Title: Application for Pilot School Certification. Form Numbers: 8420–8. Type of Review: This is a renewal of an information collection. Background: The information on FAA From 8420–8, Application for Pilot School Certification, is required from applicants who wish certification as a pilot school with the associated ratings, or who wish to renew their pilot school certification. On previous renewals, the title of this information collection and notice was ‘‘Pilot Schools—FAR 141’’. We have revised the name of this information collection as the term ‘‘FAR’’ is no longer used to reference aviation regulations. Because of this change, and to add clarity, we are using the name of the FAA form 8420–8, Application for Pilot School Certification. Pilot schools are mandated to report information to the FAA and to keep specific records. Pilot schools train private, commercial, flight instructor, and airline transport pilots, along with training for associated ratings in various types of aircraft. The FAA form 8240– 8 is necessary to assure continuing compliance with part 141, renewal of pilot school certificates every 24 months, and for any amendments to pilot school certificates. The FAA is also making a burden adjustment to the number of pilot schools. Currently, this number is 527. We estimate 31 new applications for an original certification annually from applicants for a pilot school certificate. We estimate 263 applications for renewal annually. This figure represents approximately half of the current 527 certificated pilot schools. Respondents: Respondents include new applications, renewals of the pilot school certification, and amendments to an existing pilot school. Frequency: Every 24 months certificated pilot schools must renew their pilot school certification.

Additionally, we estimate 20 applications for an amendment to their pilot school certificate at a rate of 0.5 hours for a total burden of 10.0 hours. Estimated Total annual Burden: The cumulative total burden is estimated to be 157 hours per year. Issued in Washington, DC, on October 21, 2021. Jean M.

ACTION: Notice of public meeting. AGENCY: The FAA is hosting a virtual Inclusive Language Summit to present and discuss recommendations the Agency has received that promote the institution of inclusive language throughout the FAA. The Summit will provide a platform for the public to comment and provide additional recommendations to the FAA as it develops an enterprise-wide initiative to adopt language that is both genderneutral and inclusive. In the spirit of bringing all voices to the conversation, the FAA seeks participation from all members of the public; stakeholders in public agencies; academia; not-for profit institutions; individuals working in the area of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA); and the aerospace community. Input from a diverse audience will assist the FAA in developing policies, procedures and plans for implementation of terminology that is inclusive in nature in all aspects of FAA governance and oversight as well as in the international context under FAA’s global leadership. DATES: The virtual meeting will be held on November 10, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Requests for accommodations to a disability must be received by November 1, 2021. Written comments or recommendations will be received until November 30, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas Cuddy, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Ave. SW, Washington, DC 20591; telephone (202) 267–5869; email: DEIA@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The FAA’s mission is to provide the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world. We strive to reach the next level of safety and efficiency and to demonstrate global leadership in how we safely integrate new users and technologies into our aerospace system. Because language matters, embracing diversity and inclusion will have a significant impact on bringing all voices into the conversation to help further the FAA’s mission. To lead the aerospace industry into the next century, the FAA must actively promote values of DEIA. The words and language that we use in all communication channels, both for internal and external use, as well as rules, regulations and associated policies and guidance, must match this objective. If any individual employee, contractor or industry partner feels excluded or marginalized because of language or words, the work of the agency suffers and opportunities for achievement are diminished. The FAA has initiated efforts to expand inclusive language across the Agency. In 2019, the FAA first tasked the Federal Women’s Program to begin to develop recommendations for gender neutral language. Furthermore, in February 2021, the FAA tasked the Drone Advisory Committee (DAC) to develop recommendations for genderneutral language as an alternative to gender specific terms currently used in the drone and aviation communities. The FAA also tasked DAC to take the lead to facilitate the adoption of genderneutral language throughout the drone community and provide recommendations that organizations across the industry and community can implement. The DAC presented its recommendations to the FAA in June 2021 and they are posted on the FAA’s DAC web page.1 Please refer to page 110 of the June 2021 DAC meeting ebook for a recommended list of changes. 1 See pages 97–136 of the Drone Advisory Committee Public e-Book at https://www.faa.gov/ uas/programs_partnerships/drone_advisory_ committee/media/DAC_Public_eBook_06_23_ 2021.pdf.
