SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On July 5, 2000, the FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 71 (part 71) to eliminate a segment of V-382 (65 FR 41388). This action was considered necessary due to the failure of repeated flight inspections on this segment of V-382. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Except of editorial changes, this amendment is the same as that proposed in the notice.

The Rule

The FAA is amending part 71 to modify V-382 by eliminating the route segment between Bryce Canyon and Grand Junction, CO, VORTAC. Since 1998, V-382 has been unusable between Bryce Canyon, UT, VORTAC and the Grand Junction, CO, VORTAC. This segment of V-382 no longer passes flight inspection and is out of service. The action retains the route segment from Grand Junction, CO, VORTAC to Durango, CO, VORTAC.

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.

Domestic VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 Domestic VOR Federal airway listed in this document would be published subsequently in the order.
