Title: Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations.

Form Numbers: FAA Form 8700-1.

Type of Review: Revision of an information collection.

Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on April 9, 2015 (80 FR 19107). FAA aviation safety inspectors review the Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certification Training Program (CTP) submittals to determine that the program complies with the applicable requirements of 14 CFR 61.156. The programs that comply with the minimum requirements receive approval to begin offering or providing the course to applicants for an ATP certificate with a multiengine class rating or an ATP certificate obtained concurrently with an airplane type rating. The inspectors also review an institution of higher education's application (new form) for the authority to certify its graduates meet the minimum requirements of 14 CFR 61.160. The institutions of higher education that receive a letter of authorization for their degree program(s) will be authorized to place a certifying statement on a graduates' transcript indicating he or she is eligible for a restricted privileges ATP certificate. For those institutions of higher education that have received the Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the FAA to certify graduates for a restricted privileges ATP certificate that would like to add degree programs or additional coursework to the authorization, they must submit an application for revision. FAA will review the revised application, and amend the LOA accordingly.

Respondents: Approximately 50 new applicants.

Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 120 hours for ATP CTP course development, 8 hours for application for the authority to certify that graduates meet the minimum requirements of 14 CFR 61.160, 2 hours for revision application for authority to certify graduates for a restricted privileges ATP certificate.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 1,411.75 hours.
