Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 83 / Monday, May 3, 2021 / Notices analyses are complete. Only analyses and reports of aggregate data will be produced and released. Failure to collect data on industry incorporation of SAFO 17007 recommendations will impact the quality of future FAA guidance provided to address manual flight operations. As such, it may also jeopardize future manual flight operations in an increasingly automated environment. SAFO 17007 encourages operators to practice manual flight in an operational environment; however, increased use of flight deck automation from NextGen National Airspace improvements will limit practice opportunities resulting in an increased need to make other improvement, which may be addressed through future FAA guidance. Changes from 60-day Federal Register Notice (FRN): The 60-day FRN listed 1,224 employees of U.S. Part 121 and Part 135 operators as the potential number of respondents, 30 minutes for the average burden per response, and 621 total burden hours. The 30-day FRN revises the respondent universe to 972 employees due to an examination of DOT and FAA records of Part 121 and Part 135 operators and a decision to limit the respondent universe of Part 135 operators to those operating 3 or more turbo-jet aircraft. Average burden per response was corrected to 20 minutes to reflect the average completion time instead of the upper estimate. This results in a new total burden estimate of 321 hours. Respondents: 972 employees of U.S. Part 121 and Part 135 operators who lead departments responsible for Operations and Standards, Training, and Safety. Frequency: One time. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 20 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 20 minutes per respondent, 321 total burden hours.
