VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:53 Nov 05, 2021 Jkt 256001 61729 The Proposal Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend RNAV routes T–212, T–216, T–218, and T–221 in the eastern United States. The changes would consist of adding RNAV WPs to replace navigation aids that are scheduled for decommissioning. The changes would not affect navigation along the routes. T–212: T–212 currently extends between the RASHE, PA, Fix and the Putnam, CT, (PUT) VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME). Due to planned decommissioning of the Wilkes Barre, PA, (LVZ) VORTAC, it would be replaced by the WILKES, PA, WP, (located 60 feet northeast of the Wilkes Barre VORTAC. The Putnam, CT (PUT) VOR/DME would be replaced by the PUTNM, CT, WP (located 1.5 feet southwest of the Putnam VOR/DME). T–216: T–216 currently extends between the Phillipsburg, PA, (PSB) VORTAC and the Nantucket, MA, (ACK) VOR/DME. Because the Williamsport, PA, (FQM) VOR/DME is planned for decommissioning, it would be replaced by the LYKOM, PA, WP, (located 60 feet southwest of the Williamsport VOR/ DME). The currently published description of T–216 contains an exclusion of the airspace within restricted area R–4105. R–4105 was revoked by the FAA on November 17, 2014. Therefore, the exclusion will be removed from the route description. T–218: T–218 currently extends between the Stonyfork, PA, (SFK) VOR/ DME, and the Sparta, NJ, (SAX) VORTAC. The Stonyfork VOR/DME would be replaced by the DLMAR, PA, WP, (located 60 feet southeast of the Stonyfork VOR/DME). As amended, T– 218 would extend between the DELMAR WP and the Sparta VORTAC. T–221: T–221 currently extends between the MAZIE, PA, Fix and the Binghamton, NY, (CFB) VOR/DME. This action would replace the Allentown, PA, (FJC) VOR/DME with the EESTN, PA, WP (located 60 feet northeast of the Allentown VOR/DME). United States RNAV T-routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes listed in this document would be subsequently published in FAA Order JO 7400.11. FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is published yearly and effective on September 15. 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 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. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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.

routes T-212, T-216, T-218, and T-221 in the eastern United States. The 
changes would consist of adding RNAV WPs to replace navigation aids 
that are scheduled for decommissioning. The changes would not affect 
navigation along the routes.
    T-212: T-212 currently extends between the RASHE, PA, Fix and the 
Putnam, CT, (PUT) VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME). Due to 
planned decommissioning of the Wilkes Barre, PA, (LVZ) VORTAC, it would 
be replaced by the WILKES, PA, WP, (located 60 feet northeast of the 
Wilkes Barre VORTAC. The Putnam, CT (PUT) VOR/DME would be replaced by 
the PUTNM, CT, WP (located 1.5 feet southwest of the Putnam VOR/DME).
    T-216: T-216 currently extends between the Phillipsburg, PA, (PSB) 
VORTAC and the Nantucket, MA, (ACK) VOR/DME. Because the Williamsport, 
PA, (FQM) VOR/DME is planned for decommissioning, it would be replaced 
by the LYKOM, PA, WP, (located 60 feet southwest of the Williamsport 
VOR/DME). The currently published description of T-216 contains an 
exclusion of the airspace within restricted area R-4105. R-4105 was 
revoked by the FAA on November 17, 2014. Therefore, the exclusion will 
be removed from the route description.
    T-218: T-218 currently extends between the Stonyfork, PA, (SFK) 
VOR/DME, and the Sparta, NJ, (SAX) VORTAC. The Stonyfork VOR/DME would 
be replaced by the DLMAR, PA, WP, (located 60 feet southeast of the 
Stonyfork VOR/DME). As amended, T-218 would extend between the DELMAR 
WP and the Sparta VORTAC.
    T-221: T-221 currently extends between the MAZIE, PA, Fix and the 
Binghamton, NY, (CFB) VOR/DME. This action would replace the Allentown, 
PA, (FJC) VOR/DME with the EESTN, PA, WP (located 60 feet northeast of 
the Allentown VOR/DME).
    United States RNAV T-routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA 
Order JO 7400.11F, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 
2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV 
routes listed in this document would be subsequently published in FAA 
Order JO 7400.11.
    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 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.
