Background Back to Top

On September 19, 2011, the FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register amending and establishing nine ATS routes in the northeast United States (76 FR 57902). Subsequent to publication a more accurate alignment was calculated for the establishment of the CANDR WP position of RNAV route Q-480. The refined coordinates result in a minor change of the CANDR position that is 0.28 nautical miles (NM) north of the original location. This equates to a move of approximately 1,700 feet which is well within the standard 8 NM width of RNAV routes. Since the coordinates in air traffic service route descriptions are rounded to the nearest second, the amended CANDR position is listed as “lat. 40°58′16″ N., long. 74°57′35″ W.”

Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA Order 7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV route listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Correction to Final Rule Back to Top

Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the coordinates for the CANDR waypoint as published in the Federal Register on September 19, 2011 (76 FR 57902) (FR Doc. 2011-23839) for RNAV route Q-480, is corrected under the description as follows:
