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 National Airspace System as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. E:\FR\FM\10JNR1.SGM 10JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 111 / Monday, June 10, 2019 / Rules and Regulations FAA–2018–1073 in the Federal Register (84 FR 3730; February 13, 2019), amending VOR Federal airways V–8, V–92, V–214, and V–438 due to planned decommissioning of the Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME navigation aid.

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 Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending the descriptions of VOR Federal airways V–8, V–92, V–214, and V–438, due to the planned decommissioning of the Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below. V–8: V–8 currently consists of two sections with a gap in between. The first section extends between the intersection of radials from the Seal Beach, CA, VORTAC, and the Ventura, CA, VOR/ DME (i.e., the charted DOYLE, CA, fix), and the Flag City, OH, VORTAC. The second section extends between the Briggs, OH, VOR/DME, and the Washington, DC, VOR/DME. The FAA is removing the airway segments that extend between the Briggs, OH, VOR/ DME, and the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC. As amended, that portion of V–8 between the DOYLE, CA, fix, and the Flag City, OH, VORTAC remains unchanged. The second section of the airway extends between the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC and the Washington, DC, VOR/DME. V–92: V–92 currently consists of two sections. The first section extends between the Chicago Heights, IL, VORTAC and the Goshen, IN, VORTAC. The second section extends between the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME and the Armel, VA, VOR/DME. This action VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:41 Jun 07, 2019 Jkt 247001 removes the airway segments between the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME and the Armel, VA, VOR/DME. As amended, V–92 extends between Chicago Heights, IL, and Goshen, IN; and between Newcomerstown, OH and Bellaire, OH. V–214: V–214 currently extends, in two sections, between the Kokomo, IN, VORTAC and the Muncie, IN, VOR/ DME; and between the intersection of radials from the Appleton, OH, VORTAC and the Zanesville, OH, VOR/ DME (i.e., the charted GLOOM, OH, fix) and the Teterboro, NJ, VOR/DME. This action removes the segments between the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME and the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC. As amended, V–214 consists of three separate sections: The first section extends between Kokomo, IN and Goshen, IN (no change from current configuration). The second section extends between the intersection of radials from the Appleton, OH, VORTAC and the Zanesville, OH, VOR/ DME, and the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME. The third section extends between the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC and the Teterboro, NJ, VOR/DME. V–438: V–438 currently extends between the Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME and the intersection of radials from the Hagerstown, MD, VOR, and the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC (i.e., the charted LUCKE, VA, fix). This action removes the airway segment between the Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME and the Hagerstown, MD, VOR. The amended V–438 extends between the Hagerstown, MD, VOR, and the LUCKE, VA, fix. 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. 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 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 of modifying VOR Federal airways V–8, V–92, V–214, and V–438 PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 26747 due to the planned decommissioning of the Grantsville, MD VOR/DME, qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5– 6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

The large number of SIAPs, PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 their complex nature, and the need for a special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the complete description of each SIAP contained on FAA form documents is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR sections, and specifies the SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs with their applicable effective dates. This amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the procedure and the amendment number. Availability and Summary of Material Incorporated by Reference The material incorporated by reference is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section. The material incorporated by reference describes SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs as identified in the amendatory language for part 97 of this final rule. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as amended in the transmittal. For safety and timeliness of change considerations, this amendment incorporates only specific changes contained for each SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP as modified by FDC permanent NOTAMs. The SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, as modified by FDC permanent NOTAM, and contained in this amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to SIAPs and Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific conditions existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in this rule have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC NOTAM as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances that created the need for these SIAP and Takeoff Minimums and ODP amendments require making them effective in less than 30 days. Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs, Takeoff Minimums and ODPs, and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by amending the descriptions of VOR Federal airways V-8, V-92, 
V-214, and V-438, due to the planned decommissioning of the 
Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined 
below.
    V-8: V-8 currently consists of two sections with a gap in between. 
The first section extends between the intersection of radials from the 
Seal Beach, CA, VORTAC, and the Ventura, CA, VOR/DME (i.e., the charted 
DOYLE, CA, fix), and the Flag City, OH, VORTAC. The second section 
extends between the Briggs, OH, VOR/DME, and the Washington, DC, VOR/
DME. The FAA is removing the airway segments that extend between the 
Briggs, OH, VOR/DME, and the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC. As amended, that 
portion of V-8 between the DOYLE, CA, fix, and the Flag City, OH, 
VORTAC remains unchanged. The second section of the airway extends 
between the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC and the Washington, DC, VOR/DME.
    V-92: V-92 currently consists of two sections. The first section 
extends between the Chicago Heights, IL, VORTAC and the Goshen, IN, 
VORTAC. The second section extends between the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/
DME and the Armel, VA, VOR/DME. This action removes the airway segments 
between the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME and the Armel, VA, VOR/DME. As 
amended, V-92 extends between Chicago Heights, IL, and Goshen, IN; and 
between Newcomerstown, OH and Bellaire, OH.
    V-214: V-214 currently extends, in two sections, between the 
Kokomo, IN, VORTAC and the Muncie, IN, VOR/DME; and between the 
intersection of radials from the Appleton, OH, VORTAC and the 
Zanesville, OH, VOR/DME (i.e., the charted GLOOM, OH, fix) and the 
Teterboro, NJ, VOR/DME. This action removes the segments between the 
Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME and the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC. As amended, V-
214 consists of three separate sections:
    The first section extends between Kokomo, IN and Goshen, IN (no 
change from current configuration). The second section extends between 
the intersection of radials from the Appleton, OH, VORTAC and the 
Zanesville, OH, VOR/DME, and the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME. The third 
section extends between the Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC and the Teterboro, 
NJ, VOR/DME.
    V-438: V-438 currently extends between the Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME 
and the intersection of radials from the Hagerstown, MD, VOR, and the 
Martinsburg, WV, VORTAC (i.e., the charted LUCKE, VA, fix). This action 
removes the airway segment between the Grantsville, MD, VOR/DME and the 
Hagerstown, MD, VOR. The amended V-438 extends between the Hagerstown, 
MD, VOR, and the LUCKE, VA, fix.

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. 
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 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 of modifying VOR Federal 
airways V-8, V-92, V-214, and V-438 due to the planned decommissioning 
of the Grantsville, MD VOR/DME, qualifies for categorical exclusion 
under the National Environmental Policy Act and its implementing 
regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance with FAA Order 
1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5-
6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact 
review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace 
areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 14 CFR part 71, 
Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic 
Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action is not 
expected to result in any potentially significant environmental 
impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5-2 regarding 
Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for 
factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded 
action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further 
analysis. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances 
exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or 
environmental impact study.
