Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


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 to renew an information collection. SFAR 36 (to part 121) relieves qualifying applicants involved in aircraft repair of the burden to obtain FAA approval of data developed by them for the major repairs on a case-by-case basis; and provides for one-time approvals.


Written comments should be submitted by August 22, 2011.

OMB Control Number: 2120-0507.

Title: Development of Major Repair Data.

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

Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.

Background: Amended Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) No. 36 allows authorized certificate holders (domestic repair stations, air carriers, air taxi operators of large aircraft, and commercial operators of large aircraft) to approve aircraft products and articles for return to service after accomplishing major repairs using data developed by the holder that have not been directly approved by the FAA. The extension of SFAR 36 allows uninterrupted major repair activity by the current authorization holders that qualify under the amended SFAR; those authorizations will be extended without the holders reapplying for authorization. The extension also allows a new, qualified applicant to obtain an authorization instead of petitioning for exemption from the regulations.

Respondents: Approximately 10 certificate holders.

Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 18 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 181 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 Start Printed Page 36173of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
