Federal Aviation Administration

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Report of 
Inspections Required by Airworthiness Directives

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. Airworthiness Directives are regulations issued to require 
correct corrective action to correct unsafe conditions in aircraft, 
engines, propellers, and appliances. Reports of inspections are often 
needed when emergency corrective action is taken to determine if the 
action was adequate to correct the unsafe condition. The respondents 
are aircraft owners and operators.

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: 2120-0056.
    Title: Report of Inspections Required by Airworthiness Directives.
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
    Type of Review: Renewal of an information collection.
    Background: Title 14 CFR part 39, Airworthiness Directives (AD), 
authorized by Sec. Sec.  40113(a), 44701, and 44702 of Title 49 United 
States Code, prescribes how the FAA issues ADs. The FAA issues ADs when 
an unsafe condition is discovered on a specific aircraft type. If the 
condition is serious enough and more information is needed to develop 
corrective action, specific information may be required from aircraft 
owners/operators. If it is necessary for the aircraft manufacturer or 
airworthiness authority to evaluate the information, owners/operators 
will be instructed to send the information to them.
    Respondents: Approximately 1,120 aircraft owners/operators.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 3,080 hours.

ADDRESSES: Send comments to the FAA at the following address: Ms. Kathy 
DePaepe, Room 126B, Federal Aviation Administration, AES-200, 6500 S. 
MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73169.
    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 

    Issued in Washington, DC, on November 29, 2012.
