    History

    The FAA published a NPRM in the Federal Register for Docket No. FAA-2016-9556 (82 FR 1276; January 5, 2017). The NPRM proposed 12 new Q-routes (Q-75, Q-97, Q-167, Q-220, Q-411, Q-419, Q-430, Q-437, Q-439, Q-445, Q-450 and Q-479); and existing route Q-480, along the Atlantic Coast, in the northeastern U.S.

    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received.

    FAA's Conclusions

    The FAA has reviewed project scoping and determined that additional planning is warranted to ensure a more efficient implementation and integration with other ongoing program activities; therefore, the NPRM is withdrawn.
