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. Background The Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center (ZLA) is responsible for managing the NAS for much of the Desert Southwest portion of the United States. This responsibility requires close coordination with the many military installations to ensure a proper balance between the NAS user needs and military mission requirements. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 The United States Marine Corps (USMC) in Yuma, AZ has requested additional airspace (higher altitude) above the existing Bristol Military Operations Area (MOA) northeast of Twentynine Palms, CA. The airspace in the Bristol MOA has a ceiling to but not including 18,000 feet MSL, however the USMC has determined that to be inadequate to support Marine Expeditionary Brigade sized training events. A recent agreement between the USMC in Yuma, AZ, and ZLA provides two ATCAAs above the current Bristol MOAs to support the need for higher altitudes. Creating this additional airspace, however, conflicts with traffic on RNAV route Q–73. A slight modification of Q–73 will be required to provide safe passage of nonparticipating aircraft transitioning this area. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend United States Area Navigation (RNAV) route Q– 73 due to the creation of SAA, Bristol ATCAA in the vicinity of Twentynine Palms, CA. The proposal would add two additional waypoints between LVELL and HAKMN in order to provide an adequate buffer between military activities in that area. The full legal description is provided in the ‘‘Rule’’ area below. Q–73: Q–73 currently extends from the MOMAR, CA, waypoint (WP) to the CORDU, ID, WP. The FAA proposes to add two additional WPs. The first WP would be BLKWL between LVELL and ZELMA and the other KRLIE, WP, between ZELMA and HAKMN. These proposed WP would provide safe segregation of air traffic along Q–73 from military activity operating within the adjacent SAA. The rest of the route would remain unchanged. 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 RNAV route listed in this document would 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 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 E:\FR\FM\09SEP1.SGM 09SEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 172 / Thursday, September 9, 2021 / Proposed Rules 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.

portion of the United States. This responsibility requires close 
coordination with the many military installations to ensure a proper 
balance between the NAS user needs and military mission requirements.
    The United States Marine Corps (USMC) in Yuma, AZ has requested 
additional airspace (higher altitude) above the existing Bristol 
Military Operations Area (MOA) northeast of Twentynine Palms, CA. The 
airspace in the Bristol MOA has a ceiling to but not including 18,000 
feet MSL, however the USMC has determined that to be inadequate to 
support Marine Expeditionary Brigade sized training events. A recent 
agreement between the USMC in Yuma, AZ, and ZLA provides two ATCAAs 
above the current Bristol MOAs to support the need for higher 
altitudes. Creating this additional airspace, however, conflicts with 
traffic on RNAV route Q-73. A slight modification of Q-73 will be 
required to provide safe passage of non-participating aircraft 
transitioning this area.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend United 
States Area Navigation (RNAV) route Q-73 due to the creation of SAA, 
Bristol ATCAA in the vicinity of Twentynine Palms, CA. The proposal 
would add two additional waypoints between LVELL and HAKMN in order to 
provide an adequate buffer between military activities in that area. 
The full legal description is provided in the ``Rule'' area below.
    Q-73: Q-73 currently extends from the MOMAR, CA, waypoint (WP) to 
the CORDU, ID, WP. The FAA proposes to add two additional WPs. The 
first WP would be BLKWL between LVELL and ZELMA and the other KRLIE, 
WP, between ZELMA and HAKMN. These proposed WP would provide safe 
segregation of air traffic along Q-73 from military activity operating 
within the adjacent SAA. The rest of the route would remain unchanged.
    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 RNAV 
route listed in this document would 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 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

[[Page 50495]]

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.
