SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 1, 2010, the final rule, “Certification of Aircraft and Airmen for the Operation of Light-Sport Aircraft; Modifications to Rules for Sport Pilots and Flight Instructors With a Sport Pilot Rating” was published in the Federal Register (75 FR 5204). In that rule, the FAA amended its requirements for sport pilots and flight instructors with a sport pilot rating to address airman certification and operational issues that arose after regulations for the certification of aircraft and airmen for the operation of light-sport aircraft were implemented in 2004.

In the DATES section of the final rule, the FAA noted that affected parties were not required to comply with the new information collection requirements in § 91.417 (incorrectly referenced in the DATES section as § 91.419) until OMB approved the FAA's request to collect the information. Paragraph (a) of § 91.417 contained a new requirement for owners and operators of special light-sport aircraft (SLSA) to retain a record of the current status of applicable safety directives and transfer that information at the time of the sale of that aircraft. That information collection requirement had not been approved by OMB at the time of publication.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the FAA submitted a copy of the new information collection requirements to OMB for its review. OMB approved the collection on July 7, 2010, and assigned the information collection OMB Control Number 2120-0730, which expires on July 31, 2013.

This document is being published to inform affected parties of the approval, and to announce that the new information collection requirement of § 91.417 (a) became effective on July 7, 2010.
