Proposed Amendment of E Airspace; Flippin, AR, 60789-60791 [2018-25706]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 27, 2018 / Proposed Rules air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Background The FAA is planning decommissioning activities for the Priest, CA, VOR in 2019 as one of the candidate VORs identified for discontinuance by the FAA’s VOR MON program and listed in the final policy statement notice, ‘‘Provision of Navigation Services for the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) Transition to PerformanceBased Navigation (PBN) (Plan for Establishing a VOR Minimum Operational Network),’’ published in the Federal Register of July 26, 2016 (81 FR 48694), Docket No. FAA–2011–1082. The ATS route effected by the Clovis VOR decommissioning is V–485. RNAV route T–333 is proposed to be amended to overcome the gap to V–485. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying RNAV route T–333. The proposed route change is outlined below. T–333: T–333 currently extends between the KLIDE, CA, FIX and the TIPRE, CA, waypoint. The FAA proposes to extend the route to the southeast by 130 miles to connect to the Fellows, CA, VOR/DME NAVAID, which is the new proposed starting point of the RNAV route. The extension is needed for navigation in the low altitude structure as V–485 is being gapped in a separate rulemaking action due to the decommissioning of the Priest, CA, VOR. The amendment will remove the KLIDE, CA, FIX due to turn criteria for RNAV procedure development in order to rejoin T–333 at the BORED, CA, FIX. United States RNAV Routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.11C dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV Route 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.

The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by: Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Marion County Regional Airport, Flippin, AR, to within a 6.5mile radius (increased from a 6.4-mile radius); removing the Flippin VOR/DME from the airspace legal description; removing the extension east of the airport; removing the city associated with the airport from the airspace legal description to comply with FAA Order 7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Baxter County Airport (previously Baxter County Regional Airport), Mountain Home, AR, by removing the extension south of the airport associated with the Flippin VOR/DME; removing the city associated with the airport from the airspace legal description to comply with FAA Order 7400.2L; and updating the name of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Flippin VOR, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR MON Program.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective 
September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by:
    Amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Marion County Regional Airport, Flippin, AR, to within a 
6.5-mile radius (increased from a 6.4-mile radius); removing the 
Flippin VOR/DME from the airspace legal description; removing the 
extension east of the airport; removing the city associated with the 
airport from the airspace legal description to comply with FAA Order 
7400.2L, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and updating the 
geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    And amending the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Baxter County Airport (previously Baxter County 
Regional Airport), Mountain Home, AR, by removing the extension south 
of the airport associated with the Flippin VOR/DME; removing the city 
associated with the airport from the airspace legal description to 
comply with FAA Order 7400.2L; and updating the name of the airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the 
decommissioning of the Flippin VOR, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of 
the VOR MON Program.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 
2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR

[[Page 60791]]

71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be 
published subsequently 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, 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would 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.
