approved information collection activities in the ``Qualification,

    On November 12, 2013, the FAA published a final rule entitled 
``Qualification, Service and Use of Crewmembers and Aircraft 
Dispatchers'' (78 FR 67800). This final rule revises the training 
requirements for pilots in air carrier operations. The regulations 
enhance air carrier pilot training programs by emphasizing the 
development of pilots' manual handling skills and adding safety-
critical tasks such as recovery from stall and upset. The final rule 
also requires enhanced runway safety training and pilot monitoring 
training to be incorporated into existing requirements for scenario-
based flight training and requires air carriers to implement remedial 
training programs for pilots. The FAA expects these changes to 
contribute to a reduction in aviation accidents. Additionally, the 
final rule revises recordkeeping requirements for communications 
between the flightcrew and dispatch; ensures that personnel identified 
as flight attendants have completed flight attendant training and 
qualification requirements; provides civil enforcement authority for 
making fraudulent statements; and, provides a number of conforming and 
technical changes to existing air carrier crewmember training and 
qualification requirements. The final rule also includes provisions 
that provide opportunities for air carriers to modify training program 
requirements for flightcrew members when the air carrier operates 
multiple aircraft types with similar design and flight handling 
    This final rule will result in new information collection 
requirements. As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. 3507(d)), the FAA submitted these information collection 
amendments to OMB for its review.
    On January 9, 2014, OMB approved the information collection 
request. The OMB control number is 2120-0739.

Technical Amendment

    The FAA lists OMB control numbers assigned to its information 
collection activities in 14 CFR 11.201(b). Accordingly, this technical 
amendment updates 14 CFR 11.201(b) to display OMB control number 2120-
0739 associated with the information collection activities in the final 
rule, Qualification, Service and Use of Crewmembers and Aircraft 
Dispatchers. See 78 FR 67800.
    Because this amendment is technical in nature and results in no 
substantive change, the FAA finds that the notice and public procedures 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA 
finds good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make the amendment 
effective in less than 30 days.
