Title: General Operating and Flight Rules—FAR 91.

Form Numbers: None.

Type of Review: Renewal.

Background: The reporting and recordkeeping requirements of Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) part 91, General Operating and Flight Rules, are authorized by part A of subtitle VII of the revised title 49 of the United States Code. FAR part 91 prescribes rules governing the operation of aircraft (other than moored balloons, kites, rockets, unmanned free balloons and small unmanned aircraft) within the United States. The reporting and recordkeeping requirements prescribed by various sections of FAR part 91 are necessary for FAA to assure compliance with these provisions. The information collected becomes a part of FAA's official records and is used only by the FAA for certification, compliance and enforcement, and when accidents, incidents, reports of noncompliance, safety programs, or other circumstances require reference to records. Without this information, the FAA would be unable to control and maintain the consistently high level of civil aviation safety we enjoy.

Respondents: Approximately 21,200 airmen, state or local governments, and businesses.

Frequency: On occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 0.5 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: Reporting: 10,729; Recordkeeping: 224,454; Total: 235,183 hours.
