Title: Certification of Airports, 14 CFR part 139. Form Numbers: FAA Form 5280–1. Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection. Background: The statutory authority to issue airport operating certificates to airports serving certain air carriers and to establish minimum safety standards for the operation of those airports is currently found in Title 49, United States Code (U.S.C.) § 44706, Airport operation certificates. The FAA uses this authority to issue requirements for the certification and operation of certain airports that service commercial air carriers. These requirements are contained in Title 14, Code of Federal Regulation part 139 (14 CFR part 139), Certification and Operations: Land Airports Serving Certain Air Carriers, as amended. Information collection requirements are used by the FAA to determine an airport operator’s compliance with part 139 safety and operational requirements, and to assist airport personnel to perform duties required under the regulation. Operators of certificated airports are required to complete FAA Form 5280– 1 and develop, and comply with, a written document, an Airport Certification Manual (ACM), that details how an airport will comply with the requirements of part 139. The ACM shows the means and procedures whereby the airport will be operated in compliance with part 139, plus other instructions and procedures to help personnel concerned with operation of the airport to perform their duties and responsibilities. ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00171 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 When an airport satisfactorily complies with such requirements, the FAA issues to that facility an airport operating certificate (AOC) that permits an airport to serve air carriers. The FAA periodically inspects these airports to ensure continued compliance with part 139 safety requirements, including the maintenance of specified records. Both the application for an AOC and annual compliance inspections require operators of certificated airports to collect and report certain operational information. The AOC remains in effect as long as the need exists and the operator complies with the terms of the AOC and the ACM. The likely respondents to new information requests are those civilian U.S. airport certificate holders who operate airports that serve scheduled and unscheduled operations of air carrier aircraft with more than 30 passenger seats (approximately 530 airports). These airport operators already hold an AOC and comply with all current information collection requirements. Operators of certificated airports are permitted to choose the methodology to report information and can design their own recordkeeping system. As airports vary in size, operations and complexities, the FAA has determined this method of information collection allows airport operators greater flexibility and convenience to comply with reporting and recordkeeping requirements. 100% of the information may be submitted electronically. The FAA has an automated system, the Certification and Compliance Management Information System (CCMIS), which allows FAA airport safety and certification inspectors to enter into a national database airport inspection information. This information is monitored to detect trends and developing safety issues, to allocate inspection resources, and generally, to be more responsive to the needs of regulated airports. Respondents: Approximately 530 airports. Frequency: Information collected on occasion. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 22 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 95,191 hours.

of Airports

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites 
public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management

part 139 establishes certification requirements for airports serving 
scheduled air carrier operations in aircraft with 10-30 seats.
    The collection involves FAA Form 5280-1, Application for Airport 
Operating Certificate. Every airport that wants to become a 
certificated Part 139 airport must complete this form, as well as 
provide a draft Airport Certification Manual (ACM). In addition, 
currently certificated Part 139 airports must maintain their ACM, as 
well as keep and maintain records related to training, self-inspection, 
and other requirements of Part 139.
    These records allow the FAA to verify compliance with Part 139 
safety and operational requirements to ensure that the airports meet 
the minimum safety requirements of Part 139, which in turn enhances the 
safety of the flying public.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by October 1, 2018.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Barbara

    Title: Certification of Airports, 14 CFR part 139.
    Form Numbers: FAA Form 5280-1.
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: The statutory authority to issue airport operating 
certificates to airports serving certain air carriers and to establish 
minimum safety standards for the operation of those airports is 
currently found in Title 49, United States Code (U.S.C.) Sec.  44706, 
Airport operation certificates. The FAA uses this authority to issue 
requirements for the certification and operation of certain airports 
that service commercial air carriers. These requirements are contained

Carriers, as amended. Information collection requirements are used by 
the FAA to determine an airport operator's compliance with part 139 
safety and operational requirements, and to assist airport personnel to 
perform duties required under the regulation.
    Operators of certificated airports are required to complete FAA 
Form 5280-1 and develop, and comply with, a written document, an 
Airport Certification Manual (ACM), that details how an airport will 
comply with the requirements of part 139. The ACM shows the means and 
procedures whereby the airport will be operated in compliance with part 
139, plus other instructions and procedures to help personnel concerned 
with operation of the airport to perform their duties and 
responsibilities.
    When an airport satisfactorily complies with such requirements, the 
FAA issues to that facility an airport operating certificate (AOC) that 
permits an airport to serve air carriers. The FAA periodically inspects 
these airports to ensure continued compliance with part 139 safety 
requirements, including the maintenance of specified records. Both the 
application for an AOC and annual compliance inspections require 
operators of certificated airports to collect and report certain
