SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 May 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 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 would modify the route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace System. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0002 in the Federal Register (85 FR 3299; January 21, 2020), amending VOR Federal airways V–125, V–178, V–313, and V– 429 in the vicinity of Cape Girardeau, MO, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. FAA– 2020–0008 in the Federal Register (85 FR 26601; May 5, 2020), amending VOR Federal airway V–178 by removing the airway segment between the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME and the New Hope, KY, VOR/DME. The airway amendment, effective July 16, 2020, is included in this rule. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, 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.

The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V– 125, V–178, V–313, and V–429. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below. V–125: V–125 extends between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and the St Louis, MO, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC). The NIKEL fix in the airway description is amended to describe it as the intersection of the Farmington, MO, VORTAC 046° and Marion, IL, VOR/DME 282° radials. Additionally, the airway segment overlying the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and the intersection of the Farmington, MO, VORTAC 046° and Marion, IL, VOR/DME 282° radials (NIKEL fix) is removed. The unaffected portion of the existing airway remain as charted. V–178: V–178 extends between the Hallsville, MO, VORTAC and the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME; and between the New Hope, KY, VOR/DME and the Bluefield, WV, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME between the Farmington, MO, VORTAC and the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–313: V–313 extends between the Malden, MO, VORTAC and the Pontiac, IL, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME between the Malden, MO, VORTAC and the Centralia, IL, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–429: V–429 extends between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and the Bible Grove, IL, VORTAC; and between the Champaign, IL, VORTAC and the Joliet, IL, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and the Marion, IL, VOR/DME is removed.

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 would modify the route structure as necessary to 
preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National 
Airspace System.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for Docket 
No. FAA-2020-0002 in the Federal Register (85 FR 3299; January 21, 
2020), amending VOR Federal airways V-125, V-178, V-313, and V-429 in 
the vicinity of Cape Girardeau, MO, due to the planned decommissioning 
of the VOR portion of the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
    Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0008 in the Federal Register (85 FR 26601; May 5, 2020), 
amending VOR Federal airway V-178 by removing the airway segment 
between the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME and the New Hope, KY, VOR/DME. The 
airway amendment, effective July 16, 2020, is included in this rule.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 
7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, 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.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 
2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D 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-125, V-178, V-313, and V-
429. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Cape 
Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR 
Federal airway changes are outlined below.
    V-125: V-125 extends between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and 
the St Louis, MO, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC). The NIKEL fix 
in the airway description is amended to describe it as the intersection 
of the Farmington, MO, VORTAC 046[deg] and Marion, IL, VOR/DME 282[deg] 
radials. Additionally, the airway segment overlying the Cape Girardeau, 
MO, VOR/DME between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and the 
intersection of the Farmington, MO, VORTAC 046[deg] and Marion, IL, 
VOR/DME 282[deg] radials (NIKEL fix) is removed. The unaffected portion 
of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-178: V-178 extends between the Hallsville, MO, VORTAC and the 
Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME; and between the New Hope, KY, VOR/DME and the 
Bluefield, WV, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Cape 
Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME between the Farmington, MO, VORTAC and the 
Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the 
existing airway remain as charted.
    V-313: V-313 extends between the Malden, MO, VORTAC and the 
Pontiac, IL, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Cape Girardeau, 
MO, VOR/DME between the Malden, MO, VORTAC and the Centralia, IL, 
VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway 
remain as charted.
    V-429: V-429 extends between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and 
the Bible Grove, IL, VORTAC; and between the Champaign, IL, VORTAC and 
the Joliet, IL, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Cape 
Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME between the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME and the 
Marion, IL, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing 
airway remain as charted.
    All radials in the route descriptions below are stated in True 
degrees.

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-125, V-178, V-313, and V-429, due to the planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/DME 
NAVAID, 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.
