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 air traffic service route structure in the eastern United States to maintain the efficient flow of air traffic. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2018–1022 in the Federal Register (83 FR 67163; December 28, 2018) amending VOR Federal airways V–115, V–184, V–188, and V–542.

FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the descriptions of VOR Federal airways V–115, V–184, V–188, and V–542, due to the planned decommissioning of the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC. The route changes are described below. V–115: V–115 currently extends between the Crestview, FL, VORTAC and the Buffalo, NY, VOR/DME. This change removes the route segments between the Franklin, PA, VOR and the Buffalo VOR/DME. The amended route E:\FR\FM\29JYR1.SGM 29JYR1 36468 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 145 / Monday, July 29, 2019 / Rules and Regulations extends between Crestview, FL, and Franklin, PA. V–184: V–184 currently extends between the Erie, PA, VORTAC and the intersection of radials from the Kennedy, NY, VOR/DME and the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC. This change removes the segments between the Erie, PA, VORTAC and the Philipsburg, PA, VORTAC. The amended route extends between Philipsburg, PA, and the intersection of radials from the Kennedy, NY, VOR/DME and the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC. V–188: V–188 currently extends between the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC and the Groton, CT, VOR/DME. This change removes the segment between the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC and the Slate Run, PA, VORTAC.

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 because 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 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–115, V–184, V–188, and V– 542 in the eastern United States due to the planned decommissioning of the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and its agency-specific implementing regulations in FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures at paragraph 5–6.5a, which categorically excludes from full VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:51 Jul 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points.

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 air traffic service route structure in the 
eastern United States to maintain the efficient flow of air traffic.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2018-1022 in the Federal Register (83 FR 67163; December 28, 2018) 
amending VOR Federal airways V-115, V-184, V-188, and V-542. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
    Domestic 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 will 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

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying the descriptions of VOR Federal airways V-115, V-
184, V-188, and V-542, due to the planned decommissioning of the 
Tidioute, PA, VORTAC. The route changes are described below.
    V-115: V-115 currently extends between the Crestview, FL, VORTAC 
and the Buffalo, NY, VOR/DME. This change removes the route segments 
between the Franklin, PA, VOR and the Buffalo VOR/DME. The amended 
route

[[Page 36468]]

extends between Crestview, FL, and Franklin, PA.
    V-184: V-184 currently extends between the Erie, PA, VORTAC and the 
intersection of radials from the Kennedy, NY, VOR/DME and the 
Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC. This change removes the segments between the 
Erie, PA, VORTAC and the Philipsburg, PA, VORTAC. The amended route 
extends between Philipsburg, PA, and the intersection of radials from 
the Kennedy, NY, VOR/DME and the Robbinsville, NJ, VORTAC.
    V-188: V-188 currently extends between the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC and 
the Groton, CT, VOR/DME. This change removes the segment between the 
Tidioute, PA, VORTAC and the Slate Run, PA, VORTAC. The amended route 
extends between Slate Run, PA and Groton, CT.
    V-542: V-542 currently extends between the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC and 
the Lebanon, NH, VOR/DME. This change removes the segments between the 
Tidioute, PA, VORTAC and the Elmira, NY, VOR/DME. The amended route 
extends between Elmira, NY and Lebanon, NH.

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 because 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 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-115, V-184, V-188, and V-542 in the eastern United States due 
to the planned decommissioning of the Tidioute, PA, VORTAC qualifies 
for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act 
and its agency-specific implementing regulations in FAA Order 1050.1F, 
``Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures at paragraph 5-6.5a, 
which categorically excludes from full environmental impact review 
rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, 
airways, routes, and reporting points. Therefore, this airspace action 
is not expected to result in any significant environmental impacts. 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.
