Background The Lake Henry, PA (LHY) VORTAC facility is currently out of service. A determination has been made to permanently decommission the facility due to projected signal degradation from a planned power line nearby. Additionally, the LHY VORTAC is not on the list of VORs planned for retention in the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON). As a result, the ATS routes that utilize the LHY VORTAC must be amended. The affected routes are: Jet route J–36 and VOR Federal airways V–58, V–93, V– 106, V–126, V–149, V–153, and V–408. With the decommissioning of the LHY VORTAC, ground-based navigation aid (NAVAID) coverage is insufficient to enable the continuity of all the airways. Therefore, the proposed modifications to VOR Federal airways V–58, V–93, V– 106, V–126, V–149, and V–408 would result in a gap in the route structures. Route segments supported by other NAVAIDs would be retained. Each of these airways would have an RNAV Troute overlying its original track. A portion of J–36 would also be deleted and replaced by Q–436. Although not directly affected by the LHY VORTAC decommissioning, J–68 would be amended to support the transition to RNAV and reduce chart clutter as noted below. The FAA also plans to establish a new Waypoint (WP)/Intersection (INT), named LAAYK, within 0.01 seconds of latitude of the LHY VORTAC’s position. The LAAYK WP (defined by lat. 41°28′33″ N., long. 075°28′57″ W.; or the intersection of the Wilkes-Barre, PA 037°T/047°M and Sparta, NJ 300°T/ 311°M radials) would be utilized in a number of the routes described in this proposal. E:\FR\FM\26JNP1.SGM 26JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 26, 2013 / Proposed Rules TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend jet routes J– 36 and J–68; VOR Federal airways V–58, V–93, V–106, V–126, V–149, V–408; and RNAV routes T–212, T–291 and T–295. The FAA also proposes to establish new RNAV routes Q–436, Q–438, Q–440, T– 216, T–218 and T–221. In addition, VOR Federal airways V–153 and V–449 would be cancelled. The scheduled decommissioning of the LHY VORTAC facility has made this action necessary. The proposed route changes are outlined below. J–36: J–36 currently extends between Mullan Pass, ID (MLP) and Sparta, NJ (SAX). The FAA proposes to eliminate the part of the route between Flint, MI (FNT) and SAX. A new RNAV route, Q– 436, is proposed, as described below, that would replace the cancelled segment. Most aircraft utilizing J–36 are RNAV equipped, so replacing the above J–36 segment with an RNAV route would further the transition to an RNAV route structure and support the NextGen initiative. J–68: J–68 currently extends between Gopher, MN (GEP) and Dunkirk, NY (DKK); and then between Hancock, NY (HNK) and Nantucket, MA (ACK). Although J–68 is not directly affected by the planned LHY VORTAC decommissioning, the FAA proposes to cancel that part of J–68 that extends between FNT and DKK. J–68 overlies J– 36 between FNT and DKK. The proposed Q–436, Q–438 and Q–440 (see below), as well as other jet routes, provide alternative routings through the area. Therefore cancelling the segments of J–68 between FNT and DKK would support the transition to RNAV and reduce chart clutter. The portion of J–68 between Hancock, NY and Nantucket, MA would be retained as currently published. Q–436: This proposed new route would extend between the EMMMA, MI, fix and the COATE, NJ, fix (approximately 8 NM NW of Sparta). Q– 436 would replace the cancelled segments of J–36 and that part of J–68 that extends between FNT and DKK. The proposed routing of Q–436 from the COATE, NJ, INT/WP to a point southeast of DKK is an exact overlay of the segments of J–36 proposed for cancellation (see above). From this point Q–436 would continue westbound to provide a more direct routing for aircraft transiting from the New York area landing in Chicago, IL. Q–438 and Q–440: During the development of Q–436, two additional Q-routes (Q–438 and Q–440) were VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:30 Jun 25, 2013 Jkt 229001 designed to segregate Chicago O’Hare arrivals from other westbound traffic. Q–438 would extend between the RUBYY, MI, WP and the RAAKK, NY, WP. Q–440 would extend between the SLLAP, MI, WP and the RAAKK, NY, WP. From a point southeast of DKK, Q– 438 and Q–440 would diverge from Q– 436 to provide segregation between Chicago arrivals and aircraft overflying the Chicago area. Although not directly related to the LHY VORTAC decommissioning, these additional Qroutes would reduce ATC sector complexity, allow overflight aircraft to be cleared to their cruising altitude more expeditiously and provide a more