The FAA may approve the request, in whole or in part, no sooner than thirty days after the publication of this notice. The following is a brief overview of the request: The Curtis Municipal Airport (47V) is proposing the release of airport property totaling 0.81 acres, more or less.

Form Numbers: 8420–8. Type of Review: This is a renewal of an existing information collection. Background: The FAA is publishing the final rule Regulatory Relief, Aviation Training devices; Pilot Certification, Training, and Pilot Schools; and Other Provisions (RIN 2120–AK28; Docket No. FAA–2016–6142). In that rule, the FAA is amending § 141.5(d) to allow part 141 pilot schools that hold training course approvals for special curricula courses to renew their certificates based on their students’ successful completion of an end-of-course test for these FAA approved courses. In that rule, the FAA further adjusts the number of pilot schools based on population changes, and to account for the change in burden associated with these new courses. We estimate that of the 31 new applications for pilot school certificates, 25% will have special curricula courses that will need to be accounted for in the passage rate required for issuance of a certificate in § 141.5(d). Of the 291 applications for renewal of pilot school certificates, approximately 25% would include special curricula courses that must now be accounted for in the passage rate for renewal of a certificate under § 141.5(d). We estimate that it would take .1 hours to add this special curricula course information to both initial and renewal applications. 8 new applications at .1 hours each = .8 hours. 73 applications at .1 hours each (adding special curr.) = 7.3 hours. 171.0 hours + 8.1 hours = 181.6 total burden hours. The FAA is also making a burden adjustment to the number of pilot schools, increasing the population from 546 pilot schools to 581 pilot schools. Respondents: 581 Pilot schools. Frequency: As needed for new applications; Every 24 months for renewals of existing pilot schools.

Title: Certification: Pilots and Flight Instructors. Form Numbers: 8710–1, 8710–13. Type of Review: This is a revision of an existing information collection. Background: The FAA is publishing the final rule Regulatory Relief, Aviation Training devices; Pilot Certification, Training, and Pilot Schools; and Other Provisions (RIN 2120–AK28; Docket No. FAA–2016–6142). In that rule, the FAA is reducing the burden for instrument currency requirements under § 61.57 for those pilots that use aviation training devices. Prior to that final rule, § 61.57(c)(3) required persons using an aviation training device to establish instrument experience to complete the required tasks within the preceding 2 calendar months. Persons using an aircraft, full flight simulator, flighttraining device, or a combination, however, were required to establish instrument experience within the preceding 6 calendar months. 14 CFR 61.57(c)(1)–(2). The final rule amends § 61.57(c) to allow pilots to accomplish instrument experience in aviation training devices by performing the same tasks required for flight simulation training devices and aircraft, and at the same 6-month interval allowed for flight simulation training devices and aircraft. The FAA estimates that, of the 102,811 active pilots with an instrument rating, that approximately 50% are maintaining currency. It is likely that only 15% of those pilots (approximately 15,422 pilots) are using an aviation training device exclusively to maintain their instrument currency. For those pilots, this change will reduce the recordkeeping requirements of logging time from 6 times a year to two times a year, when logging instrument currency exclusively in an aviation training device. The FAA estimates this burden reduction to be 6168.8 hours annually. Additionally, the final rule amends § 135.99 by adding paragraph (c) to allow a certificate holder to receive approval of a second in command (SIC) professional development program (SIC PDP) via operations specifications (Ops Specs) to allow the certificate holder’s pilots to log SIC time in operations conducted under part 135 in an airplane or operation that does not otherwise require a SIC.

    Type of Review: This is a renewal of an existing information 
collection.
    Background: The FAA is publishing the final rule Regulatory Relief, 
Aviation Training devices; Pilot Certification, Training, and Pilot 
Schools; and Other Provisions (RIN 2120-AK28; Docket No. FAA-2016-
6142). In that rule, the FAA is amending Sec.  141.5(d) to allow part 
141 pilot schools that hold training course approvals for special 
curricula courses to renew their certificates based on their students' 
successful completion of an end-of-course test for these FAA approved 
courses. In that rule, the FAA further adjusts the number of pilot 
schools based on population changes, and to account for the change in 
burden associated with these new courses.
    We estimate that of the 31 new applications for pilot school 
certificates, 25% will have special curricula courses that will need to 
be accounted for in the passage rate required for issuance of a 
certificate in Sec.  141.5(d). Of the 291 applications for renewal of 
pilot school certificates, approximately 25% would include special 
curricula courses that must now be accounted for in the passage rate 
for renewal of a certificate under Sec.  141.5(d). We estimate that it 
would take .1 hours to add this special curricula course information to 
both initial and renewal applications.
8 new applications at .1 hours each = .8 hours.
73 applications at .1 hours each (adding special curr.) = 7.3 hours.
171.0 hours + 8.1 hours = 181.6 total burden hours.
    The FAA is also making a burden adjustment to the number of pilot 
schools, increasing the population from 546 pilot schools to 581 pilot 
schools.
    Respondents: 581 Pilot schools.
    Frequency: As needed for new applications; Every 24 months for 
renewals of existing pilot schools.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 0.5 hours, + 0.1 hours for 
special curriculum course information (when applicable).
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 31,639.6 total burden hours. 2,589.6 
total annual reporting burden hours, and 29,050 total annual 
recordkeeping burden hours.
