Additionally, fractional ownerships operating in accordance with subpart K of part 91 are required to complete a pilot safety background check before allowing an individual to begin service as a pilot (reference § 91.1051). Furthermore, air tour operators operating in accordance with § 91.147 are required to obtain an individual’s previous drug and/or alcohol testing records before allowing an individual to begin service as a pilot. All requestors are heretofore referred to as ‘‘air carriers.’’ The FAA is also deploying a web-based online application called the Pilot Records Database (PRD) in December 2016 that is expected to benefit hiring air carriers, operators, and pilots required to comply with PRIA. This application automates the current PRIA process and provides an air carrier with immediate access to a consenting pilot’s FAA records. Respondents: Approximately 14,974. Frequency: On occasion.

Type of Review: Revision of an information collection. Background: The FAA has implemented several initiatives to address congestion and delay issues within the National Airspace System. The FAA has issued Orders limiting operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and LaGuardia Airport (LGA). These Orders resulted in part from increasing congestion and delays at the airports requiring the FAA to allocate arrival and departure slots at JFK, EWR, and LGA. On April 6, 2016, the FAA announced a reduction in slot controls at EWR and designation of EWR as a Level 2, schedule-facilitated airport under the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG) based on an updated demand and capacity analysis of the airport. This change is effective from the Winter 2016 scheduling season, which begins on October 30, 2016. The FAA also has designated O’Hare International Airport (ORD), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as Level 2 airports under the IATA WSG. These Level 2 designations resulted in part from increasing congestion and delays at the airports requiring FAA to implement a voluntary process to manage operational growth at ORD and SFO. The Level 2 designation was made at LAX due to a long-term construction project expected to reduce runway capacity; therefore, the designation is not expected to continue beyond the completion of the planned construction at LAX. The information is reported to the FAA by carriers holding a slot at JFK or LGA; by carriers operating at EWR, LAX, ORD, or SFO; and by operators conducting unscheduled operations at LGA. At JFK, carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred slots; (2) requests for seasonal allocation of historic and additional available slots; and (3) usage of slots on a seasonal basis. At LGA, carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred slots; (2) slots required to be returned or slots voluntarily returned; (3) requests to be included in a lottery for available slots; and (4) usage of slots on a bimonthly basis. At LGA, unscheduled operators must request and obtain a reservation from the FAA prior to conducting an operation. At EWR, LAX, ORD and SFO, carriers are asked to notify the FAA of their intended operating schedules during peak hours VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:07 Oct 12, 2016 Jkt 241001 on a semiannual basis. The FAA estimates that all information from carriers is submitted electronically from information stored in carrier scheduling databases, and that nearly all requests for unscheduled operation reservations are submitted electronically through either an internet or touch-tone system interface. Respondents: 200 carriers at various airports; unknown number of unscheduled operators at LaGuardia Airport. Frequency: Information is collected as needed; some reporting on bimonthly or semiannual basis. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 2 minutes per unscheduled operation reservation; 6 minutes per notice of slot transfer; 2 hour per schedule submission or slot request; and 2 hours per slot usage report. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 5,049.5 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on October 6, 2016. Ronda L.

    Title: Air Traffic Slots Management.

[[Page 70737]]

    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
collection.
    Type of Review: Revision of an information collection.
    Background: The FAA has implemented several initiatives to address 
congestion and delay issues within the National Airspace System. The 
FAA has issued Orders limiting operations at John F. Kennedy 
International Airport (JFK), Newark Liberty International Airport 
(EWR), and LaGuardia Airport (LGA). These Orders resulted in part from 
increasing congestion and delays at the airports requiring the FAA to 
allocate arrival and departure slots at JFK, EWR, and LGA. On April 6, 
2016, the FAA announced a reduction in slot controls at EWR and 
designation of EWR as a Level 2, schedule-facilitated airport under the 
International Air Transport Association (IATA) Worldwide Slot 
Guidelines (WSG) based on an updated demand and capacity analysis of 
the airport. This change is effective from the Winter 2016 scheduling 
season, which begins on October 30, 2016. The FAA also has designated 
O'Hare International Airport (ORD), San Francisco International Airport 
(SFO), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as Level 2 airports 
under the IATA WSG. These Level 2 designations resulted in part from 
increasing congestion and delays at the airports requiring FAA to 
implement a voluntary process to manage operational growth at ORD and 
SFO. The Level 2 designation was made at LAX due to a long-term 
construction project expected to reduce runway capacity; therefore, the 
designation is not expected to continue beyond the completion of the 
planned construction at LAX.
    The information is reported to the FAA by carriers holding a slot 
at JFK or LGA; by carriers operating at EWR, LAX, ORD, or SFO; and by 
operators conducting unscheduled operations at LGA. At JFK, carriers 
must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred 
slots; (2) requests for seasonal allocation of historic and additional 
available slots; and (3) usage of slots on a seasonal basis. At LGA, 
carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of 
transferred slots; (2) slots required to be returned or slots 
voluntarily returned; (3) requests to be included in a lottery for 
available slots; and (4) usage of slots on a bi-monthly basis. At LGA, 
unscheduled operators must request and obtain a reservation from the 
FAA prior to conducting an operation. At EWR, LAX, ORD and SFO, 
carriers are asked to notify the FAA of their intended operating 
schedules during peak hours on a semiannual basis. The FAA estimates 
that all information from carriers is submitted electronically from 
information stored in carrier scheduling databases, and that nearly all 
requests for unscheduled operation reservations are submitted 
electronically through either an internet or touch-tone system 
interface.
    Respondents: 200 carriers at various airports; unknown number of 
unscheduled operators at LaGuardia Airport.
    Frequency: Information is collected as needed; some reporting on 
bimonthly or semiannual basis.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 2 minutes per unscheduled 
operation reservation; 6 minutes per notice of slot transfer; 2 hour 
per schedule submission or slot request; and 2 hours per slot usage 
report.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 5,049.5 hours.
