Title: Survey of Airmen Satisfaction with Aeromedical Certification Services.
Form Numbers: N/A.
Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
Background: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), through the Office of Aerospace Medicine (OAM), is responsible for the medical certification of pilots and certain other personnel under 14 CFR 67 to ensure they are medically qualified to operate aircraft and perform their duties safely. In the accomplishment of this responsibility, OAM provides a number of services to pilots, and has established goals for the performance of those services. This is a biennial survey designed to meet the requirement to survey stakeholder satisfaction under Executive Order No. 12862, “Setting Customer Service Standards,” and the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA).
The survey of airman satisfaction with Aeromedical Certification Services assesses airman opinion of key dimensions of service quality. These dimensions, identified by the OMB Statistical Policy Office in the 1993 “Resource Manual for Customer Surveys,” are courtesy, competence, reliability, and communication. The survey also provides airmen with the Start Printed Page 1266opportunity to provide feedback on the services and a medical certificate application tool they use. This information is used to inform improvements in Aeromedical Certification Services. The survey was initially deployed in 2004, and deployed again in 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, and 2016 (OMB Control No. 2120-0707). Across collections, minor revisions have been made to the survey items and response options to reflect changes in operational services and survey technology. In the current collection, format changes have been made to accommodate multiple administration modes (i.e., paper, desktop computer, and mobile device), reduce the burden on the individual respondent, and potentially improve the response rate.
Frequency: Information is collected biennially.
Estimated Average Burden per Response: 10-15 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 10-15 minutes per respondent, 1,226 total burden hours.
