Although additional detail is being provided, there is no change to what information is being collected or how it is being used by FAA. There are two distinct collections described here. First, Training providers that want to and are eligible to deliver the Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) Certification Training Program (CTP) submit a course for approval. This includes curriculum information, training resources, flight simulation training devices and other training aids to be used, instructor training information, and course and testing materials. FAA aviation safety inspectors review all of the information to determine if the program complies with the applicable requirements of 14 CFR 61.156. The programs that comply with the minimum requirements receive approval and are issued an operation specification (OpSpec), training specification (TSpec), or letter of authorization (LOA), as appropriate to the applicant, to begin offering the course for applicants that seek an ATP certificate with a multiengine class rating. The OpSpecs and TSpecs are tracked in the FAA’s Web-Based Operations Safety System (WebOPSS) so principal inspectors can manage what their certificate holder is authorized to train. Principal inspectors of pilot schools also track LOAs issued to their certificate holder. Continuing to allow training providers to seek approval for the ATP CTP is necessary because this specific course of training is required for all pilot applicants seeing a multiengine ATP certificate. This is a one-time submission for initial course approval. Any program revisions are accomplished through the existing course revision processes and do not apply to this collection. Second, institutions of higher education that seek the authority to certify its graduates meet the minimum requirements of 14 CFR 61.160 will submit an application for approval. The collection requires the applicant to provide its pilot school certificate number as well as the pilot school certificate number that is being contracted to perform flight training. The application also requires aviation degree and course information to enable a determination for what meets the requirements of 14 CFR 61.160. The applications are received and reviewed by an FAA aviation safety inspector. If the application meets the requirements, the institutions of higher education receive a LOA for its degree program(s) and are then authorized to place a certifying statement on the transcripts of eligible graduates indicating he or she is eligible for a restricted privileges ATP certificate. This information is collected on occasion. There is a one-time submission for authorization. Additional submissions are only required if there are significant changes in the program or the institution of higher education seeks to add eligible courses or degree programs to its authorization.