direct routing to destinations west of Chicago; therefore, they are included in this proposed rule. V–58: V–58 currently extends between the intersection of the Franklin, PA, (FKL) 175° and Clarion, PA, (CAV) 222° radials and ACK. The V–58 segments between Williamsport, PA (FQM) and the HELON, NY, intersection (formed by the intersection of the Sparta, NJ, 018° and Kingston, NY, 270° radials) would be removed. Following this gap, the airway would resume its current track between HELON and ACK. V–93: V–93 currently extends between Patuxent River, MD (PXT), and the United States/Canadian border, (near Princeton, ME [PNN]). As proposed, V–93 would extend between PXT and the new LAAYK INT. The segments between LAAYK, PA, and HELON, NY, would be deleted. The route would then resume its current track between HELON, NY, and the United States/Canadian Border. V–106: V–106 currently extends between Johnstown, PA (JST), and Kennebunk, ME (ENE). V–106 would be realigned to the LAAYK INT in lieu of LHY and that portion of the airway between LAAYK and Barnes, MA (BAF) would be deleted. Following that gap, the airway would resume its currently published track between BAF and ENE. This change is proposed because other routings are available via other conventional airways (V–34 from WEETS, NY, to Pawling, NY (PWL) then V–405 to BAF). The change would also reduce chart clutter. As described below, T–212 would replace the deleted segments of V–106. V–126: V–126 currently extends between the intersection of the Peotone, IL (EON), 053° and Knox, IN (OXI), 297° radials and Sparta, NJ. That portion of V–126 between Stonyfork, PA (SFK) and Sparta would be deleted. The proposed RNAV route T–218 would overlay the airway. V–149: V–149 currently extends between the intersection of the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 38237 Allentown, PA (FJC), 147° and Solberg, NJ (SBJ), 227° radials, through the FJC VORTAC and LHY VORTAC, then on to Binghamton, NY (CFB). V–149 would be modified by replacing the LHY VORTAC with the new LAAYK INT (formed by radials from the CFB and FJC VORTACs). In addition, V–149 currently utilizes the FJC 147°(M) radial to define the segment between the MAZIE fix and FJC. This radial is currently charted as ‘‘unusable.’’ Therefore, the FAA also proposes to remove that segment of V–149 between the MAZIE fix and FJC. The proposed T–221 would overlie this removed segment as described below. V–153: V–153 currently extends between Lake Henry, PA, and Syracuse, NY (SYR). The FAA is proposing to remove V–153 in its entirety based on other available route alternatives and minimal usage by air traffic. V–408: V–408 currently extends between the intersection of the Martinsburg, WV (MRB), 058° and Modena, PA (MXE), 258° radials and the intersection of the Lake Henry, PA, 056° and Barnes, MA, 265° radials (i.e., the SAGES fix). As proposed, V–408 would terminate at Allentown, PA, and the segments between Allentown and SAGES would be deleted. The deleted portion would be replaced by a proposed extension of T–295, described below. V–449: V–449 currently extends between Milton, PA (MIP), and Albany, NY (ALB). The FAA proposes to remove V–449 in its entirety. With the LHY decommissioning, the remainder of the airway will not pass flight inspection. A proposed extension of T–291 would replace this airway, as described below. T–212: T–212 currently extends between the WEARD, NY, fix and the Putnam, CT, VOR/DME (PUT). The FAA proposes to extend T–212 to the west by adding segments between the existing RASHE, PA, fix (formed by the intersection of radials from the Selinsgrove, PA, and the Philipsburg, PA, VORTACs) and WEARD. As proposed, T–212 would replace the cancelled segment of V–106 between the LAAYK and WEETS fixes. T–216: T–216 is a proposed new route that would extend between the Philipsburg, PA, VORTAC (PSB) and the Nantucket, MA, VOR/DME (ACK). T– 216 would overlie V–58 between PSB and ACK, and would also replace the cancelled portion of V–93 between the LAAYK INT and the HELON fix. T–218: T–218 is a proposed new route that would extend between the Stonyfork, PA (SFK), VOR/DME and the Sparta, NJ, VORTAC (SAX). T–218 E:\FR\FM\26JNP1.SGM 26JNP1 38238 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 123 / Wednesday, June 26, 2013 / Proposed Rules TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS would replace V–126 between SFK and SAX. T–221: T–221 is a proposed new route that would extend between the MAZIE, PA, fix and the Albany, NY, VORTAC (ALB). T–221 would overlie V–149 between the MAZIE fix and Binghamton, NY (CFB). T–291: is a newly established route to become effective August 