Title: Air Taxi and Commercial Operator Airport Activity Survey. Form Numbers: FAA Form 1800–31. Type of Review: Clearance of a renewal of an information collection. Background: The data collected through this survey is the only source of data for charter and nonscheduled passenger data by Part 135 operator (air taxis). The data received on the form (either paper or signed electronic copy) is then incorporated into the Air Carrier Activity Information System which is used to determine whether an airport is eligible for Airport Improvement Program funds and for calculating primary airport sponsor apportionment as specified by title 49 United Stated Code (U.S.C.), section 47114. The data collected on the form includes passenger enplanements by carrier and by airport. Passengers traveling on air taxis would be overlooked entirely if this passenger survey were not conducted. As a result, many airports would not receive their fair share of funds since there is currently no other source for this type of charter activity. On average, approximately 100 operators respond each year, reporting a total 1.1 million passengers. This data is important to those airports that struggle to meet the 2,500 and 10,000 passenger levels and could not do so without the reporting of the charter passengers. The 60-day FRN was published on August 16, 2019 under FRN document citation number 2019–0640. Respondents: The voluntary survey is sent through the U.S. Postal Service to approximately 190 small on-demand operators (certificated under Federal Aviation Regulation Part 135) that have reported activity in the last three years. The form is also available on the FAA website. Beginning with the calendar year 2019 data, operators will be able to FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00144 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64181 access the form, electronically sign and submit it to the FAA.

FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2016–0086. Specifically, CSX seeks relief with respect to the application of 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1)(iii), Leakage test, and § 229.29(b), Air brake system calibration, maintenance, and testing, for the calibration of locomotive air flow method (AFM) indicators. CSX requests to become a full test member of the existing FRA–2016–0086 test waiver (joining BNSF Railway), under the same conditions as BNSF, for testing 1,264 of CSX’s New York Air Brake (NYAB) CCB II equipped locomotives (see FRA– 2016–0086–0006) to investigate whether the interval for calibration may be safely extended to 184 days. CSX also requests to form a test team operating under the current FRA–2016–0086 test committee to test all 440 CSX Wabtec Fastbrakeequipped locomotives. CSX has been an active member of the FRA–2016–0086 test committee since its inception and is familiar with the work performed to date by this committee. On August 29, 2019, the test committee extended a consensus recommendation for CSX to join the waiver as a testing member to E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1
