On May 20, 2004 the FAA granted the Aircraft Owner and Pilot Association’s (AOPA) petition to extend Exemption 7112, as amended. This Exemption allows AOPA members to provide local sightseeing flights at charity and community events without having to comply with the drug and alcohol misuse prevention requirements of FAR Part 135. The extension extends the term of the Exemption to June 30, 2006. A copy of the letter extending the Exemption is available for review here.
In order to qualify for the Exemption, AOPA members must comply with the conditions and limitations contained in the Exemption that pertain to each individual event, as well as to the individual pilot and organization sponsoring each event. These conditions and limitations are contained in the letter extending the Exemption. For further information regarding the Exemption, click here.
