SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority for This Rulemaking 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 air traffic service route structure in the north central United States to maintain the efficient flow of air traffic. History During a biennial review of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport’s airspace the FAA identified that the airport’s name had been changed to Bob Hope Airport and the geographic coordinates were incorrect. This action updates the name and geographic coordinates to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database for the respective Class C airspace area. Class C airspace designations are published in paragraph 4000 of FAA Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class C airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Z, airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this final rule. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends the Class C airspace within which all aircraft operators are subject to operating rules and equipment requirements of Part 91 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (see 14 CFR VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:28 Sep 23, 2015 Jkt 235001 91.130). The name of the BurbankGlendale-Pasadena Airport is changed to Bob Hope Airport and the geographic coordinates are updated. This rule is meant to insure pilots do not confuse instructions provided to them by Air Traffic Control. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, altitudes, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore, (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. 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 is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment. 57519 Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(f), 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959–1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 [Amended] 2.

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 air traffic service route structure in the north central United States to maintain the efficient flow of air traffic. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:28 Sep 23, 2015 Jkt 235001 Background The Rule In 1969, the FAA published in the Federal Register a rule that established J–513 from the Lakehead, Ontario, Canada, VHF Omnidirection Range Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID) to the Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, VHF Omnidirection Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) NAVAID (34 FR 12133, July 19, 1969). The route, extending through a small portion of airspace over the north central United States, was established in response to a request from the Canadian Department of Transport advising they had an immediate requirement for a high level airway to be designated from Lakehead to Sudbury. When it was established, J–513 joined to Canadian high level airway No. HL–513. In 1970, the FAA published in the Federal Register a rule to amend J–513 (35 FR 3659, February 25, 1970). The amendment changed the name of the Lakehead, Ontario, Canada, VORTAC to Thunder Bay. As a result, the J–513 description was amended to reflect the route from the Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, VORTAC to the Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, VOR/DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. In November 2014, Canada removed the portions of J–513 in Canadian airspace as part of their WTM airspace redesign program; however, corresponding action for the portion of J–513 in United States airspace was not accomplished by the FAA. This disconnect led to the charted depiction of J–513 being removed from the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) high altitude enroute charts, but the legal description remained in FAA Order 7400.9 and the National Airspace System Repository (NASR). Since the basis for which J–513 was originally established no longer exists, the FAA is removing the route from 14 CFR part 71 and FAA Order 7400.9. Subsequently, the FAA will remove the route from the NASR database. The FAA is amending Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by removing jet route J–513. This action responds to the route changes made in Canadian airspace as part of Canada’s WTM airspace redesign project. This action removes a route that was put in place in accordance with a request from the Canadian Department of Transport, which traversed through Canadian and U.S. airspace. Canada has subsequently removed this route and the route no longer exists on aeronautical charts. Therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9Z dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this document will be subsequently removed in the Order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    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 air traffic service route structure in the 
north central United States to maintain the efficient flow of air 
traffic.

Background

    In 1969, the FAA published in the Federal Register a rule that 
established J-513 from the Lakehead, Ontario, Canada, VHF Omnidirection 
Range Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID) to the 
Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, VHF Omnidirection Range/Distance Measuring 
Equipment (VOR/DME) NAVAID (34 FR 12133, July 19, 1969). The route, 
extending through a small portion of airspace over the north central 
United States, was established in response to a request from the 
Canadian Department of Transport advising they had an immediate 
requirement for a high level airway to be designated from Lakehead to 
Sudbury. When it was established, J-513 joined to Canadian high level 
airway No. HL-513.
    In 1970, the FAA published in the Federal Register a rule to amend 
J-513 (35 FR 3659, February 25, 1970). The amendment changed the name 
of the Lakehead, Ontario, Canada, VORTAC to Thunder Bay. As a result, 
the J-513 description was amended to reflect the route from the Thunder 
Bay, Ontario, Canada, VORTAC to the Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, VOR/DME, 
excluding the airspace within Canada.
    In November 2014, Canada removed the portions of J-513 in Canadian 
airspace as part of their WTM airspace redesign program; however, 
corresponding action for the portion of J-513 in United States airspace 
was not accomplished by the FAA. This disconnect led to the charted 
depiction of J-513 being removed from the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) 
high altitude enroute charts, but the legal description remained in FAA 
Order 7400.9 and the National Airspace System Repository (NASR).
    Since the basis for which J-513 was originally established no 
longer exists, the FAA is removing the route from 14 CFR part 71 and 
FAA Order 7400.9. Subsequently, the FAA will remove the route from the 
NASR database.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.9Z, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 
2015. FAA Order 7400.9Z is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.9Z lists Class A, B, 
C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting 
points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 
CFR) part 71 by removing jet route J-513. This action responds to the 
route changes made in Canadian airspace as part of Canada's WTM 
airspace redesign project. This action removes a route that was put in 
place in accordance with a request from the Canadian Department of 
Transport, which traversed through Canadian and U.S. airspace. Canada 
has subsequently removed this route and the route no longer exists on 
aeronautical charts. Therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9Z 
dated August 6, 2015, and effective September 15, 2015, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this 
document will be subsequently removed in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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 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.

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 5-6.5a. This airspace action consists of modifying an airway 
and it is not expected to cause any potentially significant 
environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exists that 
warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.
