Change of Using Agency for Restricted Areas R-3008A, B, C, and D; Grand Bay Weapons Range, GA
This action changes the name of the using agency for Restricted Areas R-3008A, B, C, and D, Grand Bay Weapons Range, GA, from ``U.S. Air Force, 347th Rescue Wing, Moody AFB, GA'' to ``U.S. Air Force, 23rd Wing, Moody AFB, GA.'' As a result of the Base Realignment and Closure process, the 347th Rescue Wing was officially redesignated the 23rd Wing effective October 1, 2006. This is an administrative change that does not alter the boundaries, designated altitudes, time of designation, or activities conducted within the affected restricted areas.
IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments
This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas.
Notice of Availability of the Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment (FSEA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Record of Decision (ROD), Related to the Proposed Modification to the Four Corner-Post Plan at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, NV
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces the availability of the Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment (FSEA), and Finding of No Significant Impact and Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) for the proposed modification to the Four Corner-Post Plan at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada. The FSEA and FONSI/ROD were prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,'' and other applicable environmental laws and regulations. The FSEA and FONSI/ROD assess the effects of the relevant environmental impact categories for the proposed Federal action under consideration in the proposed modification of the STAAV Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Departure (SID) to accommodate eastbound departures from Runway 25. The STAAV RNAV SID was implemented as part of the Four Corner-Post Plan at McCarran International Airport (LAS), Las Vegas, Nevada, in October 2001. The proposed Federal action is required to address the air traffic and airspace inefficiencies for departure traffic resulting from increased demand at LAS, and to recapture the efficiency that was lost from the reduction in the use of the right-turn procedure from Runway 25 as part of the 2001 LAS 4CP. Modification of the STAAV departure procedure to accommodate eastbound departures will provide an additional route for some eastbound departures, and reduce the time needed between successive departures, resulting in improved airspace efficiency and reduced departure delays. The FSEA and FONSI/ROD may be reviewed for comment during regular business hours at the following locations: 1. Nevada State Library and Archives, 100 Stewart St., Las Vegas, NV 89710. 2. Las Vegas Branch Library, 509 S. 9th St., Las Vegas, NV 89101- 7010. 3. Las Vegas Library, 833 Las Vegas Blvd. N, Las Vegas, NV 89101- 2004. 4. Meadows Library, 300 W.
