FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sheri Pippin by email at: sheri.pippin@ faa.gov; phone: 424–405–7256 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 FAA’s performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA 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. OMB Control Number: 2120–XXXX. Title: Pilot Professional Development. Form Numbers: None. Type of Review: New collection. Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on October 7, 2016 (81FR69908). A second 60-day Federal Register Notice was published on September 29, 2020 (85FR61083). This action amends the requirements primarily applicable to air carriers conducting domestic, flag, and supplemental operations to enhance the professional development of pilots in those operations. This action requires air carriers conducting domestic, flag, and supplemental operations to provide new-hire pilots with an opportunity to observe flight operations and become familiar with procedures before serving as a flightcrew member in operations; to revise the upgrade curriculum; and to provide leadership and command and mentoring training for all pilots in command. This final rule will mitigate incidents of unprofessional pilot behavior and reduce pilot errors that can lead to a catastrophic event. Summary: The final rule requires the development and approval of new and revised training curriculums for the following: • Leadership and command and mentoring ground training for pilots currently serving as PIC (§ 121.429) and recurrent PIC leadership and command and mentoring training (§§ 121.409(b) and 121.427); • Leadership and command training and recurrent leadership and command training for pilots serving as SIC in operations that require three or more pilots (§ 121.432(a)); • Upgrade training curriculum requirements (§§ 121.420 and 121.426); VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:09 Nov 19, 2020 Jkt 253001 • Part 121 appendix H requirements; and • Approval of Qualification Standards Document for certificate holders using an Advanced Qualification Program (AQP) (§ 121.909). The final rule also requires some additional recordkeeping related to maintaining records of pilots completing the following: • Leadership and command and mentoring ground training for pilots currently serving as PIC (§ 121.429); • Leadership and command training and recurrent leadership and command training for pilots serving as SIC in operations that require three or more pilots (§ 121.432(a)); • Recurrent PIC leadership and command and mentoring ground training (§ 121.427); and • Operations familiarization for newhire pilots (§ 121.435). Use: This information will be used to ensure safety-of-flight by making certain that adequate training is obtained and maintained by those who operate under part 121. The FAA will review the respondents’ training programs and training courseware through routine certification, inspection and surveillance of certificate holders using part 121 pilot training and qualification programs to ensure compliance and adherence to regulations and, where necessary, to take enforcement action. Respondents: As of February 2017, there were 79 certificate holders who use part 121 pilot training and qualification programs. They collectively employed 39,122 PICs and 42,227 SICs. Frequency: Information is collected on occasion. Responses will vary based on type of operation. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 206 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 9,614 Hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on November 17, 2020. Sandra L. Ray, Aviation Safety Inspector, FAA Policy Integration Branch, AFS–270.

[FR Doc. 2020–24001 Filed 11–19–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–RY–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2020–0087] Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this provides the public notice that on November 5, 2020, Illinois Central Railroad Company, for itself and on behalf of the U.S. railroad subsidiaries operating under the Canadian National Railway Company (CN), petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 232, Brake System Safety Standards for Freight and Other Non-Passenger Trains and Equipment; End-of-Train Devices. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2020–0087. Specifically, CN proposes to use software technology to implement a virtual three-dimensional simulation as an alternative to satisfy the ‘‘hands-on’’ portion of periodic refresher training required by 49 CFR 232.203(b)(8). Refresher training is required at intervals not to exceed 3 years, and must consist of classroom and hands-on PO 00000 Frm 00179 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 training, as well as testing. CN states the training will better equip CN employees to perform Class I freight air brake tests and there will be no impact on safety. The instructor-led simulation is based on performance of a Class I freight air brake test and is designed to place the user in a virtual realistic scenario. The user is required to perform a variety of inspection tasks relating to preprogrammed defects including, but not limited to, closed cut-out cocks, uncoupled air hoses, closed angle cocks, improperly positioned retainer valves, fouled brake rigging, and using a twoway end-of-train device. CN states that it is often difficult to stage various types of freight air brake equipment with defects to demonstrate the location of key components. CN also states that the simulation allows CN to control the environment and employees are better able to examine components of the air brake system. Furthermore, given the restrictions of person-to-person contact related to COVID–19, safety is further enhanced by utilizing the simulation. CN proposes to apply this waiver system-wide to all CN personnel responsible for performing Class I freight air brakes tests. CN explains it may use the simulation as a supplement at initial training, but it will not replace traditional hands-on training employees receive at initial training. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested parties desire an opportunity for oral comment and a public hearing, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the appropriate docket number and may be submitted by any of the following methods: • Website: https:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the online instructions for submitting comments. • Fax: 202–493–2251. • Mail: Docket Operations Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, W12– 140, Washington, DC 20590. • Hand Delivery: 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, Room W12–140, Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1
