Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Certificated 
Training Centers--Simulator Rule

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: 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. To determine regulatory compliance, there is a need for 
airmen to maintain records of certain training and recency of 
experience; a training center has to maintain records of student's 
training, employee qualification and training, and training program 

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by February 5, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathy DePaepe at (405) 954-9362, or by 
email at: [email protected].

    OMB Control Number: 2120-0570.
    Title: Certificated Training Centers--Simulator Rule.
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: 14 CFR 142.73 requires that training centers maintain 
records for a period of one year to show trainee qualifications for 
training, testing, or checking, training attempts, training checking, 
and testing results, and for one year following termination of 
employment the qualification of instructors and evaluators providing 
those services. The information is maintained by the certificate holder 
and subject to review by aviation safety inspectors (operations), 
designated to provide surveillance to training centers to ensure 
compliance with airman training, testing, and certification 
requirements specified in other parts of the 14 CFR.
    Respondents: Approximately 113 training centers and associated 
satellite facilities.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.

    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. The agency will summarize and/or include 
your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information
