Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 31, 2020 (85 FR 17939). The reporting and recordkeeping requirements under this collection are necessary for the FAA to issue, reissue, and amend part 125 applicants' operating certificates and operation specifications. A letter of application and related documents which set forth an applicant's ability to conduct operations in compliance with the provisions of 14 CFR part 125 are submitted to the appropriate Flight Standards District Office (FSDO). Inspectors in FAA FSDOs review the submitted information to determine certificate eligibility. If the letter of application, related documents, and inspection show that the applicant satisfactorily meets acceptable safety standards, an operating certificate and operations specifications will be issued. If the information were not collected, the FAA could not discharge its responsibility to promote the safety of large airplane operators during such operations.

Respondents: 85 certificated part 125 operators (75 existing operators and 10 new applicants per year).

Frequency: On occasion.

Estimated Average Burden per Response: 13 minutes.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 50,427 total hours; 593 hours per respondent.