22, 2013 (78 FR 29615, May 21, 2013), extending between the LOUIE, MD, fix and the Harrisburg, PA, VORTAC (HAR). After T–291 becomes effective, this proposal would further extend the route northward between HAR and ALB. The extended route would overlie V–31 to Selinsgrove, PA (SEG), then proceed direct to MIP, and from MIP it would replace V–449 by way of the LAAYK WP, terminating at ALB. T–295: T–295 is a newly established route to become effective August 22, 2013 (78 FR 29615, May 21, 2013), extending between the LOUIE, MD, fix and the Lancaster, PA, VORTAC (LRP). After T–295 becomes effective, this proposal would further extend the route northward to the Princeton, ME, VOR/ DME (PNN). T–295 would overlie V–93 from LRP through Wilkes-Barre, PA (LVZ), to the LAAYK WP and then would replace V–408 from LAAYK to the SAGES, NY, INT/WP where it would turn and overlie V–292 until the SASHA, MA, INT/WP. T–295 would then continue northbound overlying V– 93 to PNN. Where new navigation aid radials are cited in a proposed route description, below, both True and Magnetic degrees are shown. Otherwise, only True degrees are stated. Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004; high altitude RNAV routes (Q) are published in paragraph 2006; VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a); and low altitude RNAV routes (T) are published in paragraph 6011, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet routes, Q routes, VOR Federal airways and T routes 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, does 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 necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic and to advance the use of Performance Based Navigation technology. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Proposed Establishment, Modification and Cancellation of Air 
Traffic Service (ATS) Routes; Northeast United States

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify two jet routes, six VOR Federal 
airways, and three area navigation routes; to establish six area 
navigation (RNAV) routes; and to cancel two VOR Federal airways in the 
northeast United States. The FAA is proposing this action due to the 
scheduled decommissioning of the Lake Henry, PA, VHF Omnidirectional 
Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) facility which provides 
navigation guidance for portions of the affected routes. This action 
would enhance the safety and efficient management of aircraft within 
the National Airspace System.

Background

    The Lake Henry, PA (LHY) VORTAC facility is currently out of 
service. A determination has been made to permanently decommission the 
facility due to projected signal degradation from a planned power line 
nearby. Additionally, the LHY VORTAC is not on the list of VORs planned 
for retention in the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON). As a 
result, the ATS routes that utilize the LHY VORTAC must be amended. The 
affected routes are: Jet route J-36 and VOR Federal airways V-58, V-93, 
V-106, V-126, V-149, V-153, and V-408. With the decommissioning of the 
LHY VORTAC, ground-based navigation aid (NAVAID) coverage is 
insufficient to enable the continuity of all the airways. Therefore, 
the proposed modifications to VOR Federal airways V-58, V-93, V-106, V-
126, V-149, and V-408 would result in a gap in the route structures. 
Route segments supported by other NAVAIDs would be retained. Each of 
these airways would have an RNAV T-route overlying its original track. 
A portion of J-36 would also be deleted and replaced by Q-436. Although 
not directly affected by the LHY VORTAC decommissioning, J-68 would be 
amended to support the transition to RNAV and reduce chart clutter as 
noted below.
    The FAA also plans to establish a new Waypoint (WP)/Intersection 
(INT), named LAAYK, within 0.01 seconds of latitude of the LHY VORTAC's 
position. The LAAYK WP (defined by lat. 41[deg]28'33'' N., long. 
075[deg]28'57'' W.; or the intersection of the Wilkes-Barre, PA 
037[deg]T/047[deg]M and Sparta, NJ 300[deg]T/311[deg]M radials) would 
be utilized in a number of the routes described in this proposal.

[[Page 38237]]

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend jet routes J-36 and J-68; VOR 
Federal airways V-58, V-93, V-106, V-126, V-149, V-408; and RNAV routes 
T-212, T-291 and T-295. The FAA also proposes to establish new RNAV 
routes Q-436, Q-438, Q-440, T-216, T-218 and T-221. In addition, VOR 
Federal airways V-153 and V-449 would be cancelled. The scheduled 
decommissioning of the LHY VORTAC facility has made this action 
necessary.
    The proposed route changes are outlined below.
