Title: Recording of Aircraft Conveyances and Security Documents.

Form Numbers: AC Form 8050-41, Notice of Recordation.

Type of Review: Renewal.

Background: Title 49 U.S.C. 44108 provides for establishing and maintaining a system for the recording of security conveyances affecting title to, or interest in U.S. civil aircraft and qualified engines, propellers, and/or spare part locations, and for recording of releases relating to those conveyances. Federal Aviation Regulation 14 CFR part 49 establishes procedures for implementation of 49 U.S.C. 44108. Part 49 describes what information must be contained in a security conveyance and a release of that conveyance in order for the FAA to record and/or release a lien.

A lienholder submits a lien against aircraft and/or qualified engines, propellers, and/or spare part locations to the Registry for recording. The Registry records the lien and sends an AC Form 8050-41, Notice of Recordation—Aircraft Security Conveyance, to the lienholder. When the lien is ready for release, the lienholder completes Part II—Release at the bottom of the form and returns it to the Registry as official notification that the lien has been satisfied.

Respondents: Any aircraft, propeller, engine or spare parts location lienholder, who has received the Notice of Recordation from the Registry, and is releasing the subject lien.

Frequency: On occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 1 hour.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: During FY 2019 the FAA received 22,370 release notifications for a total time burden of 22,370 hours.
