VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:40 Jun 11, 2020 Jkt 250001 Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend 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. Background The upcoming decommissioning of the Campbell Lake NDB (CMQ) will require removal of Federal Colored airways A–7 and G–11, and amendment of A–1 to remove associated airway segments. Colored Federal airway A–7 has only one segment that runs from the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB; to the Mineral Creek, AK, NDB. The airway is seldom used and can be mitigated by utilizing V–481, or T–226, to the Johnstone Point, AK, Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Radio Range (VOR); then V–319, or T–269 to the Anchorage, AK, VOR. Colored Federal airway G–11 navigates aircraft from the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB, to the Glennallen, AK, NDB, and ends at the Nabesna, AK, NDB. The portion of the airway from the Glennallen, AK, NDB to the Nebesna, AK, NDB is not affected by the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB, however, due to the planned decommissioning of the Glennallen, AK, NDB, this section will also be removed. Loss of this airway can be mitigated by utilizing V–456 to the Big Lake, AK, VOR, to the Gulkana, AK, VOR, then to the Northway, AK, VOR. Furthermore, there is a proposal to realign Federal airway V–456 to match the current route of G–11, which allows for a lower Minimum En Route Altitude for pilots to navigate. This will give pilots an option to navigate at an altitude that does not require the use of supplemental oxygen, since the anticipated MEA will be 9,000 feet Mean Sea Level. Colored Federal airway A–1 will require removal of the segment between the Orca Bay, AK, NDB and the Takotna River, AK, NDB. Loss of this section can be mitigated by utilizing V–319 or T– 269 from the Johnstone Point, AK, VOR to the Anchorage, AK, VOR, then V–440 or T–246 to the McGrath, AK, VOR. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 35819 (14 CFR) part 71 to remove Colored Federal airways A–7 and G–11, and amend Colored Federal airway A–1. The proposed Colored Federal airway actions are described below. A–7: A–7 currently extends between the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB and the Mineral Creek, AK, NDB. This action proposes to remove the entire route. G–11: G–11 currently extends between the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB and the Nabesna, AK, NDB. This action proposes to remove the entire route. A–1: A–1 currently extends from the Abbotsford, BC, Canada, NDB and the Fort Davis, AK, NDB. The FAA proposes to remove the segment between the Orca Bay, AK, NDB and the Takotna River, AK, NDB. The unaffected portions of the existing route would remain as charted. The portion within Canada is excluded. Colored Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009 of FAA Order 7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Colored 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. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; reopening of comment period. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (Commission) is proposing to amend the conditions in Commission regulation 3.10(c) under which a person located outside of the United States engaged in the activity of a commodity pool operator (CPO; each person located outside of the United States a non-U.S. CPO) in connection with commodity interest transactions on behalf of persons located outside the United States (collectively, an offshore commodity pool or offshore pool) would qualify for an exemption from CPO registration and regulation with respect to that offshore pool. Specifically, through amendments to Commission regulation 3.10(c), the Commission is proposing that non-U.S. CPOs may claim an exemption from registration with respect to its qualifying offshore commodity pools, while maintaining another exemption from registration, relying on an exclusion, or registering as a CPO with respect to the operation of other commodity pools. The Commission is also proposing to add a safe harbor by which a non-U.S. CPO of an offshore commodity pool may rely upon the proposed exemption in Commission regulation 3.10(c) if they satisfy enumerated factors related to the operation of the offshore commodity pool. Additionally, the Commission is proposing to permit certain U.S. control affiliates of a non-U.S. CPO to contribute capital to such CPO’s offshore pools as part of the initial capitalization without rendering the non-U.S. CPO ineligible for the exemption from registration under Commission regulation 3.10.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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

Background

    The upcoming decommissioning of the Campbell Lake NDB (CMQ) will 
require removal of Federal Colored airways A-7 and G-11, and amendment 
of A-1 to remove associated airway segments.
    Colored Federal airway A-7 has only one segment that runs from the 
Campbell Lake, AK, NDB; to the Mineral Creek, AK, NDB. The airway is 
seldom used and can be mitigated by utilizing V-481, or T-226, to the 
Johnstone Point, AK, Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Radio Range 
(VOR); then V-319, or T-269 to the Anchorage, AK, VOR.
    Colored Federal airway G-11 navigates aircraft from the Campbell 
Lake, AK, NDB, to the Glennallen, AK, NDB, and ends at the Nabesna, AK, 
NDB. The portion of the airway from the Glennallen, AK, NDB to the 
Nebesna, AK, NDB is not affected by the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB, 
however, due to the planned decommissioning of the Glennallen, AK, NDB, 
this section will also be removed. Loss of this airway can be mitigated 
by utilizing V-456 to the Big Lake, AK, VOR, to the Gulkana, AK, VOR, 
then to the Northway, AK, VOR. Furthermore, there is a proposal to 
realign Federal airway V-456 to match the current route of G-11, which 
allows for a lower Minimum En Route Altitude for pilots to navigate. 
This will give pilots an option to navigate at an altitude that does 
not require the use of supplemental oxygen, since the anticipated MEA 
will be 9,000 feet Mean Sea Level.
    Colored Federal airway A-1 will require removal of the segment 
between the Orca Bay, AK, NDB and the Takotna River, AK, NDB. Loss of 
this section can be mitigated by utilizing V-319 or T-269 from the 
Johnstone Point, AK, VOR to the Anchorage, AK, VOR, then V-440 or T-246 
to the McGrath, AK, VOR.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to remove Colored Federal airways A-7 and 
G-11, and amend Colored Federal airway A-1. The proposed Colored 
Federal airway actions are described below.
    A-7: A-7 currently extends between the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB and 
the Mineral Creek, AK, NDB. This action proposes to remove the entire 
route.
    G-11: G-11 currently extends between the Campbell Lake, AK, NDB and 
the Nabesna, AK, NDB. This action proposes to remove the entire route.
    A-1: A-1 currently extends from the Abbotsford, BC, Canada, NDB and 
the Fort Davis, AK, NDB. The FAA proposes to remove the segment between 
the Orca Bay, AK, NDB and the Takotna River, AK, NDB. The unaffected 
portions of the existing route would remain as charted. The portion 
within Canada is excluded.
    Colored Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009 of FAA 
Order 7400.11D dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 2019, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Colored 
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.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed 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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
