Additionally, flight training providers are required to maintain records of having conducted security awareness training for their employees to increase awareness of suspicious circumstances and activities of individuals enrolling in, or attending, flight training. Each flight training provider employee must receive security awareness training within 60 days of being hired and on an annual recurring basis. The flight training providers must maintain records of the training completed throughout the course of the individual’s employment, and for one year after the individual is no longer a flight training provider employee. Based on the numbers of respondents to date, TSA estimates a total of 39,900 respondents annually: 35,000 candidates and 4,900 flight training providers. Respondents are required to provide the subject information every time an alien or other designated individual applies for pilot training as described in the regulation and subsequent interpretations, which is estimated to be 50,000 responses per year. TSA estimates an average of 45 minutes to complete each application, for a total approximate application burden of 37,500 hours per year.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0021, Flight Training for Aliens and Other 
Designated Individuals; Security Awareness Training for Flight School 
Employees, 49 CFR part 1552. Pursuant to section 612 of the Vision 
100--Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act (49 U.S.C. 44939), TSA is 
required to conduct security threat assessments for all aliens and 
other designated individuals seeking flight instruction with Federal 
Aviation Administration (FAA)-certified flight training providers. On 
September 20, 2004, TSA promulgated regulations (49 CFR part 1552) to 
transfer the program from the Department of Justice to TSA and to make 
appropriate amendments to determine that candidates do not pose a 
threat to aviation or national security and thus permitted to receive 
flight training. The collection of information required under 49 CFR 
part 1552 includes candidates' biographic information and fingerprints, 
which TSA uses to perform the security threat assessment. Additionally, 
flight training providers are required to maintain records of having 
conducted security awareness training for their employees to increase 
awareness of suspicious circumstances and activities of individuals 
enrolling in, or attending, flight training. Each flight training 
provider employee must receive security awareness training within 60 
days of being hired and on an annual recurring basis. The flight 
training providers must maintain records of the training completed 
throughout the course of the individual's employment, and for one year 
after the individual is no longer a flight training provider employee.
    Based on the numbers of respondents to date, TSA estimates a total 
of 39,900 respondents annually: 35,000 candidates and 4,900 flight 
training providers. Respondents are required to provide the subject 
information every time an alien or other designated individual applies 
for pilot training as described in the regulation and subsequent 
interpretations, which is estimated to be 50,000 responses per year. 
TSA estimates an average of 45 minutes to complete each application, 
for a total approximate application burden of 37,500 hours per year. 
Flight training providers must keep records for each flight training 
candidate for five years from the time they are created. It is 
estimated each of the 4,900 flight training providers will carry an 
annual record keeping burden of 104 hours, for a total of 509,600 
hours. Thus, TSA estimates the combined hour burden associated with 
this collection to be 547,100 hours annually.
