Notice and request for comments.


In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for a new information collection. In accordance with FAA Order JO 1030.4, ATO SysOps Services SMS Oversight, the FAA ATO System Operations Management, Safety Assurance Group (SAG) is conducting a comprehensive assessment of the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) Realignment Phase 1 (NRP-1) process to determine if unacceptable hazards exist within the National Airspace System (NAS). Essential to the assessment is a survey of airline and corporate pilots and dispatchers as well as airport operators and general aviation pilots. The SAG survey will be compared with results of a similar survey conducted in 2008 by the FAA Office of Safety (AJS).


Written comments should be submitted by November 8, 2010.
