Following are short synopses of the information collection activities which will be submitted to OMB for review and request for renewal:
1. 2120-0001, Notice of Proposed Construction or Alteration and Notice of Actual Construction or Alteration, and Project Status Request.

The reporting requirements as prescribed in 14 CFR Part 77 affects any persons or business planning to construct or alter a structure that may affect air safety. The information is used to ensure the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace by aircraft. The Start Printed Page 10559current estimated annual reporting burden on the public is 8,820 hours.
2. 2120-0022, Certification: Mechanics Repairmen, Parachute Riggers, and Inspection Authorizations, FAR-65.

The current estimated annual burden is 28,943 hours.
3. 2120-0056, Report of Inspections Required by Airworthiness Directives. The Airworthiness Directive (AD) is the medium used by the FAA to provide notice to aircraft owners and operators that an unsafe condition exists and to prescribe the conditions and/or limitations, including inspections, under which the product may continue to be operated. AD's are issued to require corrective action to correct unsafe conditions in aircraft engines, propellers, and appliances. Reports of inspections are often needed when emergency corrective action is taken to determine if the action was adequate to correct the unsafe condition. The respondents are an estimated 81,000 owners/operators. The current estimated annual burden is 6,771 hours.
4. 2120-0101, Physiological training. This report is necessary to establish qualifications of eligibility to receive voluntary physiological training and will be used as proper evidence of training. An application form is completed by pilots and crewmembers as a request to receive voluntary physiological training. The current estimated annual burden is 5,500 hours.
5. 2120-0524, High Density Traffic airports; Slot Allocation and Transfer Methods. The information collection requirements of the rule involve the air carriers or commuter operators notifying the FAA of their current and planned activities regarding use of the arrival and departure slots at the high-density airports. The FAA logs, verifies, and processes the requests made by the operators. This information is used to allocate and withdraw takeoff and landing slots at the high-density airports, and confirms transfers of slots made among the operators. The current estimated annual burden is 2,581 hours.
