Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Background The Atlantic Coast Route Project (ACRP) is the first phase of FAA’s plan to implement a PBN route structure across the U.S. It would consist primarily of North/South oriented, highaltitude RNAV routes (Q routes) extending from New England to Southern Florida and linking to the Caribbean. The eastern seaboard is an E:\FR\FM\05JAP1.SGM 05JAP1 1277 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 3 / Thursday, January 5, 2017 / Proposed Rules area containing heavily traveled and constricted airspace. ACRP aims to couple the stakeholder desire for route flexibility with the route structure needed to support higher air traffic demand levels. As a continuation of FAA’s commitment to streamline the National Airspace System (NAS) and realize the benefits of PBN advancements, ARCP seeks to establish a framework for the effective transition away from the less efficient jet route system that is constricted by the current ground-based navigation infrastructure. The ACRP, itself, would be implemented in two phases. The first phase would establish routes primarily in airspace in the northeastern U.S. that is controlled by Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) and New York ARTCC. Phase 2 would implement new routes from south of New York ARTCC’s airspace to the Caribbean area through separate rulemaking action. Key guidelines driving the scope of the ACRP effort include: Reduce the overall route structure; Reduce ATC facility sector complexity and controller workload; Reduce flying miles; and Maintain or improve ATC facility sector throughput. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish 12 new Qroutes along the Atlantic Coast, in the northeastern U.S. The new routes, designated Q–75, Q–97, Q–167, Q–220, Q–411, Q–419, Q–430, Q–437, Q–439, Q–445, Q–450 and Q–479, would improve NAS efficiency and facilitate the transition from the current jet route system along the Atlantic Coast of the U.S. The proposed routes’ end points are listed below. Full route descriptions are in ‘‘The Proposed Amendment’’ section of this notice. Q–75: The route would extend between Greensboro, NC, and the Boston, MA, area. Q–97: The route would extend between the HEADI, NJ WP, and the Qubis Canada WP just north of the Maine border. Q–167: The route would extend between the YAZUU fix (off the coast of New Jersey) and the SSOXS fix south of Boston, MA. Q–220: The route would extend between the RIFLE fix (south of Long Island, NY) and the LARIE WP over Cape Cod, MA. Q–411: The route would extend between the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC and the FOXWD WP, CT. Q–419: The route would extend between the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC and the Deer Park, NY VOR/DME. Q–430: The route would extend between the COPES, PA, fix and the Nantucket, MA, VOR/DME. Q–437: The route would extend between the VILLS, NJ, fix and the KOSPE, VT, fix. Q–439: The route would extend between the BRIGS, NJ, fix and the Presque Isle, ME, VOR/DME. Q–445: The route would extend between the BRIGS, NJ, fix and the KYSKY, NY, fix (south of Long Island, NY). Q–450: The route would extend between the HNNAH, NJ, fix and the Deer Park, NY, VOR/DME. Q–479: The route would extend between the LEEAH, NJ, fix and the PONCT, NY, WP. In addition to adding the 12 new QRoutes, the FAA proposes to amend existing route Q–480 by adding two new waypoints (WP), KYLOH, NH and BEEKN, ME, along the current route between the Barnes, MA, VORTAC and the Kennebunk, ME, VOR/DME. This would provide connectivity and facilitate transitions between Q–480 and the new routes Q–97 and Q–439. RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA Order 7400.11A dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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.

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 expands the availability of area navigation routes in 
the northeastern United States to enhance the efficient flow of air 
traffic.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.11A 
lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service 
routes, and reporting points.

Background

    The Atlantic Coast Route Project (ACRP) is the first phase of FAA's 
plan to implement a PBN route structure across the U.S. It would 
consist primarily of North/South oriented, high-altitude RNAV routes (Q 
routes) extending from New England to Southern Florida and linking to 
the Caribbean. The eastern seaboard is an

[[Page 1277]]

area containing heavily traveled and constricted airspace.
    ACRP aims to couple the stakeholder desire for route flexibility 
with the route structure needed to support higher air traffic demand 
levels. As a continuation of FAA's commitment to streamline the 
National Airspace System (NAS) and realize the benefits of PBN 
advancements, ARCP seeks to establish a framework for the effective 
transition away from the less efficient jet route system that is 
constricted by the current ground-based navigation infrastructure.
    The ACRP, itself, would be implemented in two phases. The first 
phase would establish routes primarily in airspace in the northeastern 
U.S. that is controlled by Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center 
(ARTCC) and New York ARTCC. Phase 2 would implement new routes from 
south of New York ARTCC's airspace to the Caribbean area through 
separate rulemaking action.
    Key guidelines driving the scope of the ACRP effort include:
    Reduce the overall route structure;
    Reduce ATC facility sector complexity and controller workload;
    Reduce flying miles; and
    Maintain or improve ATC facility sector throughput.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish 12 new Q-routes along the 
Atlantic Coast, in the northeastern U.S. The new routes, designated Q-
75, Q-97, Q-167, Q-220, Q-411, Q-419, Q-430, Q-437, Q-439, Q-445, Q-450 
and Q-479, would improve NAS efficiency and facilitate the transition 
from the current jet route system along the Atlantic Coast of the U.S. 
The proposed routes' end points are listed below. Full route 
descriptions are in ``The Proposed Amendment'' section of this notice.
    Q-75: The route would extend between Greensboro, NC, and the 
Boston, MA, area.
    Q-97: The route would extend between the HEADI, NJ WP, and the 
Qubis Canada WP just north of the Maine border.
    Q-167: The route would extend between the YAZUU fix (off the coast 
of New Jersey) and the SSOXS fix south of Boston, MA.
    Q-220: The route would extend between the RIFLE fix (south of Long 
Island, NY) and the LARIE WP over Cape Cod, MA.
    Q-411: The route would extend between the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC 
and the FOXWD WP, CT.
    Q-419: The route would extend between the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC 
and the Deer Park, NY VOR/DME.
    Q-430: The route would extend between the COPES, PA, fix and the 
Nantucket, MA, VOR/DME.
    Q-437: The route would extend between the VILLS, NJ, fix and the 
KOSPE, VT, fix.
    Q-439: The route would extend between the BRIGS, NJ, fix and the 
Presque Isle, ME, VOR/DME.
    Q-445: The route would extend between the BRIGS, NJ, fix and the 
KYSKY, NY, fix (south of Long Island, NY).
    Q-450: The route would extend between the HNNAH, NJ, fix and the 
Deer Park, NY, VOR/DME.
    Q-479: The route would extend between the LEEAH, NJ, fix and the 
PONCT, NY, WP.
    In addition to adding the 12 new Q-Routes, the FAA proposes to 
amend existing route Q-480 by adding two new waypoints (WP), KYLOH, NH 
and BEEKN, ME, along the current route between the Barnes, MA, VORTAC 
and the Kennebunk, ME, VOR/DME. This would provide connectivity and 
facilitate transitions between Q-480 and the new routes Q-97 and Q-439.
    RNAV routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA Order 7400.11A 
dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is 
incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes listed in 
this document will be subsequently published in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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. 
It, therefore: (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 proposed 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.

Environmental Review

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