DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration FAA Advisory Circular 142–1, Standardized Curricula Delivered by Part 142 Training Centers Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Notice of availability of agency guidance. AGENCY: This notice announces the availability of FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 142–1, Standardized Curricula Delivered by Part 142 Training Centers. The AC introduces the standardized curriculum concept for training provided by part 142 training centers and describes the associated benefits of this voluntary approach. This AC provides guidance to part 142 training centers on how to obtain approval to deliver a standardized curriculum to part 135 operators, including guidance on how a part 142 training center may qualify its personnel as instructors and check pilots under part 135. This AC also provides guidance on how a part 135 operator may obtain approval to use a standardized curriculum as part of its training program. Voluntary use of standardized curricula for part 135 training promotes safety and increases administrative efficiency for industry. Based on these benefits, the FAA believes that most part 135 training provided by part 142 training centers will occur through standardized curricula after implementation. DATES: The guidance in AC 142–1 became effective April 27, 2020. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:46 Jun 01, 2020 The standardized curriculum concept provides a means to standardize curricula offered by part 142 training centers to part 135 operators. Under the standardized curriculum concept, the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee will use formalized stakeholder input to develop and recommend standardized curricula for each aircraft fleet to the FAA. The FAA will review the recommendations and, if acceptable, publish the standardized curricula at a national level. The standardized curriculum concept aims to provide an efficient means for approving training curricula offered by part 142 training centers while increasing the consistency of training, testing, and checking delivered to part 135 operators. The standardized curriculum concept supports the overarching goals to enhance training and checking and promote safer operational practices and is consistent with applicable regulations.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:46 Jun 01, 2020 Jkt 250001 FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by complying with § 391.41(b)(11). The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding hearing found in § 391.41(b)(11) states that a person is physically qualified to drive a CMV if that person first perceives a forced whispered voice in the better ear at not less than 5 feet with or without the use of a hearing aid or, if tested by use of an audiometric device, does not have an average hearing loss in the better ear greater than 40 decibels at 500 Hz, 1,000 Hz, and 2,000 Hz with or without a hearing aid when the audiometric device is calibrated to American National Standard (formerly ASA Standard) Z24.5—1951. This standard was adopted in 1970 and was revised in 1971 to allow drivers to be qualified under this standard while wearing a hearing aid, 35 FR 6458, 6463 (April 22, 1970) and 36 FR 12857 (July 3, 1971).

II. Background

    On April 6, 2020, FMCSA published a notice announcing its decision 
to renew exemptions for 27 individuals from the hearing standard in 49 
CFR 391.41(b)(11) to operate a CMV in interstate commerce and requested 
comments from the public
    (85 FR 19218). The public comment period ended on May 6, 2020, and 
no comments were received.
    FMCSA has evaluated the eligibility of these applicants and 
determined that renewing these exemptions would achieve a level of 
safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved 
by complying with Sec.  391.41(b)(11).
    The physical qualification standard for drivers regarding hearing 
found in Sec.  391.41(b)(11) states that a person is physically 
qualified to drive a CMV if that person first perceives a forced 
whispered voice in the better ear at not less than 5 feet with or 
without the use of a hearing aid or, if tested by use of an audiometric 
device, does not have an average hearing loss in the better ear greater 
than 40 decibels at 500 Hz, 1,000 Hz, and 2,000 Hz with or without a 
hearing aid when the audiometric device is calibrated to American 
National Standard (formerly ASA Standard) Z24.5--1951.
    This standard was adopted in 1970 and was revised in 1971 to allow 
drivers to be qualified under this standard while wearing a hearing 
aid, 35 FR 6458, 6463 (April 22, 1970) and 36 FR 12857 (July 3, 1971).

III. Discussion of Comments

    FMCSA received no comments in this proceeding.

IV. Conclusion

    Based upon its evaluation of the 27 renewal exemption applications, 
FMCSA announces its decision to exempt the following drivers from the 
hearing requirement in Sec.  391.41 (b)(11).

groups of drivers received renewed exemptions in the month of April and
