SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority for This Rulemaking DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2020–0512; Airspace Docket No. 20–AGL–10] RIN 2120–AA66 On February 14, 2020, the FAA issued Special Conditions No. 25–760–SC, under Docket No. FAA–2019–0329. Those special conditions were published in the Federal Register on March 5, 2020, (85 FR 12864). Those special conditions pertain to passenger cabins with high wall suites (HWS) for The Boeing Company Model 777–9 series airplane, which is a derivative of the Model 777–300ER airplane currently approved under Type Certificate No. T00001SE. A special condition paragraph to that document published with incorrect text in condition No. 1. As published, the first special conditions paragraph stated that there should be no hazards to a person performing a physical search above the high wall suites (e.g., no hot surfaces, no sharp edges, and no corners). There are no substantive changes to the document as it is apparent that a corner is inherently not a hazard in and of itself. However, a sharp corner could be. It is evident that VerDate Sep<11>2014 the text should have included corner as modified by sharp not just corner itself; otherwise all corners would be considered hazardous. Therefore, the text should have read: ‘‘The area above each HWS must be designed such that there should be no hazards to a person performing a physical search above the HWS (e.g., no hot surfaces, no sharp edges or corners)’’ from the beginning. 67439 Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes T–301 and T–305; Northcentral United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

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. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2020–0512 in the Federal Register (85 FR 36172; June 15, 2020), establishing T–301 and T–305 to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of transitioning the NAS from ground-based to satellite-based navigation.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES The Rule The FAA is amending title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish RNAV routes T–301 and T– 305. The new T-routes are described below. T–301: T–301 is a new RNAV route that extends between the Cape Girardeau, MO, DME and the Peoria, IL, VORTAC. This T-route provides enroute routing in place of the recently removed V–313 airway segment between the Cape Girardeau, MO, DME and the Centralia, IL, VORTAC; routing adjacent to VOR Federal airway V–67 between the Centralia, IL, VORTAC and the Spinner, IL, VORTAC; and routing over VOR Federal airway V–129 between the Spinner, IL, VORTAC and the Peoria, IL, VORTAC. T–305: T–305 is a new RNAV route that extends between the Cape Girardeau, MO, DME and the JIBKA, IN, waypoint. This T-route provides enroute routing adjacent to and slightly beyond VerDate Sep<11>2014 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 establishing RNAV routes T– 301 and T305, to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of transitioning the NAS from groundbased to satellite-based navigation, 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.

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.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0512 in the Federal Register (85 FR 36172; June 15, 2020), 
establishing T-301 and T-305 to expand the availability of RNAV routing 
in support of transitioning the NAS from ground-based to satellite-
based navigation. Additionally, portions of the new RNAV routes provide 
enroute structure where VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airway 
segments were removed due to the Cape

Minimum Operational Network (MON) program. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal. No substantive comments were received.
    United States RNAV T-routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA 
Order 7400.11E dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV T-routes 
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 7400.11E, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E 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 to establish RNAV routes T-301 and T-305. The new T-routes are 
described below.
    T-301: T-301 is a new RNAV route that extends between the Cape 
Girardeau, MO, DME and the Peoria, IL, VORTAC. This T-route provides 
enroute routing in place of the recently removed V-313 airway segment 
between the Cape Girardeau, MO, DME and the Centralia, IL, VORTAC; 
routing adjacent to VOR Federal airway V-67 between the Centralia, IL, 
VORTAC and the Spinner, IL, VORTAC; and routing over VOR Federal airway 
V-129 between the Spinner, IL, VORTAC and the Peoria, IL, VORTAC.
    T-305: T-305 is a new RNAV route that extends between the Cape 
Girardeau, MO, DME and the JIBKA, IN, waypoint. This T-route provides 
enroute routing adjacent to and slightly beyond the recently removed 
VOR Federal airway V-125 between the Cape Girardeau, MO, DME and the 
NIKEL fix; routing to transition northeastward to the TYMME, IL, 
waypoint (new) located near the Vandalia, IL, VORTAC; and routing 
adjacent to VOR Federal airway V-14 between the Vandalia, IL, VORTAC 
and the Terra Haute, IN, VORTAC to the JIBKA, IN, waypoint located 
approximately one nautical mile northwest of the Terra Haute VORTAC.
    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 establishing RNAV routes 
T-301 and T305, to expand the availability of RNAV routing in support 
of transitioning the NAS from ground-based to satellite-based 
navigation, 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.
