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. Background The aviation industry/users have indicated a desire for the FAA to transition the Alaskan en route navigation structure away from the dependency on NDBs. The advances in technology have allowed for alternate navigation methods to support decommissioning of high cost ground navigation equipment. The FAA has included OSE on their schedule to be decommissioned. A non-rulemaking study was conducted in accordance with FAA Order JO 7400.2, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters. As a result, the FAA received no objections to its removal. Colored Federal airways B–7 and G– 9 are dependent on OSE and will result in the airways being unusable once decommissioning occurs. Therefore, the FAA is proposing to revoke B–7 and G– 9. The proposed revocation of B–7 can be mitigated currently by utilizing VHF Omnidirectional Radar (VOR) Federal airways V–462 and V–350 and in the future the FAA will propose a United States Area Navigation (RNAV) route to overlay the current B–7. The proposed revocation of G–9 is mitigated by VOR Federal airway V–319 and RNAV route T–269 that currently overlay the route.

G–9: G–9 currently navigates between OSE and the Cairn Mountain, AK, NDB. The FAA proposes to revoke the route in its entirety. Colored Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009(a) and 6009(d) 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 Colored Federal airways listed in this document would be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11.

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.

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 document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 
lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service 
routes, and reporting points.

Background

    The aviation industry/users have indicated a desire for the FAA to 
transition the Alaskan en route navigation structure away from the 
dependency on NDBs. The advances in technology have allowed for 
alternate navigation methods to support decommissioning of high cost 
ground navigation equipment. The FAA has included OSE on their schedule 
to be decommissioned. A non-rulemaking study was conducted in 
accordance with FAA Order JO 7400.2, Procedures for Handling Airspace 
Matters. As a result, the FAA received no objections to its removal.
    Colored Federal airways B-7 and G-9 are dependent on OSE and will 
result in the airways being unusable once decommissioning occurs. 
Therefore, the FAA is proposing to revoke B-7 and G-9. The proposed 
revocation of B-7 can be mitigated currently by utilizing VHF 
Omnidirectional Radar (VOR) Federal airways V-462 and V-350 and in the 
future the FAA will propose a United States Area Navigation (RNAV) 
route to overlay the current B-7. The proposed revocation of G-9 is 
mitigated by VOR Federal airway V-319 and RNAV route T-269 that 
currently overlay the route.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to revoke 
Colored Federal airways B-7 and G-9 in the vicinity of Bethel, AK due 
to the decommissioning of OSE.
    B-7: B-7 currently navigates between the Cape Newenham, AK, NDB and 
OSE. The FAA proposes to revoke the route in its entirety.
    G-9: G-9 currently navigates between OSE and the Cairn Mountain, 
AK, NDB. The FAA proposes to revoke the route in its entirety.
    Colored Federal airways are published in paragraph 6009(a) and 
6009(d) 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 Colored Federal airways 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.

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.
