If airport operators did not voluntarily submit noise exposure maps and noise compatibility programs for FAA review and approval, the airport operator would not be eligible for the set aside of discretionary grant funds. Respondents: Approximately 15 airport operators. Frequency: Information is collected on occasion. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 3,950 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 59,250 hours. Issued in Fort Worth, TX on May 18, 2018. Barbara L. Hall FAA Information Collection Clearance Officer, Performance, Policy, and Records Management Branch, ASP–110.
