Assuming 15 minutes per transaction, we estimate the total annual burden per respondent to be approximately 75 hours and 45 minutes (303 × .25 = 75.75). However, discussions with individuals knowledgeable about the industry indicated that making these disclosures to charterers is already a standard part of customary and usual business practices for air charter brokers as well as air taxi operators and commuter air carriers. Thus, these entities should expect little or no incremental burden due to these disclosure requirements, as supported by comments received in response to the Department’s NPRM. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The estimated total annual burden would be 212,241 hours and 15 minutes. Regarding air charter brokers, based on the estimate of 700 respondents, with approximately 70 hours annually per respondent, the estimated total annual burden of the flight-specific disclosure requirements would be 49,000 hours. Regarding air taxi operators and commuter air carriers, based on the estimate of 2,155 respondents, with approximately 75.75 hours annually per respondent, the estimated total annual burden would be 163,241 hours and 15 minutes (2,155 × 75.75). As stated previously, the total annual incremental burden to air taxi operators and commuter air carriers is expected to be minimal to none, since making these disclosures is already standard practice for this segment of the industry. 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 the Department 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. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C.
