Amendment of Multiple Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes in the Vicinity of Omaha, NE
Document Number: 2019-15117
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is amending three jet routes and seven VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways in the vicinity of Omaha, Nebraska, to correct the state abbreviation for the Omaha VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID). The Omaha VORTAC is located in Mineola, Iowa; however, the state abbreviation for the location of the Omaha VORTAC included in the Air Traffic Service (ATS) routes is listed as ``NE''. Specifically, this action changes the state abbreviation for the Omaha VORTAC listed in the jet route J-21, J-41, and J-151, and VOR Federal airway V-6, V-8, V-138, V-159, V-172, V-181, and V-307, descriptions from ``NE'' to ``IA'' to match the information contained in the FAA's aeronautical database and the charted ATS route depictions on the associated charts. No air traffic services are affected by this action.
Amendment of Air Traffic Service (ATS) Route T-331; Western United States
Document Number: 2019-15116
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-17

The modification is necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the Clovis, CA, VOR portion of the VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID), which provides navigation guidance for portions of affected ATS route V-23. The decommissioning has rendered portions of V-23 unusable and amending T-331 helps overcome affected portions of V-23. The Clovis, CA, VOR is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
