Petition for Waiver of Compliance, 36986-36987 [2016-13487]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 36986 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 110 / Wednesday, June 8, 2016 / Notices $500 rebate to an aircraft owner to defray some of the cost of an ADS–B Out system meeting the program eligibility requirements. The rebates will be available on a first come first served basis. The FAA, with input from industry partners (Aircraft Electronics Association, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, and General Aircraft Manufacturers Association), designed this rebate program targeting specific eligibility requirements for avionics, aircraft types, and aircraft owners. The eligibility requirements are as follows: Eligible Avionics—Technical Standard Order (TSO)-certified Version 2 ADS–B Out system, purchased on or after June 8, 2016. Such equipment must have a TSO marking for TSO–C154c, or TSO–C166b, or both. Eligible ADS–B Out system equipment may have an embedded position source compliant with one of the following TSOs: TSO– C–145c (or subsequent versions), TSO– C146c (or subsequent versions), or may be connected to a separate position source compliant with TSO–C–145c (or subsequent versions) or TSO–C146c (or subsequent versions). Any separate position source must comply with the guidance published in FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 20–165B. ADS–B In/Out systems compliant with TSO–C154c, TSO–C166b, or both, are also eligible. Eligible Aircraft—Only U.S.registered, fixed-wing single-engine piston aircraft first registered before January 1, 2016 are eligible for the program. This eligibility will be determined via the FAA Civil Aircraft Registry. Program eligibility also requires permanent installation of new avionics equipment in a single aircraft in compliance with applicable FAA regulations and guidance material. Aircraft Owner—Program eligibility is limited to one rebate per aircraft owner. An aircraft owner means either a single individual owner or any owning entity (any legal ownership entity including but not limited to an LLC, corporation, partnership or joint venture) identified as the owner of the eligible aircraft in the FAA Civil Aviation Registry. Exclusions—All aircraft for which FAA has already paid or previously committed to upgrade to meet the ADS– B Out mandate. Software upgrades to existing equipment are not eligible. Aircraft that already have a Version 2 ADS–B Out system prior to the launch of the data collection system are not eligible. New aircraft produced after January 1, 2016, are not eligible. For reimbursement under this program, the FAA Civil Aircraft Registry information regarding ownership is controlling and the rebate program will VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Jun 07, 2016 Jkt 238001 be using the publically available database to determine eligibility requirements based on the aircraft information. The aircraft owner is responsible for ensuring that the FAA Civil Aircraft Registry information is accurate before a claim for the rebate is submitted; rebates will only be mailed to the registered owner and address as indicated in the Civil Aircraft Registry. To request a rebate, the applicant must provide via the program Web site a valid email address for official correspondence and notifications and aircraft-specific information such as the aircraft registration number, TSOcertified equipment purchased, and scheduled installation date. Once the information is submitted, the FAA will validate eligibility for the program with the official records regarding aircraft ownership contained in the publically available Civil Aircraft Registry. Additionally, anyone requesting a rebate will need to accept legal notices electronically by acknowledging their agreement and acceptance and providing the name of the person submitting the information on the individual web application. Through the ADS–B Rebate Program, aircraft owners will be permitted to reserve a rebate, validate their installation, and then claim their rebate through the ADS–B Rebate Program Web site. The program steps and timeline requirements are as follows: [1] Decide: The aircraft owner arranges for purchase and schedules installation of TSO-certified avionics for an eligible aircraft. [2] Reserve: Before avionics installation occurs, the aircraft owner must go to the ADS–B Rebate Program Web site to submit information for a rebate reservation. Upon successful submission, the system will generate an email with a Rebate Reservation Code. During the rebate reservation process, the eligible aircraft’s information is validated against the FAA Civil Aircraft Registry, including ownership information. If there are discrepancies, the aircraft owner may continue with the reservation process; but before a valid Incentive Code can be obtained in step [5], the aircraft owner must ensure that the FAA Civil Aircraft Registry data for their eligible aircraft is corrected. [3] Install: TSO-certified ADS–B avionics are installed in the eligible aircraft. [4] Fly & Validate: Only after the prior steps are completed, the eligible aircraft must be flown in the airspace defined in 14 CFR 91.225 for at least 30 minutes, with at least 10 aggregate minutes of maneuvering flight, per the guidance in AC 20–165B http://www.faa.gov/ PO 00000 Frm 00127 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regulations_policies/advisory_circulars/ index.cfm/go/document.information/ documentID/1028666, sections 4.3.2 and 4.3.2.3–4.3.2.6 for Part 23 aircraft. After flight, the ADS–B data is used to generate a Public Compliance Report (PCR) and General Aviation Incentive Requirements Status (GAIRS) Report, which is how the performance of the eligible aircraft’s ADS–B installation is validated. Note that it may be necessary to repeat this step more than once, until the GAIRS Report indicates PASS for all fields and provides an Incentive Code in the Rebate Status section. Once proper installation and operation of the ADS– B is validated the FAA will notify the applicant using the email address provided at the time of rebate request. [5] Claim: Within 60 days of the scheduled installation date, the aircraft owner gathers their Rebate Reservation Code (from step [2]) and their Incentive Code (from step [4]) and submits this information as well as their name and aircraft number via the ADS–B Rebate Program Web site to complete the claim for their rebate. The FAA is seeking comments from the public regarding the information we collect for the program and how we collect it. The information provided in this notice is solely to identify and collect information from the public on the potential burden to an individual that would result from this program. Respondents: Approximately 20,000 rebates. Frequency: Information is collected only during the times the user is submitting their reservation and claiming their rebate after proof of meeting the eligibility requirements. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 6 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: Approximately 2,000 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on June 1, 2016.
