SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register for Docket No. FAA-2017-0461 (82 FR 32149; July 12, 2017), 
amending VOR Federal airways V-16, V-31, V-93, V-157, V-213, and V-229 
due to the planned decommissioning of the Patuxent VORTAC which 
provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected airways. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. One comment was 
received. The commenter recommended that for VOR NAVAIDs that are to be 
decommissioned, and for those airways that are correspondingly removed, 
the FAA should create an Area Navigation (RNAV) waypoint at the 
previous NAVAID location, and convert all fixes and intersections along 
that route to RNAV waypoints.

FAA's Conclusions

    The FAA has reviewed the Patuxent VORTAC decommissioning project 
and determined that additional planning meetings are warranted to 
ensure a more efficient implementation and integration with other 
ongoing program activities; therefore, the NPRM is withdrawn.
