Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 220 / Thursday, November 14, 2019 / Notices soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on September 4, 2019 (84 FR 46604). Comments were received from the 60 day comment period, and the estimated time burden has been adjusted to reflect those comments. The number of respondents was also updated to reflect the most current number. Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) is a voluntary safety program designed to improved aviation safety through the proactive use of flight-recorded data. Operators will use this data to identify and correct deficiencies in all areas of flight operations. Properly used, FOQA data can reduce or eliminate safety risks, as well as minimize deviations from regulations. Through access to deidentified aggregate FOQA data, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA can identify and analyze national trends and target resources to reduce operational risks in the National Airspace System (NAS), air traffic control (ATC), flight operations and airport operations. The FAA and the air transportation industry have sought additional means for addressing safety problems and identifying potential safety hazards. Based on the experiences of foreign air carriers, the results of several FAAsponsored studies, and input received from government/industry safety forums, the FAA concluded that wide implementation of FOQA programs could have significant potential to reduce air carrier accident rates below current levels. The value of FOQA programs is the early identification of adverse safety trends, which, if uncorrected, could lead to accidents. A key element in FOQA is the application of corrective action and follow-up to ensure that unsafe conditions are effectively remediated. Respondents: 64 Air Carriers (55 with existing programs and 9 carriers with new programs). Frequency: Once for a certificate holders seeking approval of a program, monthly (or less depending on agreement with FAA office) for certificate holders with an approved program. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 100 Hours for certificate holders seeking approval of a new program, 30.0 hour per year for certificate holders with an approved program. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 100 hours per new respondent, 30 hours annually per existing respondents.
