Form Numbers: No forms.
Type of Review: Extension Without Change.
Background: After a study and audit conducted from the late 1970's through the 1980's by the Department of Transportation, Office of the Inspector General, (DOT/OIG), the DOT/OIG recommended the FAA find a way to track alcohol abusers and those dependent on the substance that may pose a threat to the National Airspace (NAS). Through a Congressional act issued in November of 1990, the FAA established a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Impaired (DWI) Investigations Branch. The final rule for this program is found in Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)—part 61 § 61.15.
This regulation calls for pilots certificated by the FAA to send information regarding Driving Under the Influence (or similar charges) of alcohol Start Printed Page 56853or drugs to the FAA within 60 days from either an administrative action against their driver's license and/or criminal conviction. Part of the regulation also calls for the FAA to seek certificate action should an airman be involved in multiple, separate drug/alcohol related motor vehicle incidents within a three-year period. Information sent by the airmen is used to confirm or refute any violations of these regulations, as well as by the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute (CAMI) for medical qualification purposes. Collection by CAMI is covered under a separate OMB control number 2120-0034.
An airman is required to provide a letter via mail or facsimile, with the following information: Name, address, date of birth, pilot certificate number, the type of violation which resulted in the conviction or administrative action, and the state which holds the records or action.
Respondents: Airmen with drug/alcohol related motor vehicle actions.
Frequency: Approximately 1,000 per year.
Estimated Average Burden per Response: 15 Minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 10-20 minutes per respondent, 167 hours total for all respondents.
