Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 42 / Thursday, March 3, 2022 / Notices 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. Estimated Average Burden per Response: We anticipate 31 new applications at a rate of 0.5 hours for a total of 15.5 hours. We also anticipate 263 applications for renewals at a rate of 0.5 hours for a total of 131.5 hours. 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: We anticipate a total annual burden of 27,740 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on February 28, 2022. Dwayne C. Morris, Project Manager, Flight Standards Service, General Aviation and Commercial Division.
