1. Title: Commercial Space Transportation Licensing Regulations.

Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Control Number: 2120-0608.

Form(s): N/A.

Affected Public: An estimated 6 licensees authorized to conduct licensed launch activities.

Abstract: The required information will be used to determine if applicant proposals for conducting commercial space launches can be accomplished in a safe manner according to regulations and license orders issued by the Office of the Associate Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation.

2. Title: Changes in Permissible Stage 2 Airplane Operations.

Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.

OMB Control Number: 2120-0652.

Form(s): N/A.

Affected Public: 100 operators.

Abstract: Public Law amended the Airport Noise and Capacity Act (ANCA) of 1990. The primary focus of ANCA was the prohibition on stage 2 airplane flights in the contiguous U.S. after 12/31/99. The changes to ANCA give the FAA new authority to allow certain non-revenue Stage 2 flights after the statutory compliance date. Operators need a special flight authorization to bring Stage 2 airplanes into the United States. Operators only need to provide information when they need a special flight authorization after 12/31/99. Only minimal amount of data is requested to identify the affected parties and determine whether the purpose for the flight is only of the ones enumerated in the law.

Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 25 burden hours annually.
