The proposed route is described below. T–235: The FAA proposes to amend T–235 by extending the route from the FILEV, AK, WP to the ZISDU, AK, WP. From the ZISDU, AK, WP, the route would provide guidance to the Nuiqsut Airport (PAQT), AK via the JATIL, AK, WP and the ZADRO, AK, WP. Finally, the route would extend east from the ZADRO, AK, WP to the Deadhorse, AK, (SCC) VOR/DME. United States Area Navigation 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 listed in this document would be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11. 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 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. * * * * BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2021–1030; Airspace Docket No. 21–ASW–10] khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 1.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021 and effective September 15, 2021. FAA Order 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend VOR Federal airways V–47, V–54, V–69, V– 94, V–140, V–278, V–305, and remove V–397, in support of the FAA’s VOR MON program. The proposed route changes are described below. V–47: V–47 currently consists of two separate parts: From Pine Bluff, AR, to Pocket City, IN; and From Cincinnati, KY, to Flag City, OH. The FAA proposes to remove the segments from Pine Bluff, AR, to Dyersburg, TN. Therefore, the first part of V–47 would extend from Cunningham, KY, to Pocket City, IN. The second part of the route would extend from Cincinnati, KY to Flag City, OH, as currently charted. V–54: V–54 currently consists of two separate parts: From Waco, TX, to Cedar Creek, TX; and From Texarkana, AR, to Kinston, NC. The FAA proposes to remove the segments from Marvell, AR, to Charlotte, NC. This would configure V–54 into three parts: From Waco, TX, to Cedar Creek, TX; From Texarkana, AR, to Little Rock, AR; and From Sandhills, NC, to Kinston, NC. V–69: V–69 currently extends from El Dorado, AR, to Joliet, IL. The FAA PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 70777 proposes to remove the segments from El Dorado, AR, to Walnut Ridge, AR. As amended, V–69 would extend from Farmington, MO to Joliet, IL. V–94: V–94 currently consists of two parts: From Blythe, CA, to Tuscola, TX; and From Cedar Creek, TX, to Holly Springs, MS. The FAA is proposing to remove the final segment from Greenville, MS, to Holly Springs, MS. As amended, V–94 would extend from Blythe, CA, to Tuscola, TX; and from Cedar Creek, TX to Greenville, MS. V–140: V–140 currently consists of two parts: From Panhandle, TX, to London, KY; and from Bluefield, WV, to Casanova, VA. The FAA proposes to remove the Walnut Ridge, AR, Dyersburg, TN, and Hazard, KY, navigation aids from V–140. As a result, V–140 would consist of the following three parts: From Panhandle, TX, to Harrison, AR; From Nashville, TN, to London, KY; and From Bluefield, WV, to Casanova, VA. Other changes to V– 140 are being proposed in a separate docket action. V–278: V–278 currently consists of two parts: From Texico, NM, to Plainview, TX; and from Bowie, TX, to Vulcan, AL. The FAA proposes to remove the segments from Monticello, AR, to Vulcan, AL. The first part of V– 278 would remain unchanged. The second part of the route would be amended as follows: From Bowie, TX; Bonham, TX; Paris, TX; Texarkana, AR; to INT Texarkana 088°(T)/081°(M) and Eldorado, AR 034°(T)/027°(M) radials. Note: When new radials are proposed in an NPRM both True (T) and Magnetic (M) degrees are stated. Only True degrees will be stated in the final rule. V–305: V–305 currently extends from El Dorado, AR, to Kokomo, IN. The FAA proposes to remove Walnut Ridge, AR, and Malden, MO, from the route. This would split V–305 into two separate parts as follows: From Eldorado, AR, to Little Rock, AR; and From Cunningham, KY, to Kokomo, IN. Other changes to V– 305 are being proposed in a separate docket action. V–397: V–397 currently extends from Monroe, LA, to Marvell, AR. The FAA proposes to remove the entire route. Full route descriptions of the above routes are listed in ‘‘The Proposed Amendment’’ section of this NPRM. Domestic VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 VOR Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published in the FAA Order JO 7400.11.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021 and effective 
September 15, 2021. FAA Order 7400.11F is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 
lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service 
routes, and reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend VOR 
Federal airways V-47, V-54, V-69, V-94, V-140, V-278, V-305, and remove 
V-397, in support of the FAA's VOR MON program. The proposed route 
changes are described below.
