Proposed Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Route Q-437; Northeastern United States, 79448-79450 [2020-26947]

Download as PDF 79448 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 238 / Thursday, December 10, 2020 / Proposed Rules proposes to remove the airway in its entirety. V–289: V–289 currently extends between the Beaumont, TX, VORTAC and the Vichy, MO, VOR/DME. The FAA proposes to remove the airway point defined by the intersection of the Dogwood, MO, VORTAC 058° and Maples, MO, VORTAC 236° radials (MUPIE fix) and redefine the airway point defined by the intersection of the Maples, MO, VORTAC 236° and Vichy, MO, VOR/DME 204° radials (GOBEY fix) as the intersection of the new Dogwood, MO, VORTAC 058°(T)/ 057°(M) radial and existing Vichy, MO, VOR/DME 204° radial. The existing airway would remain as charted. All radials in the VOR Federal airway descriptions below that do not reflect True (T)/Magnetic (M) degree radial information are unchanged and stated in True degrees. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 ATS routes listed in this document would be subsequently published in the Order. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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. 16:26 Dec 09, 2020 The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: * PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

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

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 expand the availability of RNAV routes in the 
NAS, increase airspace capacity, and reduce complexity in high air 
traffic volume areas.

specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, 
environmental, and energy-related aspects of the proposal.
    Communications should identify both docket numbers (FAA Docket No. 
FAA-2020-1081 and Airspace Docket No. 20-AEA-19) and be submitted in

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend 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.

Background

    The Northeast Corridor Atlantic Coast Route (NEC ACR) project 
developed Performance Based Navigation (PBN) routes involving the 
Washington, Boston, New York, and Jacksonville Air Route Traffic 
Control Centers (ARTCC). The proposed routes would enable aircraft to 
travel from most locations along the east coast of the United States 
mainland between Maine and Charleston, SC. The proposed NEC ACR routes 
would also tie-in to the existing high altitude RNAV route structure 
enabling more efficient direct routings between the United States east 
coast and Caribbean area locations.
    Additionally, the proposed Q-route would support the strategy to 
transition the NAS from a ground-based navigation aid, and radar-based 
system, to a satellite-based PBN system.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing an Area Navigation (RNAV) 
route, Q-437, in the northeastern United States to support the 
Northeast Corridor Atlantic Coast Route Project.
    Q-437: Q-437 is proposed to extend between VILLS, NJ, fix, and 
SLANG, VT, waypoint (WP).
    United States area navigation routes are published in paragraph 
2006 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 area navigation routes listed in this document would 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.
