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 a previously approved information collection. The final rule titles “Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Equipage Mandate to Support Air Traffic Control Service”, requires performance requirements for certain avionics equipment on aircraft operating in specified classes of airspace within the United States national Airspace System. The rule facilitates the use of ADS-B for aircraft surveillance by FAA air traffic controllers to accommodate the expected increase in demand for air transportation.


Written comments should be submitted by February 13, 2017.


Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Ronda Thompson, Room 441, Federal Aviation Administration, ASP-110, 950 L'Enfant Plaza SW., Washington, DC 20024.
