Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; delay of effective date, and correction.

SUMMARY:

This action changes the effective date of a final rule published in the Federal Register on June 9, 2015, amending VOR Federal airways V-31, V-36, V-98, V-164 and V-252 in the northeastern United States. The FAA is taking this action to link the effective date of the airway amendments with the completion of the development of associated en route procedures. In addition, this action corrects the description of Federal airway V-36 by restoring certain segments of that route that were removed in the final rule.

DATES:

The effective date of the final rule published on June 9, 2015, is delayed from August 20, 2015, to October 15, 2015. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments.

Background

Docket No. FAA-2015-1650, Airspace Docket No. 14-AEA-8, published in the Federal Register on June 9 2015 (80 FR 32464), amends VOR Federal airways V-31, V-36, V-98, V-164 and V-252 by removing certain segments in Canadian airspace. The development of associated en route procedures are planned for October 15, 2015, therefore the rule amending these airways is delayed until that date.

Additionally, subsequent to publication of the final rule, it was determined that an error was made in the description of Federal airway V-36, whereby the airway segments between Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and the intersection of radials from the Wiarton, Ontario, Canada, and the Toronto, Ontario, Canada, navigation aids were inadvertently removed. This action corrects the description of V-36 by reinserting the missing airway segments.

Domestic VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.9Y, dated August 6, 2014, and effective September 15, 2014, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal Airway listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order.

Delay of Effective Date

Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the effective Start Printed Page 48428date of the final rule, Airspace Docket 14-AEA-8, as published in the Federal Register on June 9, 2015 (80 FR 32464), is hereby delayed until October 15, 2015.

Correction to Final Rule

Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the description of VOR Federal airway V-36 as published in the Federal Register on June 9, 2015 (80 FR 32464) (FR Doc. 2015-13980) for Federal airway V-36, is corrected under the description for V-36 as follows:

Paragraph 6010(a) Domestic VOR Federal Airways

* * * * *

V-36 [Corrected]