    J-36: J-36 currently extends between Mullan Pass, ID (MLP) and 
Sparta, NJ (SAX). The FAA proposes to eliminate the part of the route 
between Flint, MI (FNT) and SAX. A new RNAV route, Q-436, is proposed, 
as described below, that would replace the cancelled segment. Most 
aircraft utilizing J-36 are RNAV equipped, so replacing the above J-36 
segment with an RNAV route would further the transition to an RNAV 
route structure and support the NextGen initiative.
    J-68: J-68 currently extends between Gopher, MN (GEP) and Dunkirk, 
NY (DKK); and then between Hancock, NY (HNK) and Nantucket, MA (ACK). 
Although J-68 is not directly affected by the planned LHY VORTAC 
decommissioning, the FAA proposes to cancel that part of J-68 that 
extends between FNT and DKK. J-68 overlies J-36 between FNT and DKK. 
The proposed Q-436, Q-438 and Q-440 (see below), as well as other jet 
routes, provide alternative routings through the area. Therefore 
cancelling the segments of J-68 between FNT and DKK would support the 
transition to RNAV and reduce chart clutter. The portion of J-68 
between Hancock, NY and Nantucket, MA would be retained as currently 
published.
    Q-436: This proposed new route would extend between the EMMMA, MI, 
fix and the COATE, NJ, fix (approximately 8 NM NW of Sparta). Q-436 
would replace the cancelled segments of J-36 and that part of J-68 that 
extends between FNT and DKK. The proposed routing of Q-436 from the 
COATE, NJ, INT/WP to a point southeast of DKK is an exact overlay of 
the segments of J-36 proposed for cancellation (see above). From this 
point Q-436 would continue westbound to provide a more direct routing 
for aircraft transiting from the New York area landing in Chicago, IL.
    Q-438 and Q-440: During the development of Q-436, two additional Q-
routes (Q-438 and Q-440) were designed to segregate Chicago O'Hare 
arrivals from other westbound traffic. Q-438 would extend between the 
RUBYY, MI, WP and the RAAKK, NY, WP. Q-440 would extend between the 
SLLAP, MI, WP and the RAAKK, NY, WP. From a point southeast of DKK, Q-
438 and Q-440 would diverge from Q-436 to provide segregation between 
Chicago arrivals and aircraft overflying the Chicago area. Although not 
directly related to the LHY VORTAC decommissioning, these additional Q-
routes would reduce ATC sector complexity, allow overflight aircraft to 
be cleared to their cruising altitude more expeditiously and provide a 
more direct routing to destinations west of Chicago; therefore, they 
are included in this proposed rule.
    V-58: V-58 currently extends between the intersection of the 
Franklin, PA, (FKL) 175[deg] and Clarion, PA, (CAV) 222[deg] radials 
and ACK. The V-58 segments between Williamsport, PA (FQM) and the 
HELON, NY, intersection (formed by the intersection of the Sparta, NJ, 
018[deg] and Kingston, NY, 270[deg] radials) would be removed. 
Following this gap, the airway would resume its current track between 
HELON and ACK.
    V-93: V-93 currently extends between Patuxent River, MD (PXT), and 
the United States/Canadian border, (near Princeton, ME [PNN]). As 
proposed, V-93 would extend between PXT and the new LAAYK INT. The 
segments between LAAYK, PA, and HELON, NY, would be deleted. The route 
would then resume its current track between HELON, NY, and the United 
States/Canadian Border.
    V-106: V-106 currently extends between Johnstown, PA (JST), and 
Kennebunk, ME (ENE). V-106 would be realigned to the LAAYK INT in lieu 
of LHY and that portion of the airway between LAAYK and Barnes, MA 
(BAF) would be deleted. Following that gap, the airway would resume its 
currently published track between BAF and ENE. This change is proposed 
because other routings are available via other conventional airways (V-
34 from WEETS, NY, to Pawling, NY (PWL) then V-405 to BAF). The change 
would also reduce chart clutter. As described below, T-212 would 
replace the deleted segments of V-106.
    V-126: V-126 currently extends between the intersection of the 
Peotone, IL (EON), 053[deg] and Knox, IN (OXI), 297[deg] radials and 
Sparta, NJ. That portion of V-126 between Stonyfork, PA (SFK) and 
Sparta would be deleted. The proposed RNAV route T-218 would overlay 
the airway.
    V-149: V-149 currently extends between the intersection of the 
Allentown, PA (FJC), 147[deg] and Solberg, NJ (SBJ), 227[deg] radials, 
through the FJC VORTAC and LHY VORTAC, then on to Binghamton, NY (CFB). 
