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

Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.

Background: 14 CFR part 91 requires operators of U.S. registered civil aircraft flying outside the United States to carry aircraft noise certification information on board. This rule is needed to ensure consistent compliance with the ICAO, Annex 16, Volume 1, Amendment 8 that requires certain noise information be carried on board the aircraft. The rule requires that this information be easily accessible to the flight crew and presentable upon request to the appropriate foreign officials.

Respondents: Approximately 73 operators of aircraft currently registered to U.S. mainline air carriers.

Frequency: One-time initial response per aircraft subject to the rule, for the information to be recorded and maintained.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 25 minutes.
