The type of information collected depends upon the purpose of the application. Both waiver and flight authorization requests must include the purpose of the flight, the aircraft type and registration number, including aircraft operator’s company name and address, and the proposed itinerary. When applying for a waiver, the aircraft operator must submit the above information about the flight and provide the names, dates and places of birth, and Social Security or passport numbers for all passengers and crew on board the flight for TSA to perform a STA on each individual.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be 
available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. 
Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following 
information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to

    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0033; TSA Airspace Waiver Program. TSA is 
seeking approval to extend this collection of information. The airspace 
waiver program allows U.S. and foreign general aviation aircraft 
operators to apply for approval to operate in U.S. restricted airspace, 
including flying over the United States and its territories. This 
program includes both processing of applications for airspace waivers 
and flight authorizations for flights operating under the Ronald Reagan 
Washington National Airport (DCA) Access Standard Security Program (see 
subpart B of 49

[[Page 52167]]

CFR part 1562), which requires name-based security threat assessments 
(STAs) for all passengers, flight crews and armed security officers on 
board each flight. TSA uses the information to conduct STAs of persons 
on these flights to protect against and mitigate threats to 
transportation or national security.
    TSA collects information from applicants applying for a waiver or 
flight authorization either online via https://waivers.faa.gov, or by 
completing a waiver or flight authorization form, which can be 
requested via facsimile. To ensure adequate time to process the 
information and obtain approval, TSA recommends that applicants submit 
the request electronically within five business days before the start-
date of the flight.
    The type of information collected depends upon the purpose of the 
application. Both waiver and flight authorization requests must include 
the purpose of the flight, the aircraft type and registration number, 
including aircraft operator's company name and address, and the 
proposed itinerary. When applying for a waiver, the aircraft operator 
must submit the above information about the flight and provide the 
names, dates and places of birth, and Social Security or passport 
numbers for all passengers and crew on board the flight for TSA to 
perform a STA on each individual. Likewise, to obtain a flight 
authorization, the aircraft operator must submit the same information 
as for when applying for waiver on all passengers and flight crews, and 
as well as for armed security officers on board each flight for TSA to 
perform a name-based STA on each individual. The information collected 
about passengers, crew, and armed security officers, as applicable, 
must include names, dates and places of birth, and Social Security or 
passport numbers.
    The estimated number of respondents is 8,801, and the annual 
reporting burden is 6,785 hours.
