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 the Department’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: 2120–0768. Title: Renewal of Existing Information Collection 2120–0768. Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this collection. Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: Part 107 at § 107.41 states that ‘‘no person may operate a small unmanned aircraft in Class B, PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Class C, or Class D airspace or within the lateral boundaries of the surface area of Class E airspace designated for an airport unless that person has prior authorization from Air Traffic Control (ATC).’’ Such authorization may be obtained in the form of either an airspace authorization or a waiver of 14 CFR 107.41 (‘‘airspace waiver’’) issued by the FAA. There is great interest from the public in conducting flight operations of small UAS under part 107. In order to process these authorization and airspace waiver requests, the FAA requires the operator’s name, the operator’s contact information, and information related to the date, place, and time of the requested small UAS operation. This information is necessary for the FAA to meet its statutory mandate of maintaining a safe and efficient national airspace. See, 49 U.S.C. 40103 and 44701; Public Law 112–95, Section 333. Additionally, if the operator is seeking a waiver from the regulations listed in 14 CFR 107.205 (‘‘operational waiver’’), further information is required related to the proposed waiver and any necessary mitigations. The FAA will use the requested information to determine if the proposed UAS operation can be conducted safely. The FAA proposes to use LAANC, or the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability, and a web portal to process authorization requests from the public to conduct part 107 flight operations. The FAA also proposes to use the web portal to all members of the public to request authority to conduct flight operations that require a waiver from the waivable provisions in part 107. Respondents: Small UAS operators seeking to conduct flight operations under 14 CFR part 107. Number of Respondents: Between 2018–2020 FAA estimates it will receive a total of 160,766 requests for airspace authorizations, 24,721 requests for airspace waivers, and 15,169 requests for operational waivers. Frequency: The requested information will need to be provided each time a respondent requests an airspace authorization to operate a small UAS under part 107 in controlled airspace. A respondent may reduce the frequency of providing by seeking and obtaining an airspace waiver to conduct recurring operations. For requests for operational waivers, a respondent will only need to provide the information once at the time of the request for waiver. If granted, operational waivers may be valid for up to four (4) years. Total Annual Burden: The FAA estimates that the annual burden hours E:\FR\FM\12FEN1.SGM 12FEN1 6083 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 29 / Monday, February 12, 2018 / Notices on respondents will be 9,953 hours (3,208 hours for LAANC respondents and 6,745 hours for web portal respondents) for airspace authorizations, 4,120 hours for airspace waivers and 3,286 hours for operational waivers.

    OMB Control Number: 2120-0768.
    Title: Renewal of Existing Information Collection 2120-0768.
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
collection.
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: Part 107 at Sec.  107.41 states that ``no person may 
operate a small unmanned aircraft in Class B, Class C, or Class D 
airspace or within the lateral boundaries of the surface area of Class 
E airspace designated for an airport unless that person has prior 
authorization from Air Traffic Control (ATC).'' Such authorization may 
be obtained in the form of either an airspace authorization or a waiver 
of 14 CFR 107.41 (``airspace waiver'') issued by the FAA. There is 
great interest from the public in conducting flight operations of small 
UAS under part 107.
    In order to process these authorization and airspace waiver 
requests, the FAA requires the operator's name, the operator's contact 
information, and information related to the date, place, and time of 
the requested small UAS operation. This information is necessary for 
the FAA to meet its statutory mandate of maintaining a safe and 
efficient national airspace. See, 49 U.S.C. 40103 and 44701; Public Law 
112-95, Section 333.
    Additionally, if the operator is seeking a waiver from the 
regulations listed in 14 CFR 107.205 (``operational waiver''), further 
information is required related to the proposed waiver and any 
necessary mitigations. The FAA will use the requested information to 
determine if the proposed UAS operation can be conducted safely.
    The FAA proposes to use LAANC, or the Low Altitude Authorization 
and Notification Capability, and a web portal to process authorization 
requests from the public to conduct part 107 flight operations. The FAA 
also proposes to use the web portal to all members of the public to 
request authority to conduct flight operations that require a waiver 
from the waivable provisions in part 107.
    Respondents: Small UAS operators seeking to conduct flight 
operations under 14 CFR part 107.
    Number of Respondents: Between 2018-2020 FAA estimates it will 
receive a total of 160,766 requests for airspace authorizations, 24,721 
requests for airspace waivers, and 15,169 requests for operational 
waivers.
    Frequency: The requested information will need to be provided each 
time a respondent requests an airspace authorization to operate a small 
UAS under part 107 in controlled airspace. A respondent may reduce the 
frequency of providing by seeking and obtaining an airspace waiver to 
conduct recurring operations. For requests for operational waivers, a 
respondent will only need to provide the information once at the time 
of the request for waiver. If granted, operational waivers may be valid 
for up to four (4) years.
    Total Annual Burden: The FAA estimates that the annual burden hours

[[Page 6083]]

on respondents will be 9,953 hours (3,208 hours for LAANC respondents 
and 6,745 hours for web portal respondents) for airspace 
authorizations, 4,120 hours for airspace waivers and 3,286 hours for 
operational waivers.
