SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 would expand the availability of RNAV in Florida to improve the efficiency of the NAS by lessening the dependency on ground-based navigation aids. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2020–0525 in the Federal Register (85 FR 36355; June 16, 2020) amending two existing low altitude RNAV routes (T-routes), and establishing nine new Troutes in support of the South-Central Florida Metroplex Project. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. One comment was received, which was not germane to the NPRM. United States Area Navigation 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 routes listed in the document would 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 This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by amending two existing low altitude RNAV routes (T-routes), and establishing nine new T-routes in support of the South-Central Florida Metroplex Project. The purpose of the routes is to expand the availability of RNAV, and improve the efficiency of the NAS by reducing the dependency on ground-based navigation systems. The following is a general description of the amended and new routes. E:\FR\FM\23FER1.SGM 23FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 34 / Tuesday, February 23, 2021 / Rules and Regulations T–208: The FAA is amending T–208. T–208 is an existing route that extends from the Gators, FL (GNV), VORTAC eastward to the CARRA, FL, fix, then to the Ormond Beach (OMN) VORTAC. This action removes the Gators VORTAC, the CARRA fix, and the Ormond Beach VORTAC from the route. T–208 is realigned to start at the WALEE, FL, waypoint (WP) (located to the east of the current Gators, FL, VORTAC). The route then proceeds eastward to the MMKAY, FL; and the FOXAM, FL, WPs, (near the Florida east coast), then it turns southward through the SUUGR, FL, WP, the SMYRA, FL; OAKIE, FL; MALET, FL; TICCO, FL; and INDIA, FL, fixes, then continues southward through the DIMBY, FL, WP; the VALKA, FL, fix, the SULTY, FL; WIXED, FL; CLEFF, FL; DURRY, FL; and BOBOE, FL, WPs; and, terminates at the SHANC, FL, fix (located about 17 nautical miles (NM) northwest of the Fort Lauderdale, FL, VOR/DME). The amended route extends between the WALEE, FL, WP, and the SHANC, FL, fix. T–210: The FAA is amending T–208. T–210 is an existing route that extends from the Taylor, FL (TAY), VORTAC, to the OHLEE, FL, WP, to the BRADO, FL, fix. The FAA is removing the Taylor, FL, VORTAC from the route and adding the MARQO, FL, WP (in the vicinity of the Taylor VORTAC) as the new start point. From the MARQO, FL, WP, the route proceeds southeastward through the OHLEE, FL, WP, and BRADO, FL, fix (as currently charted). After the BRADO, FL, fix, the route turns southward through the MMKAY, FL, and MRUTT, FL, WPs, the GUANO, FL, fix, and the KIZER, FL, fix (located about 23 NM north of the Orlando, FL (ORL), VORTAC). After KIZER, FL, the route turns southwestward through the EMSEE, FL; DAIYL, FL; AKOJO, FL; and PUNQU, FL, WPs, and terminates at the VARZE, FL, WP. T–336: T–336 is a new route that extends between the TROYR, FL, WP, and the WIXED, FL, WP. T–337: T–337 is a new route that extends between the SWENY, FL, WP, and the WEZER, FL, WP. T–339: T–339 is a new route that extends between the KARTR, FL, WP, and the ODDEL, FL, WP. T–341: T–341 is a new route that extend between the MEAGN, FL, WP, and the MARQO, FL, WP. T–343: T–343 is a new route that extends between the WORPP, FL, WP, and the INDIA, FL, WP. T–345: T–345 is a new route that extends between the MARKT, FL, WP, and the DEARY, FL, WP. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:28 Feb 22, 2021 Jkt 253001 T–347: T–347 is a new route that extends between the CLEFF, FL, WP, and the SEBAG, FL, WP. T–349: T–349 is a new route that extends between the VARZE, FL, WP, and the TROYR, FL, WP. T–353: T–353 is a new route that extends between the FEBRO, FL, WP, and the ASTOR, FL, WP. 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 amending low altitude RNAV routes T–208 and T–210, and establishing low altitude RNAV routes T–336, T–337, T–339, T–341, T–343, T– 345, T–347, T–349, and T–355 in the south-central United States 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 cause 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 PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 10809 environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA has determined no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

Amendment and Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes; 
South-Central Florida Metroplex Project

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This action amends two existing low altitude RNAV routes (T-
routes), and establishes nine new T-routes in support of the South-
Central Florida Metroplex Project. The changes made in this rule will 
reduce the dependency of the National Airspace System (NAS) on ground-
based navigational systems, and assist with the transition to a more 
efficient Performance Based Navigation (PBN) route structure.

DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, April 22, 2021. The Director of the 
Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 
Title 1 Code of Federal Regulations part 51, subject to the annual 
revision of FAA Order 7400.11 and publication of conforming amendments.

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 would expand the availability of RNAV in Florida to 
improve the efficiency of the NAS by lessening the dependency on 
ground-based navigation aids.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0525 in the Federal Register (85 FR 36355; June 16, 2020) 
amending two existing low altitude RNAV routes (T-routes), and 
establishing nine new T-routes in support of the South-Central Florida 
Metroplex Project. Interested parties were invited to participate in 
this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. 
One comment was received, which was not germane to the NPRM.
    United States Area Navigation 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 routes listed in the document would 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

    This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by amending two existing low 
altitude RNAV routes (T-routes), and establishing nine new T-routes in 
support of the South-Central Florida Metroplex Project. The purpose of 
the routes is to expand the availability of RNAV, and improve the 
efficiency of the NAS by reducing the dependency on ground-based 
navigation systems. The following is a general description of the 
amended and new routes.

[[Page 10809]]

    T-208: The FAA is amending T-208. T-208 is an existing route that 
extends from the Gators, FL (GNV), VORTAC eastward to the CARRA, FL, 
fix, then to the Ormond Beach (OMN) VORTAC. This action removes the 
Gators VORTAC, the CARRA fix, and the Ormond Beach VORTAC from the 
route. T-208 is realigned to start at the WALEE, FL, waypoint (WP) 
(located to the east of the current Gators, FL, VORTAC). The route then 
proceeds eastward to the MMKAY, FL; and the FOXAM, FL, WPs, (near the 
Florida east coast), then it turns southward through the SUUGR, FL, WP, 
the SMYRA, FL; OAKIE, FL; MALET, FL; TICCO, FL; and INDIA, FL, fixes, 
then continues southward through the DIMBY, FL, WP; the VALKA, FL, fix, 
the SULTY, FL; WIXED, FL; CLEFF, FL; DURRY, FL; and BOBOE, FL, WPs; 
and, terminates at the SHANC, FL, fix (located about 17 nautical miles 
(NM) northwest of the Fort Lauderdale, FL, VOR/DME). The amended route 
extends between the WALEE, FL, WP, and the SHANC, FL, fix.
    T-210: The FAA is amending T-208. T-210 is an existing route that 
extends from the Taylor, FL (TAY), VORTAC, to the OHLEE, FL, WP, to the 
BRADO, FL, fix. The FAA is removing the Taylor, FL, VORTAC from the 
route and adding the MARQO, FL, WP (in the vicinity of the Taylor 
VORTAC) as the new start point. From the MARQO, FL, WP, the route 
proceeds southeastward through the OHLEE, FL, WP, and BRADO, FL, fix 
(as currently charted). After the BRADO, FL, fix, the route turns 
southward through the MMKAY, FL, and MRUTT, FL, WPs, the GUANO, FL, 
fix, and the KIZER, FL, fix (located about 23 NM north of the Orlando, 
FL (ORL), VORTAC). After KIZER, FL, the route turns southwestward 
through the EMSEE, FL; DAIYL, FL; AKOJO, FL; and PUNQU, FL, WPs, and 
terminates at the VARZE, FL, WP.
    T-336: T-336 is a new route that extends between the TROYR, FL, WP, 
and the WIXED, FL, WP.
    T-337: T-337 is a new route that extends between the SWENY, FL, WP, 
and the WEZER, FL, WP.
    T-339: T-339 is a new route that extends between the KARTR, FL, WP, 
and the ODDEL, FL, WP.
    T-341: T-341 is a new route that extend between the MEAGN, FL, WP, 
and the MARQO, FL, WP.
    T-343: T-343 is a new route that extends between the WORPP, FL, WP, 
and the INDIA, FL, WP.
    T-345: T-345 is a new route that extends between the MARKT, FL, WP, 
and the DEARY, FL, WP.
    T-347: T-347 is a new route that extends between the CLEFF, FL, WP, 
and the SEBAG, FL, WP.
    T-349: T-349 is a new route that extends between the VARZE, FL, WP, 
and the TROYR, FL, WP.
    T-353: T-353 is a new route that extends between the FEBRO, FL, WP, 
and the ASTOR, FL, WP.
    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 amending low altitude 
RNAV routes T-208 and T-210, and establishing low altitude RNAV routes 
T-336, T-337, T-339, T-341, T-343, T-345, T-347, T-349, and T-355 in 
the south-central United States 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 cause 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 no extraordinary circumstances exist 
that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or 
environmental impact study.
