB, Lakehurst, NJ, as published in the Federal Register of July 10, 2012, (77 FR 40488), FR Doc. 2012–16674, are corrected as follows: * * * * * AEA NJ D Lakehurst, NJ [Corrected] Lakehurst Naval Support Activity/Maxfield Field, NJ (Joint Base McGuire-DixLakehurst) On page 40488, column 3, line 27, remove, ‘‘lat. 40°02′00″ N., long. 74°21′13″ W’’, and insert ‘‘lat. 40°02′09″ N., long. 74°21′05″ W’’.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action removes Jet Route J–528 because the route is too short to serve a useful navigation or air traffic control purpose and is causing flight plan rejections in the air traffic control automation system. DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, November 15, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Gallant, Airspace, Regulations and ATC Procedures Group, Office of Airspace Services, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202) 267–8783. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Jet Route J–528 is currently depicted on United States High Altitude En Route Navigation charts as a three-mile long segment that extends between the Whatcom, WA, VORTAC and the United States/Canadian border. J–528 is described in FAA Order 7400.9V as extending from Whatcom, WA, to Williams Lake, BC, Canada, excluding the airspace within Canada. The current FAA air traffic control automation system does not recognize J–528 beyond the Seattle Air Route Traffic Control Center and Vancouver Area Control Center boundary. This results in numerous rejected international flight plans and additional air traffic controller workload. Since J–528 parallels another existing Jet Route, J– 534 that originates in U.S. airspace and proceeds to Williams Lake, BC, Canada, Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 removing J–528 will not adversely affect NAS operations. In addition, NavCanada has advised that the designator J–528 is used for a route that exists entirely within Canadian airspace. The Rule DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PO 00000 54805 Sfmt 4700 The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by removing Jet Route J–528 in Washington state. Due to its short length, the route serves no useful navigation or air traffic control purpose and causes flight plan error problems for the air traffic control automation system. Another Jet Route, J–534, that already exists through the same area, provides routing into Canada; therefore, removing J–528 will not result in any adverse impact to the NAS. Because this action removes a redundant route segment that does not serve a useful navigation purpose, but causes problems for the air traffic control automation system, I find that notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impractical and contrary to the public interest. 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 E:\FR\FM\06SER1.SGM 06SER1 54806 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 173 / Thursday, September 6, 2012 / Rules and Regulations it removes a Jet Route that no longer serves a purpose in the NAS.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Jet Route J-528 is currently depicted on United States High 
Altitude En Route Navigation charts as a three-mile long segment that 
extends between the Whatcom, WA, VORTAC and the United States/Canadian 
border. J-528 is described in FAA Order 7400.9V as extending from 
Whatcom, WA, to Williams Lake, BC, Canada, excluding the airspace 
within Canada. The current FAA air traffic control automation system 
does not recognize J-528 beyond the Seattle Air Route Traffic Control 
Center and Vancouver Area Control Center boundary. This results in 
numerous rejected international flight plans and additional air traffic 
controller workload. Since J-528 parallels another existing Jet Route, 
J-534 that originates in U.S. airspace and proceeds to Williams Lake, 
BC, Canada, removing J-528 will not adversely affect NAS operations. In 
addition, NavCanada has advised that the designator J-528 is used for a 
route that exists entirely within Canadian airspace.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by removing Jet Route J-528 in Washington state. Due to its 
short length, the route serves no useful navigation or air traffic 
control purpose and causes flight plan error problems for the air 
traffic control automation system. Another Jet Route, J-534, that 
already exists through the same area, provides routing into Canada; 
therefore, removing J-528 will not result in any adverse impact to the 
NAS.
    Because this action removes a redundant route segment that does not 
serve a useful navigation purpose, but causes problems for the air 
traffic control automation system, I find that notice and public 
procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are impractical and contrary to the 
public interest.
    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 removes a Jet Route that no longer serves a purpose in the NAS.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9V, 
signed August 9, 2011 and effective September 15, 2011, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this 
document will be removed subsequently from the Order.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with 311a, FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures.'' 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.
