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-2018-1026 (83 FR 67162; December 28, 2018) 
to remove jet route J-147 due to the planned decommissioning of the 
Greenbrier, WV, VOR/DME navigation aid. Interested parties were invited 
to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments 
on the proposal. No comments were received.
    Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 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 jet route listed in this 
document will be subsequently removed from 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 removing jet route J-147 which currently extends between the 
Beckley, WV, VOR/DME and the Casanova, VA, VORTAC. This action is 
necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the Greenbrier, WV, 
VOR/DME which provides navigation guidance for segments of J-147. 
Alternative routing through the area is available by using the adjacent 
jet routes J-42 or J-213.

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 airspace action of removing jet 
route J-147 between the Beckley, WV, VOR/DME and the Casanova, VA, 
VORTAC has no potential to cause any significant environmental impacts, 
and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment. Therefore, this airspace action has been 
categorically excluded from further environmental impact review in 
accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and its 
implementing regulations at 40 CFR parts 1500-1508, 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). In accordance with 
FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5-2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, 
this action has been reviewed for factors and circumstances in which a 
normally categorically excluded action may have a significant 
environmental impact requiring further analysis, and it is determined 
that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of 
an environmental assessment.
