Document Number: 2017-23890
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-11-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for a voluntary information collection. The collection is part of FAA's goal to more effectively and efficiently address noise complaints or inquiries it receives. The collection includes information such as name, email address, street or cross street, city, state, zip code and a description of the aircraft noise complaint or inquiry. The level of information to be collected is necessary to allow FAA to respond to the noise complaint or inquiry. Currently, the FAA receives noise complaints or inquiries in many formats sent to many different people in the agency. This collection will provide clear points of entry at the FAA regional and headquarters level for the public to submit noise complaints or inquiries using a web based system with consistent collection fields that will populate a national database.
