ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment. AGENCY: This action makes an editorial change to the legal description of VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airway V–374 to reverse the order points listed in the route description. This action is simply to comply with the standard format for describing routes and does not alter the alignment of the airway. DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, February 6, 2014. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul Gallant, Airspace Policy 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: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES Background Airway and route legal descriptions are published in FAA Order 7400.9X, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points. Current format guidelines for these legal descriptions require that the order of points in a description be listed from ‘‘west-to-east’’ or from ‘‘south-tonorth,’’ as applicable. The description for V–374 lists the points from ‘‘east-towest.’’ This rule simply reverses the order of the points listed in Order 7400.9X to a ‘‘west-to-east’’ format for standardization. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by reversing the order of points listed in the legal description of Domestic VOR Federal Airway V–374 to comply with the standard route description format. The change does not alter the current alignment of V–374 and the airway track is correct on aeronautical charts. Since this action merely involves an editorial change in the legal description VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:14 Nov 29, 2013 Jkt 232001 of VOR Federal airway V–374 to standardize the format, and does not involve a change in the dimensions or operating requirements of the affected route, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. 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 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 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 is merely an editorial change of the legal description of V–374 to comply with existing administrative format procedures. Domestic VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9X, dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal Airway listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 311a. This airspace action consists of editorial changes only and is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 72005 no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

Amendment of VOR Federal Airway V-45, North Carolina

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

[[Page 72006]]


ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

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

SUMMARY: This action amends the legal description of VHF 
Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airway V-45 to update the name of a 
navigation aid used in the route description. This action is simply to 
comply with standard formatting for describing routes and does not 
alter the alignment of the airway.

DATES: Effective Date: 0901 UTC, February 6, 2014. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and 
publication of conforming amendments.

Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591;

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 to update the legal description of a portion of VOR Federal 
Airway V-45 by replacing the words ``Hickory, NC, 049[deg]'' with 
``Pulaski, VA, 147[deg].'' The ``Hickory VOR/DME'' was renamed the 
``Barretts Mountain VOR/DME,'' but the V-45 description was never 
updated. This action, instead, replaces the Hickory 049[deg] radial 
with the Pulaski, VA, VORTAC 147[deg] radial. The intersection of the 
Greensboro 334[deg] and the Pulaski 147[deg] radials form the exact 
same point as was previously defined by the Hickory 049[deg] radial. 
This editorial change does not alter the current alignment of V-45 and 
the airway track remains correct on aeronautical charts.
    Since this action merely involves an editorial change to update the 
legal description of VOR Federal airway V-45, and does not involve any 
change in the alignment or operating requirements of the affected 
route, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) 
are unnecessary.
    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 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 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 updates the legal description of an airway in the southeastern 
United States.
    Domestic VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of 
FAA Order 7400.9X, dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 
2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR 
Federal Airway listed in this document will be published subsequently 
in the Order.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, 
paragraph 311a. This airspace action consists of an editorial change 
only and is not expected to cause any potentially significant 
environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that 
warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
