The FAA solicits comments on any of the current Start Printed Page 48900collections of information in order to evaluate the necessity of the collection, the accuracy of the agency's estimate of burden, the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and possible ways to minimize the burden of collection. Also note, that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
Following are short synopses of the four information collection activities that will be submitted to OMB for requests for renewal:

The reporting and recordkeeping requirements of 14 CFR part 91 prescribe rules governing the operation of aircraft (other than moored balloons, kites, rockets and unmanned free balloons) within the United States. The reporting and recordkeeping requirements prescribed by various sections of Part 91 are necessary for FAA to ensure compliance with these provisions. The respondents are individual airmen, state or local governments, and businesses. The current estimated annual burden is 230,000 hours.
2. 2120-0517, Airport Noise Compatibility Planning 14 CFR part 150.

3. 2120-0638, Security Programs for Foreign Air Carriers, 14 CFR part 129.

The respondents are foreign air carriers. The current estimated annual burden is 5,200 hours.
4. 2120-0669, Flight Data Recorder Resolution Requirements. The information will be used by the FAA to track compliance with the underlying regulation, 14 CFR 121.344 et al, and to determine who will be affected by any subsequent FAA action to resolve the problems described by the manufacturer.
