Title: Aircraft Situational Display to Industry (ASDI) Block Requests.

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

Type of Review: Clearance of a new information collection.

Background: A Policy Notice in the June 3, 2011 Federal Register (76 FR 32258) authorized the FAA to administer a program under which general aviation aircraft owners or operators and on-demand aircraft could have the ability to “block” their aircraft identification information from release into the ASDI data feed. H.R. 2112, the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012”, and a December 16, 2011 Federal Register notice of interim policy (76 FR 78328) further expanded that authority to allow any interested aircraft owner or operator to simply opt out of the ASDI data feed, by submitting a written request to the FAA's ASDI Program Office.

Respondents: Approximately 6,000 owners and operators.

Frequency: One time per requesting owner/operator.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 500 hours.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. Comments should be addressed to the attention of the Desk Officer, Department of Transportation/FAA, and sent via electronic mail to, or faxed to (202) 395-6974, or mailed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Docket Library, Room 10102, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503.

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. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information collection.
