Type of Review: New information collection.
Background: This is a new collection and is required to retain a benefit from the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA). The new collection will be conducted for reporting purposes and will assist in the FAA in administering a new Veteran's Flight Training Services Workforce Development Grant Program. As part of the FAA's FY20 appropriation, Congress directed the FAA to use a portion of the appropriation to help facilitate the future supply of adequate pilots and to award competitive grants with a priority given to accredited flight schools by the Department of Education or hold a restricted airline transport pilot letter of authorization. The collection will be conducted by the FAA in applications for grant awards not more frequently than annually with bi-annual final reports from all grant recipients. It will provide critical data on locations where the grant dollars are being used to plan and respond the aircraft pilot workforce shortage. This information will provide the FAA with an indication of where gaps exist in planning for the workforce shortage and will help the FAA determine which projects have the great ability to help address the forecasted aircraft pilot shortage. At a date that is still to be determined, the FAA will post a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) www.grants.gov upon completing the Paperwork Reduction Act's required 30 Day Federal Register Notice, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review period and OMB's final issuance of a Paperwork Reduction Act Clearance number for the program.
Respondents: The FAA estimates approximately 30 respondents from Accredited flight schools by the Department of Education or hold a restricted airline transport pilot letter of authorization.
Frequency: The collection will be conducted by the FAA in applications for grant awards not more frequently than annually with bi-annual and final reports from all grant recipients.
Estimated Average Burden per Response: 4 Hours.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 360 Hours (4 Hours × 30 respondents × 3 responses per year).
