Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Palestine, TX, 27327-27329 [2021-10560]

Download as PDF 27327 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 96 / Thursday, May 20, 2021 / Proposed Rules areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. Background Federal airways V–39 and V–93 were originally part of a larger proposal that was published in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA–2020–1146 (86 FR 5046; January 19, 2021). No comments were received in response to that NPRM. Subsequent to the publication of the NPRM, an FAA flight inspection of an airway fix (defined by the intersection of the Barnes, MA (BAF) VORTAC 279°, and the Chester, MA (CTR) VOR/DME 223° radials), could not be completed due to technical reasons. Because the fix would be common to both airways, the proposed amendments of V–39 and V–93 were removed from Docket No. FAA–2020– 1146 and delayed to a later date in order to address the airway fix issue. The FAA determined that the fix defined by the intersection of the Barnes, MA, and Chester, MA, radials (described above) could be removed from the route descriptions because it did not mark a turn point on the routes. As a difference from the original NPRM, the FAA proposes to retain the affected route segments of V–39 and V–93 to Chester, MA, (as described below) rather than ending the route segments prior to Chester. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend VOR Federal airways V–39 and V–93 as follows. V–39: V–39 currently extends between Sandhills, NC, and Mont Joli, PQ, Canada. The FAA proposes to remove the airway segments between Chester, MA, and Augusta, ME. As amended, V–39 would consist of two parts: From Sandhills, NC, to Chester, MA; followed by a gap in the route; then from Augusta, ME to Mont Joli, PQ, Canada. V–93: V–93 currently consists of two parts: From Patuxent River, MD, to the intersection of the Wilkes Barre, PA, 037° and the Sparta, NJ, 300° radials; and from the intersection of the Sparta, NJ, 018° and the Kingston, NY, 270° radials, to Bangor, ME. This action would remove the segments between Chester, MA, and Bangor, ME. As amended, V–93 would consist of two parts: From Patuxent River, MD, to the intersection of the Wilkes Barre, PA, 037° and the Sparta, NJ, 300° radials; followed by a gap; then from the intersection of the Sparta, NJ, 018° and the Kingston, NY, 270° radials, to Chester, MA. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:57 May 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 Full route descriptions of the proposed amended routes are listed in ‘‘The Proposed Amendment’’ section of this notice. 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 RNAV 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.

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.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by amending the 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within 6.6 mile (decreased from 7.1-mile) radius of Palestine Municipal 
Airport, Palestine, TX, and by removing the Palestine NDB and 
associated extension from the airspace legal description; and updating 
the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review due to the 
decommissioning of the Palestine NDB, which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at this airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 Class E 
airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently 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 regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under 
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, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a

[[Page 27329]]

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.
