Amendment to the Definition of Unmanned Aircraft Accident
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) proposes amending the definition of ``Unmanned aircraft accident'' by removing the weight-based requirement and replacing it with an airworthiness certificate or airworthiness approval requirement. The weight threshold is no longer an appropriate criterion because unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) under 300 lbs. are operating in high-risk environments, such as beyond line-of-sight and over populated areas. The proposed definition will allow the NTSB to be notified of and quickly respond to UAS events with safety significance.
Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request; [OMB Control No. 3147-0001]
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) offers the public and Federal agencies the opportunity to comment regarding the NTSB's intent to submit an Information Collection Request (ICR) seeking reinstatement, with change, of a previously-approved information collection (IC) for which approval for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control No. 3147-0001 has expired. This 60-Day Notice informs the public and Federal agencies that they may submit comments directly to the NTSB regarding this IC.
