Notice of Availability of the Final Supplemental Environmental 
Assessment (FSEA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and 
Record of Decision (ROD), Related to the Proposed Modification to the 
Four Corner-Post Plan at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, Las 
Vegas, NV

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces the 
availability of the Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment (FSEA), 
and Finding of No Significant Impact and Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) 
for the proposed modification to the Four Corner-Post Plan at Las Vegas 
McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada.
    The FSEA and FONSI/ROD were prepared pursuant to the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, FAA Order 1050.1E, 
``Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,'' and other 
applicable environmental laws and regulations. The FSEA and FONSI/ROD 
assess the effects of the relevant environmental impact categories for 
the proposed Federal action under consideration in the proposed 
modification of the STAAV Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument 
Departure (SID) to accommodate eastbound departures from Runway 25. The 
STAAV RNAV SID was implemented as part of the Four Corner-Post Plan at 
McCarran International Airport (LAS), Las Vegas, Nevada, in October 
2001. The proposed Federal action is required to address the air 
traffic and airspace inefficiencies for departure traffic resulting 
from increased demand at LAS, and to recapture the efficiency that was 
lost

[[Page 67950]]

from the reduction in the use of the right-turn procedure from Runway 
25 as part of the 2001 LAS 4CP. Modification of the STAAV departure 
procedure to accommodate eastbound departures will provide an 
additional route for some eastbound departures, and reduce the time 
needed between successive departures, resulting in improved airspace 
efficiency and reduced departure delays.
