Title: Information for the Prevention of Aircraft Collisions on Runways at Towered Airports.
Type of Request: Approval of a new collection.
OMB Control Number: 2120-xxxx.
Affected Public: A total of 10,000 airport and aircraft operators.Start Printed Page 62651
Abstract: Runway incursions are a risk to the public traveling in aircraft. Reduction of runway incursions is listed by the DOT Office of the Inspector General as one of the top ten transportation management improvements needed, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has selected runway safety as one of their “most wanted” transportation safety improvements, and the FAA Administrator has directed that runway safety be one of the FAA's top five safety priorities. FAA has been concentrating on this issue for a decade and progress has been elusive, in part because of a lack of feedback from people working and flying on the runways in the NAS. Feedback from surveys will be used in the prevention of runway collisions and in the reduction of the severity and frequency of runway incursions.
Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 1,670 hours annually.
