Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on June 27, 2019 (84 FR 30787). No comments were received. In response to the increasing number of accidents and incidents involving the Mitsubishi MU-2B series airplane, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) began a safety evaluation of the MU-2B in July of 2005. As a result of this safety evaluation, on February 6, 2008 the FAA issued Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 108—Mitsubishi MU-2B Series Special Training, Experience, and Operating Requirements. This Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) established a standardized pilot training program. The collection of information is necessary to document participation in, completion of, and compliance with the pilot training program for the MU-2B under subpart N of 14 CFR part 91, issued on September 7, 2016, which superseded SFAR No. 108.

Respondents: Approximately 20 part 91 training providers, and approximately 400 active MU-2 pilots.

Frequency: Every year (pilots); every two years (training providers).

Estimated Average Burden per Response: Pilots: Logbook endorsement and training course final phase check = 10 minutes. Training providers: Submission of training program = 4 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: Pilots: 67 hours. Training providers: 40 hours. Total: 107 hours.
