Deletion of VOR Federal Airways V-346 and V-400 in the Vicinity of Beauce, Canada., 13169-13171 [2021-04155]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 43 / Monday, March 8, 2021 / Rules and Regulations History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2020–0941 in the Federal Register (85 FR 71292; November 9, 2020), modifying VHF Omni-directional Range Federal airway V–541 and removing V– 49, in the vicinity of Decatur, AL. This will provide for the safe and efficient use of navigable airspace within the National Airspace System (NAS) while reducing NAVAID dependencies throughout the NAS as part of the FAA VOR Minimum Operation Network program. 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 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airways listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This action 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 proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.11E lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES The Rule This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airway V–541 and removing V–49, in the vicinity of Decatur, AL, due to the planned decommissioning of the Decatur, AL, VOR/DME as part of the FAA VOR Minimum Operation Network program. The route changes are described below. V–49: V–49 currently extends from the Vulcan, AL, VORTAC to the Nashville, TN, VORTAC. The airway is removed in its entirety. V–541: V–541 currently extends from the Gadsden, AL, VOR/DME to the Muscle Shoals, AL, VORTAC. The FAA straightens V–541 from the Gadsden VOR to the EDDIE intersection and removes the portion from the EDDIE intersection (INT Gadsden 318° T/316° M and Vulcan, AL, 029° T/027°M radials) to the Muscle Shoals VORTAC. This eliminates the dogleg that currently exists at AWPOJ, which is a Computer Notification Fix. Note: In the V–541 description, both True (T) and Magnetic (M) degrees are stated VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:10 Mar 05, 2021 Jkt 253001 because new radials are being used in the legal description (EDDIE intersection) to replace AWPOJ intersection (INT Gadsden 318° and Decatur, AL, 130° radials). 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 action 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 airway V–541 and removing V–49, in the vicinity of Decatur, AL, 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.

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 modify the VOR Federal airway route structure in 
the eastern United States to maintain the efficient flow of air 
traffic.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for Docket 
No. FAA-2020-0992 in the Federal Register (85 FR 70534; November 5, 
2020), removing VHF Omni-directional Range Federal airway V-346 and V-
400, in the vicinity of Beauce, Canada. NAV Canada has deleted the 
portions of both airways that resided in their airspace. 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 
7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airways 
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

    This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by removing VOR Federal airway V-
346 and V-4000, in the vicinity of Beauce, Canada, due to the planned 
decommissioning of the Beauce, Canada, VOR/DME navigational aid. The 
routes have already been removed by NAV Canada for those portions in 
Canada. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below.
    V-346: V-346 currently extends from Beauce, PQ, Canada, VOR/DME to 
Millinocket, ME, VOR/DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. The 
airway is removed in its entirety.
    V-400: V-400 currently extends from Presque Isle, ME, VOR/DME to 
Beauce, PQ, Canada, VOR/DME, excluding the airspace within Canada. The 
airway is removed in its entirety.
    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 proposed 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 removing VHF Omni-
directional Range Federal airways V-346 and V-400, in the vicinity of 
Beauce, Canada, 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 
that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of 
an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.
