ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This action modifies two jet routes and seven VOR Federal airways; and removes two VOR Federal airways in the vicinity of Jackson, MS.

On page 28129, in paragraph (g), in the eighth line, ‘‘737–28A1407’’ should be ‘‘737–28A1307’’. 2. On page 28130, in the same section, in paragraph (j)(2)(i), ‘‘737–28A1407’’ should read ‘‘737–28A1307. The FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend two jet routes and seven VOR Federal airways; and cancel two VOR Federal airways in the vicinity of Jackson, MS (78 FR 10560, February 14, 2013). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. One comment was received and the commenter expressed support for the proposal. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29613 The Rule This action amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying two jet routes and seven VOR Federal airways; and cancelling two VOR Federal airways in the vicinity of Jackson, MS. Specifically, this action makes the following changes to the routes: Jet Route J–4 is amended by removing ‘‘Jackson, MS’’ from the description and inserting ‘‘Magnolia, MS’’ in its place. Jet Route J–20 is amended by removing ‘‘Jackson, MS’’ from the description and inserting ‘‘Magnolia, MS’’ in its place. Also, the J–20 description in FAA Order 7400.9 contains an editorial error whereby ‘‘Montgomery, AL’’ is listed before ‘‘Meridian, MS’’ instead of following it. This action corrects the description by moving ‘‘Montgomery, AL’’ to follow ‘‘Meridian, MS’’ to match its proper geographic position along the route. It should be noted that this editorial error appears only in the route description in FAA Order 7400.9. J–20 is correct in the NAS database and on IFR Enroute High Altitude chart H–6. VOR Federal Airways V–9 and V–11 are amended by removing ‘‘Jackson, MS’’ and inserting ‘‘Magnolia, MS’’ and by inserting radial intersections using the new Magnolia VORTAC. VOR Federal Airway V–18 is amended by removing ‘‘Jackson, MS’’ and inserting ‘‘Magnolia, MS’’ in its place and by correcting the spelling of ‘‘Talladega’’ in the route description listed in FAA Order 7400.9. VOR Federal Airway V–74 is amended so that the last route segment proceeds from the Greenville, MS, VOR/ DME direct to the new Magnolia VORTAC instead of the Jackson VORTAC. VOR Federal Airway V–245 is amended by removing ‘‘Jackson, MS’’ and substituting ‘‘Magnolia, MS,’’ in the description. Currently, V–417 extends from Monroe, LA, to Charleston, SC. This action cancels the portion of V–417 that lies between Monroe, LA, and Meridian, MS. Between those two points, V–417 serves as an alternate airway to V–18. However, V–18 provides direct, more efficient routing between Monroe and Meridian, while V–417 includes two doglegs to the south of V–18, resulting in additional flying miles between Monroe and Meridian. The V–417 segments between Monroe and Meridian have been deemed obsolete and of little value to the National Airspace System (NAS), therefore, V–417 is amended to begin at Meridian and then proceed along the currently published route to Charleston.
