Compatibility Planning

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. The respondents are those airport operators voluntarily 
submitting noise exposure maps and noise compatibility programs to the 
FAA for review and approval.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by March 29, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kathy DePaepe at (405) 954-9362, or by 
email at: Kathy.A.DePaepe@faa.gov.

    OMB Control Number: 2120-0517.
    Title: Airport Noise Compatibility Planning.
    Form Numbers: There are no FAA forms associated with this 
    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 
    Respondents: Approximately 15 airport operators.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 3882.6 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 56,160 hours.

    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
