VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:54 Jun 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 route structure in the National Airspace System as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic. The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA–2018–0769 (83 FR 41021; August 17, 2018) to amend VOR Federal airways V–18, V– 102, and V–278 due to the planned decommissioning of the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 VOR Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018.

Frm 00031 The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V– 18, V–102, and V–278. The planned decommissioning of the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC has made these actions necessary. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below. V–18: V–18 extends between the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC and the Charleston, SC, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC and the Millsap, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–102: V–102 extends between the Salt Flat, TX, VORTAC and the Wichita Falls, TX, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Lubbock, TX, VORTAC and the Wichita Falls, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–278: V–278 extends between the Texico, NM, VORTAC and the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Plainview, TX, VOR/DME and the Bowie, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. Regulatory Notices and Analyses History PO 00000 27937 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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–18, V–102, and V–278 near Guthrie, TX, 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 E:\FR\FM\17JNR1.SGM 17JNR1 27938 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 116 / Monday, June 17, 2019 / Rules and Regulations 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.

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 route structure in 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 in the Federal 
Register for Docket No. FAA-2018-0769 (83 FR 41021; August 17, 2018) to 
amend VOR Federal airways V-18, V-102, and V-278 due to the planned 
decommissioning of the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 VOR Federal airways 
listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends 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 Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V-18, V-102, and V-278. The 
planned decommissioning of the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC has made these 
actions necessary. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below.
    V-18: V-18 extends between the Guthrie, TX, VORTAC and the 
Charleston, SC, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Guthrie, TX, 
VORTAC and the Millsap, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions 
of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-102: V-102 extends between the Salt Flat, TX, VORTAC and the 
Wichita Falls, TX, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Lubbock, TX, 
VORTAC and the Wichita Falls, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected 
portions of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-278: V-278 extends between the Texico, NM, VORTAC and the Vulcan, 
AL, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Plainview, TX, VOR/DME and 
the Bowie, TX, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the 
existing airway remain as charted.

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-18, V-102, and V-278 near Guthrie, TX, 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

[[Page 27938]]

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.
