For a person to enroll in the FAA's “Washington, DC Area Training Program,” the rule requires persons to electronically furnish their names, residence addresses, and pilot certificate numbers.

Title: Special Awareness Training for the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.

Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this collection.

Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.

Background: The final rule containing this information collection requirement was published on August 12, 2008 (73 FR 46797).

This National database registry provides the FAA with information on how many persons and the names of those who have completed this training. This information is needed so that the FAA can answer to the U.S. Congress on the success of this program.

Respondents: Approximately 366 pilots.

Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 1 hour.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 122 hours.

Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.
