The airway is removed in its entirety. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 removing VOR Federal airway V–242, due to the planned decommissioning of the Atikokan, ON, Canada, NDB 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.

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.

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-2020-1103 in the

[[Page 27512]]

Federal Register (85 FR 79446; December 10, 2020), amending VOR Federal 
airways V-72, V-132, V-190, and V-289; and removing VOR Federal airway 
V-238 in the vicinity of Maples, MO. The proposed amendment and 
revocation actions were due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR 
portion of the Maples, MO, VORTAC 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 rule for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0944 in the Federal Register (86 FR 16296; March 29, 2021), 
amending VOR Federal airway V-190 by removing the airway segment 
overlying the Marion, IL, VOR/DME between the Farmington, MO, VORTAC 
and the Pocket City, IN, VORTAC. That airway amendment, effective June 
17, 2021, is included in this rule.
    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 published subsequently 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

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by modifying VOR Federal airways 
V-72, V-132, V-190, and V-289, and removing V-238. The planned 
decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Maples, MO, VORTAC has made 
this action necessary.
    The VOR Federal airway changes are outlined below.
    V-72: V-72 extends between the Razorback, AR, VORTAC and the Bible 
Grove, IL, VORTAC. The airway segment overlying the Maples, MO, VORTAC 
between the Dogwood, MO, VORTAC and the Farmington, MO, VORTAC is 
removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway remain as 
charted.
    V-132: V-132 extends between the Medicine Bow, WY, VOR/DME and the 
intersection of the Forney, MO, VOR 086[deg] and Maples, MO, VORTAC 
052[deg] radials (LENOX fix). The airway excludes that portion within 
restricted areas R-4501A, R-4501B, R-4501C and R-4501D during their 
time of activation. The LENOX fix is redefined as the intersection of 
the existing Forney, MO, VOR 086[deg] radial and new Vichy, MO, VOR/DME 
156[deg] radial. The existing airway remains as charted and the 
exclusion language remains unchanged.
    V-190: V-190 extends between the Phoenix, AZ, VORTAC and the 
Farmington, MO, VORTAC. The airway segment overlying the Maples, MO, 
VORTAC between the Springfield, MO, VORTAC and the Farmington, MO, 
VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the existing airway 
remain as charted.
    V-238: V-238 extends between the Maples, MO, VORTAC and the Troy, 
IL, VORTAC. The airway is removed in its entirety.
    V-289: V-289 extends between the Beaumont, TX, VORTAC and the 
Vichy, MO, VOR/DME. The airway point defined by the intersection of the 
Dogwood, MO, VORTAC 058[deg] and Maples, MO, VORTAC 236[deg] radials 
(MUPIE fix) is removed and the airway point defined by the intersection 
of the Maples, MO, VORTAC 236[deg] and Vichy, MO, VOR/DME 204[deg] 
radials (GOBEY fix) is redefined as the intersection of the new 
Dogwood, MO, VORTAC 058[deg] radial and existing Vichy, MO, VOR/DME 
204[deg] radial. The existing airway remains as charted.
    All radials in the VOR Federal airway descriptions below are 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-72, V-132, V-190, and V-289, and removing V-238, due to the 
planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Maples, MO, VORTAC 
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.
