Title: Fatigue Tolerance Evaluation of Metallic Structures.

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

Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.

Background: To obtain type certification of a rotorcraft, 14 CFR part 29 requires an applicant to show that the rotorcraft complies with specific certification requirements. To show compliance, the applicant must submit substantiating data. FAA engineers or designated engineer representatives from industry will review the required data submittals to determine if the rotorcraft complies with the applicable minimum safety requirements for fatigue critical rotorcraft metallic structures and that the rotorcraft has no unsafe features in the metallic structures. The FAA is requiring an applicant to submit the compliance methodology for the FAA to assure that the rotorcraft has no unsafe fatigue characteristics.

Respondents: 17 total applicants for type certification of rotorcraft over a 27 year period.

Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 320 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 269 hours.
