Proposed Amendment of Class C Airspace at Nashville International Airport, TN; Informal Airspace Meeting, 70991-70992 [2021-26980]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 14, 2021 / Proposed Rules V–415: V–415 currently extends from the Montgomery, AL, (MGM) VORTAC to the intersection of the Spartanburg, SC, (SPA) VORTAC 101° and Charlotte, NC, (CLT) VOR/DME 229° radials. The FAA proposes to remove the entire route. V–417: V–417 currently extends from the Meridian, MS, (MEI) VORTAC to the Charleston, SC, (CHS) VORTAC. The FAA proposes to remove the entire route. V–463: V–463 currently extends from the intersection of the Harris, GA, (HRS) VORTAC 179° and Foothills, SC, (ODF) VOR/DME 222° radials, to the Harris VORTAC. The FAA proposes to remove the entire route. 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. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 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.

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. Communications should identify both docket numbers (FAA Docket No. FAA– 2021–1048; Airspace Docket No. 21– ASO–13) and be submitted in triplicate to the Docket Management Facility (see ADDRESSES section for address and phone number). You may also submit E:\FR\FM\14DEP1.SGM 14DEP1
