Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) invites public comment on an existing information collection requirement abstracted below that will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for renewal in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act. The collection involves conducting background checks for all aliens and other designated individuals seeking flight instruction (``candidates'') from Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-certified flight training providers. Through the information collected, TSA will determine whether a candidate is a threat to aviation or national security, and thus prohibited from receiving flight training. Additionally, flight training providers are required to conduct a security awareness program for their employees, and to maintain records associated with this training.

Type: Notice
Date: 2008-06-06
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) invites public comment on a new information collection requirement abstracted below that the agency will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act. The collection will include the submission of information pertaining to security concerns specific to each individual airport, as perceived by the airport operators of approximately 3,000 general aviation airports. The information collected is part of a program designed to perform a standardized threat and vulnerability assessment program for general aviation airports. The information collected will also be used to provide context for a feasibility study of the development of a program, based upon a risk-management approach, to provide grants to operators of general aviation airports for projects to upgrade security at such airports.
