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 NAV CANADA, which operates Canada’s civil air navigation service, is continuing to implement various changes to Canada’s instrument flight rules (IFR) navigation infrastructure as part of their NAVAID Modernization Program to enhance the efficiency of operations by taking advantage of performance based navigation and modern avionic capabilities. The changes being implemented by NAV CANADA occasionally affect parts of U.S. VOR Federal airways that extend across the U.S./Canada border into Canadian airspace. As a result, the removal of V–242 would mirror changes that are planned to be made by NAV CANADA on the Canadian side of the border. NAV CANADA is planning the decommissioning of the Atikokan, ON, Canada, NDB as part of their NAVAID Modernization Program. With the planned decommissioning of the Atikokan NDB, the ground-based NAVAID coverage in the area is insufficient to enable the continuity of V–242. As a result, V–242 would no longer be supportable and would be removed in its entirety. To overcome the loss of the airway, instrument flight rules (IFR) traffic could use adjacent ATS routes, including VOR Federal airways V–133, V–300, and V–367, or request air traffic control (ATC) radar vectors to fly through or circumnavigate the affected area. The International Falls, MN, VHF Omni-directional Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) NAVAID, which is currently the first airway point on V–242, will also remain in service and continue providing positive course guidance and distance measuring service to aircraft within 40 nautical miles of the NAVAID. Additionally, IFR pilots equipped with VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:43 Dec 22, 2020 Jkt 253001 RNAV PBN capabilities would also be able to navigate point to point using the existing fixes that will remain in place to support continued operations though the affected area. Visual flight rules (VFR) pilots who elect to navigate via the airways through the affected area could also take advantage of the adjacent VOR Federal airways or ATC services listed previously. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to remove VOR Federal airway V–242. The planned decommissioning of the Atikokan, ON, Canada, NDB has made this action necessary. The proposed change is outlined below. V–242: V–242 currently extends between the International Falls, MN, VOR/DME and the Atikokan, ON, Canada, NDB, excluding that airspace within Canada. The FAA proposes to remove the airway in its entirety. 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 route 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 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action.

Background

    NAV CANADA, which operates Canada's civil air navigation service, 
is continuing to implement various changes to Canada's instrument 
flight rules (IFR) navigation infrastructure as part of their NAVAID 
Modernization Program to enhance the efficiency of operations by taking 
advantage of performance based navigation and modern avionic 
capabilities. The changes being implemented by NAV CANADA occasionally 
affect parts of U.S. VOR Federal airways that extend across the U.S./
Canada border into Canadian airspace. As a result, the removal of V-242 
would mirror changes that are planned to be made by NAV CANADA on the 
Canadian side of the border.
    NAV CANADA is planning the decommissioning of the Atikokan, ON, 
Canada, NDB as part of their NAVAID Modernization Program. With the 
planned decommissioning of the Atikokan NDB, the ground-based NAVAID 
coverage in the area is insufficient to enable the continuity of V-242. 
As a result, V-242 would no longer be supportable and would be removed 
in its entirety.
    To overcome the loss of the airway, instrument flight rules (IFR) 
traffic could use adjacent ATS routes, including VOR Federal airways V-
133, V-300, and V-367, or request air traffic control (ATC) radar 
vectors to fly through or circumnavigate the affected area. The 
International Falls, MN, VHF Omni-directional Range/Distance Measuring 
Equipment (VOR/DME) NAVAID, which is currently the first airway point 
on V-242, will also remain in service and continue providing positive 
course guidance and distance measuring service to aircraft within 40 
nautical miles of the NAVAID. Additionally, IFR pilots equipped with 
RNAV PBN capabilities would also be able to navigate point to point 
using the existing fixes that will remain in place to support continued 
operations though the affected area. Visual flight rules (VFR) pilots 
who elect to navigate via the airways through the affected area could 
also take advantage of the adjacent VOR Federal airways or ATC services 
listed previously.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to remove VOR Federal airway V-242. The 
planned decommissioning of the Atikokan, ON, Canada, NDB has made this 
action necessary. The proposed change is outlined below.
    V-242: V-242 currently extends between the International Falls, MN, 
VOR/DME and the Atikokan, ON, Canada, NDB, excluding that airspace 
within Canada. The FAA proposes to remove the airway in its entirety.
    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 route 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.
