2018-11326. Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Airport Noise Compatibility Planning  

  • Start Preamble


    Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


    Notice and request for comments.


    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 to renew an information collection. The collection involves information on voluntary airport noise compatibility programs. The respondents are airport operators that voluntarily submit noise exposure maps and noise compatibility programs to the FAA for review and approval. The information to be collected is necessary because noise compatibility program measures are eligible for Federal grants-in-aid if they are provided to FAA for review in approval in advance.


    Written comments should be submitted by July 24, 2018.


    Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Barbara Hall, Federal Aviation Administration, ASP-110, 10101 Hillwood Parkway, Fort Worth, TX 76177.

    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of the collected information.

    OMB Control Number: 2120-0517.

    Title: Airport Nosie Compatibility Planning.

    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this collection.

    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.

    Background: The voluntarily submitted information from the current CFR part 150 collection, e.g., airport noise exposure maps and airport noise compatibility programs, or their revisions, is used by the FAA to conduct reviews of the submissions to determine if an airport sponsor's noise compatibility program is eligible for Federal grant funds. If airport operators did not voluntarily submit noise exposure maps and noise compatibility programs for FAA review and approval, the airport operator would not be eligible for the set aside of discretionary grant funds.

    Respondents: Approximately 15 airport operators.

    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 3,950 hours.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 59,250 hours.
