ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This action amends VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V–67, V–190, and V–429; establishes Area Navigation (RNAV) route T–312; and removes VOR Federal airways V–125 and V–335 in the vicinity of Marion, IL. The Air Traffic Service (ATS) route modifications are SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:24 Mar 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 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. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0944 in the Federal Register (85 FR 70532; November 5, 2020), amending VOR Federal airways V–67, V–190, and V– 429; establishing RNAV route T–312; and removing VOR Federal airways V– 125 and V–335 in the vicinity of Marion, IL. The proposed amendment, establishment, and revocation actions were due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Marion, IL, VOR/DME NAVAID. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a NPRM correction for Docket No. FAA–2020–0944 in the Federal Register (85 FR 72612; November 13, 2020), correcting the airspace docket number for this action that was published in the NPRM. The correction changed all of the airspace docket number references from ‘‘20–AGL–26’’ to ‘‘20–ACE–26.’’ The correct airspace docket number for this action is 20– ACE–26 and is included in this rule. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) and 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 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 The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways V– 67, V–190, and V–429; establishing RNAV route T–312; and removing VOR Federal airways V–125 and V–335. The planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Marion, IL, VOR/DME NAVAID has made this action necessary. The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below. V–67: V–67 extends between the Choo Choo, TN, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation E:\FR\FM\29MRR1.SGM 29MRR1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 58 / Monday, March 29, 2021 / Rules and Regulations (VORTAC) and the Shelbyville, TN, VOR/DME; and between the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME and the Rochester, MN, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Marion, IL, VOR/ DME between the Cunningham, KY, VOR/DME and the Centralia, IL, VORTAC is removed due to the Marion VOR being decommissioned. Additionally, the airway segment between the Centralia, IL, VORTAC and the intersection of the Centralia, IL, VORTAC 010° and Vandalia, IL, VOR/ DME 162° radials (CORKI fix) is also removed due to V–313 overlaying the same airway segment. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–125: V–125 extends between the intersection of the Farmington, MO, VORTAC 046° and Marion, IL, VOR/ DME 282° radials (NIKEL fix) and the St Louis, MO, VORTAC. The airway is removed in its entirety. V–190: V–190 extends between the Phoenix, AZ, VORTAC and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC. The airway segment overlying the Marion, IL, VOR/DME between the Farmington, MO, VORTAC and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. V–335: V–335 extends between the St Louis, MO, VORTAC and the Marion, IL, VOR/DME. The airway is removed in its entirety. V–429: V–429 extends between the Marion, IL, VOR/DME and the Bible Grove, IL, VORTAC; and between the Champaign, IL, VORTAC and the Joliet, IL, VOR/DME. The airway segment overlying the Marion, IL, VOR/DME between the Marion, IL, VOR/DME and the Bible Grove, IL, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as charted. The new RNAV T-route is outlined below. T–312: T–312 is a new route that extends between the Hill City, KS, VORTAC and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC. This RNAV route mitigates the loss of the V–190 airway segment removed between the Farmington, MO, VORTAC and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC as noted above and provides RNAV routing capability from the Hill City, KS, area eastward to the Pocket City, IN, area. All NAVAID radials in the VOR Federal airway descriptions below are unchanged and stated in True degrees. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. Regulatory Notices and Analyses List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this 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. Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action of modifying VOR Federal airways V–67, V–190, and V–429; establishing RNAV route T–312; and removing VOR Federal airways V–125 and V–335, due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Marion, IL, VOR/DME NAVAID, qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) 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. The Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: * SUMMARY: WP VOR/DME History The FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA– 2019–0815 (85 FR 51329; August 20, 2020) removing Jet Route J–590, amending VOR Federal airways V–11 and V–70, and establishing RNAV routes T–362 and T–365. The air traffic service (ATS) route actions were accomplished due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Greene County, MS, VORTAC. A final rule, delay of effective date was published in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA–2019–0815 (85 FR 64377; October 13, 2020) to delay the effective date to coincide with the anticipated completion of flight inspection activities associated with related VOR MON program instrument procedure amendments that were necessary to adopt the rule. Unanticipated issues affecting the completion of the related instrument procedure amendments and the associated flight inspection activities required to adopt those amendments have continued. As a result, the Greene County, MS, VOR decommissioning has been slipped to October 10, 2023. FAA’s Conclusions The FAA has reviewed the Greene County, MS, VOR decommissioning project and determined additional time is required to complete the related instrument procedure amendments and associated flight inspection activities to ensure an efficient implementation and integration with other ongoing VOR MON program activities. Therefore, the final rule is being withdrawn. The existing ATS routes (J–590, V–11, and V–70) addressed in the final rule remain unchanged and the new RNAV T-routes (T–362 and T–365) are not established.

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 (NPRM) for Docket 
No. FAA-2020-0944 in the Federal Register (85 FR 70532; November 5, 
2020), amending VOR Federal airways V-67, V-190, and V-429; 
establishing RNAV route T-312; and removing VOR Federal airways V-125 
and V-335 in the vicinity of Marion, IL. The proposed amendment, 
establishment, and revocation actions were due to the planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Marion, IL, VOR/DME NAVAID. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were 
received.
    Subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a NPRM correction for 
Docket No. FAA-2020-0944 in the Federal Register (85 FR 72612; November 
13, 2020), correcting the airspace docket number for this action that 
was published in the NPRM. The correction changed all of the airspace 
docket number references from ``20-AGL-26'' to ``20-ACE-26.'' The 
correct airspace docket number for this action is 20-ACE-26 and is 
included in this rule.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) and 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 VOR Federal airways listed in this 
document will be subsequently published in the Order.

charted.
    The new RNAV T-route is outlined below.
    T-312: T-312 is a new route that extends between the Hill City, KS, 
VORTAC and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC. This RNAV route mitigates the 
loss of the V-190 airway segment removed between the Farmington, MO, 
VORTAC and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC as noted above and provides RNAV 
routing capability from the Hill City, KS, area eastward to the Pocket 
City, IN, area.
    All NAVAID radials in the VOR Federal airway descriptions below are 
unchanged and stated in True degrees.
    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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this 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

    The FAA has determined that this action of modifying VOR Federal 
airways V-67, V-190, and V-429; establishing RNAV route T-312; and 
removing VOR Federal airways V-125 and V-335, due to the planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Marion, IL, VOR/DME NAVAID, 
qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental 
Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) 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.
