Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved recordkeeping requirement. Respondents: Certificated air carriers and charter operators. Number of Respondents: 120 certificated air carriers, 300 charter operators. Estimated Time per Response: 3 hours per certificated air carrier, 1 hour per charter operator. Total Annual Burden: 660 hours. Needs and Uses: Part 249 requires the retention of records such as: general and subsidiary ledgers, journals and journal vouchers, voucher distribution registers, accounts receivable and payable journals and ledgers, subsidy records documenting underlying financial and statistical reports to DOT, funds reports, consumer records, sales reports, auditors’ and flight coupons, air waybills, etc. Depending on the nature of the document, the carrier may be required to retain the document for a period of 30 days to 3 years. Public charter operators and overseas military personnel charter operators must retain documents which evidence or reflect deposits made by each charter participant and commissions received by, paid to, or deducted by travel agents, and all statements, invoices, bills and receipts from suppliers or furnishers of goods and services in connection with the tour or charter. These records are retained for 6 months after completion of the charter program. Not only is it imperative that carriers and charter operators retain source documentation, but it is critical that we ensure that DOT has access to these hsrobinson on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:00 Feb 02, 2006 Jkt 208001 records. Given DOT’s established information needs for such reports, the underlying support documentation must be retained for a reasonable period of time. Absent the retention requirements, the support for such reports may or may not exist for audit/validation purposes and the relevance and usefulness of the carrier submissions would be impaired, since the data could not be verified to the source on a test basis. for a final rule. Until such time as we issue a final rule, the existing system for the collection of this data will remain in place to ensure compliance with statutory obligations. Therefore, we are seeking an extension of the rule in its present format. When the rulemaking becomes final the Department will seek Office of Management and Budget approval of the new reporting requirements. Issued in Washington, DC, on January 27, 2006. Donald W. Bright, Assistant Director, Airline Information, Bureau of Transportation Statistics. [FR Doc. 06–1016 Filed 2–2–06; 8:45 am] Written comments should be submitted by April 4, 2006.

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public 
Law 104-13, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics invites the general 
public, industry and other governmental parties to comment on the 
continuing need for and usefulness of BTS collecting a sample of

service with at least one aircraft having a seating capacity of over 60 
seats report these data. Comments are requested concerning whether: (a) 
The collection is still needed by the Department of Transportation; (b) 
BTS accurately estimated the reporting burden; (c) there are other ways 
to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information 
collected; and (d) there are ways to minimize reporting burden, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    Presently, the Department has a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (70

rule. Until such time as we issue a final rule, the existing system for 
the collection of this data will remain in place to ensure compliance

the rule in its present format. When the rulemaking becomes final the 
Department will seek Office of Management and Budget approval of the 
new reporting requirements.
