[Docket No. FAA-2021-0861]


Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Fractional 
Aircraft Ownership Programs

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Transportation (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 Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information 
collection. Fractional Ownership is a program that offers increased 
flexibility in aircraft ownership. Owners purchase shares of an 
aircraft and agree to share their aircraft with others having an 
ownership share in that same aircraft. Owners agree to put their 
aircraft into a ``pool'' of other shared aircraft and to lease their 
aircraft to another owner in that pool. This collection is necessary to 
ensure compliance with relevant safety regulations.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by November 22, 2021.

ADDRESSES: Please send written comments:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    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 
collection.
    OMB Control Number: 2120-0684.

collection.

fractional owner must comply with the requirements of 14 CFR part 91, 
subpart K. Information is used to determine if these entities are 
operating in accordance with the minimum safety standards of these 
regulations. The FAA will use the information it reviews and collects 
to evaluate the effectiveness of the program and make improvements as 
needed, and ensure compliance with and adherence to regulations.
    Respondents: Nine fractional ownership operators with 557 aircraft.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 1 hour, 20 minutes.
