DOCUMENT ACTION: Final rule.
Revision of Jet Route 10
EFFECTIVE DATES: 0901 UTC, September 4, 2003.
This action revises Jet Route 10 (J-10) between the
Farmington, NM, Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Radio Range and
Tactical Air Navigation Aids (VORTAC), and the HIPPI intersection. The
current J10 route is aligned from Farmington, NM, via the Drake, AZ,
VORTAC, to the HIPPI intersection. This action realigns J10 from
Farmington, NM, to the Flagstaff VORTAC, to the HIPPI intersection.
This change is part of the FAA's National Airspace Redesign effort and
is intended to improve the management of aircraft operations in Arizona.
On February 26, 2002, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice proposing to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to revise J10, between Farmington, NM, VORTAC, and the HIPPI intersection (67 FR 8743). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.
This action amends 14 CFR part 71 to revise J10 between the Farmington, NM, VORTAC, and the HIPPI intersection. The current J10 route is aligned from Farmington, NM, via the Drake, AZ, VORTAC, to the HIPPI intersection. This action realigns J10 from Farmington, NM, to the Flagstaff VORTAC, to the HIPPI intersection. This change is part of the FAA's National Airspace Redesign effort and is intended to improve the management of aircraft operations in Arizona.
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 Department of Transportation (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 7400.9J dated August 31, 2001, and effective September 16, 2001, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The jet route listed in this document would be published subsequently in the order.
In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1D, ``Policies and Procedures for Considering Environmental Impacts,'' and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, this action is not categorically excluded. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71
