On March 17, 2006, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to modify VOR Federal Airways V-56 and V-290, and Colored Federal Airway G-13, NC, to remove unusable airway segments; and to establish low altitude RNAV route T-243 (71 FR 13789). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on this proposal to the FAA. Two comments were received, both in favor of the proposal. With the exception of editorial changes, this amendment is the same as that proposed in the notice.

The Rule

This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the descriptions of VOR Federal Airways V-56 and V-290, and Colored Federal Airway G-13, to delete segments based on nondirectional beacon (NDB) navigation aids that are no longer in service. This action also establishes a new Global Positioning System (GPS)/Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) RNAV route, designated T-243, to enhance IFR navigation in the Outer Banks area of North Carolina. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace in eastern North Carolina.

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.
