Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 143 / Thursday, July 29, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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 supports modifying, removing, and establishing the air traffic service route structure in Alaska to maintain the efficient flow of air traffic. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2020–0544 in the Federal Register (85 FR 37033; June 19, 2020), removing VOR Federal airway V–482 in the state of Alaska. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Alaskan VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(b) 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 Alaskan VOR Federal airway listed in this document will be subsequently removed from this Order. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 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 Alaskan VOR Federal airway V–482. V–482: V–482 currently extends between Johnstone Point, AK to Gulkana, AK. This action removes the entire route. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jul 28, 2021 Jkt 253001 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 action of revoking VOR Federal airway V–482 in Alaska 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, with 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.

ACTION: Final rule; correction. AGENCY: This action corrects a final rule published by the FAA in the Federal Register on July 15, 2021. This action amends Federal airways, A–15, V–444, J–502, and J–511 in Alaska. It also establishes an extension of two Canadian Area Navigation Q routes, Q–811, and Q–902. The modifications are necessary due to the decommissioning of the Burwash NonDirectional Beacon (NDB) in Yukon Territory, Canada, which provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected routes. The Burwash NDB was decommissioned effective March 26, 2020 due to ongoing maintenance problems and logistic issues.

The modifications are necessary due to the decommissioning of the Burwash Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) in Yukon Territory, Canada, which provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected routes. Subsequent to the publication, it was determined that exclusionary language, ‘‘excluding the airspace within Canada’’ was included in The Rule section, but was not included in the legal descriptions for Q–902, and Q–811. This rule corrects that error by including ‘‘excluding the airspace within Canada’’ below the line containing IGSOM, CA in the Q–811 legal description and below the line containing KOTZEBUE, AK (OTZ) in the Q–902 legal description.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2020-0567 in the Federal Register (85 FR 38799; June 29, 2020), a 
supplemental NPRM (85 FR 60108; September 24, 2020) and a final rule 
(86 FR 37235; July 15, 2021), amending Federal airways V-15, V-444, jet 
routes J-502, and J-511, and establishing an extension of two Canadian 
Area Navigation Q routes, Q-811, and Q-902. The modifications are 
necessary due to the decommissioning of the Burwash Non-Directional 
Beacon (NDB) in Yukon Territory, Canada, which provides navigation 
guidance for portions of the affected routes. Subsequent to the 
publication, it was determined that exclusionary language, ``excluding 
the airspace within Canada'' was included in The Rule section, but was 
not included in the legal descriptions for Q-902, and Q-811. This rule 
corrects that error by including ``excluding the airspace within 
Canada'' below the line containing IGSOM, CA in the Q-811 legal 
description and below the line containing KOTZEBUE, AK (OTZ) in the Q-
902 legal description. This is an editorial change only and does not 
alter the alignment of the route as shown on aeronautical charts, and 
does not affect the use of the route by aircraft.
    Canadian Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 2007 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 Canadian 
Area Navigation Routes listed in this document will be subsequently 
published in the Order.
