SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On June 29, 2000, the FAA was notified by Transport Canada that Camp Scott, BC, RBN was decommissioned. This decommissioning action affects J-501 within Canada.

The Rule

This action amends title 14 CFR part 71 (part 71) by amending the legal description of J-501 in Canadian airspace due to the decommissioning of the Camp Scott, BC, RBN. The FAA is taking this action to remove reference to the Camp Scott RBN in the description of J-501. The decommissioning of the Camp Scott RBN will generate a break in the J-501 between the Tofino, BC, RBN and the Sandspit, BC, very high frequency omnidirectional range/tactical air navigation facility. This action provides an uninterrupted route on J-501.

The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a “significant rule” under 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 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.

Jet routes are published in paragraph 2004 of FAA Order 7400.9H, dated September 1, 2000, and effective September 16, 2000, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this document will be published subsequently in the order.