V-149 would be modified by replacing the LHY VORTAC with the new LAAYK 
INT (formed by radials from the CFB and FJC VORTACs). In addition, V-
149 currently utilizes the FJC 147[deg](M) radial to define the segment 
between the MAZIE fix and FJC. This radial is currently charted as 
``unusable.'' Therefore, the FAA also proposes to remove that segment 
of V-149 between the MAZIE fix and FJC. The proposed T-221 would 
overlie this removed segment as described below.
    V-153: V-153 currently extends between Lake Henry, PA, and 
Syracuse, NY (SYR). The FAA is proposing to remove V-153 in its 
entirety based on other available route alternatives and minimal usage 
by air traffic.
    V-408: V-408 currently extends between the intersection of the 
Martinsburg, WV (MRB), 058[deg] and Modena, PA (MXE), 258[deg] radials 
and the intersection of the Lake Henry, PA, 056[deg] and Barnes, MA, 
265[deg] radials (i.e., the SAGES fix). As proposed, V-408 would 
terminate at Allentown, PA, and the segments between Allentown and 
SAGES would be deleted. The deleted portion would be replaced by a 
proposed extension of T-295, described below.
    V-449: V-449 currently extends between Milton, PA (MIP), and 
Albany, NY (ALB). The FAA proposes to remove V-449 in its entirety. 
With the LHY decommissioning, the remainder of the airway will not pass 
flight inspection. A proposed extension of T-291 would replace this 
airway, as described below.
    T-212: T-212 currently extends between the WEARD, NY, fix and the 
Putnam, CT, VOR/DME (PUT). The FAA proposes to extend T-212 to the west 
by adding segments between the existing RASHE, PA, fix (formed by the 
intersection of radials from the Selinsgrove, PA, and the Philipsburg, 
PA, VORTACs) and WEARD. As proposed, T-212 would replace the cancelled 
segment of V-106 between the LAAYK and WEETS fixes.
    T-216: T-216 is a proposed new route that would extend between the 
Philipsburg, PA, VORTAC (PSB) and the Nantucket, MA, VOR/DME (ACK). T-
216 would overlie V-58 between PSB and ACK, and would also replace the 
cancelled portion of V-93 between the LAAYK INT and the HELON fix.
    T-218: T-218 is a proposed new route that would extend between the 
Stonyfork, PA (SFK), VOR/DME and the Sparta, NJ, VORTAC (SAX). T-218

[[Page 38238]]

would replace V-126 between SFK and SAX.
    T-221: T-221 is a proposed new route that would extend between the 
MAZIE, PA, fix and the Albany, NY, VORTAC (ALB). T-221 would overlie V-
149 between the MAZIE fix and Binghamton, NY (CFB).
    T-291: is a newly established route to become effective August 22, 
2013 (78 FR 29615, May 21, 2013), extending between the LOUIE, MD, fix 
and the Harrisburg, PA, VORTAC (HAR). After T-291 becomes effective, 
this proposal would further extend the route northward between HAR and 
ALB. The extended route would overlie V-31 to Selinsgrove, PA (SEG), 
then proceed direct to MIP, and from MIP it would replace V-449 by way 
of the LAAYK WP, terminating at ALB.
    T-295: T-295 is a newly established route to become effective 
August 22, 2013 (78 FR 29615, May 21, 2013), extending between the 
LOUIE, MD, fix and the Lancaster, PA, VORTAC (LRP). After T-295 becomes 
effective, this proposal would further extend the route northward to 
the Princeton, ME, VOR/DME (PNN). T-295 would overlie V-93 from LRP 
through Wilkes-Barre, PA (LVZ), to the LAAYK WP and then would replace 
V-408 from LAAYK to the SAGES, NY, INT/WP where it would turn and 
overlie V-292 until the SASHA, MA, INT/WP. T-295 would then continue 
northbound overlying V-93 to PNN.
    Where new navigation aid radials are cited in a proposed route 
description, below, both True and Magnetic degrees are shown. 
Otherwise, only True degrees are stated.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004; high altitude RNAV 
routes (Q) are published in paragraph 2006; VOR Federal airways are 
published in paragraph 6010(a); and low altitude RNAV routes (T) are 
published in paragraph 6011, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.9W dated 
August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated 
by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet routes, Q routes, VOR Federal 
airways and T routes 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 
only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified 
that this proposed rule, when promulgated, does 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 necessary to preserve the safe 
and efficient flow of air traffic and to advance the use of Performance 
Based Navigation technology.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
