Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
Notice and request for comments.
The FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve a current information collection. Wildlife strike data are collected to develop standards and monitor hazards to aviation. Data identify wildlife strike control requirements and provide in-service data on aircraft component failure.
On March 19, 2009 [74 FR 11698], the FAA proposed that bird strike information voluntarily reported to the Agency and entered into the FAA's Wildlife Hazard Database be designated by an FAA order as protected from public disclosure in accordance with the provisions of 14 CFR part 193, under 49 U.S.C. 40123. Comments from the public and aviation industry were solicited through April 20, 2009. Review of the comments found that the majority came from individuals who did not support protection of the data. The aviation industry provided very few comments and also showed little support. The FAA decided not to proceed with the Part 193 protection for the wildlife strike database. This notice seeks comments on the new adjusted burden imposed by the data collection based on more current figures than those reported when the collection was previously approved in 2007.
Please submit comments by August 4, 2009.Start Further Info
