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 as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace System. E:\FR\FM\26JNR1.SGM 26JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 124 / Friday, June 26, 2020 / Rules and Regulations History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2019–0842 in the Federal Register (84 FR 67381; December 10, 2019), amending VOR Federal airways V–59, V–92, V–115, and V–117 due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME NAVAID.

As such, the state abbreviation for the NAVAID listed in the description should reflect the abbreviation ‘‘TN’’ instead of ‘‘GA’’. This editorial correction to the V–115 description is included in this action. The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V–59, V–92, V–115, and V–117. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway changes are described below. V–59: V–59 extends between the Pulaski, VA, VORTAC and the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME. The airway segment between the Parkersburg, WV, VOR/DME and the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted.

The airway segment between the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME and the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected portion of the existing airway remains as charted. V–115: V–115 extends between the Crestview, FL, VORTAC and the Franklin, PA, VOR/DME. The airway segment between the Parkersburg, WV, VORTAC and the Franklin, PA, VOR/ DME is removed. Additionally, an editorial correction changes the state abbreviation for the Choo Choo VORTAC listed in the description from ‘‘GA’’ to ‘‘TN’’. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–117: V–117 extends between the Parkersburg, WV, VORTAC and the intersection of the Bellaire, OH, VOR/ DME 044° radial and the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME 099° radial (WISKE fix). The WISKE fix in the airway description is amended to describe it as the intersection of the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME 044° and the Briggs, OH, VOR/DME 136° radials.

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. 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. In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action of modifying VOR Federal airways V–59, V–92, V–115, and V–117 in the vicinity of Newcomerstown, OH, due to the VOR portion of the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME being PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2019-0842 in the Federal Register (84 FR 67381; December 10, 2019), 
amending VOR Federal airways V-59, V-92, V-115, and V-117 due to the 
planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Newcomerstown, OH, 
VOR/DME NAVAID. Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No 
comments were received.
    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 airway 
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 7400.11D, 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.

Differences From the Proposal

    The Choo Choo VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) NAVAID listed in 
the V-115 description is actually located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As 
such, the state abbreviation for the NAVAID listed in the description 
should reflect the abbreviation ``TN'' instead of ``GA''. This 
editorial correction to the V-115 description is included in this 
action.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V-59, V-92, V-115, and V-117. 
The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Newcomerstown, 
OH, VOR/DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal 
airway changes are described below.
    V-59: V-59 extends between the Pulaski, VA, VORTAC and the 
Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME. The airway segment between the Parkersburg, 
WV, VOR/DME and the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME is removed. The 
unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-92: V-92 extends between the Chicago Heights, IL, VORTAC and the 
Goshen, IN, VORTAC; and between the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME and the 
Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME. The airway segment between the Newcomerstown, 
OH, VOR/DME and the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME is removed. The unaffected 
portion of the existing airway remains as charted.
    V-115: V-115 extends between the Crestview, FL, VORTAC and the 
Franklin, PA, VOR/DME. The airway segment between the Parkersburg, WV, 
VORTAC and the Franklin, PA, VOR/DME is removed. Additionally, an 
editorial correction changes the state abbreviation for the Choo Choo 
VORTAC listed in the description from ``GA'' to ``TN''. The unaffected 
portions of the existing airway remain as charted.
    V-117: V-117 extends between the Parkersburg, WV, VORTAC and the 
intersection of the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME 044[deg] radial and the 
Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME 099[deg] radial (WISKE fix). The WISKE fix 
in the airway description is amended to describe it as the intersection 
of the Bellaire, OH, VOR/DME 044[deg] and the Briggs, OH, VOR/DME 
136[deg] radials. The existing airway remains as charted.
    The NAVAID radials listed in the VOR Federal airway descriptions 
below are stated in True degrees.
    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 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-59, V-92, V-115, and V-117 in the vicinity of Newcomerstown, 
OH, due to the VOR portion of the Newcomerstown, OH, VOR/DME being 
decommissioned, 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.
