SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 would modify the VOR Federal airway route structure in the eastern United States to maintain the efficient flow of air traffic. Comments Invited Interested parties are invited to participate in this proposed rulemaking by submitting such written data, views, or arguments as they may desire. Comments that provide the factual basis supporting the views and suggestions presented are particularly helpful in developing reasoned regulatory decisions on the proposal. Comments are specifically invited on the overall regulatory, aeronautical, economic, environmental, and energy-related aspects of the proposal.

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 JO 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 modify VOR Federal airways V–7, V–9, and V–11 in the eastern United States due to the planned decommissioning of the Dyersburg, TN, (DYR); Malden, MO, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Dec 13, 2021 Jkt 256001 (MAW); and the Muscle Shoals, AL, (MSL) VORTACs as part of the FAA VOR MON program. The proposed route changes are described below. V–7: V–7 currently consists of three separate parts: From Dolphin, FL, to Muscle Shoals, AL; From Pocket City, IN, to the intersection of radials from the Chicago Heights, IL, and Badger, WI, navigation aids; and From Green Bay, WI, to Sawyer, MI. The FAA proposes to amend the first part of the route by removing the segment between Vulcan, AL, and Muscle Shoals, AL. As amended, the first part of V–7 would extend between Dolphin, FL, and Montgomery, AL. Parts two and three of the route would remain unchanged. Additionally, the current legal description of V–7 contains the following statements: ‘‘The airspace below 2,000 feet MSL outside the United States is excluded. The portion outside the United States has no upper limit.’’ A review of aeronautical charts revealed that no part of V–7 extends outside of United States airspace. Therefore, the FAA intends to remove the statements from the legal description. Other changes to V–7 are being proposed in a separate docket action. V–9: V–9 currently consists of two separate parts: From Leeville, LA, to Pontiac, IL; and from Janesville, WI, to Houghton, MI. The FAA proposes to remove the airway segments between Sidon, MS, and Malden, MO, from the first part of the route. As a result, the first part of the route would extend between Leeville, LA, and Magnolia, MS. This proposal would move the start point for the second part of the route from Janesville, WI, to Farmington, MO. The second part of the route would extend from Farmington to Pontiac, IL. V–9 would then consist of a third part from Janesville, WI, to Houghton, MI. V–11: V–11 currently extends between Magnolia, MS. and the intersection of the Fort Wayne, IN, 038°, and the Flag City, OH, 308° radials. The FAA proposes to remove the segments between Magnolia, MS, and Dyersburg, TN. As amended, V–11 would extend between Cunningham, KY and the intersection of the Fort Wayne, IN, 038°, and the Flag City, OH, 308° radials, as currently charted. 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 FAA Order JO 7400.11. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 70993 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.

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 JO 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 modify VOR 
Federal airways V-7, V-9, and V-11 in the eastern United States due to 
the planned decommissioning of the Dyersburg, TN, (DYR); Malden, MO, 
(MAW); and the Muscle Shoals, AL, (MSL) VORTACs as part of the FAA VOR 
MON program. The proposed route changes are described below.
    V-7: V-7 currently consists of three separate parts: From Dolphin, 
FL, to Muscle Shoals, AL; From Pocket City, IN, to the intersection of 
radials from the Chicago Heights, IL, and Badger, WI, navigation aids; 
and From Green Bay, WI, to Sawyer, MI. The FAA proposes to amend the 
first part of the route by removing the segment between Vulcan, AL, and 
Muscle Shoals, AL. As amended, the first part of V-7 would extend 
between Dolphin, FL, and Montgomery, AL. Parts two and three of the 
route would remain unchanged. Additionally, the current legal 
description of V-7 contains the following statements: ``The airspace 
below 2,000 feet MSL outside the United States is excluded. The portion 
outside the United States has no upper limit.'' A review of 
aeronautical charts revealed that no part of V-7 extends outside of 
United States airspace. Therefore, the FAA intends to remove the 
statements from the legal description. Other changes to V-7 are being 
proposed in a separate docket action.
    V-9: V-9 currently consists of two separate parts: From Leeville, 
LA, to Pontiac, IL; and from Janesville, WI, to Houghton, MI. The FAA 
proposes to remove the airway segments between Sidon, MS, and Malden, 
MO, from the first part of the route. As a result, the first part of 
the route would extend between Leeville, LA, and Magnolia, MS. This 
proposal would move the start point for the second part of the route 
from Janesville, WI, to Farmington, MO. The second part of the route 
would extend from Farmington to Pontiac, IL. V-9 would then consist of 
a third part from Janesville, WI, to Houghton, MI.
    V-11: V-11 currently extends between Magnolia, MS. and the 
intersection of the Fort Wayne, IN, 038[deg], and the Flag City, OH, 
308[deg] radials. The FAA proposes to remove the segments between 
Magnolia, MS, and Dyersburg, TN. As amended, V-11 would extend between 
Cunningham, KY and the intersection of the Fort Wayne, IN, 038[deg], 
and the Flag City, OH, 308[deg] radials, as currently charted.
    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 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.
