Document Number: 2020-18284
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Dunn County Weydahl Field, Killdeer, ND, and New Town Municipal Airport, New Town, ND. This action is the result of the new public instrument procedures being established at these airports.
Revocation, Amendment, and Establishment of Multiple Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes Due to the Decommissioning of the Greene County, MS, VOR
Document Number: 2020-18253
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action removes Jet Route J-590, amends VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-11 and V-70, and establishes Area Navigation (RNAV) routes T-362 and T-365. The FAA is taking this action due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Greene County, MS (GCV), VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID). The Greene County VOR is being decommissioned in support of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Amendment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Route T-354; Northcentral United States.
Document Number: 2020-18252
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Area Navigation (RNAV) route T-354 in the northcentral United States. The modified T-route expands the availability of RNAV routing in support of the FAA's Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) modernization efforts to transition the National Airspace System (NAS) from a ground-based to satellite- based Performance Based Navigation (PBN) system. The RNAV route T-325 modifications proposed in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) require additional coordination and flight inspection activities. As such, the T-325 modifications are removed from this rule.
Amendment and Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes; Northeastern United States
Document Number: 2020-18046
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends low altitude RNAV route T-300, and establish low altitude RNAV routes T-391, T-393, and T-395 in the northeastern United States. The changes reduce the dependency of the National Airspace System (NAS) on ground-based navigational systems, and assist with the transition to a more efficient Performance Based Navigation (PBN) route structure. This action also provides RNAV routing in support the FAA's VOR Minimum Operating Network (VOR MON) program.

This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
