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 revise an information collection. The respondents to this information collection are certificate holders or applicants. The information collected determines compliance with applicant eligibility and ensures that certificated AMTSs meet the minimum requirements for procedures and curriculum set forth by the FAA. This revised filing accounts for the recent implementation of operation specifications, corrects the current enrollment figure cited in 2016, and adds sections that were not previously included in the burden assessment. DATES: Written comments should be submitted by June 4, 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.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14309 Type of Review: This is a revision and correction of the information collection approved on September 30, 2016, supporting statement for part 147. Background: The FAA program office for part 147, the General Aviation Branch of Flight Standards, Aircraft Maintenance Division recognizes there were some discrepancies in the 2016 filing. This revised information collection corrects the September 30, 2016, supporting statement approved for part 147. The information collection burden hours and costs will be noticeably higher than posted in the 2016 supporting statement for three primary reasons: • First, due to program changes implemented by FAA Notice N 8900.278, dated November 21, 2014, operations specifications (OpSpecs) were introduced to Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 147 AMTSs. OpSpecs must be issued to institutions with part 147 certificates by July 21, 2015. This correction includes the burden added by OpSpecs not addressed in the 2016 information collection. • Second, the current enrollment figures cited in 2016 were 12,500 students but are now 17,800 students. • Third, some sections of part 147 were not represented as collecting information and to correct the record, the FAA is including them in this revised report. The respondents to this information collection are part 147 certificate holders or applicants. Currently, there are 177 FAA certificated AMTSs. The information collected determines compliance with applicant eligibility and ensures that certificated AMTSs meet the minimum requirements of part 147. The information collected is focused on an AMTS’ initial curriculum, instructor’s qualifications, maintenance of curriculum, facilities, instructional equipment, and change of location, if applicable. Recordkeeping requirements address student attendance, tests, grades, any instruction credited under section 147.31(c), and authenticated transcripts of student’s grades when credit was given based on training from a previous school. An AMTS must also keep a current progress chart for each student showing practical projects completed or to be completed in each subject. Respondents: Part 147 AMTS Certificate applicants and Certificate holders. Frequency: Initial certification, on occasion if changes made by AMTS, and ongoing recordkeeping.
