Therefore, the FAA solicits comments on the following collection of information in order to evaluate the necessity of the collection, the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden, the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and possible ways to minimize the burden of the collection in preparation for submission to approve the clearance of the following information collection.
Following is a summary of the new collection:
Title: Southwest Region Assessment of Aviation Examiners. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), through the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI), has undertaken an effort to improve aviation safety through collecting data on the quality of flight training and testing. This research requires that information be collected from general aviation (GA) pilots newly certificated by the FAA. Since GA pilot Start Printed Page 40731certification testing occurs repeatedly throughout the year, and we wish to capture the opinions and attitudes of respondents soon after their practical test flight. We will need to conduct multiple data collections, however it will be a different respondent each time. We estimate that we will be surveying approximately 1,500 pilots per year. With an average of 1 hour per pilot, the estimated annual reporting burden is 1,500 hours.Start Signature
