V–36: V–36 extends between the Thunder Bay, ON, Canada, VOR/DME and the intersection of the Wiarton, ON, Canada, VOR/DME 150° radial and Toronto, ON, Canada, VOR/DME 304° radial (BIGBE fix); and between the Elmira, NY, VOR/DME and the intersection of the La Guardia, NY, VOR/DME 310° and Stillwater, NJ, VOR/DME 043° radials (NEION fix). The airspace within Canada is excluded. This action removes the airway segment between the Thunder Bay, ON, Canada, VOR/DME and Wawa, ON, Canada, VOR/DME; and the airway segment between the Sault Ste. Marie, MI, VOR/ DME and the intersection of the Wiarton, ON, Canada, VOR/DME 150° radial and Toronto, ON, Canada, VOR/ DME 304° radial (BIGBE fix). The resulting airway extends between the Wawa, ON, Canada, VOR/DME and the Sault Ste. Marie, MI, VOR/DME; and between the Elmira, NY, VOR/DME and the intersection of the La Guardia, NY, VOR/DME 310° and Stillwater, NJ, VOR/DME 043° radials (NEION fix). The airspace within Canada remains excluded. V–316: V–316 currently extends between the Ironwood, MI, VOR/DME and the Sawyer, MI, VOR/DME; and between the Sault Ste. Marie, MI, VOR/ DME and the Sudbury, ON, Canada, VOR/DME. The airspace in Canada is excluded. This action removes the airway segment between the Sault Ste. Marie, MI, VOR/DME and the Sudbury, ON, Canada, VOR/DME, and the exclusionary language. The resulting airway extends between the Ironwood, MI, VOR/DME and the Sawyer, MI, VOR/DME. V–180: V–180 currently extends between the International Falls, MN, VOR/DME and the Dryden, ON, Canada, NDB. The airspace within Canada is excluded. The airway is revoked in its entirety. All radials in the VOR Federal airway descriptions below are unchanged and stated in True degrees. FAA Order JO 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:32 Nov 22, 2021 Jkt 256001 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 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 The FAA has determined that this action of amending VOR Federal airways V–36 and V–316; and revoking VOR Federal airway V–180, to mirror changes being made by NAV CANADA in Canadian airspace in support of their Navigational Aid Modernization program, 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, 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.

The automatic assignment of class III occurs by operation of law and without any action by FDA, regardless of the level of risk posed by the new device. Any device that was not in commercial distribution before May 28, 1976, is automatically classified as, and remains within, class III and requires premarket approval unless and until FDA takes an action to classify or reclassify the device (see 21 U.S.C. 360c(f)(1)).

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 modifies the route structure as necessary to preserve 
the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the NAS.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2021-0288, in the Federal Register (86 FR 24798; May 10, 2021), 
amending T-348 and establishing T-409. The proposed action expands the 
availability of RNAV routing in support of transitioning the NAS from 
ground-based to satellite-based navigation. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
    United States Area Navigation 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 will be published subsequently 
in FAA JO Order 7400.11.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations 
and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 
15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 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 amending RNAV route T-348 and 
establishing RNAV route T-409. This action is necessary to support the 
FAA's Next Generation Air Transportation System efforts to transition 
of the NAS from ground-based to satellite-based navigation.
    The RNAV route actions are described below.
    T-348: T-348 extends between the BRAIN, MN, waypoint (WP) and the 
LUNGS, WI, WP. This action extends the route between the LESNR, SD, WP 
and the BRAIN, MN, WP. As a result of this route segment addition, the 
BRAIN WP will remain in place, but will no longer be referenced in the 
legal description. The new route flows from the LESNR WP, through the 
TECUD, SD, fix and Sioux Falls, SD, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation 
(VORTAC), to the GRSIS, MN, WP, onward. The resulting RNAV route 
extends between the LESNR WP and the LUNGS WP.
    T-409: T-409 is a new RNAV route that extends between the LLUKY, 
NE, WP and the Pierre, SD, VORTAC. For RNAV equipped aircraft, this 
route mitigates the loss of the V-71 airway segments removed on 
September 10, 2020, due to the decommissioning of the Winner, SD, VOR. 
Non-equipped aircraft can request ATC radar vectors to fly around or 
through the area or take advantage of any adjacent VOR Federal airways.
    FAA Order JO 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 will only affect air traffic 
procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this 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

    The FAA has determined that this action of amending RNAV T-348 and 
establishing RNAV T-409, in support of efforts transitioning the NAS 
from ground-based to satellite-based navigation, 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, 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. Accordingly, the FAA 
has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant 
preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact 
study.
