Respondents: The FAA currently insure 31 U.S. air carriers through its Non-Premium Aviation Insurance Program at the request of other Federal agencies. We estimate the addition of one new air carrier to the program each year. In addition, air carriers insured will be required to provide and update information on an ongoing basis as a condition of insurance coverage and to remain eligible for insurance policy renewals. Frequency: The initial application for insurance is required only from air carriers that have not previously received aviation insurance from the FAA. We estimate one new air carrier will need to submit an application annually; 6 insured air carriers will need to update basic information submitted on their initial application, such as business name and/or address, annually; 31 insured air carriers will be required to provide one commercial insurance policy to the FAA annually by uploading an electronic image into the FAA’s Aviation Insurance Data Management System (AIDMS) annually; and 31 insured air carriers will need to update their Schedule of Aircraft with aircraft registration data adding and removing a total of 550 aircraft to or from AIDMS, annually. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Initial Application—4 hours; Commercial Policy Submission—10 minutes; Business Information Update— 5 minutes; and Aircraft Schedule Update—2 minutes per aircraft. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 28 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on February 14, 2022. James W.
