Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Reinstated Approval of Information Collection: Flight Simulation Device Initial and Continuing Qualification and Use, 51330 [2017-23891]

Download as PDF 51330 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 212 / Friday, November 3, 2017 / Notices ethrower on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES agreed to terminate its operation over the Line upon consummation of the transaction between GOOS and UP and does not object to the proposed change in operators. GOOS states that the proposed change in operators does not involve any provision or agreement that would limit future interchange with a third-party connecting carrier. GOOS certifies that its projected annual revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier and would not exceed $5 million. Under 49 CFR 1150.42(b), a change in operators requires that notice be given to shippers. GOOS states that there are no active shippers on the Line and that all current freight traffic on the Line originates or terminates on connecting Lines. GOOS therefore submits that the shipper notice requirement is not applicable to this transaction. The earliest this transaction can be consummated is November 19, 2017, the effective date of the exemption. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions for stay must be filed no later than November 9, 2017 (at least seven days before the exemption becomes effective). An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36154, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, one copy of each pleading must be served on Robert A. Wimbish, Fletcher & Sippel LLC, 29 North Wacker Drive, Suite 920, Chicago, IL 60606. According to GOOS, this action is excluded from environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic preservation reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b)(l). Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at WWW.STB.GOV. Decided: October 27, 2017. By the Board, Scott M. Zimmerman, Acting Director, Office of Proceedings. Kenyatta Clay, Clearance Clerk.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. This request for clearance reflects requirements necessary to ensure safety-of-flight by ensuring that complete and adequate training, testing, checking, and experience is obtained and maintained by those who operate under certain parts of FAA’s regulations and use flight simulation in lieu of aircraft for these functions. DATES: Written comments should be submitted by January 2, 2018. ADDRESSES: Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Barbara Hall, Federal Aviation Administration, ASP– 110, 10101 Hillwood Parkway, Fort Worth, TX 76177. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Barbara Hall by email at: Barbara.L.Hall@faa.gov; phone: 940– 594–5913. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for FAA’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized 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. OMB Control Number: 2120–0680. Title: Flight Simulation Device Initial and Continuing Qualification and Use. Form Numbers: (Pending) Forms T001A, T002, T004, T011, T011–FD2, T012, T023, T024, T025. Type of Review: This is a reinstatement of an information collection. Background: This information collection requires sponsors of flight SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00121 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 simulation training devices (FSTD) to systematically plan for and implement the requirements of part 60 and the associated Qualification Performance Standard (QPS). Sponsors have been sub-grouped into small, medium, and large based on the number of training centers. A sponsor will be guided through the administrative requirements by the local principal operations inspector or training center program manager and by representatives of the National Simulator Program staff regarding any FSTD for which the sponsor applicant seeks qualification. The FAA has determined this information collection is necessary to amend the Qualification Performance Standards for FSTDs for the primary purpose of improving existing technical standards and introducing new technical standards for full stall and stick pusher maneuvers, upset recognition and recovery maneuvers, maneuvers conducted in airborne icing conditions, takeoff and landing maneuvers in gusting crosswinds, and bounced landing recovery maneuvers. These new and improved technical standards are intended to fully define FSTD fidelity requirements for conducting new flight training tasks introduced through changes to the air carrier training requirements. This information collection also addresses updated FSTD technical standards to better align with the current international FSTD evaluation guidance and introduces a new FSTD level that expands the number of qualified flight training tasks in a fixed base flight training device. This information collection will help ensure that the training and testing environment is accurate and realistic, in accordance with regulations. Respondents: The estimate is based on a current sponsor count of 68 that changes on a continuous basis. Frequency: Annual. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 44 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 93,385 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on October 26, 2017. Barbara L.
