ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice requests comments on proposed airworthiness standards for acceptance of the BA609 Tiltrotor under 14 CFR 21.17(b), designation of applicable regulations for special classes of aircraft for which airworthiness standards have not been issued. DATES: Send your comments on or before January 25, 2008. ADDRESSES: Send all comments to the FAA, Rotorcraft Directorate, Aircraft Certification Service, Rotorcraft Standards, Fort Worth, Texas 76193– 0110. You may also send comments electronically to 9_ASW_ROTOR_SAFE@faa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited We invite interested parties to submit comments on the proposed airworthiness standards to the address specified above. The FAA will consider all communications received on or before the closing date. These are preliminary proposed airworthiness standards as certification evaluation is ongoing. As such, we also plan to issue a subsequent Notice, addressing the final proposed standards and any comments received in response to this advance Notice prior to issuing the final acceptance. Commenting on this advance Notice does not preclude commenting on the subsequent Notice. Background The ‘‘special class’’ category for aircraft was created specifically for nonconventional aircraft for which airworthiness standards have not been issued and provides a means for applicants to propose airworthiness standards for their particular special class aircraft. The FAA procedure establishing appropriate airworthiness standards includes reviewing and PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 possibly revising the application proposal, publication of the submittal in the Federal Register for public review and comment, and addressing the comments. After all necessary revisions, the standards are published as approved FAA airworthiness standards. Accordingly, the applicant for the BA609 Tiltrotor has submitted a request to the FAA to include the applicable requirements of those airworthiness requirements contained in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations, parts 23, 25, and 29 found by the Administrator to be appropriate for the BA609 Tiltrotor or such airworthiness criteria as the Administrator may find appropriate for this special class aircraft that provides an acceptable level of safety equivalent to the level of safety provided in the existing airworthiness standards. We have considered the applicant’s proposal and have determined that those 14 CFR parts 23, 25, and 29 requirements and certain additional airworthiness standards should apply. How To Obtain Copies You may obtain a copy of the proposed airworthiness standards from the Internet at: http://www.faa.gov/ aircraft/draft_docs/. Issued in Fort Worth, Texas, on September 12, 2007.

Office hours are from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Noise Barriers Inventory Request. Background: The Federal-aid highway program has always been based on a strong State-Federal partnership. At the core of that partnership is a philosophy of trust and flexibility, and a belief that the States are in the best position to make investment decisions that are based on the needs and priorities of their citizens. The FHWA noise regulations give each State highway agency flexibility in determining the reasonableness and feasibility of noise abatement and, thus, in balancing the benefits of noise abatement against the overall adverse social, economic, and environmental effects and costs of the noise abatement measures. The State highway agencies base their determination on the interest of the overall public good, keeping in mind all the elements of the highway program. The flexibility in noise abatement decision-making is reflected by data indicating that not all States have built noise barriers. Through the end of 2004, 45 State Departments of Transportation (SDOT) and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico have constructed over 2,205 linear miles of barriers at a cost of over $2.6 billion ($3.4 billion in 2004 PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54969 dollars). Five States and the District of Columbia have not constructed noise barriers. Ten State highway agencies account for approximately 64 percent of total barrier length and 72 percent of total barrier cost. The previously distributed listing can be found at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/ noise/barrier/summary.htm. This listing continues to be extremely useful in the management of the highway traffic noise program, in our technical assistance efforts for State highway agencies, and in responding to inquiries from congressional sources, Federal, State, and local agencies, and the general public. An updated listing of noise barriers will be distributed nationally for use in the highway traffic noise program. This collection request is for all noise barriers constructed by December 31, 2007. This would include all funding sources and material types. Although the collection concentrates on the 2005, 2006, and 2007 calendar years, a State highway agency may, after review of the ‘‘Summary of Noise Barriers Constructed by December 31, 2004’’ document, delete, modify or add information to any calendar year. Respondents: Each of the 50 SDOTs, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Frequency: Every 3 years. Estimated Average Burden per Response: It is estimated that on average it would take 8 hours to respond to this request. The actual response time will be dependent on the number of noise barriers constructed, the availability of this information, and the collection method. For the SDOT that did not construct noise barriers within the time period, there is no burden. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: It is estimated that the estimated total annual burden is 139 hours annually. Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for the FHWA’s performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways that the burden could be minimized, including the use of electronic technology, without reducing the quality of the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48. E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
