Direct Final Rule We are eliminating the requirements for paper copy submissions in § 655.10(c), § 655.15(a), and § 655.21(a), and clarifying that submissions required under § 655.21(b) should be done electronically, by a direct final rulemaking. The Administrative Conference of the United States recommends direct final rulemaking for Federal agencies to enact noncontroversial regulations on an expedited basis, without the usual notice and comment period.3 This process enables us to reduce the time and resources we need to develop, review, and publish a final rule while still affording the public an adequate opportunity to comment or object to the rule. In a direct final rulemaking, we notify the public that the rule will become final on a specified date unless we receive a significant adverse comment during the comment period. A significant adverse comment is one where the commenter explains why the rule would be inappropriate (including challenges to its underlying premise or approach), ineffective, or unacceptable without a change. In general, a significant adverse comment would raise an issue serious enough to warrant a substantive response from the FCA in a notice-and-comment proceeding. We believe that a direct final rulemaking is the appropriate method for amending § 655.10(c), § 655.15(a), and § 655.21(a) and (b) because the changes are administrative in nature and do not substantively alter the rights or responsibilities of any party. We do not anticipate there will be significant adverse comments. If, however, we receive a significant adverse comment during the comment period, we will publish a notice of withdrawal of the relevant provisions of this rule that will also indicate how further rulemaking will proceed. If we receive no significant adverse comments, we will publish notice of the effective date of the rule following the required congressional waiting period under section 5.17(c)(1) of the Act. IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act Analysis and Major Rule Conclusion Pursuant to section 605(b) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), FCA hereby certifies the final 3 Recommendation 95–4, referencing the Administrative Procedure Act ‘‘good cause’’ exemption at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), adopted June 15, 1995. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:59 May 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The Corporation has assets and annual income over the amounts that would qualify it as a small entity. Therefore, the Corporation is not considered a ‘‘small entity’’ as defined in the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Under the provisions of the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), the Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has determined that this direct final rule is not a ‘‘major rule,’’ as the term is defined at 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

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.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:59 May 21, 2021 Jkt 253001 History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2020–0868 in the Federal Register (85 FR 64998; October 14, 2020) removing colored Federal airway, R–50, and amending Alaskan VHF Omnidirectional Radar (VOR) Federal airway, V–319, and United States Area Navigation (RNAV) routes T–219 and T– 269 in Alaska. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Colored and Alaskan VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009 and 6010(b), and United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 2006 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 Colored and Alaskan VOR Federal airways, and United States Area Navigation routes listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. Differences From the NPRM In the NPRM published in the Federal Register (85 FR 64998; October 14, 2020) proposal section, describing T–269, there is a typographical error. The way point CENTA is spelled incorrectly as CENTRA. This rule corrects that error in the Rule section. 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 Rule This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by removing Colored Federal airway R–50, modifying Alaskan VOR Federal airway V–319, and United States Area Navigation routes T–219 and T–269. The Airway actions are described below. R–50: R–50 currently extends between the Nanwak, AK, NDB and the Anvik, AK, NDB. This action removes the entire route. V–319: V–319 currently extends between the Yakutat, AK and the Nanwak, AK, NDB. This action removes the segment from the Hooper Bay, AK, PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 27799 VOR/DME to the Nanwak, AK, NDB. The unaffected portions of the existing route remain as charted. T–219: T–219 currently extends between the Nanwak, AK, NDB and the Dillingham, AK, VOR/DME. This action extends the airway from the MKLUK, AK, WP to the Hooper Bay, AK, VOR/ DME. Additionally, the FAA is correcting the legal description, to include the NACIP, AK, WP and the ACATE, AK WP. Finally, this action corrects the legal description so that it denotes south to north track as it states in the FAA JO 7400.2M paragraph 20– 1–5e2. T–269: T–269 currently extends between the Annette Island, AK, VOR/ DME and the Bethel, AK, VORTAC. This action extends the airway from the Bethel, AK, VORTAC to the MKLUK, AK, WP. Additionally, the FAA is incorporating eight additional waypoints and fixes that were not included in the legal description. These reporting points include TURTY, AK, WP; FLIPS, AK, FIX; HAPIT, AK, FIX; CENTA, AK, WP; KATAT, AK, WP; YONEK, AK, WP; VEILL, AK, WP, and VIDDA, AK, WP that contain a turn and are required to be included in the legal description as per the FAA JO 7400.2M paragraph 20–1–5h2. 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 airspace action of removing Colored Federal airway R–50, and modifying Alaskan VOR Federal airway V–319, and United States Area Navigation routes T–219 and T–269 qualifies for E:\FR\FM\24MYR1.SGM 24MYR1 27800 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 98 / Monday, May 24, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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.

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 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 for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0868 in the Federal Register (85 FR 64998; October 14, 2020) 
removing colored Federal airway, R-50, and amending Alaskan VHF 
Omnidirectional Radar (VOR) Federal airway, V-319, and United States 
Area Navigation (RNAV) routes T-219 and T-269 in Alaska. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
    Colored and Alaskan VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 
6009 and 6010(b), and United States Area Navigation Routes are 
published in paragraph 2006 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 Colored and Alaskan VOR Federal airways, and United 
States Area Navigation routes listed in this document will be 
subsequently published in the Order.

Differences From the NPRM

    In the NPRM published in the Federal Register (85 FR 64998; October 
14, 2020) proposal section, describing T-269, there is a typographical 
error. The way point CENTA is spelled incorrectly as CENTRA. This rule 
corrects that error in the Rule section.

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 Rule

    This action amends 14 CFR part 71 by removing Colored Federal 
airway R-50, modifying Alaskan VOR Federal airway V-319, and United 
States Area Navigation routes T-219 and T-269. The Airway actions are 
described below.
    R-50: R-50 currently extends between the Nanwak, AK, NDB and the 
Anvik, AK, NDB. This action removes the entire route.
    V-319: V-319 currently extends between the Yakutat, AK and the 
Nanwak, AK, NDB. This action removes the segment from the Hooper Bay, 
AK, VOR/DME to the Nanwak, AK, NDB. The unaffected portions of the 
existing route remain as charted.
    T-219: T-219 currently extends between the Nanwak, AK, NDB and the 
Dillingham, AK, VOR/DME. This action extends the airway from the MKLUK, 
AK, WP to the Hooper Bay, AK, VOR/DME. Additionally, the FAA is 
correcting the legal description, to include the NACIP, AK, WP and the 
ACATE, AK WP. Finally, this action corrects the legal description so 
that it denotes south to north track as it states in the FAA JO 7400.2M 
paragraph 20-1-5e2.
    T-269: T-269 currently extends between the Annette Island, AK, VOR/
DME and the Bethel, AK, VORTAC. This action extends the airway from the 
Bethel, AK, VORTAC to the MKLUK, AK, WP. Additionally, the FAA is 
incorporating eight additional waypoints and fixes that were not 
included in the legal description. These reporting points include 
TURTY, AK, WP; FLIPS, AK, FIX; HAPIT, AK, FIX; CENTA, AK, WP; KATAT, 
AK, WP; YONEK, AK, WP; VEILL, AK, WP, and VIDDA, AK, WP that contain a 
turn and are required to be included in the legal description as per 
the FAA JO 7400.2M paragraph 20-1-5h2.
    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

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 airspace action of removing 
Colored Federal airway R-50, and modifying Alaskan VOR Federal airway 
V-319, and United States Area Navigation routes T-219 and T-269 
qualifies for

[[Page 27800]]

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.
