Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0029; Maryland Three Airports: Enhanced 
Security Procedures for Operations at Certain Airports in the 
Washington, DC Metropolitan Area Flight Restricted Zone, 49 CFR part 
1562. TSA's regulations impose requirements and security procedures on 
airport operators of three Maryland airports located within the 
Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area FRZ (Maryland Three Airports),\1\ and 
on individuals operating aircraft to or from these airports. The 
information collected is used to determine compliance with 49 CFR part 
1562, subpart A.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Maryland Three Airports are: College Park Airport (CGS), 
Potomac Airfield (VKX), and Washington Executive/Hyde Field (W32).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Part 1562, subpart A, allows an individual who is approved by TSA 
to operate an aircraft to or from one of the Maryland Three Airports or 
to serve as an airport security coordinator at one of these airports. 
In order to be approved, a pilot or airport security coordinator 
applicant is required to submit information and successfully complete a 
security threat assessment. As part of this threat assessment, the 
applicant must submit his or her fingerprints and undergo a criminal 
history records check and a check of Government terrorist watch lists 
and other databases to determine whether the individual poses, or is 
suspected of posing, a threat to transportation or national security. 
An applicant will not receive TSA's approval under this analysis if TSA 
determines or suspects the applicant of being a threat to national or 
transportation security.
    Applicants can be fingerprinted at the Ronald Reagan Washington 
National Airport's (DCA) badging office and any participating airport 
badging office or law enforcement office located nearby to the 
applicant's residence or place of work. Applicants must present the 
following information to TSA, using TSA Form 418, as part of the 
application process: Full name; Social Security number; date of birth; 
address; phone numbers; current and valid airman certificate or current 
and valid student pilot certificate; current medical certificate; a 
list of the make, model, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
aircraft registration number for each aircraft the pilot intends to 
operate at Maryland Three Airports; one form of Government-issued 
picture ID; the certificate of completion of the FAA DC Special Flight 
Rules Area training; and fingerprints. Although not required by the 
rule, TSA asks applicants to voluntarily provide an email address and 
emergency contact phone number to facilitate immediate communication 
that might be necessary when operating in the FRZ or helpful during the 
application process.
    TSA also provides an option to submit certain documents for the 
application by email. For example, applicants no longer need to submit 
the required documentation to the FAA Flight Standards District Offices 
in-person, but may submit the information to TSA electronically at 
[email protected]. This option does not apply to fingerprints, which 
continue to be collected in-person at the various locations.
    TSA receives approximately 369 applications annually and estimates 
applicants spend approximately 5.75 hours to prepare and submit the 
information to TSA, which is a total annual burden of 2,121.75 hours.
