The route changes are outlined below. J–65: J–65 currently extends between the San Antonio, TX, VORTAC to the Seattle, WA, VORTAC. The FAA is removing the segments between the Shafter, CA, VORTAC and the Sacramento, CA, VORTAC, causing a gap in the route. The route stops at the Shafter, CA, VORTAC and resumes at the Sacramento, CA, VORTAC. The unaffected portion of the existing route will remain as charted. J–110: J–110 currently extends between the Oakland, VA, VOR/DME to the Coyle, NJ, VORTAC. The airway segment between the Oakland, CA, VOR/DME and the Boulder City, NV, VORTAC is removed. The route now starts at the Boulder City, NV, VORTAC and extends to the Coyle, NJ, VORTAC. The unaffected portion of the existing route will remain as charted. V–23: V–23 currently extends between the Mission Bay, CA, VORTAC and the Whatcom, WA, VORTAC and then to the Canadian Border (approximately 7 miles northwest of the Whatcom, WA, VORTAC).

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 proposed 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 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 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 
feet above the surface at Cortland County Airport-Chase Field, 
Cortland, NY; Elmira/Corning Regional Airport, Elmira/Corning, NY; 
Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, Ithaca, NY; and Tri-Cities Airport, 
Endicott, NY to support standard instrument approach procedures for IFR 
operations at these airports.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 25497, June 3, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0347 to 
establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the 
surface at Cortland County Airport-Chase Field, Cortland, NY; Elmira/
Corning Regional Airport, Elmira/Corning, NY; Ithaca Tompkins Regional 
Airport, Ithaca, NY; and Tri-Cities Airport, Endicott, NY. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Two comments 
were received supporting the proposal, as well as displaying concerns 
on how the airspace may affect the commercial traffic flow to larger 
airports in the area. The FAA has determined that this airspace will 
have no negative effect on IFR operations in the area, as Class E 
airspace only restricts aircraft that are flying using visual flight 
rules. This Class E airspace protects aircraft departing and landing 
using IFR procedures.
    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 part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently 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

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 7-mile radius of Cortland County Airport-
Chase Field, Cortland, NY; within a 12.5-mile radius of Elmira/Corning 
Regional Airport, Elmira/Corning, NY; within a 9.5-mile radius of 
Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, Ithaca, NY; and within an 8-mile 
radius of Tri-Cities Airport, Endicott, NY, providing the controlled 
airspace required to support the RNAV (GPS) standard instrument 
approach procedures for IFR operations at these airports.

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 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 qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no