    V-47: V-47 currently consists of two separate parts: From Pine 
Bluff, AR, to Pocket City, IN; and From Cincinnati, KY, to Flag City, 
OH. The FAA proposes to remove the segments from Pine Bluff, AR, to 
Dyersburg, TN. Therefore, the first part of V-47 would extend from 
Cunningham, KY, to Pocket City, IN. The second part of the route would 
extend from Cincinnati, KY to Flag City, OH, as currently charted.
    V-54: V-54 currently consists of two separate parts: From Waco, TX, 
to Cedar Creek, TX; and From Texarkana, AR, to Kinston, NC. The FAA 
proposes to remove the segments from Marvell, AR, to Charlotte, NC. 
This would configure V-54 into three parts: From Waco, TX, to Cedar 
Creek, TX; From Texarkana, AR, to Little Rock, AR; and From Sandhills, 
NC, to Kinston, NC.
    V-69: V-69 currently extends from El Dorado, AR, to Joliet, IL. The 
FAA proposes to remove the segments from El Dorado, AR, to Walnut 
Ridge, AR. As amended, V-69 would extend from Farmington, MO to Joliet, 
IL.
    V-94: V-94 currently consists of two parts: From Blythe, CA, to 
Tuscola, TX; and From Cedar Creek, TX, to Holly Springs, MS. The FAA is 
proposing to remove the final segment from Greenville, MS, to Holly 
Springs, MS. As amended, V-94 would extend from Blythe, CA, to Tuscola, 
TX; and from Cedar Creek, TX to Greenville, MS.
    V-140: V-140 currently consists of two parts: From Panhandle, TX, 
to London, KY; and from Bluefield, WV, to Casanova, VA. The FAA 
proposes to remove the Walnut Ridge, AR, Dyersburg, TN, and Hazard, KY, 
navigation aids from V-140. As a result, V-140 would consist of the 
following three parts: From Panhandle, TX, to Harrison, AR; From 
Nashville, TN, to London, KY; and From Bluefield, WV, to Casanova, VA. 
Other changes to V-140 are being proposed in a separate docket action.
    V-278: V-278 currently consists of two parts: From Texico, NM, to 
Plainview, TX; and from Bowie, TX, to Vulcan, AL. The FAA proposes to 
remove the segments from Monticello, AR, to Vulcan, AL. The first part 
of V-278 would remain unchanged. The second part of the route would be 
amended as follows: From Bowie, TX; Bonham, TX; Paris, TX; Texarkana, 
AR; to INT Texarkana 088[deg](T)/081[deg](M) and Eldorado, AR 
034[deg](T)/027[deg](M) radials. Note: When new radials are proposed in 
an NPRM both True (T) and Magnetic (M) degrees are stated. Only True 
degrees will be stated in the final rule.
    V-305: V-305 currently extends from El Dorado, AR, to Kokomo, IN. 
The FAA proposes to remove Walnut Ridge, AR, and Malden, MO, from the 
route. This would split V-305 into two separate parts as follows: From 
Eldorado, AR, to Little Rock, AR; and From Cunningham, KY, to Kokomo, 
IN. Other changes to V-305 are being proposed in a separate docket 
action.
    V-397: V-397 currently extends from Monroe, LA, to Marvell, AR. The 
FAA proposes to remove the entire route.
    Full route descriptions of the above routes are listed in ``The 
Proposed Amendment'' section of this NPRM.
    Domestic VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 VOR 
Federal airways listed in this document would be subsequently published 
in the FAA Order JO 7400.11.

    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 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.
